I purchased a Thinkpad Helix, which is a touchscreen Thinkpad.
I immediately installed Ubuntu, replacing Windows. It mostly works except that the touchscreen only works well in Chromium/Chrome and not with other applications like the terminal, FireFox, Thunderbird, etc, etc. In Windows the touchscreen works flawlessly with any application.
Since I paid more and traded resources to get the touchscreen, I want it to work. So, I headed over to the manufacturer's website to look for Linux drivers and found this page
which indicates that only RHEL is supported.
I can make do with RHEL though I do not prefer it. However I know from my RHEL server at work that Chrome/Chromium cannot be run.
So, what I need to know to decide if I want to start over with RHEL is if I install RHEL will touchscreen work with FireFox and/or other apps like it does in Windows, or will I be even worse off, since the only app where it currently works fine (Chromium/Chrome) will not run on that OS?
