  • Make sibling device name matching slightly more lenient. This improves support of subdevices for MobileStudio Pro and Cintiq Pro.
  • Revert to Update properties with a timer func.
    With the new input thread it was possible to send events from that thread directly, but doing that had some other undesirable consequences, like triggering a bug in the server which could make it crash. Later versions of the server caught that, and instead caused this to spew warnings to the xorg logs. Closes: #856140, #862639
  • xsetwacom: use XkbGetMap instead of XkbGetKeyboard.
    This is more robust in cases where certain keyboard description components are missing.
  • Introduce "Pressure2K" config option for incompatible software. The 0.34.0 release included commit 3e56ce44 which increased the range of pressure values that are reported to better support newer devices which have greater precision than the historical range allowed for.

Unfortunately, there appear to be some buggy applications which don't take
into account the advertised range (though GTK 2/3 and Qt 3-5 should), and
may misbehave with the new range. Until they too are fixed, this release
includes a workaround that users can enable, forcing the use of the old
pressure range.

To enable that, you'll want to add something like the following snippet to
a file in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory (see xorg.conf(5) and wacom(4)
for more details of doing that).

Section "InputClass"

Identifier "Wacom pressure compatibility"
MatchDriver "wacom"
Option "Pressure2K" "true"


Closes: #862671
