Bug Description

Binary package hint: xournal

I'm using xournal on an hp tc4400 tablet laptop. I recently changed from gutsy to hardy. I can no longer input text from the keyboard. Nothing appears on the screen when I press the keys. Using the stylus to write on the screen still works, though. The xournal version is 0.4.1-0ubuntu1. I'm using kernel version 2.6.22-14, since with 2.5.24-17 (which installed with hardy) suspend does not not work. My graphics driver is i810.

This issue probably only happens when you use the mouse (or touchpad/trackpad) to click on a location where you want to type text (but not if you use the tablet pen to select the location where you want to type text), right?

If so: upgrade to xournal version 0.4.2.1 to fix the issue (which is actually a bug in the X server causing invalid events to be generated, but the newer xournal includes a workaround), or upgrade the X server (if the issue has been fixed in newer versions?), or, temporarily, uncheck the "Enable XInput" button in the Options menu (the price to pay being a loss of quality when you use the stylus to write on the screen).

 Thanks!

Indeed, it works with the stylus. I downloaded and compiled 0.4.2.1, and
the problem remains, however. It's not a problem for me any more,
however.
