    Re: Genius Tablet pen doesn't move unless pressed down

    Well how 'bout that! Amazingly I found the bookmark without much trouble. Even more amazing it appears to be for your tablet, Waltop Slim Tablet 12.1/Genius G-Pen F610! Info. on tablet: sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/digimend/index.php?title=Waltop_Slim_Tablet_12.1" And it appears to be the same issue! See: http://forum.deviantart.com/technolo...dware/1538233/

    Good find with the Windows link. Tends to make it look more like a tablet/pen problem, not the software.

    Yes, let's do that. How should I proceed?
    This should be easy. Just go to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d and open the 50-wacom.conf:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf
    The 50-wacom.conf file should look something like:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom class"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM|Hanwang|PTK-540WL"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom serial class"
    	MatchProduct "Serial Wacom Tablet"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "Wacom serial class identifiers"
            MatchProduct "WACf|FUJ02e5|FUJ02e7|FUJ02e9"
            Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    # Waltop tablets
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Waltop class"
    	MatchProduct "WALTOP"
    	MatchIsTablet "on"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    # N-Trig Duosense Electromagnetic Digitizer
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom N-Trig class"
    	MatchProduct "HID 1b96:0001|N-Trig Pen"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    	Option "Button2" "3"
    EndSection
    Just comment out the Waltop snippet and restart:
    Code:
    # Waltop tablets
    #Section "InputClass"
    #	Identifier "Waltop class"
    #	MatchProduct "WALTOP"
    #	MatchIsTablet "on"
    #	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    #	Driver "wacom"
    #EndSection
    That should let the tablet fall through to the evdev driver after a restart.

    Re: Genius Tablet pen doesn't move unless pressed down

    Favux,

    many thanks again. Today I've tried the tablet on Windows and found out that it doesn't work there either. So, I guess it's a hardware thing after all, and the fix you found will probably do the trick. Now I only need to find a precision screwdriver I will be very happy if this works out, but also very angry with Genius.

    Regarding the switch from Wacom X driver to xf86-input-evdev driver: still gnome pannel says "No tablet detected".

    Best,
    Jan

    Ok, this is how the story ended: I've got the precision screwdriver, I did as suggested in the previous post, and... WOW... the proximity detection works now. So the problem was in the pen after all. Anyhow, I think it's amazing that Genius makes no mention of this issue whatsoever...

    Nice job Jan.

    I agree. Genius (KYE) should include that in the instruction manuals.

    I'll see if I can come up with a way to add mechanical proximity adjustment to the DIGImend wiki.
