Lubuntu-users Digest, Vol 38, Issue 17

I believe it was Fedora 18, but I can't be sure (I think it was one of the first ones that had a tile-style intended for touch, because I remember having to disable that)... If it was, that would make the kernel : " Fedora 18 include: kernel 3.6.10 " ... I have 3.13.0-45 on my new lubuntu install... I'm not really sure how to get the specific module(s) I would need or how to integrate them though.

Hi Swerdfiger,
It may indeed be an Ubuntu/Debian issue.  The base kernel is different
from the Fedora kernel, so there may be some sort of differences in the
kernel modules or something else in that area.

others have suggest installing a proprietary driver, and I suggest that
you might need to find out the specific kernel modules you were using on
Fedora, and see if you can load those in Lubuntu.  This may be a fairly
simple issue to resolve, or it may be very difficult.

I am guessing that this may be an issue, as in 14.04, I and other PPC
users have experienced not being able to use 14.04 because a bug in
hw-detect (a hardware detection tool) that rendered many things unusable.
