Linux:
  • 5 ways of accessing devices
  • evdev, wacom, proprietary
  • touch enabled wacom: 3 devices in xinput
  • Qt: no distinction between stylus and finger/touch
    • -> extend proximity events to have distinction between
Windows:
  • 2 protocols
  • wintab (deprecated)
  • e-ink (now, originally hand writing)
  • drivers potentially override each other
  • lacking transformation of value ranges and rotation direction
  • wintab at least has time information in the low level event
Mac:
  • unknown
QTabletEvent:
  • does not contain button information
  • does not contain keyboard modifier
  • windows: wintab -> map button
TabletMove should also be sent with Hover – maybe as TabletProximityMove Tablets and events should have a manual test app Stylus hover: cannot read rotation, z-coordinate, use for paning/zooming Potentially used and worked around by many applications (also commercial).
