3.0 touchscreen works. 5.0 upgrade touchscreen does not work

I am after some help.
I have a stone touchscreen laptop.
With bodhi 3.0 the touchscreen worked fine. Since upgrading to 5.0 the touchscreen has stopped working.
So what has changed between 3.0 and 5.0 and what do I need to do to get the touchscreen working again.?
Thanks for your help.

Hello there

We developers mostly work on Moksha desktop and some bijou around. I think your issue could be related to kernel. Bodhi 3.0 had by all means different kernel probably with better support for your touchscreen. Now you should find out the device name or (lspci outcome should help) and look around for newer Ubuntu solution which is Bodhi based on.

eturbo touch


I have tried 3 or 4 different ubuntu ditros but none have worked.

Only Bodhi 3.0 worked.
In the apps I remember that there was a touchscreen app. The icon was a blue thumb print. But I cant remember what it was called.

The touch screen shows up as an etubrbo touch. but lspci does not show it.

eturbo website does provide drivers.
See the attachment.

The problem is that the instructions say you need to mess with the xorg.conf file and it just doesnt work for me.
It seems that it is quite an old driver. The linux system has changed over the years and the instructions no longer work.

I had hoped that someone could point out what has changed since 3.0 and how to get back whatever was changed.
