Current version of xserver-xorg-input-wacom in testing/unstable
(0.30.0-1) has a regression which doesn't let to use simple button
remapping. For example typing such a command:
xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pen stylus" button 3 2
the last argument will not be parsed correct and will always be
treated as 1, which makes it impossible to re-map buttons on the
Surely, there's possibility to use remap like `button 3 "button 2"`
but that only solves partial problem, because it makes tablet to
generate button click event, making it impossible to "hold" button
while dragging stylus over the tablet surface.
This is actually a bug in 0.30 upstream version which was fixed later by
Just did a quick test by packing 0.33 upstream version into .deb
package works fine and installing it solves the problem.
