Yocto embedded Linux and Chromium touch events

I have a MarsBoard with an i.MX6 ARM processor and an Yocto embedded Linux. The board came with a touch screen, that works - at the moment - like a mouse. When I touch something, the mouse courser appears there. I also installed Chromium 35, based on Aura which - as I read - supports multi touch support. Though it doesn't work, even if I start the Chromium with touch enabled parameter. Websites, for instance with list, behaved not as I know it from Android or ChromeOS, furthermore the HTML / JavaScript mouse events won't be fired.

How can I dig into to solve this problem. I really would like to get a deeper understanding of what's going on or not, but I don't have a clue where to start. Could that be a problem of Chromium, Linux or the touch screen?

I really appreciate any kind of suggestion to solve this issue.
