You mean 'touch screen drivers'?

http://www.conan.de/touchscreen/evtouch.html will help you.

You may need a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf for perfect results??

No, just a screen driver. I run a Compaq EVO and the screen mover in jitters. Every graphicasl effort sends the CPU @ 100 pct capacity, so I suspect I dont have a screen driver. Otherwise everything is OK...games, Blender3d or the like pose a problem. Also, I cant do any screen settings...

The install was done in VESA, so I suspect the installer did'nt install any drivers...
