Ubuntu :: 11.04 Wacom Tablet CTH-461 Gestures And Mouse Sensitivity With The Finger Touch Is Too Sensitive
Mar 7, 2011
i have a minor problem with the wacom tablet CTH-461. the gestures and mouse sensitivity with the finger touch is too sensitive... i mean that the mouse is moving really fast and you have to be very careful when you are pinching / zooming with your fingers... and second question. where i have to submit this "bug" bcs the 11.04 is still alpha and i want the tablet to be in final release as much as possible supported.
I m on ubuntu 10.04 and have a Trust tb 4200 tablet.. and having problems with my trust tablet runing on ubuntu.. i pluged in the tablet and to my amaze it started working right away until i pressed the pen on the tablet.. i cant seem to move the mouse curser anymore unless i touch the pen on the tablet. (wich acts as a click) so i thought that i may be missing the drivers.. i checked thes forum and there was a post to install the aptek drivers which i did (but still worked the same) and i found out thet there was no 10-aiptek.fdi (in "/etc/hal/fdi/policy/") so i created one and copied one from a post.. in [url]...3&postcount=50 but still cant move the courser without touching.. its like if it did no diference at all.. i also changed the values in the 10-aiptek.fdi with no changes.. the size of the tablet is just the size of the screen so i am using the full tablet.. and no buttons work...
I think the drivers are not workin.. in the synaptic it shows as intalled...
I have a wacom graphire3 tablet and two monitors. The tablet is workin properly with out of the box drivers.
As well as the dual monitors configured as twinview through Nvidia X server. But the tablet is mapped for the two screens, then I searched the forums for a proper configuration and it it tells me to edit the xorg.conf file for twinview horizontal but, it don't make any difference. I've "sudo gedit" edited the xorg.conf and nothing happens. Nothing, the tablet is working properly, the system is stable and it's still mapped for two screens.
What can I do? The xorg.conf also isn't listing all my hardware, I can't see the confs for my mouse. I'm on karmic koala.
as a kind of luxory item I am thinking of adding a bamboo to my PC. Before putting action behind this, I wonder how much of a hazzle this brings about. Has anybody of you experience with 11.4 in this field? If a hazzle: Can anybody be bothered to compile the driver and provide it as a 1-click on the build service - or even in the official repositories? Would there be full functionality actually after all? BTW, I am aware of the wacom SF-site.
I have recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet and have got it working with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) by following this post: [URL].
I am now trying to trap the actual data coming from the bamboo as I write with the pen and found some threads suggesting that if I do an xxd one of /dev/ttyS[0-4] I should be able to see output. However when I do a "sudo xxd /dev/ttyS0" the xxd command finishes straight away.
If I run the command "xxd /dev/input/mouse1" I can the data coming from the mouse movement so I am expecting to be able to see the same sort of thing coming from the wacom bamboo pen. Both the bamboo and the mouse are USB connected.
Does anyone know if the stream of data coming form the wacom bamboo should go to /dev/ttyS[0-4] or should I be looking elsewhere?
I was messing with xorg.conf trying to get my wacom tablet to work. I restarted and it brings be everytime to a terminal. I can log in but that is about it. When I type startx it says xorg.conf is messed up bad. I already tried:
I have recently bought a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet, and just as recently installed Fedora 12 KDE for its supposed "excellent tablet support".
Well, I have yet to see any of that. Unless the fact that I'm using KDE affects this (and I'm staying KDE, no more GNOME for me!), I see no reason why my tablet should not work. It was working fine in Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit (though the last time I started up in Windows it said it didn't recognize the device).
None of the applications that I've heard implemented in Fedora to support tablets were installed, but then again they're all probably GNOME apps, am I right? Still, my tablet should at least act as a mouse? I checked KPackageManager, and it said that the latest linuxwacom driver was installed. So why isn't anything working?
