4.357. xorg-x11-drv-wacom and wacomcpl

Updated xorg-x11-drv-wacom and wacomcpl packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-wacom package provides an X Window System input device driver that allows the X server to handle Wacom tablets with extended functionality.
The wacomcpl package provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for the xorg-x11-drv-wacom X input device driver.
The wacomcpl package has been upgraded to upstream version 0.10, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#713864)

Bug Fixes

With this update, the new X.Org server is now supported.
Previously, the xsetwacom(1) manual page contained a typographical error. This update corrects the typographical error.
Previously, calibration could be inaccurate when using TwinView while the orientation was set to "LeftOf". With this update, the source code is modified and calibration now works as expected.


Prior to this update, the wacomcpl utility supported only a single wacomcplrc file in the user's home directory. All the user settings were restored from this file when logging in. When various users logged into multiple machines with a different setup, a user had to update the wacomcplrc file every time. With this update, wacomcpl is modified to support host-specific wacomcplrc files. If no file exists with a hostname suffix, wacomcpl finally tries to load the wacomcplrc file without the suffix.
With this update, the eraser automatically updates to the same calibration setting as the stylus when calibrating or binding the stylus to a screen using wacomcpl.
All users of xorg-x11-drv-wacom and wacomcpl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
