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.
Can you provide the step-by-step tutorial video for How to install it, how to configure it, until it can used on the smartphones?
I have already tried but always get IP 0.0.0.0. Really confused…
I use Ubuntu 13.10 + Nexus 5
hello, I made a video of setting up GfxTable. Hope this helps.
