Aiptek 6000U tablet in Precise (12.04)
I've been able to follow instructions in these threads and on the Ubuntu community help wiki Aiptek page to get my old Aiptek tablet working in 12.04 - partially. However, I have the often mentioned problem that once I press on the stylus it doesn't register the pen being lifted. In gimp I can see the pressure sensitivity is working, but once I'm drawing I can't stop. It also messes with the buttons of my other pointers, so they don't register any clicks.
I have a feeling the problem could be the tablet simultaneously sending events as a tablet via /dev/input/eventX and as a mouse through the aggregate device /dev/input/mice. I have this feeling because years ago when I had this tablet working in linux changing my mouse device in X to something like /dev/input/mouse0 fixed the problem.
The difficulty I have in testing this theory is that I can't work out how to do this with the new way Xorg configurations work. Can anyone tell me how to force Xorg to NOT use /dev/input/mice?
