Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch

Postby oakdenal » Thu Feb 28, 2013 7:42 pm

I have successfully got my graphics tablet to work in Mint 13. I was wondering how I could disable the touch on the tablet?

I have seen a few terminal commands or bash scripts flying about, but none of them seem to be working for me.

In order to get my tablet working i followed Step 1 in the guide here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... ost9496609 , after that everything has worked very well, just wish i could disable touch - should've got the cheaper Pen version! :lol:

The specific model is bamboo pen & touch CTH-470k-EN

Hi oakdenal,

Welcome to Mint forums!

See part VII. "Touch toggle script with notification" on the BambooPT HOW TO: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=110408

There have been some improvements on pen and touch arbitration and they're still working on it. So possibly a more recent xf86-input-wacom might be better. They just came out with xf86-input-wacom- so 0.20 is just a week or two away.
