First off my apologies, in the chatroom I did not notice you did not have a UX but a U, sorry....

My idea would be to use the minimums supplied by Matt and keep the maximums at half value - see this post (3rd from the bottom)
http://www.micropctalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1919&page=13

Matt uses UDEV so refer to his page - this has a calibration screen. Increase your maximums, test then do again until you get it right. Going lower may be difficult but you can try....if you fail however you will lose all graphics capability and need to replac the config file being used with a backup using a very long command - again see my post for details.

If you do not backup your working config first I do not know how to recover from losing your graphics any other way - be careful.

The link I gave should give you enough info.

If you keep posting here I will keep answering as best I can.

Hope that was helpful.

I have a solution for you - try emailing Mattia - he was certainly very helpful to me when I emailed him.

I'm in the same boat - using the track stick drives me nuts - keeps registering as a left click. Any gurus here know how to disable the clicking of the track stick altogether? It's the only thing keeping me from being in love with Ubuntu on my UX.

Help with stick pointer button

Postby ramirojusto » Sun Sep 16, 2007 07:03

Hi:

I'm new in this forum. I noticed that everybody is trying to make the touch panel work with Ubuntu (that's to advanced for me yet!) I only want to disable the button function of the stick pointer. The button is too sensitive and I'm only able to work with an external mouse. I've been looking for this information for many days and I have not founded yet how to do it. Could you help me?

Thank you

Ramiro

UBUNTU is good... I tried also KUBUNTU.. Unfortunately both dont have the CALIBRATION option... In MAC OSX as well, touchscreen is not the perfect but better than UBUNTU...
