    You're welcome. Sounds like they're working for you. Remember if you want to fine tune them you can just enter the xsetwacom command with the coordinate change in a terminal and it takes immediate effect. That makes manual tuning less of a pain.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04: Calibrate touch in HP tx2000

    I'm helping my brother set up his HP tx2000, and before I installed the script, touch and stylus were calibrated reasonably well without my having changed any settings, but pressure and the stylus buttons weren't working. On just running the script file I got a cascade of error messages, but despite this, the stylus buttons and pressure started working:

    Code:

    What is baffling me is this: the touch calibration, which was fine before, is now very strange. If I put my finger at the top of the screen, the cursor is about half a inch below my finger. If I put my finger an inch and a half above the bottom of the screen, the tip of the cursor is barely visible off the bottom edge. If I move my finger up and down on the screen, the cursor gets farther from my finger as I move down the screen, and closer as I move up. I've tried to change the settings, but changing the numbers appears to do nothing (same error message).

    Code:
    a10cwarhog@Noir:~$ xsetwacom set 13 bottomy "4322"
    Error (2): WacomConfigOpenDevice: No such device
    Set: Failed to open device '13'
    Stylus calibration, if anything, is a bit tighter than it was before. I did reboot (without the script running at startup) but the touch behavior didn't go back to the way it was before, so I really have no idea what is going on here.

    This is the same as other output in the thread, but I know someone will ask:
    Code:
    a10cwarhog@Noir:~$ xinput --list

    Hi Vermilion Sparrow,

    Not clear what's going on. It seems xsetwacom isn't installed correctly. You can go to Synaptic Package Manager and tell it to reinstall xserver-xorg-input-wacom and reboot. See if that clears it up.

    If not you'll have to update linuxwacom and xf86-input-wacom. See I. and II. in the Bamboo P&T HOW TO or Sections 1 and 2 in the linuxwacom HOW TO. The bonus is you'll lose the bug in default 0.8.4-4 wacom.ko that calls the stylus and touch the same name.

    Linuxwacom is probably not running touch anymore, it's probably the evdev driver or the Synaptic driver. You could look at Xorg.0.log in /var/log to check.

    Thanks, I removed linuxwacom and installed the latest version and it seems to be behaving properly now. Not sure what was going on there.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04: Calibrate touch in HP tx2000

    Hello everyone...

    Anybody could make the button of the stylus works as mouse right-button? I couldn't. Other estrange thing: the command ClickForce is not working for me, I replaced by the word Threshold as I read in a different page, it works with no errors but I don't know what this command is doing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi heinercg,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    All you should need to do is determine the stylus "device name" with:
    Code:
    xinput list
    in a terminal and then use it in a xsetwacom command:
    Code:
    xsetwacom set "device name" Button2 "3"
    where 3 is short for button 3, i.e. a right mouse click. 2 is a middle click.

    They changed the name a few weeks ago to Threshold. More name changes are due shortly, so be prepared to use:
    Code:
    xsetwacom list param
    or the get command to find out what they are. By the way param may be changing to parameter.

    Anyway Threshold is how much pressure you have to exert on the stylus tip before a button 1 event (left click, stylus tip by default) is sent. It's to stop spurious left clicks at very light pressure i.e. unintended.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04: Calibrate touch in HP tx2000

    Thanks Favaux for your help.

    Now I have some problems with calibration after rotating. For rotating I'm using Magick-rotation 1.3 I don't know if you are familiar with that program. But could you help me how to calibrate my stylus, eraser and touch after a rotation.

    Thank you.

    Hi heinercg,

    I'm somewhat familiar with Magick. It shouldn't mess up your calibration. Could you tell me what's happening to the calibration of stylus, eraser, and touch after a rotation?

    The calibration mess up completely, ej: I point the stylus at the centre of the screen but the mouse is at the top of the screen. For your information the only way that I could calibrate my stylus, eraser and touch was making a script with the coordinates*, make it executable and running from start. I wonder if you have the new rotation coordinates in order to run them before the computer rotates.

    Thank you for your support

    *By the way, the coordinates script is from you: Favux_TX2000-wacom.conf-.xsetwacom.sh
