Thank you for your interest. At the moment, there are no plans for Windows because we use only open-source software. However, as the protocol is open, it shouldn’t be too hard to make a Windows driver for everyone who is experienced on that platform.
Hey Bernhard thanks for your quick reply! I have a firewall program but it
is not on.
Its funny, I just tried everything that I tried before I went to bed but
now it just suddenly started working! I had the firewall off but when I
turned it on but with opening port 40118 it just started working
The good news is everything was as it should be. I was thinking that maybe
the drivers were not installed correctly.
Going to make a small but sincere donation now because this is a cool
app/feature, and especially since it supports Linux!
Currently, there is only the horizontal orientation. It would be very helpful to me, and other HTC EVO View owners on ICS, because the pen does not work properly with horizontal orientation, only vertically. However, it works the pen works perfectly on stock Honeycomb 3.x.
Is it possible to lower the API, or at least add vertical orientation support?

Thank you for the suggestion. However, this kind of feature in non-trivial since you’d have to stream-back the drawn data (in the desktop application) to the tablet. This whould cause very much network overhead and also it would be laggy drawing too. You’re not alone with your wish. We’ve often heard this request already, but I’m sorry to say that it will not come to gfxtablet for a while…
Many thanks for your very prompt response. However, I didn’t mean that GfxTablet should stream-back the drawn data to the tablet - what would be drawn on the tablet would just help in locating already drawn letters (resp. lines, curves) on screen ; having exactly the same drawing/image/figure on the computer and on the tablet is not needed ; respecting colors (say) would be nice, but not necessary. The simplest way would be to have an option that stylus displacement (when appled on tablet) would draw a segment between consecutive position events on the tablet, that’s it, so the only cost in time would be sending a call to the SurfaceFlinger widget on Android, that’s it - (possibly additionally enlarging the protocol to include “new color” events, optionally, but this is not a real priority for me …)
I enclose here a very simple app I am developping on my linux box to make white board presentations (righ now, either with a wacom tablet “blindly”, or with a Boogie Board - much more satisfactory, as the Boogie board actually draws what you are writing ; this small enhancement in GfxTablet would allow doing the same with the Galaxy Note).
I’m happy that you like the app. GfxTablet pressure sensitivity is handled by the MotionEvent API automatically. I think if there’s no hardware support for pressure, the API tries to emulate it – so the pressure info should be available to all apps, no only GfxTablet.
I went to my router - Zyxel (NBG-417N) in NAT/Application and set the port 40118 (as well as in Advanced). Iam not sure if I do it well. I dont know about any firewall on my Ubuntu, I did never install it.
