There was one tester that drop by the test list and mentioned that
touchscreen on his Lenovo Ideapad S10-3t did not work which raised the
question what's the current status on out of the box touchscreen/tablet
support ( single/multi ) in the Kernel/Xorg/Gnome in Fedora?
Given that there are more and more touchscreen/tablets coming of the
product line and they are getting increased popularity with end user
perhaps it should be considered a F14 feature trying to get the best out
of the box touchscreen/tablets experience for the end user?
Hard to to tell without more information. The tablet screen itself
should definitely work as a pointer out-of-the-box if the device is
correctly detected by the kernel and X.
Whether the desktop is doing a good job at handling the device is a
different matter (though GTK3 has XInput2 support, so we should start
seeing things like GIMP being automatically configured).
Perhaps the project could try to sponsor those that are willing to
on it by providing them with tablets?
Find out whether the device is actually supported by the kernel, and
whether it was detected by X (xinput --list).
In any case, I don't like the "didn't work" type questions, because you
know nothing of the expectations, and actual results.
