Important update: This article is obsolete because there is a new version of the app, including a uinput driver instead of the X.org input driver available here: http://rfc2822.github.com/GfxTablet/
Motivation
Recently, we have bought an Android tablet for our company. The touch-screen is pressure-sensitive and can be used with a stylus pen. While there are many apps for all kinds of use, I couldn’t find anything that allows me to use the tablet as a graphics tablet for my desktop PC.
So I have decided to make the Android tablet a “graphics tablet”. The drawing data should be transmitted via network (WiFi). Because I use Linux, my choice was to write two pieces of software:
  • an Android app that shows a canvas and sends all touch events via network to the PC
  • an input driver that receives the data via network and posts them to the operating system / graphics server.
Please note that there is no input driver for Windows, so this won’t work under Windows. I don’t use Windows and therefore don’t plan to write one, but if you are interested in doing so, please tell me.
