I have got Samsung Q1 Ultra with Debian Squeeze on it. Everything works okay, except touchscreen.

The arrow almost does not respond to touching -- it only moves once in a while to a random place after the screen being touched.

I have tried to calibrate the screen using xinput-calibrate, but it did not do anything, as the arrow did not respond to touching.

X11 generates configuration on start up, so I dont have Xorg.conf to append, but I have /user/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf.

Should I try a different driver (if there are others)? Or is there some configuration that needs to be done? Or what might be wrong?

It happens the same on Whezze? – Braiam Dec 5 '13 at 23:31

Following this page, Debian support for touchscreen is incomplete/under development.
You need to play a lot, and upgrade your Debian at least to wheezy (or maybe jessie).
