Running Linux (Ubuntu or Debian)
If it runs Android, it has Linux drivers, since Android runs on a Linux kernel. However Google maintains its own forked version of the Linux kernel source, and not all drivers have been ported back. There is no official Ubuntu distribution for ARM, but there are people working on an informal ARM port. That page lists OMAP ...
At present there are many obstacles to getting tablets of this kind to run a linux OS. Any attempt is likely to result in a Buggy install. However it technically can be done and I expect this to become easier in the near future.
I have an HP Stream 7 Tablet computer (shipped with windows 8.1). I have been trying for the ...
There are many ARM-based devices running Linux natively and even more that could. Yes, the drivers are often a problem - just as it was the case in the early years of Linux running on common PC desktops. So you should always dig into the subject of compatibility with particular device.
As far as building programs is concerned, the biggest problem is ...
I found this wiki post from ArchLinux and it does exactly what I need to do, except the numbers are a little off. This thread got too messy, I'm answering it, but there's still one last but that I need to work out (see below).
To follow the discussion on this last bit see this post.
Here is what I've done:
From xrandr I get:
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, ...
To recognize that Wacom tablets are best used with the wacom driver, Xorg needs an Xorg.xonf entry. Luckily you don't have to add one manually but it comes with the driver. On Gentoo, the config snippet is located in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf. If you didn't have the wacom driver installed the last time the X server was started, Xorg won't have ...
After various tests and installations with a Wacom Intuos draw CTL-490DW-S now everything works perfectly
1 - Install Linux-mint 17.3 64bit cinnamon
In the terminal :
2 - sudo apt-get update
3 - sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential
4 - download : http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/xf86-input-wacom/input-wacom/...
I don't have a fix but after half a day of frustration I think I have a work-around for you if you are using Debian 8 ("Stretch").
I had exactly the same symptoms:
UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U Mouse and Pen both working under (K)ubuntu, then after a disasterous upgrade to the latest LTS, the pen device disappeared after switching to Debian 8 (using xserver-xorg ...
Ok, I solved it:
the default Evdev Axis Calibration is fine (unplug & plug to delete previous values set by xinput set-prop)
the transformation matrix should be
width/tot_width 0 x_offset/tot_width
0 1 0
0 0 1
In my case width is 1920, tot_width = 2560+1440=4000, x_offset=320, therefore the complete command becomes
xinput set-prop "UC-LOGIC Tablet ...
Get into the BIOS/EFI Firmware Settings:
1) press the up-volume rocker and hold it, then
2) press the big round start button for three seconds.
After the black screen with the white Windows icon and the Lenovo logo clears, choose BIOS Setup from the pale green screen.
Choose Configuration from the Menu Bar and make sure Secure Boot is turned off.
After some time and doc/code reading, I finally found the solution.
If you just want to test the script (at the end of this answer), just run it as root with:
$ chmod +x completely_fake_tablet.py
$ sudo pip3 install libevdev
$ sudo ./completely_fake_tablet.py
then open gimp, add the device as an input device, choose a brush dynamic like Pencil Generic and ...
Youou!!! I managed to make a python script that gives me back the pressure on a new virtual device :-D Now I can use it with Gimp/Krita/... The only remaining part to do is to write a proper C driver and load it directly in the kernel... If you have some idea let me know!
So the idea of the script is to read the input from the event file of the ...

I don't have direct experience with these but I was able to find a couple of current things:
Canonical/Ubuntu just announced fairly recently (2018-02-04) a "platform that runs both a mobile-based full touch interface and a true PC experience from a single smart device"
postmarketOS is a Touch-Optimized Linux Distro for Smartphones and Tablets
Thanks for your research. I am having the exact same problem with my Dell Latitude 3379. My limited amount of searching yields nothing about configuring sensor updates. I don't really feel like spending the time diving into the kernel, so until some update fixes this, I am just going to run a bash script
How about using xbindkeys to detect and remap the key event to call xdotool?
With a button id of 123 your ~/.xbindkeysrc should contain something like
"xdotool key ctrl+z"
You can actually use xbindkeys to trigger any command you like.
Remember that you need to restart xbindkeys for the changes ...
This is because you are running wayland. Applications that use GTK3 (try libreoffice draw) will work, but applications build for Xorg using Xwayland will see two different mouse cursors, and not respond to the tablet
You can enable and disable touch with the following command:
xsetwacom --set 'Touch device name' Touch on
To map it to buttons, see this answer. Basically you map the tablet button to a keyboard key and then map that to a command. You can do the first with xsetwacom and the latter in the Gnome shortcuts settings.
To toggle the state, you can use --get and ...
According to the documentation, you can only configure a button to emit a keychord event, a mouse button event, or some tablet control functions. So to make a tablet button call a script, you'll need to do it in two steps: configure the button to simulate a keypress, and configure that keypress to call a script. Of course the keypress doesn't have to be a ...
I will try to answer as im 90% sure however note that i have no personal experiance.
First off, a weak multi core laptop processor will far out process a tablet. Secondly using a dedicated video with CUDA support to help with the cracking will DRAMATICALLY increase the speed (more than double the speed of the CPU)
With that said i would HIGHLY doubt that a ...
If your tablet came with Android installed, the place to start looking is the XDA site. There are all sorts of patches and mods there, and, depending on the exact model of your tablet, somebody might have ported a Linux distro to it. Some tablets even allow dual boot, others can't be modified at all (that is, there is no known way to root them).
I just got one of these for my daughter and had to get it going. It seems Wacom changed the USB IDs as part of the rebrand, so the latest drivers are needed. I was using Xubuntu 12.10, but hopefully the process is similar for all Ubuntu downstreams.
These are the steps I used:
Found out about the latest driver release here: http://sourceforge.net/...
I have a Planar 23 inch 2430mw display. It works flawlessly on touch with Windows 7 and 8. The only Linux Distribution which I have found which works out of the box is Ubuntu 11.10. I have tried Debian, Fedora , Suse and nothing I have found will even detect my display USB interface. I tried playing with Ubuntu 12.04 and tried everything I could find on the ...
MeeGo became Mer, and can run Unity or KDE Plasma Active. In fact there was a Mer/PA tablet made recently initially called the Spark--name changed to the Vivaldi.
