GfxTablet and libinput

  • Using libinput and gfxtablet at the same time don't work. Libinput tries to use networktablet and fails doing so. The cursor doesn't move and clicking does nothing.
    /var/log/Xorg.1.log complains about that it can't handle the tablet device because of an internal bug.

    To solve this you need to add a configuration file, per example 30-gfxtablet.conf, to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with the following:

    Section "InputClass"
           Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
           MatchIsTablet "on"
           MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
           Driver "evdev"

  • Don't forget to restart XOrg after adding the configuration file.

  • Is there no way to do this without evdev installed? I've been trying to keep everything to libinput.

  • @parkerlreed I'm sorry but you're wrong here. I'm not a developer. Please make a new topic (search before) with your feature request.
