Ubuntu :: Pen Tablet - Graphical Tablet Is No Longer Recognized

Apr 30, 2011

Upgraded to 11.04 and my graphical tablet is recognized no longer Any idea how can I set it up? Wizardpen is not working, the ppa on my repository says something about "Natty" instead of "Maverick" (As than before)

If I type lsusb on my terminal then this line appears:


Which is completely false because the Genius MousePen 5x4 Tablet is this one

And I have the Genius Easypen i405, which is this one

Ubuntu :: Trust Tablet Tb4200 - Cant Seem To Move Mouse Curser Anymore Unless Touch The Pen On The Tablet

Sep 15, 2010

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...

Hardware :: Digital Tablet - Show The Pen Strokes Both On The Tablet's Display And On The Computer's Monitor At The Same Time

Mar 13, 2010

I have noticed they sell digital writing tablets that have the ability to show the pen strokes both on the tablet's display and on the computer's monitor at the same time, and I think they are called LCD digital tablets and they serve as both a second computer monitor AND a writing tablet combined in one, such as the Wacom Cintiq, and must be connected both by USB as well as with a VGA/DVI port, and you have the ability to open up a drawing application directly from the tablet such as Paint where you can draw or write on the tablet's display. And you can see what you are writing on the tablet's display. Then you save the results to a JPEG file, for example.

But I do not want a digtal tablet quite as elaborate as that. I am looking for something similar to the credit card terminals used in stores where you can sign your name directly on the display after swiping your credit card, and you can see what you are writing as you write. Then your signature shows up on a paper receipt later. Do they make digital tablets like that for the home user, and if they do, would they have to hook up to the VGA/DVI port on your video card? What are they called and where can I get one?

I've searched several online stores but they do not say if you can see what you are writing on the tablet's display. I already have a Wacom tablet in Linux but you can not see what you are writing on the tablet. I have to keep looking up at my computer's monitor to see what I am writing and proficiency is reduced as a result. And again, I do not want a tablet as elaborate as I described in my first paragraph. I want something simplier, such as the type used at a credit card terminal.

Hardware :: Get Omnipen OP 906 Pen Tablet (not Tablet Computer) To Work

Apr 22, 2011

I want to get this pen tablet (not tablet computer) to work (for drawing in kolorpaint / krita / gimp etc)

Omnipen OP-906 (ancient mid-90's device). It came with floppy with drivers for Windows 3.11 and old Mac Plugs into ttyS0 (com1. It has "tablet mode" and "mouse mode". It is meant to always start in "tablet mode", but if I give it a small power interruption (take out the AC plug from the wall halfway and quickly plug it back in), it sometimes kicks into "mouse mode". The original driver is supposed to be able to switch the modes

Ubuntu :: X201t Tablet Keys Not Recognized By Xev?

Jul 9, 2010

I got my self an x201 Tablet as of last week. Everything works out fine, like tablet, fingerprint, webcam and stuff - only the tablet keys are not beeing recognized by xev itself. Needless to say I can't bind them to a certain command, which makes working in Tablet-Only mode needlessly cruel.

Fedora Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Tablet Not Recognized ?

Feb 10, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Which Distro Should Be Used On A Tablet PC

Jul 19, 2010

which linux distro should be used on a tablet pc. Some of them may seem unrelated, but they are not. I am looking to buy a very thin, very lightweight tablet pc, just like the ipad. However, I can not get the Ipad itself, because it does not have a USB port, and I must have at least one USB port on the tablet.

1. Which linux distro would you install on a tablet pc, (such as the ipad or archos 9) and why? I would like to be able to run a windows OS, simply because that is what I am accustomed to. But alas, I can not. The perfect tablet for me was canceled for this very reason. The HP "Slate". As was the Microsoft brand "Courier" tablet. They were both going to run some lighter weight version of Windows 7, but even that drained the battery so fast that HP ended up canceling the product. So I have to come up with another good OS, that is very lightweight. I really like the look of Kubuntu. Is there any reason I shouldn't install Kubuntu on my tablet PC?

2. Is there a linux mobile? You know how they have windows, mobile, and apple has their little mobile mac OS? Is there a linux mobile type of GUI OS that Would be beneficial to a tablet? Or is linux so conservative on resources, that I could install a full linux OS on a tablet PC such as the joo joo or ipad?

3. Would the system requirements of Kubuntu/Ubunutu/any other distro be easier on a tablet PC's resources than some of the other available OS's for tablets? Do I even have that part right? I am assuming that I can get a full OS on a tablet if I just use a linux distro. But it has to have all the goods. Such as...everything. All the stuff that you would come to expect from a good, full OS. Not some hacked off, scaled down version made to just barely work, so you lose a lot of functionality. 3-D games excluded, of course. I am talking about good touch screen support, good wireless network support, Bluetooth, 3G, webcam, the works.

4. Do you think that apps from Google's android OS would work on Ubuntu/Kubuntu? It is linux based, supposedly. So therefore maybe some of the apps might work?

