    Can a touchscreen use a synaptics suite?

    So far I have found no distribution that has really been designed for a tablet. Netbook remix, as I've discovered, is little more than Ubuntu with big icons on the desktop. This is next to useless if you haven't a keyboard, nor fingers that come to a fine point.

    So a rapid zoom function is clearly necessary, as the folks at Apple (blecchh) and Google have discovered, to really get good use out of a touchscreen.

    My touchscreen: Egalax.

    You might find this article interesting: Ubuntu to add multi-touch to Linux touchscreen laptops and desktops - Feature -

    Also, go to and check out meego and moblin, they may be what you need. I don't have a touch pad device, so can't get any more specific. Hope this helps.
