OK.... the answer is:
download and install (in ubuntu software center) "xinput_calibrator" ... then 'run' xinput_calibrator
.... click on the 4 x's that appear and your are calibrated...
you may have to do this everytime you boot up, but im sure there is a fix for that... im running cf29H... had same issue... its fixed now...

The touch screen on these models do not have a calibration setting. They work or they don't. If it not working properly you can try uninstalling the drivers for the touch screen, then reboot. The machine will find the touch screen and reinstall the drivers automatically. Also check for any updated drivers at Panasonic's support site. Then check the connection for the touch screen, the touch screen has a separate connection than the screen, and it may have worked loose or have a little dirt or corrosion built up. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid that the touch screen may be wearing out, nothing you can do for this.

No signal how do I fix it


You have not said what model garmin nuvi ?
The touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi GPS usually loses sensitivity or stops responding if it's lost calibration.
This usually happens after prolonged usage.
Touchscreen problems are also caused by dirt, smudges and improper care.
If your Garmin nuvi's screen isn't performing as expected, Garmin provides solutions and tips to not only improve the device's performance, but prevent premature wear and tear.
Calibrating the Screen

If the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen isn't working, you need to calibrate the screen.
Calibration resets and repositions the screen for optimal performance without deleting saved settings.
Before calibrating the screen, press and hold the "Power" button to turn off the device.
Pressing and holding the "Power" button again for about 30 seconds automatically displays the calibration screen.
Pressing the dot on the white screen calibrates the touchscreen automatically.

Updating Software.
If The Garmin nuvi's touchscreen is still unresponsive, updating the device's firmware to the latest version can solve operating system problems that lead to touchscreen problems.
Before updating the device's firmware, connect the GPS to the computer using the USB cable. When the computer detects the GPS, the "AutoPlay" menu appears on the screen.
Tapping the arrow on the menu automatically opens the "myGarmin Agent" download page.
From there, follow the prompts to update your Garmin nuvi's software quickly and safely.


Cleaning. In some cases, the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen won't respond to touch if the screen is dirty. Touchscreens are sensitive to dirt and smudges that decrease sensitivity.
If the screen is dirty, cleaning it with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth improves performance.
If the screen is severely dirty, using water, isopropyl alcohol or eyeglass cleaner removes tough stains.
To avoid damaging the screen, apply liquid to a cloth instead of directly to the touchscreen before cleaning it.

Tips.

Refer to your Garmin nuvi's maintenance and storage information found on the device's manual prevents premature wear and tear.
If the screen stopped working after prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures or water, the device's hardware is most likely damaged.
In such a case, you need to contact Garmin for additional troubleshooting and possible repairs.
Attempting to disassemble and repair the GPS yourself only increases the risk of damaging the unit even further.
also it could be a battery problem if the nuvi is not getting power ?

Does not work on the edges, can not access start by touching. when the screen is touched the arrow appears about half an inch away


Sounds like the calibration for the touchscreen needs to be reset. If you check in the control panel, there should be a ELO shortcut that allows you to calibrate/test the touchscreen. Try running through the calibration and see if the touchscreen behavior improves. If the calibration doesn't fix it, then you may have an issue with the touchscreen itself.

My touchscreen doesnt work on my Ikasu 8gb media player for some reason anyone know how I can fix this?


If the touch screen does not work, it may be because it is out of calibration.
You can go into settings and navigate using the buttons to recalibrate the touchscreen.
Slide the on/off slider briefly. It should give you a menu.
Use the - button to scroll down to calibrate.
Push the M button
This gives the calibration screen.
Press the small square that appears in each corner, and finally in the center.
This should give you the touch screen, hopefully working.

There is a manual and other information here.

Cf-28


Hey, sorry bout that, for some reason I had cf27 in my head. You're right on the Windows calibration, but with the Linux system there isn't much out there. Here's a forum I found on the subject. You might read over it and see if it will work for you. There is a section on the touch screen towards the bottom.
