    Samsung Q1 Ultra Touchscreen problem(A big thanks Cka3o4nik)

    1: I first installed 'xserver-xorg-input-evtouch' package by going to the main Ubuntu desktop menu, clicking onto 'System' then onto 'synaptic package manager, in the search box type EVTOUCH, this should bring up the package, then mark it for installation, and install.

    2: I then opened the 'File manager' in administrator mode by using the 'Run Applications' box, to do this hold the 'Alt' button and while held down press the 'F2' button, in the box that appears type ' gksudo nautilus ' file manager will open, click onto 'File system' and follow the folder path below:

    /usr/lib/X11/xorg,conf.d

    3:Open any file with it's name ending in '.conf' contained in the 'xorg.conf.d' folder, and without making any changes to the contents of the file you have opened, go to 'File' then 'Save as..', a window will now open, in the 'name' box rename the file to 11-touchkit.conf then click onto the '+' sign next to 'Browse for other folders' and navigate again by clicking first onto 'File System' then 'usr' > 'lib' > 'X11' > 'xorg,conf.d', you will see this folders contents, making sure you have followed all the above click the 'Save' button.

    4: While the 'File Manager' window remains open in 'administrator' mode (if not follow step 2 of these instructions to reopen), double click onto your newly created '11-touchkit.conf' file, be aware that the contents of this new file now need to be changed, in the Gedit app that has open the file, click onto 'Edit' then 'Select All' of which the contents should now be highlighted, then click onto 'Edit' then 'Delete', the file's contents should now be gone, copy and paste the instructions below into the blank page of file:-

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Touchkit Touch"
    MatchIsTablet "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "evtouch"
    Option "ReportingMode" "Raw"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons"
    Option "Emultate3Timeout" "50"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "On"
    Option "TapTimer" "200"
    Option "LongTouchTimer" "400"
    Option "MinX" "145"
    Option "MinY" "193"
    Option "MaxX" "3973"
    Option "MaxY" "3898"
    EndSection

    5: Click onto 'File' then 'Save', and now close your new document, if the 'File Manager' window is still open you should notice your new '11-touchkit.conf' file in the 'xorg.conf.d' folder

    6: Close the 'File Manager' window, (I notice whenever i open 'File Manager' using the gksudo nautilus instruction and then finish with it, it seems to make my desktop go blank, and I have to shut the Q1 Ultra down by holding the off/on switch in the 'off' position, it doesn't seem to do any permanent harm though)

    Is anyone able to modify this for Kubuntu? I am using Maverick, but the file structure is a little different in KDE and there is no Xorg.conf.d file in X11 folder. I don't know where to put the configuration file, or if the same file will work OK in Kubuntu.

    Hi badmotor,

    I've got touch screen working in Maverick KDE.

    Try this:

    1. Activate both backports lines in the "Origin of Packages" in KPackageKit via settings then install the evtouch driver.

    2. Copy and paste in terminal:

    kdesudo kate /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-touchscreen.conf

    Type in your password

    3. Then copy and paste into the text editor:

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Touchkit Touch"
    MatchIsTablet "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "evtouch"
    Option "ReportingMode" "Raw"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons"
    Option "Emultate3Timeout" "50"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "On"
    Option "TapTimer" "200"
    Option "LongTouchTimer" "10"
    Option "MinX" "130"
    Option "MinY" "210"
    Option "MaxX" "3950"
    Option "MaxY" "3898"
    EndSection

    And click on save.

    Reboot and all should be well

    To sort the right navigation keys in KDE type in terminal:

    kdesudo kate /lib/udev/keymaps/samsung-sq1us

    Adjust file the same as in my previous posting about ubuntu.

    Hi,

    I got 11.04 and just recently upgraded to 11.10. Everything works nicely. Unity is more fun with a touchscreen. The touchscreen had to be calibrated using xinput_calibrator (basically I got the same limits that have been published in this thread).

    Also, installed the scrolling plugin for firefox, now that fennec has disappeared:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...grab-and-drag/
    I tried to install the opera-mobile for meego (RPM through alien), but it gives me "Illegal instruction".

    Ok, it is not a dual-core 2011-style tablet, but I can run any ubuntu program on it (including spotify) so it beats android in many aspects and is fairly usable.

    Also found a neat brightness widget for unity:
