i’ve installed openSUSE 11.1 on my hp touchsmart tx2-1050ed,
and i want to get my touchscreen to work,

well it does work by default, a bit. but its not calibrated and it doesn’t recognize finger input, only while i use the pen, using my fingers will only make it click, or right click(2 fingers) @ cursor location, any thoughs on how to get started?

# uname -a
Linux linux-eime #1 SMP 2009-05-26 17:02:05 -0400 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


Touchscreen configuration is in System - COnfiguration - Sax2

yeah, right
all i find in sax2 is a option to enable touchscreen and 2 boxes to select my brand+model wich i have no clue how to find out, there’s also a drop-in box to select the connection port, further no calibrate option, also when i update my graphics driver it stops working completelly. anyone know how to get revelant info from my system to help setup and configure a touchscreen? i’ve tried the HCL but links seem broken


For HP laptops with n-trig touchscreen, see SDB:Howto install OpenSuSE on HP tx2-xxxx laptops - openSUSE

looks promissing, i’ll give it a try
many thx

I am having a related problem with my hp tx2z 1300,
