Archlinux and GfxTablet



  • Re: GfxTablet and Archlinux

    My user is in the uinput group but whenever I try to use GfxTablet it never shows up. My evdev conf even already has the touchscreen section uncommented.

    #
    # Catch-all evdev loader for udev-based systems
    # We don't simply match on any device since that also adds accelerometers
    # and other devices that we don't really want to use. The list below
    # matches everything but joysticks.
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
            MatchIsPointer "on"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "evdev"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
            MatchIsKeyboard "on"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "evdev"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "evdev touchpad catchall"
            MatchIsTouchpad "on"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "evdev"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
            MatchIsTablet "on"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "evdev"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
            MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "evdev"
    EndSection

  • It seems to have been an incompatibility with the xf86-input-evdev-git package. Installing the package from the repos lets it work.
