#109 0.8.1-3 freezes after touching tablet (ie. clicking)

After installing X driver from 0.8.1-3 everything seems fine at start but after touching tablet with a pen (ie. clicking) no events are sent untill I move pen way away from tablet (ie. such distance that pen is no longer powered or whatever).

If I do cat /dev/input/event4 in console everything seems to work (ie. some text is sent after I click and move pen around).

My tablet is Bamboo. I'm suing X.Org X Server 1.4.2 (that's what X -version says) and Linux 2.6.26.2 with wacom module compiled in.

Everything is fine on 0.8.0-3. Wasn't able to compile 0.8.1-2.

    Hey Michal, you are really living on the cutting edge (I mean 2.6.26 and 1.4.2). I'd like to resolve your issue if you still see the problem with 0.8.1-4. Please upgrade to 0.8.1-4 and let me know your result.

    Living on the edge is what brings sens to my life. ;) The bug is still present in 0.8.1-4.

    Email me the output of your compiling error so I can take a look.

    I've just tested 0.8.1-1 -- it does not work neither.

     
  • I see the compiling bug with 0.8.1-2. It is fixed with 0.8.1-4. With 0.8.1-4, Do you mean you still see the compiling error or your system freezes? If your system freezes, please email me the last /var/log/Xorg.0.log with option "Commondbg" "12" and option "debuglevel" "12" added to you /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    What Linux distribution are you running? I'd like to setup a system like yours to see the issue myself.

  • I'm seeing this too with linuxwacom 0.8.1-4 , debian/unstable x86 packaged xorg 1.4.2 and linux kernel 2.6.26 . Wacom cintiq+partner, both affected. It's only the stylus tip or eraser i.e. "left"-button/button-1 that freezes the pointer, buttons 2 and 3 are unaffected. The effect is visible in xidump.

     
  • Sorry it took so long, I was extremally busy lately.

    Attached is xorg.0.log.

    I'm using Slackware current with hand configured linux kernel.
