I want to use my old Genius MousePen 8x6 graphics tablet with my notebook running Debian stretch (testing) amd64 and Gnome 3.20.
The tablet was already working before I reseted the OS, now it isn't. The tablet LED flashes if I touch it with the pen, but the coursor doesnt move and no clicks are recognized. (even in
~ % lsusb Bus 002 Device 009: ID 5543:0005 UC-Logic Technology Corp. Tablet WP8060U
(lsusb -v here: http://nopaste.linux-dev.org/?1119974).
~ % xinput list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ RAPOO RAPOO 5G Wireless Device id=11 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=14 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] [...]
Usually the tablet is shown up here as two devices:
UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U Mouse and
UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U Pen. The first device is for the optional mouse (I dont own it, so I cant try), the second one for the pen, which is not working.
What I also found (and what I think is most important):
% sudo libinput-ist-devices libinput error: libinput bug: Device 'UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U Pen' does not meet tablet criteria. Ignoring this device. [...] Device: UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U Mouse Kernel: /dev/input/event15 Group: 4 Seat: seat0, default Capabilities: pointer Tap-to-click: n/a Tap-and-drag: n/a Tap drag lock: n/a Left-handed: disabled Nat.scrolling: disabled Middle emulation: disabled Calibration: n/a Scroll methods: button Click methods: none Disable-w-typing: n/a Accel profiles: flat *adaptive Rotation: n/a
I booted a live Lubuntu 16.04, there worked the tablet without problems, in
xinput list and
libinput-list-devices were both devices shown.
So, what can I do to fix this?
