I am trying to configure my Wacom tablet to use as my primary pointing
device. Actually, I have no mouse attached to the computer. I only have
The pointer responds to directions from the tablet, so I have some
ability to navigate in the Gnome environment. However, I can not
configure or control the settings, which means that the pointer is not
behaving in a manner that allows for the most comfortable interface.
To modify the xorg.conf file, I need to determine which device driver
is handling my tablet.
I have narrowed down the possibilities to event0 or mouse0.
When I run the following commands:
sudo cat event0
sudo cat mouse0
... and move my pen over my tablet, I get a bunch of feedback,
indicating that either one, or both, could be responsible for my tablet.
In my xorg.conf file, where it says:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event0"
... after "Device", should it be event0 or mouse0 or something else?
Why are both responding to my tablet?
Thanks for any help.
