Welcome to Ubuntu forums!
See post #384 for the devices. Your Bamboo P & T does not have a cursor. That's linuxwacom speak for the Wacom tablet mouse. The stylus is fine and should be there.
As for the clicking, jumping, etc. you should talk to Chris Bagwell on linuxwacom-discuss. I don't think he's ported all of the Ayuthia/ob1kenobi code over into xf86-input-wacom yet. He just solved one of the problems (emitKeysym crash):
And Peter already applied the patch to xf86-input-wacom. So I think he's getting closer.OK, turns out to be simple issue and unique to xf86-input-wacom. It
declares emitKeysym as a static function in wcmCommon.c and provides
no prototype for it in wcmTouchFilter.c.
Aligning prototypes to linuxwacom and it starts working like linuxwacom.
Hi, just pulled the latest code from the Bamboo branch of xf86-input-wacom and the touch is now usable. Nice. Saw a new property of Gesture value 3, but not the others (rightclickdistance for example). Will be keeping an eye on the updates!
Thank you all for the great work. I'm a new Wacom tablet user, and I'm really enjoying it. However I have a strange problem with my Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet. When I slowly move the pen towards the tablet, there is a point when the cursor starts to jump to the top-left corner and back to its original position very rapidly. This happens exactly the same time when the LED on the tablet turns from white to red. Even the LED starts to blink very fast at this point.
I'm not sure whether it is a software related problem, so I would like to know if you could reproduce this bug with your own tablet.
Cool! They're getting there. Chris is changing the gesture logic and adding new ones I think.
Don't worry you're not alone.
Jason (ob1) and Chris are seeing the jumps too. Chris says they are a lot less with his changes to gestures. Ping has added a new filter(s) to touch on the X side. Right now they're trying to figure out if the kernel side of things is contributing to the jumps and whether they need to add a filter there. Basically they're not sure they've traced it to the root cause. Which is what they'd like to do so they can fix it once and for all.
Thank you for your quick reply.
Hi, just wanted to say thanks for all the work. I have a Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) which I use as a substitute for the mouse. This works fine now! (with linuxwacom 0.8.5-9 and patch)
With 0.8.4-3 and patch, I had the problem that the pointer would jump some distance towards the top-left corner every time I took the pen away from the tablet, but this problem has disappeared now.
One thing that does not work out of the box is the eraser in GIMP.
Hopefully this does not create any confusion for anyone, but there is now a new 0.8.5-10 release and it contains ob1kenobi's patches. I have updated the first post to reflect the information. If I missed anything, please let me know.
