Wacom driver with Intuos tablet does not report button press after a proximity leave/re-enter
Last modified: 2013-03-03 21:48:03 EST
Description of problem:
The driver for Wacom tablet in the kernel does not report the stylus button being pressed after a proximity leave/re-enter event for Intuos tablets.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Install and configure a Wacom Intuos tablet on EL5
2) Press and hold a button on the stylus
3) Move away from button while still holding down the stylus
4) Move back into the button coordinates while still holding down stylus
The button does not retain the button-pressed event on moving back into focus
Button should retain button-pressed event on moving back into focus.
The upstream maintainer of the Wacom driver (Ping Cheng <firstname.lastname@example.org>) has identified the portion of code missing in the driver we are shipping in EL5 and provided a patch to the customer.
The patch adds a portion of code that is present in the driver upstream,in wacom_intuos_inout() in wacom_wac.c:
A test kernel including that patch has been provided to the customer who confirmed that it fixes the issue.
This was related to a WACOM Cintiq 21UX tablet. As the WACOM Intous and the Cintiq share the same driver, they are both affecteed.
