I've searched beforehand and the only suggestion I've found is this one but it doesn't work, at least not on my system (Ubuntu Unity 14.04 x64).
I need to disable the touch on my WACOM Bamboo Manga CTH-470 tablet so only the pen tip and eraser are recognized and not my hand when I accidentally touch it.
I know of this temporary solution:
to list the output of the tablet (example)
inoki@innerdistance-Satellite-L650:~$ xsetwacom --list
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen stylus id: 11 type: STYLUS
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger touch id: 12 type: TOUCH
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen eraser id: 16 type: ERASER
Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger pad id: 17 type: PAD
xsetwacom --set # touch off
inoki@innerdistance-Satellite-L650:~$ xsetwacom --list | grep TOUCH | cut -d ' ' -f 8
has shown only the "TOUCH" word exactly as above.
I need to make it permanent, so I don't have to insert the command every time I want to work with my tablet.
