Toshiba Tecra M4 Wacom touch screen with xorg

Deniz Tarhan
Hello,

I've been trying to configure the Wacom touch screen of my Toshiba Tecra M4 to work with Ubuntu Linux 5.10 which uses xorg. Following some general advice given on other tablet pc models (there's next to no M4 specific info on the net since it's a very new model) and Brian Finney and Danny Kukawka's past conversation on the M4 on this list which I found in the archive, I've managed to get wacdump to respond to pen events, but x still doesn't recognize the tablet as an input device.

I have not manually installed the linux wacom driver; the xserver-xorg-input-wacom package (version 6.8.2-60) comes preinstalled with my distro and I'm assuming it is the required driver.

I've created a startup script that executes the command

setserial /dev/ttyS0 port 0x0338 irq 4 autoconfig

at startup. the script is in /etc/init.d and is linked at /etc/rcS.d . i've looked up the port and irq settings at the windows device manager and am sure that they are correct, since wacdump only responds to tablet input after this command is executed, and if i deliberately setserial to some incorrect value it does not. also, the only device wacdump recognizes is "c100" (with others it will spit out some WARN values and quit) thus i've tried setting the "ForceDevice" option in xorg.conf to "c100" as well, but that didn't work out either.

Below is my xorg.conf file, and i will very much appreciate any help on this issue. Specifically I'd very much like to hear from Brian Finney, who seems to have covered more ground than me, having got x to respond.

Thanks

d.

Not sure, but at SUSE and also Debian there is already a script for this. You
need only add the line to /etc/init.d/setserial

This is normal. You can use C100 for Tablet PCs.

This is wrong. For Tablet PCs you need 'Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"'

Re: Toshiba Tecra M4 Wacom touch screen with xorg

I've made the changes you suggested and now X is responding nicely to stylus movement. I still have a few problems though:

The stylus button does not register right clicks in Gnome. In some software such as firefox and gimp it is recognized (button + drag results in scrolling which is nice), and wacdump responds to it, so this must be an X or Gnome issue.

Also, in gimp the eraser isn't recognized. I've set all input devices to "screen" in Input Settings, but the eraser does not erase; it just moves the cursor.

I'll appreciate further help with these issues. Thanks for the help so far.

Re: Re: Toshiba Tecra M4 Wacom touch screen with xorg

i like it a lot. its performance is top notch, mostly thanks to the high speed hdd and bus, and the ddr2 ram. i've had hardware detection trouble with linux at first but since i switched to the 2.6.12 series of kernels just about everything is fine.

in gimp i do select the eraser tool for the eraser device, and paintbrush or some other tool for the stylus tip, and when i get the eraser close to the screen it does switch to the eraser tool. it just doesn't detect the touch event and start erasing.

also, i'm still out of luck with Gnome detecting right clicks. maybe i have to add something to xorg.conf for this to happen. do you have this problem as well? it would be helpful if you could post your xorg.conf here.

How do you like your new tablet?

in gimp the eraser is not strictly an eraser, it is simply another
input device that can be anything, make shure to select a tool and
then gimp will apply that tool when your using the "eraser"

also as soon as I get my wireless card working again I'll post my
xorg.conf so we can compare.

I personally don't use Gnome but I'll try that out tonight, as far as
it being an xorg.conf issue I will be sending my xorg to night as soon
as I get off work.  I'll also check my gimp configuration sense the
click event works fine for me in gimp.  The only issue I have in gimp
is that gimp still shows the cursor down and to the right of the
stylus.

My only major annoyances have been rotating the tablet input (which
per the website appears to have been merged so this may be fixed) and
lack of tablet input methods for std text (my personal favorite being
the dasher project -> http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/dasher/
however this has not been integrated into anything).  But these are
things that are always improving.

