#187 Two tablets with different id but same name?


Hi, today when cleaning up udev rules I found out, that 0x42 and 0x47 share same name - "Wacom Intuos2 6x8". I'm not sure, but how system (for example xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos2 6x8" ...) behave when someone plugs 0x42 and 0x47 at same time? Looking at other cases, I believe 0x47 should be renamed by adding "a" at end of name? Or it is OK to have same name for two devices?

    That was on purpose. 0x47 was reported by a user saying what he bought was Wacom Intuos2 6x8. But got id 0x47. There is no official product with an ID 0x47 from Wacom though.

    Just as a followup, I've tested having two identical tablets plugged in at the same time and things work fine. xsetwacom recognizes there are multiple devices with the same name and requires you to use the ID number instead. I don't imagine there'd be any issues caused by having the same name used by two different USB ids.
