I'm just trying to understand all the different parts that allow the pen and touch to work.
2 issues I'm curious about/trying to fix
My pen isn't working at the moment.
My xinput list gives:
when i try xinput test 13 and move the stylus around the screen there is no output. Does that mean that the kernel is not reporting the pen? Do I have an incorrect module installed? I have latest git clone of xf86-input-wacom installed (i think i do..) and xsetwacom list gives:
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ N-Trig Touchscreen id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ N-Trig Pen eraser id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ N-Trig Pen stylus id=13 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ N-Trig MultiTouch id=14 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=16 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Macintosh mouse button emulation id=17 [slave pointer (2)]
N-Trig Pen eraser ERASER
N-Trig Pen stylus STYLUS
I was also wondering what the difference is with the N-Trig Touchscreen and N-Trig MultiTouch entries. Only the N-Trig MultiTouch entry gives any output when I try xinput test. Where does xinput get this list of devices from?
Thanks for any insight I'm more interested in how this all fits together rather than just getting it to work
Oh and I'm running Lucid
