I use a multi monitor system and i have a little problem with the cursor.
When i up the s-pen/finger on the screen of the device and down the cursor moved to a different area while should allow me to continue the movement.

Can you confirm that it works correctly when you only use one monitor (having the second one disabled)?
uhm for disable i need to change the configuration of my monitors but i think that work
it work on one monitor, but on Ubuntu 13.04 whit 2 monitors there is bug, getWeight() return the weight of two monitors, have to return on the weight of current monitor only
Hello, I have just come across this issue as I’ve only just installed the app. To make the stylus only be read on a single screen, it is very simple.
- Use xrandr to identify which monitor you would like to have the stylus picked up on.
- Use xinput --list to identify the “Network Tablet”
- Finally, use the following
xinput --map-to-output <Network tablet ID> <Output device>
xinput --map-to-output 12 DVI-0
xinput map-to-output "$( xinput list --id-only "Network Tablet" )" DVI-I-1
I would suggest implementing a small Area offset (i have done in my version)… Because not only does it make Multiple Monitor-Setups simpler to handle, it will also make it possible to use the full Tablet Area usable for just e.g. the Drawing Area of the Program…
Trying the solution above, after managing to enable gfxtablet, I get:
xinput map-to-output “$( xinput list --id-only “Network Tablet” )” HDMI-0
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) Major opcode of failed request: 131 (XInputExtension) Minor opcode of failed request: 57 () Serial number of failed request: 30 Current serial number in output stream: 31
Trying to search for an answer, I read something about pointer and keyboard devices, but I couldn’t figure out how it could be related and/or lead me to a workaround for this problem.
Any suggestions on how to deal with it? Thanks anyway for the awesome piece of code
After a bit of tinkering, my device appeared also as a pointer as “Network Tablet Pen (0)” . Using it
xinput map-to-output “$( xinput list --id-only “Network Tablet Pen (0)” )” HDMI-0
worked like a charm
