I’m at Deventer, we are having Krita sprint. I’m trying to implement some new stuff in Krita and I can’t :'( Tablet stopped to work for me in Krita and basically in Qt. I don’t see tablet events (qt example in widgets/tablet does not show anything), so no pressure, no tilt, just mouse events.
I have Fedora 12, Qt 4.6.2. linuxwacom was replaced by xorg-x11-drv-wacom, so there are no utilities like wacdump or xidump now.I removed old configuration lines in xorg.conf. They were needed long time ago, I used to setup my tablet according wacom tablet. I depend on the evdev now. The tablet work in mypaint and in Gimp. I have pressure support there.
I don’t have tablet pressure in Qt example in qt4/examples/widgets/tablet nor in Krita.
Cyrille proposed to check this command:
xlsatoms | grep -i wacom 303 Wacom Tablet Area 304 Wacom Rotation 305 Wacom Pressurecurve 306 Wacom Serial IDs 307 Wacom Strip Buttons 308 Wacom Wheel Buttons 309 Wacom TwinView Resolution 310 Wacom Display Options 311 Wacom Screen Area 312 Wacom Proximity Threshold 313 Wacom Capacity 314 Wacom Pressure Threshold 315 Wacom Sample and Suppress 316 Wacom Enable Touch 317 Wacom Hover Click 318 Wacom Tool Type 319 Wacom Button Actions 430 Wacom Stylus 431 Wacom Cursor 432 Wacom Eraser
So it looks ok. Have you got idea how to fix it? It seems that it is Fedora issue, other Krita developers
have working tablet support out of the box in the OpenSuse. I checked if the tablet support is compiled in Fedora, it is.
Krita hackers are offering me CD of OpenSuse. I like my Fedora, I don’t give up so far…Please, help if you can 😉
Sven Langkamp has also this same problem as I do, he is also on Fedora 12 these days.
I filled bugreport for Fedora https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=569132
Also for Qt http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTBUG-8599
UPDATE: It works now with some patch. Fedora will ship some update soon. Thanks to Thomas Zander for the patch and Fedora guys for providing me test build!
