  • linux distros are looking more and more crazy

    i tried ubuntu 12 , these few last days with a computer made by HP : a Touchsmart .

    the os install was quite quick and os seems working , gnome 3 is as bad as it always be , problem i want to talk and show is the touch one .
    if you read french , have look at these 2 links :

    the second being more recent , there is a big change : a new driver "nwFermi" and most of the previous text is removed

    both says to install xserver-xorg-input-evtouch ...

    if you read this page :

    then you learn this driver is dead until 11.04 a year now ...
    and for the first time xserver-xorg-input-elographics that a setting to found : "Note: edit the Device value (/dev/ttyUSB0) to match the input device name the touch-screen input has."

    this package is existing with u12.04 but does not work , may be because i have no idea about the ttyusb0 [there are none in the /dev]

    i tried nwfermi :
    but it requires a little driver that is not up-to-date :
    the last release was for previous u11.10 ....

    so this is it : Xmas ubuntu , build some os without drivers ....[may be the only manner of having something stable...every 6 month..??]
    or try to set a standard for them to live long ....
    may be you ll have "customers"
