Okay, Colors! v11 supports Wacom tablets, with pressure sensitivity. Instructions for setup are on the activity page, it's really pretty simple.
OLPC folks, it might be nice to update xorg-dcon.conf to support Wacom tablets, and to include the linuxwacom package in builds. I think that deployments would be well served to have a few cheap graphics tablets available for art classes, etc. If you're interested, the Colors! activity bundle contains the fixed xorg-dcon.conf. http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Colors! -Wade On Mon, Dec 1, 2008 at 12:34 AM, Tomeu Vizoso <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > [adding sugar-devel to cc as it's of interest to other platforms than olpc] > > On Sun, Nov 30, 2008 at 10:52 PM, Chris Marshall > <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: >> [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: >>> wade wrote: >>> > I'm partly set up to build kernels, I can give it a try at some point. >>> > >>> > Ultimately though, just mouse position and clicking isn't nearly >>> > enough.
