Questions tagged as ['touchscreen']

We use Ubuntu 20.04 with Gnome 3.36.8 with x11 window system. We wish to use a webapplication/website in Chromium with EETI touchscreen.

Screen Orientation

I am new to Ubuntu. I have a spare Asus laptop, model Q552U with an intel i7 and an NVidia 940m. It has a touchscreen and the ability to flip the screen to the back of the laptop to be used as a tablet.

I currently cannot get the screen orientation right. It's rotated 90degrees to the right, so putting the laptop on its left side makes the screen orient to how it normally should in relation to th ...

User interface freezes on Ubuntu 21.04 when using touchscreen on dock
us flag

I have installed Ubuntu 21.04 on my laptop. When I use the touchscreen to open an application from the dock, there is a chance that the dock just freezes. It doesn't function anymore. Sometimes I try to press on an icon and it acts like I would press on another icon, sometimes it does nothing. And other GUI features of GNOME also act similar.

Why is this? And is there any permanent fix? I can fix ...

Touchscreen not working properly on my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15

It seems to work without a hitch up until I log in and the desktop is shown. It also had no problems using the touchscreen when I was just testing the laptop with a bootable USB device. But after that it doesn't seem to work. Sometimes the touchscreen just decides to work on it's own and doesn't stop working until I power down the device entirely.

Touchscreen rotation broken in 21.04

I usually rotate my touch screen like:

xinput set-prop "ILITEK ILITEK-TP" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 -1 1 1 0 0 0 0 1

This does not work in 21.04, maybe because of Wayland? However I have a 2-in-1 laptop with 21.04 and the touch coordinates automatically rotate when I rotate the device so there must because some command to do this.

Naturally you would think this would go into Settings bu ...

Touchscreen keyboard appears even when turned off
sa flag

I never want to use a touchscreen keyboard, but I do want to use my touchscreen as a mouse.

In settings, under universal access and typing, I've turned off the on-screen keyboard.

But whether the toggle switch is off or on, when I touch the screen, the keyboard blocks half the screen.
