Bug Fix Advisory xorg-x11-drv-wacom and wacomcpl bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1588-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-12-06
Last updated on: 2011-12-06
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated xorg-x11-drv-wacom and wacomcpl packages that fix multiple bugs and add
various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The xorg-x11-drv-wacom package provides an X Window System input device driver
that allows the X server to handle Wacom tablets with extended functionality.

The wacomcpl package provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for the
xorg-x11-drv-wacom X input device driver.

The wacomcpl package has been upgraded to upstream version 0.10, which provides
a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#713864)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* With this update, the new X.Org server is now supported. (BZ#713769)

* Previously, the xsetwacom(1) manual page contained a typographical error. This
update corrects the typographical error. (BZ#641759)

* Previously, calibration could be inaccurate when using TwinView while the
orientation was set to "LeftOf". With this update, the source code is modified
and calibration now works as expected. (BZ#675672)

This update also adds the following enhancements:

* Prior to this update, the wacomcpl utility supported only a single wacomcplrc
file in the user's home directory. All the user settings were restored from this
file when logging in. When various users logged into multiple machines with a
different setup, a user had to update the wacomcplrc file every time. With this
update, wacomcpl is modified to support host-specific wacomcplrc files. If no
file exists with a hostname suffix, wacomcpl finally tries to load the
wacomcplrc file without the suffix. (BZ#711618)

* With this update, the eraser automatically updates to the same calibration
setting as the stylus when calibrating or binding the stylus to a screen using
wacomcpl. (BZ#711619)

All users of xorg-x11-drv-wacom and wacomcpl are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
