Hello, I'm new here.
I have a toshiba M7 convertible laptop tablet. In any
mode but landscape primary (you flip the screen and
can choose to have it in portrait mode to write on
like a pad of paper) the tablet input still thinks it
is in primary landscape or something and the axis' are
all off so when i draw something with the calligraphy
tool it is not where the cursor is. it works fine
with the mouse. from what i have researched it has to
do with inkscape (and the gimp) using the older wacom
API as opposed to the newer HID that does not support
rotate. Is there a workaround or fix for this? Maybe
editing some variable to make it think it is always in
portrait mode? I really don't want to have to go back
to illustrator, but will have to if I have to turn my
whole tablet around backwards to use it with the usb
and lan ports all sticking at my stomach.
i am using windows xp tablet edition. does the custom
linux wacom driver work with screen rotation? i could
install linux if i had to. or is it hard coded in the
program and have nothing really to do with the wacom
Any help is appreciated,

Well, the problem probably is in GTK+, not quite Inkscape itself. GTK
+ is the widget toolkit that Inkscape and the gimp are both built on
I don't happen to know a work-around off-hand, but I do know this is
something people would like to help fix. In fact, we were just
discussing this last weekend at the Linux conference in Southern
The main problem is that none of the developers I know of have such
hardware. However, if you are interested in working together some
people should be able to come up with various things to try.
