OK, because of that great usb usages manual, sometime tomorrow I should
really have all the info from the enumeration, meaning all the data in a
report, picked apart in my head. I understand that I'm going to need a
driver, and I have tentatively picked out a name, uta, for Usb Tablet
Absolute (it doesn't digitize relatively, it does it using absolute
numbers). OK, I can see this, but dies this mean that uta has to be able
to feed into the moused daemon? Also, in the deal of X11, I need to be
able to understand if it can (with the correct interface, and what's that
is a fine question) be placed into my xorg.conf right where I now stick my
/dev/psm0, or does it need some sort of extra input thingy (see
/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/input) to interface it?
I think maybe it might fall under the XInput description. Anyhow, what I'm
looking for is some advice for where I go once I write enough of the uta to
where it works ok with moused, what needs to come next.
Lastly, realize my final goal is to get this thing working with gimp.
Everything else is extra and sacrificeable.
