Title: Wacom/Graphics Tablet settings menu on Peppermint
Post by: patrick_os on November 23, 2016, 02:43:20 am
Hello everyone!

I want to configure my Wacom graphic tablet on Peppermint just like when I was in Linux Mint. On Mint and Ubuntu there is a menu called Graphics tablet, where we can change the pressure sensitivity and the buttons. But in Peppermint I can't do that. Can this be integrated into the system?  :)

Here is the menu:

Sorry if my english is not very well, I am not a native english speaker.

Thanks a lot

See if this works...
(I haven't got a wacom tablet, so can't test it myself)

FIRST download this file:
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/109052632/python-support_1.0.15_all.deb
and double-click it to install.

Then download this file:
https://launchpad.net/~hughescih/+archive/ppa/+files/wacom-utility_1.21-3_all.deb
and double-click it to install

Then open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /usr/share/applications/wacom-utility.desktopand make it read:-
Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Wacom Control Panel
Type=Application
Exec=python /usr/share/wacom-utility/wacom_utility.py
Terminal=false
Icon=/usr/share/wacom-utility/images/generic.png
Comment=Utility to configure wacom pen tablets
Categories=GTK;Settings;HardwareSettings;GNOME;
OnlyShowIn=LXDE;Settings;GNOME;
Hidden=false
Name[en_CA]=Wacom Control Panel
Comment[en_CA]=Utility to configure wacom pen tablets
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false
SAVE the file and exit gedit.

Now (with your wacom tablet attached) go to:-
menu > Preferences > Wacom Control Panel
and see if it works ?

It opens but don't detect the wacom tablet

Hi my friend,
Can I help you in any way? I would really appreciate this function to be available in LXDE. I have a friend that needs this function too, because we want to use LXDE to have more memory available. And Peppermint is a distro that I am enjoying very much.

I keep getting

Quote
** (gnome-control-center:2910): WARNING **: Could not find settings panel "wacom"

and haven't found a way around it yet ???

[EDIT]

I'll have another crack at it tomorrow because I've just noticed the gsettings key in the install script is wrong .. dunno if putting that right will make a difference though because I already tried manually activating the key and it made no difference.

What I really need to do is look at Ubuntu Gnome and see how it all plugs together in that .. erm, so I will ::)
