Wacom & Gimp help

2006-01-09 04:47:38.494597+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Aaarg! If you use a Wacom tablet under Linux[Wiki] with GIMP, maybe this'll ring a bell.

I have my Graphire configured and the XOrg server is reading it mostly fine, except that sometimes, and I can't figure out what the pattern is, it gets confused about the absolute position information.

I think this is related to when I turn on the extended input information in GIMP, I get the tool at a different location than the cursor. I've tried this in "screen" and "window" mode, "window" gives me something that's obviously scaling oddly, "screen" gives me kind of what I want, except for the fact that the tool is at a different location. And it seems like I can move this location by moving quickly off the edge of the window, then back on.

This is bothering me, because now that I've had a taste of touch sensitive drawing, I want more.

All of the usual stuff, Option "Mode" "absolute" in my xorg.conf, verified that this is loading in "absolute" mode in the log files, if anyone has help I'd be most grateful.

Found it in this thread. Apparently specifying:

Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Option "Dev Phys" "isa0060/serio1/input0"

in my Section "InputDevice" for my main mouse (and the "Dev Phys" was gotten by cat /proc/bus/input/devices, and specifying "CorePointer" down on the InputDevice line for that object, and "AlwaysCore" for the Wacom devices, works.
