Touch Screen support on FIC's CE-260 UMPC

Postby Nathan_S on Thu Jun 04, 2009 3:19 am

I consider pourchesing a CE-260 UMPC, it is sold in Israel without an OS because of conservative Israeli costumers which are not very familiar with LINUX's and MINT's high usability.
Because MINT is my main OS I would like to install it on this UMPC.
1) Does our distro support the touch screen on this system ?
2) Will there be a future distro costumized to Netbooks similar to Ubuntu Netbook Remix?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The support for touch screens is the same as in Ubuntu Jaunty and to be honest I can't really get a grip of the situation
It seems like a touch screen is treated similar to a wacom tablet - but perhaps only on the special notebook remix
There will be no netbook remix for Mint in the foreseeable future - mind you we are a small team

Thank you for the info. After reading more, according to your suggestion, I see that touch screens are still not calibrated well in Ubuntu Jaunty, As so I would like to know which net book, from your knowledge, is the most compatible with our distro to make a wiser purchase for Gloria Installation.

Sorry I have absolutely no experience with netbooks - some with laptops, but netbooks - no....
