Ups, it's not in your sources. I found it in a source tree I patched. It
would still be fine if you could include the patch. Sorry for sending
you wrong information. The patch is on http://aiptektablet.sourceforge.net


Since I don't own this hardware, I am not a good person to integrate this

I'd be happy to work with someone who'd be willing to prepare a patch
applicable to Debian's XFree86 packages, or work on adding this patch via
the Debian X Strike Force Subversion repository for XFree86.



I also own a tablet that uses the aiptek driver, and would love to test this. However, the driver is present in XFree86 4.4 and Xorg, so there's not much point working on it unless the updated xserver-xfree86 would enter Sarge.

Christopher: I compiled aiptek_drv.o a while back. I never got the tablet to do anything other than make the cursor dart around in an irregular fashion, but if you want a go you can get it from <http://robots.org.uk/stuff/aiptek_drv.o>. It just needs to be dropped into "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input". If you do manage to make it work properly, please let me know how. :)
