From what I know and what I heard, Ubuntu does not support touchscreen monitors (as of now). So you might not find a luck on this. But do let us know if you know something in this line.

Maybe others should be able to help you.

I believe ubuntu support elo touchscreens (debian elographics driver).
Try xserver-xorg-input-elographics or something similar.

The same driver is available as an rpm which I recently installed Fedora 11. I used touchcal to calibrate (on sourceforge) however I am yet to make the driver beep when touched. Not sure if this is possible using this driver.

I tried compiling the driver myself by downloading the latest source from elo touch (still quite old) but had issue with x server versions. The driver did calibrate and beeped on touch but was unable to interact with the pointer on Fedora 11.

IF anyone has had better success than I on later kernels/Xorg I'd be glad to hear it.
