      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

wacom tablet and laptops

Recommended Posts

the new linuxwacom rpms for mandriva 2007.1 (in main/backports ) are OK!



Some useful details for laptops and Wacom tablet:


1 Never let mouse or stylus upon the tablet when power on : it will freeze the start of system after bios ! (if you remove them, then the MBR reading starts!) :wall:


2 Never let the mouse nor the stylus upon the tablet if you stop working and let the laptop get sleeping : when you wake it up the mouse or stylus won't be useable ! :o

In that case you can always get them work correctly by using the Wacom control panel (mandriva-menu/system/configuration/hardware/Wacom control panel) if you installed the linuxwacom-controlpanel rpm.

Just click on one item (stylus or cursor) then click on tool button, then click on OK, then click on EXIT and everything is allright again! :thumbs:
