Please don't send the same emails to more than one list. Basically
you'll send this kind of question to ubuntu-users at

If your Tablet PC is using wacom technologies - check with

lshal | grep Wacom

Then you'll have to use Option B) in the guide at

However, it's not for the faint of heart.

If you don't have a second screen connected, you will then be able to
calibrate your Tablet with the command


Choose stylus, then Calibrate.

If you're not using this kind of Tablet, someone else might help you.
