I've got the UK version of the NB30 and I've just managed to get the touch screen to work after reading this blog post (although I did need to so some steps differently and didn't need other steps): http://samiux.blogspot.com/2010/11/howt ... hnote.html
Here is what I did:
Identified the touchscreen device by typing lsusb
in a terminal and found:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0eef:480e D-WAV Scientific Co., Ltd
The hex numbers are important to note and are used in the next step, they also differ from the hex numbers in the samiux blog post.
Then I amended /etc/default/grub
(sudo nano /etc/default/grub) and made sure the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT
line said this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash usbhid.quirks=0xeef:0x480e:0x40"
Save and run this command in the terminal:
Now we need to stop a conflicting driver from loading, in the terminal enter:
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
At the end of this file add this line:
Save the file and reboot the machine. The touch screen should now (fingers crossed) work. I found I did not need the other steps in the original blog post (maybe these were only for 10.04).
Hope this helps.
