Re: touchscreen support in Debian?

REALLY? you have 30 days to return it. if you want unix and touchscreen get an Apple.

don't use debian haphazardously (without knowing full well what can happen / if it will work) thinking you'll save time or money. that's not what linux is for. doing so could easily leave you no-where, even with a computer you can't personally fix, after days.

if you are worried about money return it get an (apple). if not, then of course they say, "hacking is no crime" :) (do they say that still?)

I can't say with absolute certainty because of the myriad patches and versions floating around, but squeeze *should*
support the required multi-touch driver in-kernel and definitely has the XI2.2 protocol in the x.org server.  It should
just work.
