Smile Touchscreen on HP tablet


I would like to get my touchscreen to work on my hp tx1320. I used a suggested howto from Ubuntu forums (running hardy amd-64) but it was difficult to follow as it was in German. Even running the translator from Dictionary.com (recommended!) I must have made a mistake somewhere because the touchscreen became semi-active but I lost sound. Any suggestions? And please be as detailed as possible. I'm still somewhat of a noob.

after posting, just had this idea: the wifi driver had to be done special with ndiswrapper and extracting the firmware (?). Would a similar operation work for the touchscreen? Presuming, of course, that I could find what type of touchscreen it is, driver and such... (I looked on HP's site and couldn't find what the touchscreen was. Pretty sure it isn't Wacom.)

what do you mean by "semi-active" and the sound problem is most likely from you rebuilding your kernel but not your modules, or changing something in the kernel, or even using a new kernel and not configuring your sound properly.
anyhow

semi-active

I could touch the screen with the stylus and a window would become active, but it was very unreliable, sometimes working and sometimes not.
