Is the wacomtablet kded at least available in the service system settings menu?

If so, could it be that kded4 is crashing (happens with the 1.2.3 release, should be fixed in 1.2.3b)

As for kubuntu, somehow pure cmake .. which installs everything in /usr/local prevents the kded part from showing up in the system settings menu
only cmake .. -DCMake_INSTALL_PREFIX='kde4config --prefix' which installs as usual into /usr works on my end.

did you use the packages from the suse build service above? could you maybe check if the same happens when you build the package on your own? - Oct 09 2010

is the kded started? in the system settings you can start/stop the kded services on its own.

usually when my program is installed the service is not started right away (but will start every time the system is restarted afterwards)

in case the kded is running, could you start the kded with debug output please.

to enable debug output, run:
kdebugdialog
and enable the output for the kded (or just everything)

in the konsole run:
kquitapp kded
then
kded4

Hi,

Quote:1- Can you please include missing pot/po files so we can translate the application and it will be better for distros to include this module
The pot files are now included in the file. About the translation process, as this program will hopefully soon be part of the KDE family the translation is done in the same way all translations are done in KDE (and some already started to translate it)

Quote:2- Can you also use "svn export" to get rid of .svn directories in tarball?
The tarball should be without any .svn directories now

Quote:3- Can you get the latest commits from KDE SVN and make this tarball up-to-date?

I've updated to the current status, that is available in kdereview at the moment. As I changed a lot in the tablet detection area, some more feedback is always appreciated.

Right now it is not possible.
Never thought about krandr support, but I will add it later on.

What tablet device is in the Lenovo?

Have a look at:
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/base/wacomtablet/README?view=markup

If your tablet is recognized via xsetwacom, it will work :)

Let me know if you have any poblems - Aug 22 2010

It is already in the i10n toolchain.

But not much is translated right now, so I left them out.

I'll move this out of playground after my exams in mid of September and afterwards you'll see it with the normal KDE SC release and proper translation. - Aug 22 2010

Hi,

the first and i guess the 2nd problems comes from the fact that I have no further informations about your tablet device.

Thus the necessary information is missing in the wacom_devicelist file

could you send me the output of

xsetwacom get "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5" TabletID

As soon as this information is given also the unnecessary elements mentioned in 3 will be hidden then.

Number 4 is on my long to-do list but as I'm heavily swamped with university I won't make any bigger changes before my last exam (15th of September)

As for number 5. If you want to set different settings for both is a matter of choice. I always set the behavior the same, but if you like you can have a different behavior on both sides

Great that you want to help out a bit with programming, always nice have some help :)
I never found a solution to load the kcmodule without installing it first. Thus I kept a working copy always ready to install again if my development branch does not work.

But please use the version found on the KDE SVN repro. I switched to it long time ago and just forgot to mentioned here.

If you have any further questions feel free to email me and I try to help you as much as possible

You need to install the package "gettext" otherwise the translation files can't be build.

have a look in your packagemanager for anything that sounds simmilar.

on debian based systems you can do

I'm glad you take the time to test this so no need to say sorry :)

Do you have any subdevices below the one you posted?

right know I'm looking for a line that tells me if the entry is a pad/stylus/eraser/cursor

on my system I can take the entry "input.x11_options.Type" for it seems this or similar is missing :/

I've added support for the xsetwacom list dev command now. YOu can test it with the latest source from
http://gitorious.org/kcm_tablet/kcm_tablet/archive-tarball/master
hope i made no mistakes otherwise I will correct them after along nap :) - Dec 30 2009

Starts to get a bit annoying ;)
Had a good feeling Solid will solve my issues with the propper device detection here.

could you maybe have a short look at your HAl output
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdeexamples/solid/minibrowser/

and see if your tablet is somewhere in this list and send me the entry's of it? maybe it is just a minor issue and there is still hope.

