Problems with hiddev tablet support.
I'm trying to get a KBGear JamStudio tablet working under RH9. I can use it as a mouse pointer, but can't get the precision (x,y) and pressure working under the GIMP. The original writer of the js_x driver for XFree86 (supports JamStudio) suggests using devices like /dev/usb/hiddev0. However, when I try to use them, it simply says "No such device". I tried /dev/input/mouse? and /dev/input/event? but they didn't work in the GIMP. I have my tablet set up as your typical pointing device:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event0"
InputDevice "Stylus" ""
These are the applicable lines. When I go into the GIMP and select Dialogs->Input Devices, it lists the Stylus device there. However, I get no response from the GIMP when I try to use it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Even if it's just specifics about why I might not be able to get the raw /dev/usb/hiddev0 device to work. Thanks!
