Fujitsu StylisticLT...the ancient one!!!!;D
May 30th, 2009, 9:27pm
 
Hello!
I'm looking for an answer to my fpit woes and maybe it can be found here.  Grin
 
Originally, back in 2001 I believe, when I first got my tablet I found the fpit driver from here.  Now years later I was forced to upgrade my distro.  I was using slackware 10.1 and the fpit from linuxslate ran great!  I was amazed at how easy it was setup and how smootly it ran.  After a dd backup of my disk I blanked it and installed the latest slackware distro, 12.2 at this time.  A couple of funny things I've noticed.
1, I cant seem to load the old fpit_drv.o for some reason
2, an xorg version of fpit exists now....wth...how much more confusing....
3, the xorg version barely works....
 
The new module loads....but it sucks.  The cursor flys around the screen out of control.  So I'm looking for any StylisticLT help i can get.  I originally got my slack10 distro using a guide found at http://www.neurath.org/stylistic_lt_c500/  However I'm thinking the old source code that the original module was built from is needed to try to build a module for this kernel version.  I'm sure thats biting off much more than i can chew but...I'm not sure what to do.  Quite confounded at this point.  Any ideas?

It is unlikely that this will help, but...
 
Really erratic, random cursor movement is usually caused by the wrong bit rate.
 
It's actually a really good sign, however.  It means the module is loaded, and that you've got the right serial port, just not the right serial port speed, or the driver you loaded is simply not compatible with that model tablet.
 
Try setting the baud rate in the x config file, or with the setserial command.

woot a reply!  thanks for the idea, but i am using set serial to give it the proper baud rate that was working on my previous install.  i did notice something funny tho.  when i specify the baud rate in the xorg.conf the cursor doesn't move at all.  my previous system was set up with a baud rate of 115200.  i have set serial specify it during boot up, but when i add it to the xorg.conf bad things happen.   Tongue

oh wait!  i figured something out!!!!  Grin
 
i had to add in my xorg.conf
 
option "Vmin" "1"
option "Vtime" 1"
 
 
after looking at the Xorg logs on my backup image i found that they were coming in with a value of 1.  where as on my new install they were coming in at 10!!!  once i fixed that the mouse stopped jumping around... now for the calibration xD
 
thanks for the stimuli.  you got me looking at it again Happy
