Description Peter Hutterer 2018-02-08 21:02:01 EST
Created attachment 1393486 [details]

Description of problem:
Changing the Wacom stylus tip pressure/eraser pressure changes the dconf setting but not the driver property so it ends up being a visually pleasing noop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. xinput watch-props "Wacom Intuos Pro M Pen stylus"
2. control-center/devices/wacom: change slider for tip pressure
3. bring stylus into proximity of physical tablet
4. observe xinput watch-props output

Actual results:
Some properties change (tablet area, rotation, serial ids) but not the pressure values.

Expected results:
Something like:
Property 'Wacom Pressurecurve' changed.
	Wacom Pressurecurve (301):	75, 0, 100, 25

Additional info:
Mutter expects a wrong property format, afaict the property has been 32 bits since around 2011 and has not changed, mutter expects it to be 8 bits. The mismatch causes change_property to never actually change the property (quietly...)

Patch is attached

With mutter-3.26.2-12.el7, pressure adjustments work as expected.