It seems as if everything - all this talk about tablet support in F12 - is just for GNOME. About the only thing working with my tablet as I type this is the status light, which indicates it being recognized as a USB device, and it flashes like it should when I tap the surface with the pen, but it seems as if there's nothing to receive the input. I even installed the latest GIMP, and when I checked Input Devices, nothing relating to the tablet was even there! At least on Windows it showed the Pen and the non-existent eraser, though neither worked properly, but it seems as if Fedora 12 doesn't even know it's there!
I shouldn't have to change anything in xorg.conf, because I thought that linuxwacom did it for you?
I decided to write here because I was wondering if there are any Wacom Bamboo (MTE-450) tablet users who experience any resume problems with their tablets on 11.3. I experience this issue on 11.2 - tablet was not working after resume from suspending to RAM - I had to replug it in order to make it work. Now when I upgraded to 11.3, the issue was still there.
Finally, I was able to "workaround" the issue by doing the following (found on some Ubuntu groups):
Code: echo 'SUSPEND_MODULES="wacom"' | sudo tee /etc/pm/config.d/50wacom
I am wondering if that happens to anyone else and if it still the case for a freshly installed 11.3.
I'm running a Fujitsu Lifebook T5010 with Linux Fedora Release 12 and the mouse is way too sensitive, jumps all over the screen when I touch it, especially if 2 fingers touch at the same time. I've tried all the system settings and nothing helps. It works fine with Windows XP Professional.
There has been a lot of effort invested in getting external USB connected anything to work well during the connect then disconnect processing. It seems that there are troubles with OEM serial digitizers like those built-in for a tablet-PC. The built-in OEM devices do not have the same sort of connection events to trigger device creation and configuration.
Does anyone know how to make all of the find-hardware then create configuration processing visible? While I find several postings that describe "... edit xorg.conf ..." but then those edits don't want to work with the recent evolution in Xorg and X11-server configuration that deprecates (abandons?) xorg.conf. Does anyone understand what is going on with Xorg and X11-config to help me get my tablet working? Has anyone used an external USB tablet, then adapted those configuration details to get an OEM tablet working? I know that every tablet is different, but if the external device connect-creates-config process works best, it seems there might be value here.
I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.
From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?
I've just got the multi-touch driver work with ubuntu 10.10 64bit on my alumni macbook. Now I can do scroll and right click with two fingers. However, one thing I really miss is the ability to move the cursor while holding the 'big button', I want to drag windows/icons with one finger holding down the physical button, and another finger dragging around.
I upgraded to Fedora 12 right after release, everything was working fine until update on previous weekend. Looks like it updated Wacom drivers and kernel. Now what I have. I hotplug my tablet in USB, and everything seems fine, I can position a cursor and press buttons, but after I press some button it hangs (LEDs on tablet are responding) I must remove Stylus from proximity in order to make it respond again (while stylus is away LED on tablet switches off for a fraction of second).
If I move mouse during tablet hanging, applications barely respond and if they are it is like mouse button is pressed (selecting text). I tried wacdump, and it's reporting everything's fine (X,Y, Tilt, Pressure everything shows up). I couldn't find evidence that wacom driver is controlling it, but I assume if wacdump is reporting then it is. I have: Kernel 22.214.171.124-145.fc12.x86_64 linuxwacom.x86_64 0.8.2.2-15.fc12
I didn't touch xorg.conf in sense of tablet, but it worked for me in F11 and until now. I'm trying to make least manual configurations possible. Through exploring /proc/bus/usb/devices and kernel messages I confirmed that wacom drives is handling the tablet. And I noticed that in X's log

I've encountered quite similar error in openSUSE when was configuring tablet manually in xorg.conf. As I can see problem is with "pad" device, which I disabled in openSUSE in order to make X running. So why is it not working?
I recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen Only (CTL-460). It's a great device and in Fedora 15 (x86_64) it worked out-of-the-box like a charm!
