I tried to install Inkscape Fedora RPM, but for some reason the last
repository version seems highly broken (at least with my package setup).
I should compile it by myself when I have some time (lots of libraries
Anyway, your problem description is EXACTLY mine.
Did you try disabling the eraser (not the stylus)?
In that way, the mouse works (but not the eraser, of course).
You should move the stylus to 'activate' the mouse.
Is this also the behavior in Inkscape?
