Dell Duo-gnome 3 touchscreen problem

Post by Rage » Sat Jan 14, 2012 6:41

Hi all,

I just installed Sabayon 7 gnome. Everything works out of the box; however, when I touch the screen, it defaults to Activities. I remembered when I use the live dvd with windows 7 installed, the touchscreen worked fine. Now, it's just a short cut for Activities.

How do I fix this? Where should I go to have the touchscreen works the way it should have worked.

I love Sabayon. I installed it on my desktop and my laptop.

I just use a live Sabayon DVD for KDE. It is actually not a default to Activities. When I touched the screen, the mouse went to the upper left hand corner. I am not sure what to do. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you
