Hi I am on ubuntu 19.04 I have the application working via sudo ./networktablet command flawlessly, yet I can make desktop icons for ubuntu, but never had to try with a sudo command or any other command to open an application I am new to linux so confused, after scouring forever looking and trying 10’s of ways I cannot get it to open well it does but as a file to edit in a text editor rather than as a sudo terminal command, I really want gfxtablet incorporated in my custom os so I can open it from an icon but need your help please anyone if you can assist in making the app into a desktop icon for ubuntu would be great.
Ah. I didn’t address the moving window part. All I can think is sent data includes a scankey code to Grab Window. I use XFCE and it has ALT + Right-Mouse-Drag to move a window. I’m not sure how that would be fixed.
Additionally, while you are frustrated, try to refrain from cursing or swearing when asking for help.
I had the same symptoms. Try the changes to the code I made in pull request 95. It uses a newer Linux API to register the device, and libinput seems happy with it now, so it works in gimp and inkscape.
Hello @d3vid, you might like to try the changes I made in pull request 95, which use the newer Linux kernel ioctls for configuring uinput devices. I made the changes in response to the “missing tablet capabilities: resolution” error, just as you saw in your list-devices output. After the changes, my setup recognises the tablet and I see it in gimp and inkscape.
The firewall solution would certainly work on a trusted LAN, thanks for the suggestion. As a proof of concept GfxTablet definitely succeeds in demonstrating that we have are carrying functional drawing tablets around with us every day. Thanks!
@orbitallogic well, it WAS working… now its not showing up again… it didn’t survive reboot… so i’m back at the drawingboard… will post again once i’ve gotten the driver to load on startup and survive reboot.
@loentar Adding “pen” worked great for me; thanks for the tip! As there is a makefile, recreating the program also worked flawlessly.
Only strange side-effect (but might not be releted to this) is when I now activate the tablet, for the mouse the foreground and background colors seems swapped. As the pen works as intended, I can live with that
