that should be that file you asked for
like I said right now I'm using the applet method for magic rotate but if it's easier to troubleshoot/fix I can go back to the script it's not big deal.
thank you again for all the help.
Your Xorg.0.log shows evdev, not linuxwacom has your tablet.
If linuxwacom had your tablet you could modify the script using:
styus = "N-Trig Pen"
touch = "N-Trig Touchscreen"
probably with the quotes. And since you do not have an eraser you can remove those two lines.
Figuring out how to parse the new device names in the applet is another matter. Until I load Lucid I'm not even going to try. Notice it says it only works up to and with Karmic. Sorry.
I am currently reinstalling a fresh version of Lucid on my laptop so that I can see what is happening. Once I get that updated, I will let you know what we need to do to get the stylus and/or touch over to Wacom.
Favux, just to let you know, I am looking at the code a little bit. I think I have an idea about how to get the information that we need. xsetwacom --list provides the names that we need and we can collect the information from there. The question that I have is if we want to split out the stylus and touchscreen because it looks like there are going to be people who will be using evdev and Wacom drivers.
Exactly. And has the naming convention stabilized?The question that I have is if we want to split out the stylus and touchscreen because it looks like there are going to be people who will be using evdev and Wacom drivers.
As usual, I'm looking for all the help I can get! I have been thinking about it, and it may not be as straightforward as I originally thought. Depends on the "design" decisions we go with.I think I have an idea about how to get the information that we need.
Since I didn't originally setup to install multiple releases I have to go through some tedious back up and disk partitioning stuff, if I can persuaded Vista to go along and part with some of the extensive disk space it's occupying, to install Lucid. And of course am very concerned about losing data. But this is boring to others.
btw while I have been watch you two make great progress for some time now I was unable to follow your guide successfully so this is the walk through I followed to get touch working in lucid and is probably why evdev has control of tablet input
tar -xvjf installer.tar.bz2
perhaps I should wait till full release and I reinstall linux completely and just try to walk through your steps again ... but I think I always fail at the patching and compiling sections.
Actually, Lucid is currently defaulting to evdev for the pen. I am currently in it right now and I am going to see if I can cat an xorg.conf.d file for the wacom devices.
At this time, I have only been able to get it to work through xorg.conf. If you don't have /etc/X11/xorg.conf, create the file with:
That should get the stylus back to normal and using wacom. If you want the touch there too:Code:Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "X.org Configured" InputDevice "stylus" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Driver "wacom" Identifier "stylus" Option "Type" "stylus" Option "Device" "/dev/input/n-trig" Option "Button2" "3" EndSection
If you don't have the udev rules created to create the /dev/input/n-trig-touch and n-trig, substitute it with /dev/input/event7 for your pen and /dev/input/event8 for your touch.Code:Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "X.org Configured" InputDevice "stylus" InputDevice "touch" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Driver "wacom" Identifier "stylus" Option "Type" "stylus" Option "Device" "/dev/input/n-trig" Option "Button2" "3" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Driver "wacom" Identifier "touch" Option "Type" "touch" Option "Device" "/dev/input/n-trig-touch" EndSection
By the way, if you use both the touch and pen with wacom, you should be able to use the applet again. I have not tested that out yet though.
Right, with the Identifier specifying stylus or touch. I was wondering.if you use both the touch and pen with wacom, you should be able to use the applet again.
By the way Ping just submitted a big patch for 2 finger gestures and Chris was impressed. They're waiting on Peter's review. This may address some of Rafi's issues with linuxwacom gestures. I don't know how much it brings it in line with the evdev version of multi-touch.

I can't wait for the day when I can get multi touch up and working easily on this machine ^_^
I'll edit my xorg.conf as soon as I go to lunch and report back if it works
