Anyway, plug it in and you're up and running. If you use your fingers it'll work like a regular touchpad (i.e. movement is relative to the previous location) whereas if you use the stylus the movement is absolute. You can use the GNOME 3 wacom app to change the setting:
You can now draw
You can compare my hand-writing on paper vs using the tablet. Neither is particularly flattering for someone in their mid-thirties...
You can then erase
can set the fullscreen view by editing the ~/.xournal/config file -- first generate the file by hitting Options/Save Preferences. Next, edit it and change the interface_fullscreen variable.
which looks like this:interface_fullscreen=drawarea pen_toolbar
Finally, to disable touch input during a presentation do this:
First get your device name
xsetwacom --list devicesWacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen stylus id: 10 type: STYLUS Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger touch id: 11 type: TOUCH Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen eraser id: 15 type: ERASER Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger pad id: 16 type: PAD
sudo vim /usr/bin/toggle_touch#!/bin/bash ## Get the "Device name" or ID number ## for touch from 'xsetwacom list dev' DEVICE="Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger touch" TOUCH_STATE=`xsetwacom get "$DEVICE" touch` if [ "$TOUCH_STATE" == "on" ] then echo "Touch is ON, turning OFF." xsetwacom set "$DEVICE" touch off else echo "Touch is OFF, turning ON." xsetwacom set "$DEVICE" touch on fisudo chmod +x /usr/bin/toggle_touch
You can the do
me@niobium:~$ toggle_touch Touch is ON, turning OFF. me@niobium:~$ toggle_touch Touch is OFF, turning ON
All I need to figure out now is how to get Xournal to interpret my presenter button in a way that makes it forward one slide per press, instead of half a slide.
