I would love to help you but I do not know.

I used a windows installer (WUBI) for Ubuntu so no partition was made for ubuntu and I therefore did not have any issues either installing or uninstalling.

hi giant thanks. luckily i was able to boot from cd and reinstall ubuntu. for some reason, external cd drive plugged into the base attachement vs plugged directly into the ux is different? i couldnt boot from cd when plugged into the base, but i was able to boot from cd when i plugged the usb into the ux itself.

question, how do i take off the mouse left click? its so sensitive so i click everytime i move the mouse.

Let us know if you try UDEV for better touchscreen recognition and how the calibration screen works - I should have done that before uninstalling.

Is it possible to dual boot Ubuntu without "disturbing" the residing XP....?

Best Regards.

Yes it is try here - no need to muck around with partitions. It will allow you to choose on boot-up which you run. You can uninstall from within XP.

Then use my instructions here (use the 3rd post from the bottom of the page):

Calibration

Postby technogeekchris » Fri Jul 27, 2007 14:26

HI,

I am using my VGN-U750P and have successfully installed UBUNTU. Now I have a problem with teh TOUSCHSCREEN. I visited this site and found the solution on UX machine. I have applied it and touchcreen is working. HOWEVER, the problem is the calibration. Its is not aligned on the sides of the screen. I want to know how you calculated the calibreation on the UX?? Please let me know... Or is there a calibration utility that can be installed on my SONY U device. THANKS...

I applied this one below:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Gunze touchscreen"
Driver "evdev"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event2"
Option "minx" "50"
Option "maxx" "970"
Option "miny" "90"
Option "maxy" "970"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Gunze touchscreen2"
Driver "evdev"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event4"
Option "minx" "50"
Option "maxx" "970"
Option "miny" "90"
Option "maxy" "970"
EndSection
