Description Thiago Sueto 2020-09-16 03:24:09 UTC
Basically what is said on title: Mouse Mark and Mouse Click animations don't activate with Wacom tablet. They work fine with mouse and touchpad.
Mouse mark isn't particularly useful, but mouse click animations are useful for presentations, lessons and video recording, for instance.

1. Enable Mouse Mark and Mouse Click Animation
2. Bind a keyboard shortcut for them
3. Attempt to use both effects with tablet

Mouse mark can't scribble on screen.
Mouse click animation does nothing.

Mouse mark scribbles on screen.
Mouse click animation works and show touches on screen.

Note: on Xorg both effects work perfectly, similarly to mouse and touchpad.
Comment 2 Aleix Pol 2022-01-19 15:38:08 UTC
EffectsFilter (in input.cpp) is not taking tablet events into account. Confirming.
