    Toshiba Tablet pen drivers corrupt

    Hey all,

    I recently 'upgraded' to Ubuntu from Windows and so far (one week) Im loving it.

    However...

    About a few hours back, my tablet input pen started acting strange. Whenever I use the pen to navigate the OS, its as if the enter key is permanently pressed. The cursor tries to grab and hold on to whatever I hover my pen over.

    I suspect the reason for this is that I connected a Logitech mouse with my laptop (for the first time) and immediately after that the pen started acting this way. The pen only has one button (for right mouse key) and I cannot think of anything else I have done that would have brought this problem up.

    My laptop is a Toshiba Portege M400 with Core2Duo, 1GB Ram and was working perfectly fine until a few hours back.

    Should I reinstall the drivers for the tablet pen input? If yes, how do I go about doing this?

    Cheers,

    Hi Kayote,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    What release of Ubuntu are you using?

    Let's try and diagnose the problem. Enter in a terminal xinput list and post the output.

    Thank you for the warm welcome Favux.

    The problem turned out to be a hardware one as the pen wasnt working correctly in windows either. A soft whack solved the problem.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome and raising my confidence in Ubuntu... to test the pen was the first time in a week I had logged into Windows! Cheers,
