|WacomProxy is a Linux kernel module
that I had to make when I was having problem using my newly purchased
Wacom tablet with my laptop. My main problems was that it was a
requirement to have the tablet connected when X started, and
hibernating the computer quite often resulted in a kernel oops.
The idea with the kernel module is to provide the X-server with a
device that will always be available, no matter if the Wacom tablet is
connected or not. That way the X-server is fooled to think the tablet
is connected and that way it will never need to re-open the tablet
device when it is disconnected/connected.
Many thanks to the LinuxWacom Project where I
originally posted my ideas and attempts to get it working the first
time. Parts of the code in the kernel module also comes from this
project as I want to be able to easily update the support for new
tablet models that can be used to define what model(s) the wacomproxy
devices should emulate.
