I've installed this in Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity. I couldn't find out how can I start this. Or is there some problem with Unity?

This is unlikely to work with Unity ever.

In order to work properly it needs the kde deamon, so this won't work outside of the KDE enviroment.

First, great job!

Second. I have two tablets, settings apply to only one. Wacom bamboo 2nd and 3rd gen, plugged together.

♪ xsetwacom --list
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen stylus id: 13 type: STYLUS
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen eraser id: 14 type: ERASER
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger touch id: 15 type: TOUCH
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger pad id: 20 type: PAD
Wacom Bamboo Pen Finger touch id: 21 type: TOUCH
Wacom Bamboo Pen Finger pad id: 26 type: PAD
Wacom Bamboo Pen Pen stylus id: 27 type: STYLUS
Wacom Bamboo Pen Pen eraser id: 28 type: ERASER

I'd love to fix this, but in the mean time, I'm very happy.

The only thing I want for the 2nd gen is to get 'hover click'. I can set it with xsetwacom, if I know what parameter that is... Do you know?

Hi! As a maintainer of this app in Debian, I find that naming it x.y.z-something is bad for us downstreamers (ie, distros), as we keep the package version with -something.

The change you made has enough merit to release 1.3.8, as it's a minor change.

Thanks, Lisandro.

Hi, I have a Wacom tablet BambooPT 2FG 4x5. The driver recognizes the device and its buttons, while setting buttons, the driver records the actions for example "a" or "b", shitf, etc. and apply the changes. But when I set krita or gimp or pencil to use the keys, nothing happens, I build multiple profiles, but do not work, do not work the settings default buttons, ie button 1, button 2, button 3 until the last them.
The function of the area to turn them touch works well, assigning excellent work functions pencil, eraser on the pen tip and excellent work, but ultimately you can not configure the buttons to assign actions or functions.

Hi,
sorry for the late answer.

Can you please
* deinstall the wacom kcm stuff
* start "xev" on the console
* point the mouse over the opened window
* press the button 1 on the tablet
* check which button gets reported in the console
* do the same with all other buttons

Now with the list of buttons

* now install the latest version again
Than you can change the file
/usr/share/kde4/apps/wacomtablet/data/wacom_devicelist

find you tablet in this list and change the lines

hwbutton1=1
hwbutton2=2
hwbutton3=3
hwbutton4=8

according to your observations.

Afterwards reconnect the tablet and everything should work again.
Please send me your changed lines so I can put it into git again

Hi,

I bought a wacom bamboo tablet, and started using the kcm. First, thanks for developing this, it contains all the options I can think of, maybe except a testing area ;)


I have the following issues:

* I can set a shortcut for toggling the touch feature of my device, but I have to reapply the kcm when I reconnect the tablet.

* I can not get buttons to work. I tried to assign a shortcut and a modifier, to no avail. I do not understand what the "button" option does. Assigning a modifier, the text below the buggon reads "activate widget 21", and the choice is not remembered. Assigning a keystroke (eg "ctrl + z") looks fine, but it does not work, the keystroke is not sent.

If you would rather receive bug reports on bugs.kde.org, let me know :)

Hi,

yes please add this bug to bugs.kde.org. This helps to sort this kind of stuff out for the upcomming 2.0 release.

Both bugs should not happen.
Please also add to the bugreport which version you are running (1.3.6/1.3.7 or the newest 2.0 beta1)

For the "button" stuff.
If you set one of the Expresskeys to emit a "Button 1" signals thats exactly the kind of signals which is send via X11.

For a mouse Button 1 is a left click, button 2 is middle, button 3 is right click. You could this way around also set "Button 1" from teh tablet assign to any other program you wanna use.

Using keystrokes is on the other hand the mor natural choice to do. So we rather try to fix this :)

Thanks for answering :)

The shortcut for toggling the touch functionality now works (after restarting kde), except the setting does not stick after replugging the device.

I filed https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310670 for the button actions.

I have got many things working now. I can see if I choose keystrokes carefully and use KCM_tablet to map them to expresskeys on pad that I can make GIMP and KDE respond.
I don't understand the option to map expresskeys (buttons) to buttons instead of keystrokes. The manual says "emulates a general button event press" which does not leave me any wiser. Can anyone help please?

So with the devicelist change from above you tablet is detected correctly now?

The button/keystroke mapping works in the following way:

The Hardwarebuttons on your tablet can be mapped to "Button 1/ Button 2" etc and when you press them the xserver emits a signal that a "Button 1 click" happend. For a mouse Button 1 is a interpreted as left click, Button 2 is right click and so on. For the Keyboard/tablet the system sends a Button 1 event but no program knows what to do with it usually.

This means you need to tell your program to listen to Button4 if you press the hardware button 4 to make this work.

To make it easier you can also assign keystrokes instead of button events.

If you assign CTRL+C to your HardwareButton 4 and than the copy event is send by the xserver and this will work out of the box in any program, without the need to configure anything else.

I'm using the following software versions:
opensuse 12.2 with updates to
kernel desktop 3.6.0-2.1,
kcm_tablet (1.3.6-1.1),
KDE 4.8.5 release 2,
xf86-input-wacom 0.15.0-2.1.2

The tablet works quite nicely without your applet but your applet does recognise the tablet and allow me some control of profiles etc. Some features, which of course work in Windows, do not work in Linux and I listed some in the comments in the listing. I need to add "gestures" to the list of missing bits. There is a table of these at http://www.wacomeng.com/windows. Some work in LibreOffice in Linux but not in Gimp and MyPaint where I really want them.
I have not yet worked out how Gimp should recognise the pad buttons.
The manual at
http://www.wacom.eu/_bib_user/dealer/man_int5_en.pdf
is useful for once.
I look forward to the new libWacom based version!

