Hi list and Peter,
this is a continuation from linuxwacom-devel mailing list - the full thread
(few messages actually) can be found here
So let's start from the beginning. I had a problem: when I pressed a key on
keyboard, then a PAD button on tablet that emitted a key and then a normal PAD
button on the tablet, the mouse moved to [0,0] and mouse input "freezed". The
"freeze" means that mouse (tablet/ordinary mouse) moves, but there are no
hover effects, no menu selection, no clicks accepted by applications - until
some key is pressed.
The move to [0,0] has been fixed by the patch from Peter Hutterer from this
mailing list - patch with subject:
[PATCH v2] dix: don't update the slave coordinates from the VCK.
The mouse input "freeze" problem is still there, the steps to reproduce have
changed: I have to press a key on keyboard, then double-click button 2 on
tablet (no movement events in between - reproduced both with tablet PAD key
and with tablet pen). What happens is that with only the single-click the
local menu opens (but everything works); with double-click the menu opens, but
doesn't go away as usual - the mouse input "freezes" instead (as described
My guess is that there are still some valuators problems, so that the
application grabs the mouse input and doesn't know what to do next.
Thanks for any help.
