We’ve begun re-porting graphics tablet (wacom) support back into Cinnamon. The affected packages are cinnamon-control-center, cinnamon-settings-daemon, and cinnamon itself.
As none of us has a tablet to test with, if anyone is interested, and running Mint 16 or some other distro with >= ~Gnome 3.8 they can do the following:
a) Build cinnamon-settings-daemon from git. Mint 16 users be sure to install librsvg2-dev prior to building. It’s not currently part of the debian build-deps.librsvg2-dev
b) Build cinnamon-control-center from git.
c) Build cinnamon off branch wacom instead of master. This will include the new module in cinnamon-settings (the specific commit is https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/commit/d060c40c8d51610e0f38809f9d4c881ea7efb3aa).
Currently, in -settings-daemon and -control-center, missing dependencies/versions for wacom will not break the build – the wacom plugin/module will simple be skipped. So be sure to check the build logs for Wacom support: true.
Please let us know what, if any, issues you encounter in testing.