Re: Re: Toshiba Tecra M4 Wacom touch screen with xorg

Deniz Tarhan
ok, i've solved the gnome problem by adding the following to the stylus and cursor sections of the xorg.conf file:
 
Option         "Button2"    "3"

now comes my new problems: when i rotate the screen of my tablet pc with the xrandr x extension, stylus axises get messed up and cursor movement is perpendicular to the stylus movement. upon suggestions i've tried adding cursorCW and stylusCW devices to xorg.conf with
 
Option    "Rotate"    "CW"

but no luck. do i need to seperately activate or choose these devices, with xsetwacom maybe? i've tried setting the stylus mode with xsetwacom, but i'm getting errors. when i type "xsetwaco set stylus mode relative" i get the following:

Error (5): WacomConfigSetRawParam: Unknown X error
Set: Failed to set stylus value for 'Mode'

in short, i'm looking to find a way of inverting stylus orientation, if possible without restarting x. any help still appreciated.

is that gimp still shows the cursor down and to the right of the
stylus.

My only major annoyances have been rotating the tablet input (which
per the website appears to have been merged so this may be fixed) and
lack of tablet input methods for std text (my personal favorite being
the dasher project -> http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/dasher/
however this has not been integrated into anything).  But these are
things that are always improving.

i noticed that the driver changelog lists the "Support tablet orentation rotation for all tablets" feature for driver version 0.6.9. does this mean that the patch from Bjorn Bringert (see his original post here: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=11218956 ) is merged and present in the latest driver version?

thanks. i think my xorg configuration is fine now, but have you managed to apply the on the fly rotation patch as well?

can anyone using the latest driver version confirm this? i suspect it means the ability to rotate the tablet orientation with the "Rotate" "CW" and "CCW" options in the xorg.conf file.

Yes I use the latest version, but this patch is IMO not included in this
package if you take a look at the source code. There is also no option in
xsetwacom for rotation.

Not complete sure, but I think the package does not support on-fly rotation
for the wacom input devices.

Cheers,

Danny

*scratches head* I thought I saw this going into the CVS version...

Here is the fact: The patch isn't in. Tablet rotation is supported only in config file as "CW"/"CCW". This is because most tablet rotation happens with TabletPC or PL tablet which needs calibration. After each rotation, a recalibration should be followed. If the user messes up with rotation and calibration, their screen cursors will not follow their pen tips....  Unless we have a way to auto-calibrate the tablet after rotation, the on-fly patch isn't complete.
 
Another reason (I might be wrong) that I think on-fly rotation isn't as useful as it sounds is you'll need to modify xorg.conf to set the video card driver, right?

the xrandr extension for x lets one rotate an x screen on the fly, and it works flawlessly, so there's no need to restart x to rotate the screen itself. i've heard only success stories with the patch; actually i've read three reports from three people who applied the patch, and none of them mentioned the need for recalibration.

tablet pc users are in desparate need of this feature, so maybe links to a patched wacom_drv.o and xsetwacom should be provided for those like myself who can't apply the patch themselves.

I agree that it is really usefull to have on-fly rotation for Tablet PCs. And
I don't need to recalibrate the device after rotate (with "CW"/"CCW"). This
works perfect.

But I can't agree that the XRandR extension works perfect. The RandR rotation
only works with the xorg SiS driver and for the commercial NVIDIA driver (and
not for xorg nv-modul). For the most modern tablet pc's this does not work,
because they use intel centrino with >=i855/i915 grafic chipset and also
fbdev can't rotate on-fly.

I agree ... would be really appreciated to get the patch in.

Cheers,

Danny

right, i think many ultra-compact class tablets are using intel integrated video these days, but higher end models that have independent graphics GPUs are getting better everyday in terms of proprietary driver support. i have no problems with xrandr in my nvidia equipped tablet, but the RandR rotation feature was only introduced in a recent driver version. i guess drivers and modules for other chips will also improve over time and integrate this feature, so it doesn't hurt to have on the fly orientation rotation built into the driver, since this is how the tablet pc was meant to work in the first place.
