Known Issues When Using Local Tablet Driver

This section describes some problems users may observe while using the local tablet driver.

If the tablet stylus or mouse is too close to the tablet under specific conditions, move the tablet stylus or mouse away from the tablet for it to work:

  • If the state of the Local Tablet Driver feature is changed.

  • If the Local Tablet Driver feature is enabled when the session starts.

The tablet must be configured to operate in absolute mode.

The tablet mouse operates in relative mode:

  • When a session starts.

  • When a tablet is connected to a zero client.

  • When the Local Tablet Driver feature is enabled.

    To work around this, use the xsetwacom utility to change the mode of the Pen Cursor device from Absolute to Relative and then back to Absolute. You must do this each time the tablet is connected, when a session starts, and when the Local Tablet Driver feature is enabled.

Cintiq 22HD external USB port does not work

Some external USB ports do not work

Some tablets, such as the Cintiq 22HD, include a built- in USB hub and provide a USB port for an external USB device. If a non- HID USB device is connected to the tablet USB port, the tablet and the device are bridged to the host and the zero client’s local tablet driver does not control the tablet. To work around this, do not connect non- HID USB devices to the tablet USB port.
