Software fix… Part One

I have finaly figured out why I have been having problems with the OS locking up. It was the driver for the touch screen it was using a generic driver that was made by linux users. The driver that originaly came with the touch screen would never install so I just threw it away because I figured the linux community version would be better any way.

In order for the driver to install it needed to modify a file called xorg.conf. However in Ubuntu (and other newer distrobutions of linux), xorg has grown sophisticated enough to auto detect the settings provided by xorg.conf, so they removed it by default…

xorg is setup to use xorg.conf if it is present, so all I had to do was generate one (which can be done in GRUB), and then the touch screen driver can install!

Next I need to find a way to get samba to start automatically.
