Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So there is an app that allows me to use my Android tablet as a pen tablet. I have the app installed in my phone however I have to install the drivers for the desktop.

The instructions are here: http://rfc2822.github.io/GfxTablet/#part-1-uinput-driver
As the guide says,I downloaded the binary, used chmod a+x {filename}. However, I cannot run it.

When I double click it, nothing happens.

Can someone please help me out with this?

I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 bit

The guide tells you how to run it, namely, sudo ./networktablet. –  mikewhatever Oct 1 '13 at 16:40
@mikewhatever sudo: ./networktablet: command not found –  Little Child Oct 1 '13 at 16:43
Where is the file you've downloaded? Are you in the same folder? Make sure you are, and use ls and cd to list content and navigate. For example, if the file is on the Desktop, then cd Desktop, and then sudo ./networktablet. –  mikewhatever Oct 1 '13 at 18:54
@mikewhatever Figured out. Working now. I had to enter the exact name which was networktablet-x86_64 –  Little Child Oct 1 '13 at 19:05
