Ubuntu 11.10 on an Acer Aspire All-in-One AZ3771

This is a very strange issue. This is what xinput list shows:


⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ IDEACOM IDC 6651 id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Primax Wireless Device id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ 1.3M WebCam id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Primax Wireless Device id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ ITE8713 CIR transceiver id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]IDEACOM IDC 6651 is my touchscreen. Right now, it behaves like a touchpad... a very unresponcive one. I can move the mouse pointer but I can't click.

I installed calibrate touchscreen and I get this:


Error: No calibratable devices found.Ok. So I figured I could fix the issue by removing the package "xserver-xorg-input-synaptics" thinking this is what is setting my touchscreen as a mouse. I remove this and "xserver-xorg-input-all" (I have to I guess) then reboot.

xinput list gives me this (same thing):


⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ IDEACOM IDC 6651 id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Primax Wireless Device id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ 1.3M WebCam id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Primax Wireless Device id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ ITE8713 CIR transceiver id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]AND calibrate touchscreen NOW detects my IDEACOM hardware which still works like a touchpad (can't calibrate it, but it's a better start). However, doing this messes up my ralink ra3090 wifi card where it will detect networks but struggle like crazy to connect, but never will.

So how to I get my touchscreen to STOP working like a touchpad ALL without losing my wifi capabilities?

I would really appreciate some assistance here. I've tried everything I could and STILL can't figure out how to get my touchscreen to work correctly.

Whats funny: The Ideacom IDC 6651 is supposedly "On a certified system (http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/component/input:10B11-TOUCH)" and I would assume that means that it works. Why is this?

Bump, I've been working on this for hours now and I still can't figure it out.
