View Full Version : [xubuntu] Touch screen cannot install reliable.

I had problems with Beetronics monitors 10" touch, running an Egalax driver. Because of this, I try to change from Linux Mint 10 to Xubuntu, Ubuntu or whatever Linux is working for me.
Xubuntu can calibrate the touch screen, which I like in the user-interface. It seems very user-friendly, but is not working and therefore useless.


Sometimes the settings are not used. Sometimes it works for a few days and sometimes scaling is completely wrong after a reboot.

- When I install xinput_calibrator, do the calibration and create file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-settings.conf , this is usually working a few days.
- Also, I need to have to change a line into: /etc/default/grub and do sudo update-grub2
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="18042.noloop=1 usbhid.quirks=0xeef:0x1:0x40"


When I do : xrandr --output DVI1 --mode 800x600 inside ~/.xprofile then the scaling may go wrong completely...

Please help, until now I only get stability in Linux Mint 11 but then I also needed some udev rules. This gives Linux a bad name and is not user-friendly at all! This problem happens at 4 of my customers.

Herre is something wrong in Xorg.conf probably:
