Hi, I purchased a wacom tablet CTH-460 series, I have KDE 4.93 desktop, platform ubuntu 12.04, and the driver for the tablet that provides kde 1.3.7 kcm. In this driver, you can set configuration parameters for the tablet buttons or ExpressKeys (4 buttons in my case), the problem is that when I assign the changes I want as a letter or function or command, the driver registers it , but when you apply it in gimp, Krita, MyPaint or pencil, simply do not work. I got in touch with who designed kcm 1.3.7 software, and told me a number of parameters to see if the tablet was fine with the device xsetwacom command and others, he suggested assigning numerical values to buttons 1 to 10, for ExpressKey, and to do it and type it from the terminal, nothing happened. Resend the data information to progranmmador and told me that the driver does not support linuxwacom that tablet, so I can not assign values or functions to the ExpressKeys on the tablet, the other functions as they work quite well, in my opinion. Then, how can i assign values to the buttons on my tablet CTH-460, can you support it?
appreciate any help.
Yes ExpressKeys are supported for the CTH-460 with xsetwacom. See the wiki's Tablet Configuration page: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/linuxwacom/index.php?title=Tablet_Configuration Also see the BambooPT HOW TO part IV and V..: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=110408 Notice the buttons are not ordered as 1,2,3,4 but instead as 3,8,9,1.
As I recall there was a bug in the original default KCM for Wacom in Kubuntu Precise so you had to compile a newer version. But I thought that was fixed, I think by 1.3.7, including ExpressKeys.
hi, thank by the help…. i was talking previously with alexander maret(kcm 1.3.7) , he taught me how assign values to the expresskey using the terminal, you know xset wacom set etc etc, it supposes that i assign a number to the expresskey , when i type on the terminal it must to be represented in terminal whne i press the key of the tablet, but nothig happens . ok , now i muy try what you post me, well, i was watching, but it is a litle confused to me … can you tell me in what order to start?
can i make a script to assign function to the expresskey without cloning repository or not update the driver ? …..
