Hey, It works fine on my Motion Computing LE1600 with outZider's TabletEnabler.kext on Leopard 10.5.7, and of course, accompany your brilliant TabletMagic v2.0b16.

Hey I keep getting this weird glitch where randomly the values for the digitizer will change to values much smaller than they should be, which then readjusts the mapping.

Anyone else seen this or have any idea of a fix for this?


I see something similar with 2.0b17d2 - now I switched back to 2.0b16, to see if the problem still occurs. The effect I have is that from time to time the tablet maps a tiny part of the tablet to the whole screen.
The daemon itself reports then:
Tablet initialized.

[INFO] ISD-V4 Firmware 12.00 (TabletPC)
[PROC] Tablet Bounds: (0, 0) - (15619, 6278)
[PROC] ""

which is much less then the regular bounds of 24569 by 18429 that I have.
The only remedy I found when it happens is to kill and restart the daemon.

Here's an interesting one for you guys to chew on...

I'd like to try using my Mac OS X equipped Tablet PC as a tablet display for another system (similar to a Wacom Cintiq display) over a network connection using VNC. However, I want to preserve stuff like pressure sensitivity and such, not just the cursor movements.

To do this, I need to somehow create a virtual serial port on the external system that will be linked by software to the serial connection of the tablet digitizer on the tablet PC.

I then want to install tablet magic on the external system and have it link to the virtual serial port.

This should allow the tablet pc's digitizer to control the cursor on the external system. A VNC connection would then be made from the tablet pc to the external system so that the external machine's display is shown on the tablet PC's screen, with the cursor perfectly synced to the user's stylus. (barring a slight delay...)

Anyway, the problem is how do you create this virtual serial port?

I've been looking at stuff like MultiCom, but it only creates pseudo-terminals or links to existing physical ports on the machine (like a modem). What I need is something that can make Mac OS X see a physical port (like "/dev/cu.serial0"), but exists only as software linking to a serial port on a different machine over a network.

I have been looking at "socat", a terminal app similar to MultiCom, but I can't make heads or tails of it enough to determine if it can actually create the virtual serial port I need, or if it just creates pseudoterminals like Multicom.

Any ideas on this one?

You'll need to write an IOKit driver that exposes a serial port in /dev following the POSIX standard. Your best bet for sample code is to look at the open source Belkin F5U103 driver at http://sourceforge.n...jects/ubsa-osx/

(about tablet suddenly shrinkng area)

two days later, I can confirm that this problem doesn't happen on 2.0b16. I only get it on 2.0b17d2.

Sweet... do you know where I could find the 2.0b16 dmg?


Edit: Found it on sourceforge, will see if it solves the problem for me. Thanks

Hello, I am trying to use TM 2.0b17d2 on my Fujitsu T4310 with 10.6.2 OS. I "Enabled Digitizer" and my Tablet is recognized but nothing happens after that. I tried reinstalling the Apple16x50 kext using kext Helper (+ permission repair) and that doesn't help any. My IONAMEMATCH is "FUJ02E7". I've use TM before on my T2020 and it worked fine.

Can anybody help? Also, if anybody had any instructions/help for getting the touchscreen to operate this would be nice to. Thanks!

I've found that sometimes it's just luck. But you can try installing the original kext and then doing the process over again.

The console output isn't what you need to look at. look at this post http://www.insanelym...p...948&st=440#

Run the Terminal command I listed and check the output, it should look like the output from the C5.
If not try installing the original kext (via Kext Helper).
Restart, repair permissions.
Now go back into TabletMagic and have it attempt to initialise the digitiser.
Find the kext and remove it (just throw it on the Desktop).
Confirm that the IOMatch is correct and then install the kext via Kext Helper.
Restart, repair permissions.
Now go back to TabletMagic and see if Serial0 is active.
If it is then do a small dance and do a backup of your system. If not start at square one.

i have to copy my device id somewhere to get it works?

thanks


Are you talking about the "Enable Digitizer" button? If so it's under the TabletPC tab.
Clicking that button should make the proper modifications to the KEXT, then all you have to do is follow the steps I listed in my previous post and hopefully everything should work.

Unfortunately your digitizer is USB, and therefore not supported by TabletMagic. A USB driver is a whole different can of worms, and TabletMagic won't be expanding to support USB.

Oops, I missed that. But if it is USB you might be able to use the Wacom drivers. I know that within a few months I should have a chance to test a tablet with USB, but that won't help you now.

And Scott, is there any time frame on an update for TabletMagic? (64-bit for example?)

I'm not sure if there are actually any differences between the drivers. As far as I can tell (with the testing I've done in just using various tablets) it's the same driver, just different updates. So, any driver should do, but then again, it might not work. I'd just download the latest one.

thanks

I have no idea. I don't have a USB tablet PC and using the Wacom drivers was just a guess. You might have to do some more searching to find a way to get the drivers to recognise your tablet. You could try poking around inside the source files for the drivers and see if there is anything that will help but I'm not sure where to point you.

GETTING TABLET RECOGNIZED -- THE "-d" FIX IS GREAT!

Previously, I could only get my old Wacom UD-1212 tablet recognized by reinstalling tabletmagic every time I connected it -- pain in the butt. But I tried the described fix: adding the "-d" to the ProgramArguments section of the com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic.plist file and now it just connects, every time perfectly! Thanks!!!

HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM:
For those who don't understand how to do this, it's easier than it sounds:
  • Install TabletMagic.
  • If you're using a serial-usb adapter for your tablet, find an appropriate driver to install for that adapter (for example: I installed Keyspan drivers with "Keyspan Serial Assistant").
  • Go to the "Library" folder on your main hard drive (assuming you're running the Apple OS X operating system).
  • Inside you'll find a folder named "LaunchAgents".
  • Inside you'll find a document named "com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic.plist"
  • Click on it once, then "get info" about that file (using right click or command-i).
  • click on the lock at the bottom, authorize with your user name, then change the "privileges" to permit you to "read/write" this document.
  • Now open this file with TextEdit or other plain text editor.
  • In the middle of the document you'll see <key>ProgramArguments</key>, followed by a column of entries inside <key> tags. At the bottom of that column, add this line of text, <string>-d</string>
  • Type it exactly like I just did in plain text, so that it looks just like the lines above.
  • Save and close this document. (If you can't save, it's because you didn't change the privileges appropriately when you looked at the document information. Try again.)
  • Now, plug in your tablet and turn it on.
  • Go to System Preferences and click on the Tablet Magic control panel.
  • Click "enable" (top right). Your tablet should be found, if not click on the "automatic" find on the left (this should be unnecessary probably).
  • VOILA! Enjoy :(
Note: I am using the Wacom UD-1212 tablet currently attached to a "Hackintosh" (a dell netbook laptop that I've 'hacked' to run Mac OS X) running a wide screen flat-panel monitor, and it works beautifully! The Wacom tablet cost me $35 on ebay, the netbook cost me $190, and the keyspan serial adapter cost me $25 -- total cost for a high-def artists tablet computer setup: $250 plus the extra large monitor that I already owned. The results? As responsive and detailed as any $5,000 Cintiq tablet-plus-MacBook setup. :)
