I’ve just finished my first foray into Debian packaging, and hence a PPA is now available at http://launchpad.net/akdor1154/gfxtablet. You can add it to your Ubuntu system with
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:akdor1154/gfxtablet
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install networktablet
It’s identical to what is in rfc2822’s master repository. Currently it needs to be run as root (or else grant your user access to /dev/uinput) but I intend on fixing this.
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.
@HoDANG said in Google has removed GfxTablet from Google Play:
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.
