Description Joakim Svensson 2005-06-28 12:15:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
My Wacom Volito(1), is working fine as a mouse, moving the cursor on the screen according to pen on the pad. But the pen doesn't show up in Gimp 2.2.7 > Preferences > Input Devices, therefore I can't use the pressure sensitivity. 

I'm not sure it's a bug, but it's a feature that I think should work "out-of-the-box".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in Wacom Volito into USB
2. Start Fedora Core 4, with Gnome
3. Start The Gimp 2.2.7
4. Create document and move pen around

Actual Results:  It didn't detect any pressure changes, it's on 100% pressure all the time.

Expected Results:  Lines I draw should change according to the pressure amount given.

Additional info: �7.1

"Gimp Input Devices Dialog shows "No Input Devices" Gnome and
Gimp only work like a usual mouse, without pressure and tilt.

It seems that you have not compiled your gtk with XInput-support.
Please rebuild gtk and use ./configure --with-xinput=xfree for
building the Makefile. Then do a make && make install. Then rebuild
your gimp so that it uses this extendet gtk."

After some reading and some modification, the problem is no more.
I made the following changes in xorg.conf:

In [Section "ServerLayout"] I added
InputDevice    "cursor"    "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice    "stylus"    "SendCoreEvents"

and in [Section "InputDevice"] I added

Section "InputDevice"
  Driver        "wacom"
  Identifier    "cursor"
  Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/event2"
  Option        "Type"          "cursor"
  Option        "USB"           "on"


Section "InputDevice"
  Driver        "wacom"
  Identifier    "stylus"
  Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/event2"
  Option        "Type"          "stylus"
  Option        "USB"           "on"

Well, guess it's no bug then, but I don't think my grandma would be up to the
task adding stuff in xorg.conf, so I think it should be added automatically if a
Wacom unit is detected.
