I have an older laptop that has a reversible screen so it can be used as
a tablet PC but I have never used it like that (it currently has F10
installed). Are there Fedora utilities I can use to check to see if I
can get the touchscreen working with F10?
In general, if you assume that it's a wacom touchscreen, you can install
the linuxwacom package and play with wacdump to see if your pen/finger
generates useful movement information - have a google for it, there's
planty of info out there.

The reason I didn't mention the brand/model is that no-one would recognise
it - indeed the model isn't even listed on the manufacturer's site anymore
(T200C - http://www.clevo.com.tw/en).

I tried using wacdump with /dev/event/input[0-7] with no luck . .

Anything else to try?

This page says it's a Fujitsu Panel:

This page says the Linux drivers are available "on request":
http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/edevices/components/touchpanels/drivers.html

Googling gets these results:
http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=fujitsu+touch+panel+linux

The Linux Touch Screen HOWTO eventually leads to this:
http://www.conan.de/touchscreen/index.html

So, have you tried that?


After messing around getting rid of error messages from the modified
xorg.conf file - Xorg.0.log still seems to have an "event1" conflict with the keyboard but otherwise seems alright - however I don't getting any touch screen action. xorg.conf below:
