    OK,
    I replaced the 10-linuxwacom.fdi with the contents of new-generic release candidate 10-(linux)wacom.fdi
    rebooted and it appears that I still have duplicates.
    I also have a 10-wacom.fdi, is this causing the problem?

    thanks for the help

    If you are in Karmic you should not have a 10-wacom.fdi (name in Jaunty). That is likely the problem. Remove it. You should only have a 10-linuxwacom.fdi located at: /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/

    That is weird, OK deleted, but still showing double stylus and eraser. stylus does not rotate with screen, works fine in normal landscape, but not portrait left or right or inverted landscape.
    Not sure what I changed since it worked in the past.

    thanks for the help

    Hi cgul1,

    Good the stylus is working. 'xsetwacom list' should look like this:
    stylus stylus
    eraser eraser
    touch touch

    Is that what you mean, or are you still seeing the duplicates in 'xinput --list'?

    If so, make sure there isn't another wacom .fdi in "/etc/hal/fdi/policy/". Also make sure there are no wacom sections in xorg.conf (at /etc/X11/) or in the "ServerLayout".

    Yeah, still duplicates, I do not have wacom sections, but entries, see attached...

    All right, I think we have it. You have what I call Wacom sections in your xorg.conf as well as lines/entries in "ServerLayout". You should only use the .fdi or the xorg.conf not both. I recommend the .fdi. So comment out (#) or remove the wacom stuff as in the attached xorg.conf.

    I thought maybe so. Yep, that did it, works spot on -left right inverted, no calibration needed.

    Not sure how these files get corrupted,some update or upgrade perhaps, but I know where to look next time

    Thanks so much Favux

    Outstanding! You're welcome.

    Yep, next time it won't be a mystery and you'll be able to solve it quickly.

    Here's Magick Rotation 0.3-3

    Download the attachment onto your desktop. Extract it. Open the Magick Rotation 0.3-3 folder. Instructions are in the Magick-README.txt included in the folder.


    Edit0: This version, 0.3, incorporates Ayuthia's debugging tool which can now be run from the command line and from the gui. It also has more cosmetic improvements. I think it looks pretty good now. Since there is "significant" change to the code, all in all, I think bringing it out as version 0.3 is justified.

    Edit1: Since there have been only 5 downloads of 0.3 I substituted 0.3-1 for it rather than do a new post. There are no functional changes, just cosmetic. Magick 0.3-1 now has borders for the Setup and About windows. With the border for the About window the OK button doesn't look quite so hideous so I finally moved it there, where it "belongs".

    Edit2: While there have been 10 downloads of 0.3-1 I decided to substitute 0.3-2 for it. There have been no functional changes. Magick 0.3-2 has stock gtk buttons and the About button moved back to the setup window. This should be the "final" look.

    Edit3: Magick 0.3-3 now has a GPL, gali98's check for '~/.config/autostart/' and if not mkdir code (e.g. the directory can be absent in clean install), and a minor cosmetic improvement. I decided to put it side by side with 0.3-2 so you can use .3-2 as a fall back if there is a problem.
    I've installed your applet 0.3, which looks and good and rotates the screen nicely with lucid beta 2, however both my touch and pen (which are working well in normal mode) are registering in opposite parts of the screen. So if click bottom left, the mouse is shown top right and so on. Is there a setting I need to change?

    Hi lps1,

    Magick currently will only work if 'xinput --list' and 'xsetwacom list' in a terminal returns stylus, eraser, and touch.

    There have been changes in the linuxwacom naming conventions and now you are 'suppose' to use the device name.

    We'll have to figure out how to parse the device names and add that code to Magick for it to work in Lucid. Unless you can use an xorg.conf to generate stylus, eraser, and touch.
