Description Chad Calkins 2005-07-30 09:02:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050514 Fedora/1.0.4-0.fdr.1.2 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Wacom driver will only take the first set of events when running X.  As soon as the pen is pulled away and not moving the cursor anymore the cursor cannot be moved again by the pen without restarting X.

This machine is a table pc.  

wacdump indicates that the serial port appears to be configured correctly as it provides reasonable output.  The xorg.conf file even appears to be correct.  But, only a the first continuous touch to the screen works.  After that the only way to move the pointer is with the mouse.

The expected behaviour is for the stylus to work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11.i386 6.8.2-37

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart X
2. Move cursor with wacom stylus
3. Lift stylus from screen
4. Move the cursor again with the stylus

Actual Results:  Cursor did not move

Expected Results:  Cursor should move

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
