Why is my touch screen not working?

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP tx 1000 and my touch screen is not working.

Can anybody point me in the right direction on this issue?

I don't think Ubuntu 10.10 supports touch screens out of the box but maybe I'm wrong. Did it work then stop or has it never worked under Ubuntu?

Play Bonny!

Well, I am in the process of fixing a person's computer that decided because they did not have a working wifi NIC, formatting the ms os would be the way to fix it. However, after doing so he realized that he did not have a recovery cd to restore the os.

Now I am trying to get a stable version of Ubuntu 11.04 to mount to this HP tx 1000. The problem is that getting an OS to mount is next to impossible. But I am currently waiting for the upgrades to install. Approx: 1 hour and 10 minutes to go.

I will let you know if the touch screen works when I am done.
