Greetings fellow PCLOS'ers!
I found something I figured might be handy for other artistic users such as myself. Especially newcomers. Please note that I DID do a search to see if anything like this was already up. But the search returned nothing.
So, I'll go ahead and share this info in hopes that it helps ease the pain of a few others.
When I 1st came to PCLOS(PCLOS07). Getting Wacom drivers working was a NIGHTMARE
. My constant issue was everytime I picked up the stylus and placed it back down on the tablet. It would shoot my cursor across the screen^^. But as PCLOS moved on and gotten better. So did the device drivers. So much in fact that by the ending lifecycle of PCLOS09 to this point. The drivers became pretty darn solid. No more "jumping spider cursor(Jumpy & jittery)"! Which is an awesome thing. But, what most of us at that time were hoping for. Was a means to regain pressure detection. And lets face it. Not too many of us were to bold to dink around with the xorg files
Upon browsing around Youtube last night. I stumbled across this vid:
Even though its Fedora. This guy here walks you through getting pressure sensitivity working again! However, it only works in GIMP. If Im not mistaken. Even according to the guy in the vid. Almost all other graphic editors have these same settings too. So, to all those into graphic art. With a Wacom tablet or other tablet device. You'll need to go through each one of those graphic apps you're using and look for these settings.
I will give heads up that the part where he states: "just look for anything saying "Wacom [device name]" and set it to screen". Did not work in my case. In that vid he finds 3 things marked as Wacom and setted them accordingly. So, incase any of you have the same issue I did. Where only 1 Wacom item showed up. And even setting it didnt do anything. Look for these 3 items: Stylus1, Eraser, & Cursor. And set them each as needed. Save the configuration and enjoy!
Beats gambling on fiddling with xorg files
