#46 Enable to specify 'output rectangle'


As the current support for xrandr multimonitor setup seems to be pretty non-existing, it'd be nice to have at least some way to specify place, where the tablet places cursor (instead of the whole screen).

Use case: I have 2 monitors set up using xrandr (not twinview), however the 'screens' property shows 1, so I'm unable to use any options of wacom to only place cursor using tablet on one screen. Because of this, the 16:9 (probably) tablet gets stretched to something like 25:9 (and thus I'm not getting circles by drawing circles :-))

Proposal: I'm currently trying to implement this by adding options "CustomViewport", "CustomViewportX", "CustomViewportY", "CustomViewportW", "CustomViewportH" - which would specify rectangle, that would the tablet be mapped to, so it's pretty trivial... I'll post the patch here, once I manage to compile and use it.

(I've tried implementing it against 0.8.3 and, but once the modules are build, I'm getting some weird usb errors, only the version built from deb source works correctly :-( I hope to get this working...)

    Andrej, Please upload your working version on deb so we may use for general support later.

    Thank you.

    I guess it is not a problem any more?
