I'm trying to use my Wacom Graphire2 on Ubuntu 12.04. However, when the mouse gets to the edge of the tablet pad, I have to lift it relatively high off the pad to "retake." I want it to become inactive when I lift it a little bit off the pad - like a normal mouse.
Browsing "xsetwacom --list parameters", it looks like I need to set CursorProximity lower. However when I run
xsetwacom --set "Wacom Graphire2 4x5 cursor" CursorProximity 10It gives the error:
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 144 (XInputExtension) Minor opcode of failed request: 37 (X_ChangeDeviceProperty) Value in failed request: 0x181 Serial number of failed request: 18 Current serial number in output stream: 21
I found another command that appears to change the same thing:
xinput set-prop "Wacom Graphire2 4x5 cursor" --type=int "Wacom Proximity Threshold" 10
But that gives the exact same error.
The default value is 42 for Graphire; 10 for Intuos. I'm trying to set my Graphire to 10. I tried setting it to 42 (it gives the same error).
I'm sure the device name is correct:
$ xsetwacom --list devices Wacom Graphire2 4x5 stylus id: 8 type: STYLUS Wacom Graphire2 4x5 eraser id: 9 type: ERASER Wacom Graphire2 4x5 cursor id: 10 type: CURSOR
How do I disable this hovering behavior so my tablet mouse behaves like a real mouse?