I don't miss the rubber or the extra keys on the tablet. But I'm having quite some trouble, using the pen as a mouse replacement in all day use. The following is with respect to usage outside GIMP and Inkscape (i.e. Firefox, Nautilus etc). What I would really like to have, is:
+ scrolling by pressing the "first button" and simply _moving_ the pen. Just like with my Thinkpad-Trackpoint: Here I press the middle key and can then scroll just by controlling the Trackpoint. Would already be cool, if I could scroll by pressing the "first button" and touching the tablet. A short tap while pressing the "first button" should still be a "middle click"!
Found a solution for "jamming at the edge of the screen". Just resized the "area" a bit (smaller) with xsetwacom...
I have a acer aspire 8735G-6502 this bad boy [URL]: Acer Aspire 8735G-6502 18.4-Inch Widescreen Laptop: Computer & Accessories I am trying to figure out how to configure the touch sensitive volume level control. It works somewhat, but only increasing volume. Xev does a strange job detecting the key codes, and assigning keyboard short cuts does the same thing. In fact when moving ones finger in a downward, volume decreasing motion it picks up only strange upward finger motion.
I am running Kubuntu 10.10 x64, using a Wacom Bamboo (CTH-460), I installed it by compiling the driver and moving the file as in every tutorial I could find in the Internet. The pen works perfectly, except by the fact I use TwinView and the tablet uses all the width, too sensitive. but this is something I plan to fix later... (pressure is OK)
the problem is the touch.. It almost works, right click, zoom and scroll support is ok, I believe there is no support to rotation but I can live without it... The problem is the cursor movement, seems to be a sensitivity issue. If I move very slow there is no problem, but if i move a little faster the cursor stops as if I had removed the finger from the sensor. When I try to scroll or zoom I have a similar problem, it moves an inch before it start to scroll as if it wasn't sensing the second finger, but right click is perfect so I don't think this is the problem.
Would this be a bug? Is there a way to calibrate the touch sensor? I remember editing the xorg.conf to make the touch fit the screen size in a HP Tx2510us, and to make two finger scroll on to touch pad but it was in 8.10 I believe, I cant find something like it for this problem. wacomcpl cant see the device, xsetwacom list returns nothing... xinput list returns this:
I did not keep a record of everything I have tried. I used the package manager to apply anything with wacom in its name. I downloaded xf86-input-wacom-0.10.9 but perhaps I put it in the wrong directory.
I took screen shots of some of the things I did (but have no idea how to insert them). I tried ~ git clone git://linuxwacom.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom and -after trying for some time to figure out if my system is 32 or 64 bit- typed cd xf86-input-wacom and from there typed~ ./autogen.sh --prefix=usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 the text that followed was long-- wish I could use a screenshot! The line autoreconfig: running: aclocal was followed by
The last 3 lines were:
Since then I downloaded the X.OrgX11 driver for wacom tablets and attempted to copy the wacom.fdi file into /etc/hal/fdi/policy but do not have permission. I am so new to Linux that I am reluctant to try to change permissions.
Using a new Ubuntu 9.10 install with Wubi. I go into System > Preferences > Mouse and adjust the sensitivity bars and acceleration with no effect. Anyone got an idea for how to adjust this? It's too slow.
Having the hardest time turning the mouse sensitivity down in xfce. Various xset settings make no real difference. I move the mouse under an inch and it covers the entire screen easily. razertool-gtk won't recognize my mouse (also, I couldn't find any documentation at all for it, but maybe I'm just dumb), the xfce settings don't lower it enough, and the last thing I was going to try was to edit my xorg.conf. I though there was supposed to be a mouse section there, and this is all I have in my xorg.conf file:
The mouse sensitivity in Ubuntu is a little too high, and no matter how I set the mouse settings its either too sensitive or too slow...or too fast. I have tried many times to find the correct mouse settings adjusting both acceleration and sensitivity but nothing seems to be good. I've tried both my Microsoft mouse and Logitech MX Performance mouse and the same problem is apparent on both. Is there a bug with Ubuntu's mouse settings or something (I'm sure I heard about it some time ago - that the sensitivity settings aren't working exactly as they should be?), and is there any way around it? (or at least, be able to set good settings some how).
