I guess it’s just a security thing that they have to send out to every app
They didn’t just send out something, but they have removed GfxTablet from Play Store.
because there will be some people out there that will try and steal users money through phishing links. Security is a very important thing.
I guess it’s because they like to bind users and developers to Google Play, so that people will always have to use proprietary Google services (like in-app payment) when they want to use (otherwise open-source) Android. So,
apps can’t be sold in other app stores anymore (because the payments are bound to Google), and
Google gets 30 % of all payments (even donations), and
the open-source Android becomes a more-or-less worthless vehicle to drive users to proprietary Google services.
Perfectly OK from an economic point of view, but I don’t have to like that.
When you move your “mouse” on your tablet from the far left to the far right, it should go from the left monitor to the right.
If that is the case then the problem is, that what you are requesting is not possible, because your Tablet is not capable to just higher the dpi of the touchscreen!
I’ve found that GfxTablet also works great for using a Bluetooth mouse on a computer without Bluetooth. Mouse movement is passed through as I would expect. Scrolling doesn’t work and middle click/right click all register as left click. Would it be possible to have GfxTablet also pass those actions to the computer?
Just finished a little indicator applet for networktablet. It gives you a cute little menu where you can start and stop networktablet, and also gives you quick access to map it to a screen (this is remembered automatically, yay!) It’s probably still buggy but testing is appreciated! 🙂
I’m trying to get Krita working with GfxTablet. Presently it doesn’t on my system, because the input driver gets recognized as a touchscreen instead of a tablet. I’m interested to know if this is distro level weirdness - I am preparing a patch to the driver to fix it, but I want to know if it’s going to mess with non-Debian distros.
So, can any users quickly check most /var/log/Xorg.0.log after they start networktablet, and tell me if the thing is being detected as a touchscreen or a tablet?
