Hi,

I just bough a Bamboo Pen & Touch and would like to use kcm_tablet to configure it. I have a couple of issues though:

1) Tablet not recognized correctly. I get at the initial page:
Company: Unknown company
Tablet: <empty>
Input Devies:
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen eraser
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen stylus
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Finger pad
Running "xsetwacom list dev" I get:
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen stylus STYLUS
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen eraser ERASER
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Finger touch TOUCH
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Finger pad PAD

2) I cannot save profile. I click the button to create profile, I enter a name, but nothing happens, no profile appears in the dropdown list.

3) The Pen & Touch has a touch feature with two-figure gestures. The second tab looks not adapted to this model as the "Express keys" block is empty. Also, the P&T does not have any "Touch Strip", "Touch Ring" or "Wheel". Maybe hiding these elements?

4) In the "Edit Press Curve" window, could there be a box to try out the new curve? Personnaly I don't understand what that means, so I could experiment and get a feeling of it.

5) In the help section of "Eraser Settings", it is said:
"This allows to change the settings independent to the stylus side."
I think it should be:
"This allows to change the settings independently of the stylus side."
Actually, I'm not even sure it should be "independently" or "dependently". You want a different setting applied when using the pen then when using the eraser?

And finally, I'd like to learn KDE programming so I cloned your git repo. I could not though find out if it is possible to load the module _without_ installing it. Do you have any information on this? I don't know what to search google for. All I want to do is change some code, recompile and run from the same directory and not affect the installed version.

Thanx! :D - Jun 30 2010
