That sounds right. I probably should change that after I think it through a bit. Ping felt that it was time for a multi-touch page given all the work they had done in the kernel and Peter adding multitouch to X. Not to mention all the nice new multi-finger touch hardware Wacom had come out with. So I got the job, what with being the gopher and all. You're seeing my limitations. The hope was/is that others with more expertise would contribute. You have to ask Peter to get added to the wiki due to a SourceForge limitation on hosted app.s he has to add wiki contributors manually.
I DO have some suggestions, mainly about technical writing to make it clearer (not so much about technical facts. Except: that page says "by turning the Gesture parameter off the touch contacts are now passed to the X Server". Shouldn't that say "through the XServer, unmodified" or "to the X client." ? In other words, isn't the "wacom" driver part of the X server, and apps are X clients?)
Are you talking about the left click drag? That's me again trying to describe some code contributed by a non-linuxwacom dev. So my clumsy wording may be giving you the wrong impression.
Under "TOUCH GESTURES>Single Finger(1FG)" it seems to say that to get a touch event from a single finger in an app, a user needs to actually touch the screen twice (tap the screen with a finger and quickly put a finger back down.)
That's gone through multiple changes in the kernel and I haven't been able to keep track. You should seek help from Chris, Jason, or Ping on the linuxwacom-discuss mailinig list: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/...xwacom-discuss
In other words, the wacom driver is also translating (recognizing) single touches into button events (which are not raw touch events to the application.) Unlike the two-finger gestures, I'm not sure this can be disabled in the wacom driver: the man page says: Option "Gesture" "bool" Enable or disable multi-finger gesture support on the device. Emphasis on "multi-finger" as opposed to single finger.
