Out of the blue I received an updated source file in my mailbox for the Linux Wizardpen driver from a very nice guy called Mike. The driver itself addresses a significant amount of improvements including optimization for performance, which I was completely astonished and blown away by it as I previously have to deal with sluggishness when painting in a maximized GIMP window.
You can download it from the link below:
(*Note: Yeah, I'm being a stupid dumbass for plugging a version number myself... but I suppose the improvement warrants a major number increment ;)
List of features: (*Note: UNTESTED means I was never able to test it myself, please feedback if you had problems with it)
- Major performance and reliability improvements
- (UNTESTED) Support for bundled scroll-wheel mouse (I know a lot of people wanted this, hence bolded ;)
- Pressure sensitivity now configurable (Xorg param: TopZ and BottomZ; range: 0-1024)
- Reliable button press/release event mechanism (using pressure thresholds)
- (UNTESTED)Support vertical tablet orientation (useful if are using stacked dual monitors and want the tablet layout to the vertical orientation) (Xorg param: Rotate90 - "0" or "1"
- [UNTESTED] Ability to tell driver your screen size in case gets confused (xorg param: ScreenX and ScreenY)
- Debug mode (Xorg parm: debugyn - "0" or "1")
Do have to iterate the fact that Mike should be credited fully for his work and I'm just disseminating this piece of good code :).
Have fun experimenting and post any bugs or issues found!
(*NOTE: My webhost is acting stupid again, so have to exploit the resources of the "empire" from now :p)
