I found this looking for the solution to the same problem (this is still happening on Xubuntu 16.04, so updating to a supported release does not solve this issue).

I had similar issues with Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 more recently. After struggling for a while, I found that disabling USB auto suspend, solved (worked around) the problem.

But I had to figure out what the inputs from the device meant. import sys,pdb import usb.core import usb.util from pymouse import PyMouse # whiteboard coordinates axis computed by checking the output against strokes white_board_x_min=(1<<8)+1 white_board_x_max=(127<<8)+255 ...
