Thread: Installing the tablet

  1. #1

    Default Installing the tablet

    Hello, its me again after a long break. I still have problems with Linux and installing the tablet. I keep using the guide on this website:
    Wacom USB tablet howto - openSUSE

    I figured out that if I dont remove add these lines, it works, causes no problem since I don't use GIMP

    You will also need to add these lines to the server layout for the GIMP to use this tablet:
    InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice "pad"
    InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
    However, minor problems have appeared!
    -the tablet is able to reach all spots on the screen... almost, sometimes it doesnt, it's so random and unexplained why sometimes it cannot reach some border spots
    -whenever I raise the tablet stylus from the reach of sense, the cursor goes to the top left corner, it's so annoying!

    I can't make any bit of sense of the rest of the guide, I don't know what else to do. Any help?

    I do not get the impression that there is anyone on the OpenSuse forums who enthusiastically uses the Wacom tablets;

    delighted however if they appear out of the ether to answer your questions;

    there is a special interest linux wacom tablet forum;

    why don't you try there?

    Nabble - Linux Wacom Tablet Project forum

    if you get useful answers, please post your learning back here on the forum; it would surely be great to have someone using wacom regularly

    I discovered this site again

    Userkukawka - openSUSE

    User Dkukawka was working for Novell and had done a thesis on wacom tablets and linux he said; sounds like he can be contacted by email; he quotes his address in the above site; that might be helpful to you
