How to get ubuntu 8.04 working with the DigiPoS "Toccare" Bezel Free Touch Screen

Not so frequently asked questions and stuff: 

Situation

Trying to use a DigiPoS "Toccare" Bezel Free Touch Screen with ubuntu 8.04.

Elements:

  • The graphic chipset of the PC is an intel GMA 3150.
  • The intel driver is too recent for ubuntu 8.04, so the only driver that works is the old vesa.
  • The resolution is limited to 800x600, but both the chipset and the screen support 1024x768.

Configuration

Find the correct Modeline using gtf.

# gtf 1024 768 60

You will have to configure xorg manually.
