Can't see "Network Tablet" in xinput list

  • Firstly, thank you for sharing such a cool app. Secondly, can you help me get it to work?

    I have a server install of linux (Linux UbuntuServer 3.5.0-47-generic #71~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Feb 19 22:02:52 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux) that i added xorg and fluxbox to. I am able to run opengl apps (blender, gimp, krita, etc) in turbovnc so I think that X is fairly well configured and functioning.

    I have downloaded the linux part the equation and also compiled it but can't seem to get the Network Tablet to show up in xinput or anywhere else. I have to run ./networktablet as root. The tablet app connects and I can see the x,y,pressure list in the terminal I started the app from.

    .x: 16015, y: 16728, pressure: 3212
    .x: 14006, y: 19248, pressure: 3340
    .x: 14403, y: 19633, pressure: 3405
    .x: 14984, y: 19935, pressure: 3405
    .x: 15791, y: 20237, pressure: 3405
    .x: 16669, y: 20370, pressure: 3405
    .x: 17659, y: 20521, pressure: 3405

    xorg-evdev was already installed.

    When I look at the end of Xorg.0.log this is what I see:

    [  2714.421] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.
    [  2714.421] (II) This device may have been added with another device file.

    This is how the log file looks even with the x.y.pressure whizzing down the other xterm window. I have tried using the /dev/input/mouse0 and the /dev/input/event8 in gimp's "Linux Input" controller but it doesn't work.

    Any insight you could give would be greatly appreciated.


  • Never mind, I was up too late. The input device needs to be on the local machine while using vnc....