These are settings for the wacom_devicelist file. Note that this tablet is recognised differently when the wacom usb wireless is plugged in, so there are 2 sections. One conflicts with a waltop device, so need to delete that device - unless program can be made to detect manufacturer first.

The comments reflect my remaining uncertainties on first attempt!

#AJF 2012-10-07

#NB

# (1) delete conflicting device [0027] in waltop file
# (2) Can't set profiles unless tablet recognised (which this manages)

#ToDo

# (1) Is model 650 or 650/K
# (2) Button mapping? Values returned from xsetwacom don't make much sense
# (3) Wheel or touchring? - Manual refers to touchring
# (4) Read battery status in wireless mode
# (5) Read / Set touchring status and its 4 modes (In windows allows 4 different actions for touchring eg scroll / pen size / zoom ...)

I'm a bit confused here.

Your tablet can be conneted in 2 different ways? Via USB cable (0x27) and a wireles dongle (0x84) ?

The conflict with th ewaltop device should on the other hand not happen. There is a manufacturer detection available. But i nevertested it. As it seems there is a bug in there.

Currently the wacom config is rewritten to fix some remaining bugs and add support for libwacom and others to it (done by Alexander Maret-Huskinson)

We'll fix this bug in the new version than.

No, you are not confused!
I have this tablet
http://www.wacom.eu/index2.asp?pid=8004
which has a USB connection. There are other models in the series which have different model codes. If you look at the bottom of the page you can see the optional wireless connection kit. To my surprise, xsetwacom reports a different device ID and name - it looks as if the wireless might report the same name for all the models when used this way, since there is no mention of the underlying tablet model.
Since my original post I have rewritten my wacom_devicelist file so that both modes have the same name - then your applet only needs the one set of profiles, for the two connection methods.

Hi.
First of all: THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS!!

I had almost the same problem here with a:
"Intous5 S" S=small and has 2 buttons less than the M or bigger models.

When connected to USB it was first detected as
Waltop device 0x26.

So it looks like the Manufacturer detection still needs some work.

After renaming the "waltop_devicelist" to "waltop_devicelist.orig"
I added the following section [0026] in

Wacom Intuos5 touch S Pen pad id: 14 type: PAD
Wacom Intuos5 touch S Finger touch id: 15 type: TOUCH

When connected via the Wacom wireless receiver it was (like the Intuos5 M )detected as:
xsetwacom --list devices
Wacom Wireless Receiver Finger touch id: 8 type: TOUCH
Wacom Wireless Receiver Pen stylus id: 9 type: STYLUS
Wacom Wireless Receiver Pen eraser id: 13 type: ERASER
Wacom Wireless Receiver Pen cursor id: 14 type: CURSOR
Wacom Wireless Receiver Pen pad id: 15 type: PAD

To reflect the "Intuos5 S" I changed the section [0084] to the same as section [0026]

This works for me at the moment, but
the wirless kit (according to Wacom ) can be used for Intuos5 and Bamboo Touchpads.

According to Wacom
http://uk.shop.wacom.eu/accessories/bamboo-cth-470k/wireless-kit-for-bamboo-und-intuos-5?c=86366

Please note: Compatible only with the following models:
Intuos5: PTH-450-XX, PTH-650-XX, PTH-850-XX
Bamboo: CTH-470K-xx*, CTH-470S-xx* und CTH-670S-xx*!
*(please replace "xx" with DE, EN, FR, IT, ES, NL, PL or RU)

I hope you can fix this for future releases.

Cheers, thanks and keep up the good work

I have added the [0026] parts to the default list of known device files. This the manufactoring detection should not be a problem anymore.

Regarding the wireless "problem" AFowle mentioned already, that the wirless adapter reports a different id for the connected tablet.

This means, detection the tablet correctly is out of my scope here.

yoY should get different tablet id when you connect your tablet and call
xsetwacom get Wacom Intuos5 touch S Pen pad" TabletID

Sadly the only "workaround" I know is to manually change the waom_device file. Some hopes are still left, there does exit a libWacom that is the future way to unify the tablet detection. Alex and I are going to adapt to this library in the future and thus remove our own tablet detection code. Hopefully this will resolve this issue "one day".

I have a new tablet which is not recognised by the existing code. It worked pretty well with the defaults, but I kept getting messages about inability to set or create profiles. Seems a shame when tablet basically worked!

Any plans on adding a left-handed option?

I remember someone else already ask this a while ago.

Th question is, what exactly needs to be changed to make it left-handed friendly?

Hi,
I'm using a Bamboo Pen CTL-470K on Kubuntu 12.04.
The tablet works fine out-of-the-box, but there are a few settings that I'd like to tweak so I installed your app (1.3.5 according to the package manager).
However I have an issue with it : I cannot configure anything. My tablet is recognized by the panel, but it keeps saying that "the default profile does not exist" and when I try to make a change and apply it, it says "the profile does not exist" and the change isn't applied. I've tried to create a new profile but it didn't work either.
What should I do ?
Thanks in advance.
