Can't disable Gnome wacom plugin anymore (CentOS 7.5, Gnome 3.24)

Post by lee11lee » 2018/06/19 08:18:43

Hi,

I'm using CentOS 7.5 with Gnome 3.24.

I'm trying to set my Wacom Buttons AbsWheelUp and AbsWheelDown to scroll up and down.
In the past on Gnome version 3.22 (CentOS 7.3) I could do that via:

disabling the wacom plugin (otherwise you can not map mouse actions to the pad) via:

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.gsdwacom active false
then hardcoding the two buttons via:

Code: Select all

xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos4 8x13 pad" AbsWheelDown 5
xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos4 8x13 pad" AbsWheelUp 4
Now in the new gnome version 3.25.4 the setting to disable the wacom plugin is not there. The only settings I have in the plugins folder are:

Code: Select all

$ gsettings list-children org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins
housekeeping   org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.housekeeping
power          org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power
color          org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.color
media-keys     org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys
xsettings      org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings
I also tried searching the dconf for Wacom settings, but with no results.

As I understand, there has been a major change to the wacom implementation in gnome 3.24..

How can I still set the buttons to scrolling and bypass the gnome wacom plugin?

Thank you, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

Did you find any solution to this issue with Gnome since ?
I have the same problem with AbsWheelDown 5 or 4.
How to bypass the gnome control ?
I can find nothing regarding this on the net.

Thanks

From this link : https://github.com/linuxwacom/xf86-inpu ... 3A-GNOME-3
It is said that for Gnome >= 3.24 there is no workaround because of the new architecture...

Unless they decide to work on it (I don't think they care) there will be no solution for the xsetwacom.

Maybbe uninstalling Gnome for another Desktop like cinnamon will avoid having xsetwacom conflicts ?
Just thinking.
