Bug Description

Binary package hint: wacom-tools

I'm running Karmic Beta (64-bit) on a Lenovo Thinkpad X200 Tablet. Currently the tablet autodetects the baudrate at 9600. This causes perceptible input lag. I've found that if I increase the baud rate to 38400, it improves the experience a lot!

This value is set in:
/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-linuxwacom.fdi
which is part of the:
xserver-xorg-input-wacom_1%3a0.8.4.1-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
binary package.

I've created an updated version that sets the WACf008 tablet to this speed, and I'll be attaching the diff shortly.

Offtopic: I'm incredibly impressed with the polish and usability of Karmic thus far, keep up the good work!

Thanks for providing this as a patch Jan, I've reworked it to apply to the source package and will be uploading it momentarily.

Good to hear you're finding the quality of the release is good; so rare for us to hear positive feedback.

  * Add patches/105_wacf008_baud_38400.patch: Baud rate for this hardware
    is autodetecting to 9600, but 38400 gives a better user experience.