5. Why are there so many versions of Kubuntu? For example: Right now, 9.1 is available. But they are working on 10.01. So uh... what are you missing out on by just keeping kubuntu 9 and not upgrading to kubuntu 10? I am used to windows, where any updates are free through "Windows Update". So can you just update from kubuntu 9 to kubuntu 10 without having to wipe your hard drive and install a new OS? How does all that work? How does kubuntu/ubuntu differ when it comes to the update process? I don't want to be behind and miss out on new functionality, but at the same time I don't want to have to wipe my hard drive and install the latest version of the distro every year and a half or two years. Can't you just continually update like with windows? I don't think that you can, cause all the linux distros that I have tried, have all said something like "This distribution will be supported until 9/9/99" or something like that. That is a fake date, but you get the idea. They have an expiration date, and if you want all the latest and greatest goodies, then you need to update to the newest version of the distro. I just don't understand how the update process works with linux, at all.

6. And a last, seemingly unrelated question. Do the Android phones do the whole jailbreak thing? Can they become like little wireless routers like the iphone can? This may also be a reason to use google's android OS on my tablet.

Ubuntu :: Limit Pen Tablet To One Display Out Of Two?

Sep 9, 2010

I'm running a

Release 10.04(lucid)
Kernel Linux 2.6.32-24-generic
GNOME 2.30.2

Using NVIDIA Driver Version 195.36.24 with two monitors 1280x1024 each in TwinView configuration My Pen tablet is ID 5543:0005 UC-Logic Technology Corp. Genius MousePen 8x6 Tablet, Wizardpen driver (not sure how to lookup its version) The tablet is currently working just fine except for this one thing I'm trying to fix: it now covers the entire 2560 pixel width of the desktop and 1024 pixel height. Given that the tablet itself has a 4x3 side ratio, it results in its horizontal resolution being half of the vertical one. Basically, when you use it to draw anything you always have to mentally correct what you do by limiting your horizontal movements to only half of vertical ones which makes drawing a (relatively) straight line an impossible task.

So, this got me thinking that I want to make sure the tablet only works on one of the two displays - the one I'd open Gimp and Inkscape on - the only two programs I ever use the tablet with. However, when I look at the calibration settings of the tablet itself, it only allows me to limit the area of the tablet I want to be sensitive, not the area of display. I cannot find any such settings in NVIDIA X Server Settings either although I think this is where it might have been. So, does anyone know how to leave the same size of the tablet drawing area but make it move the cursor only on one particular monitor in TwinView configuration?

Ubuntu :: VirtuialBox: No Cursor For Tablet

Since my my Wacom tablet and Photoshop don't work well in Ubuntu I was forced to use them both through VirtuialBox and Windows XP. However, even though I have everything installed properly on the Windows guest I can not see my courser when using the tablet. Also, enabling an absolute pointing device in the VirtuialBox settings doesn't help.

Ubuntu :: Get Waltop Tablet To Work?

I just bought an aiptek re-branded waltop graphics tablet, and it sort-of works, but when I click, the click wont end until I move the pen out of range of the graphics tablet, does anybody know how to fix this?

EDIT: Also, when I edit the 50-wacom.conf file as instructed in a tutorial (I just uncommented the part about waltop) it just makes the cursor jump to the top left corner when i try to use the pen.

Ubuntu :: Installing Onto A Internet Tablet?

May 3, 2011

i have purchased an archos 2.8 internet tablet. i have gone through the website and have read that the device is COMPLETeLY open, allowing for people to put android, or even ubuntu onto the device. but do ya think there is any website that google can find with people that have done this? no. the device comes preinstalled with android 2.2 froyo. i enjoy android. but on this little guy i need something a little bit lighter and less bugs. with only having access to a limited french "android market". i certainly got around that and have the full market available, but it was just too much hassle and the device thinks its a phone. what flavor of ubuntu would work will with this wifi touch screen device? heres a link to the device if your wondering what im talking about.

Ubuntu :: How To Configure The Built In Tablet Driver

May 22, 2010

I installed Ubuntu today, and to my great pleasure i found that my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet worked as perfectly as when the windows driver is freshly installed. Unfortunately, i installed no driver, and therefore can find no way to configure my tablet.

What i need configured is the tablet proportion (i have two screens, so the mouse moves too fast in the X direction compared to the Y direction) and what the pen buttons do in different programs. The wrong button is currently right click.

Ubuntu :: Acpid Behaves Strangely On Tablet

Oct 19, 2010

I have followed this guide to setup automatic screen rotation on a fresh installation of Maverick on a Lenovo X200t. This involves creating the file:

$cat /etc/acpi/events/x200t-swivel-down
# /etc/acpi/events/x200t-swivel-down
# called when tablet head swivels down
event=ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 00005009
and the script

$cat /etc/acpi/x200t-swivel-down.sh
/usr/bin/xrandr -o inverted
touch /home/nikos/Desktop/swivel-down
xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet stylus" Rotate half
xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" Rotate half
xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet eraser" Rotate half
(similar for swivel-up)

What I find strange:
- calling the script with ./x200t-swivel-down.sh works (both with and without sudo).
- rotating the screen to tablet mode only executes the touch commands (which I entered for debugging)

Obviously, the acpi event is registered correctly and reacted upon. Just why are the xrandr and xsetwacom commands ignored?