On the other hand, I can see xsetwacom list dev works for you. This never shows any output for my tablet. I will add it to my long list of checks to find the device names. This should at least make a "good workaround" for now - Dec 30 2009

soyrry for the late answer still no good internet here ;)

I don't use the "xsetwacom list dev" list beacuse it never worked with my usb tablet so far, seems there is a bug in the wacom tools. All I get is an empty list.

I like to switch the complete tablet detection to solid later on. But I have no way to checkout the latest trunk and play around with it right now, so I stick to this solution at the moment.
Atleast there is some progress :)
I will have a deeper look at it as soon as I have a bit more time, guess I can work on it again during the xmas holidays when I will be at home.

Thanks for your feedback though. I hope everthing will be sorted and working soon :) - Dec 14 2009

Hi!
could you try out the new master?
I did some more changes and enabled a bit more debugging output.

Your tablet should be detected directly (no need to change the line to the internal stylus name anymore)

and the other devices should be detected correctly now. If the profile is applied, there is a lot of debug output on the console, showing what xsetwacom commands will be used to set your tablet.

In case the module still don't work, could you check if the right device name was used in the xsetwacoms command?

thanks :) - Nov 29 2009

If your device is detected correctly then I have a few ideas to fix the issues finaly.

We are getting closer step by step :)
Will have a look in the next days. Unfortunatly I have no internet at home, just at work right now so the updates have to wait until saturday/sunday i guess. - Nov 24 2009

ok I fixed the small bug with right/middle penbutton now.

you can find the latest version at http://gitorious.org/kcm_tablet/kcm_tablet/archive-tarball/master

you should be able to set them and use them, as long as the pentip is on the tablet.
(Not sure which xsetwacom setting I need to change, to make these buttons work "in the air" right now)

Regarding the padbuttons. I need to change the keystroke dialoge to add an additional method for single characters, never thought about that as I use only keycombinations.

I set it on my list and change that soon. As long as the key combinations are working for you, the rest is easy to fix:) - Nov 23 2009

the current problem with my module is, that it looks for devices with the name "stylus/pad/eraser/cursor/touch" init, in your list all these devices are named Mouse[3], Mouse[4] and so on.

Oneway to fix it, rename the devices somehow (not sure if you have some kind of configuration in your xorg.conf file or some hal .fdi file

Another way, try the last version from http://gitorious.org/kcm_tablet/kcm_tablet/archive-tarball/master

might do the trick to identify your devices. In this case the first module tab should show the list of the found devices and everything might work now - Nov 23 2009

Didn't know there was this approach. I'll have a look into it.

Sadly I will be in Rotterdam for the next 2 month and not sure if I have internet during that time.

And thanks for the kind words, hope I'll make the module work for you too - Nov 22 2009

System Software by Etric 267 comments

easy way to fix this
you need to edit the "wacom_devicelist"

should be in /usr/share/kde4/apps/kcmtablet/data/

and add the number of buttons and if the graphire has vertical strips or not

The settings for the grapire is nearly at the top of the file :)
could you send me the informations about the button numer and so on?
I'll update the list on the git repro as soon sa possible then. - Nov 20 2009

No you are right. Was a bit to late for me yesterday.

Nonetheless I use the lsusb command only to identify the company and device name and xinput for the pad/stylus/earser/cursor names.

I can do a small workaround to handle it until i find out how to identify the
tablet corretly (name/device)

I will release a new update on this, together with the tablet/screen rotation settings I'm working on after the weekend.

Thanks for the feedback :) - Nov 05 2009

Hi

a quick search told me that the wacom driver can handle it

could you send me the output from lsusb

there is http://aiptektablet.sourceforge.net/

I'll have a look and see if i can combine it with the current module.

My goal is to create a single module that can configure all avilable tablets where a driver exist.

Unfortunatly I own just the Wacom Bamboo and I like to have a stable and working version for the wacom driver first before I add support fpr other driver types. - Nov 04 2009
