The only reason why that wouldn't work is if your video card/monitor isn't properly supported in which case you have to manually configure the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and add the resolutions manually. Hopefully the above works though.

Worked like a champ and as a by product it has fixed my calibration issue as well. Now when i reboot the touchscreen is calibrated correctly! No more disconnecting the usb cable to get it calibrated.
