This is bad. Because not only you'll need to allow people to set it properly - you'll also need to properly parse the sensitivity, pressure, angle and other stuff if you want ROS to be used by digital artists (like me) who work with Wacom and Genius digitizers. BTW, here's a Wine patch that adds the pressure support. Might be useful.

If you have not already done this, I would suggest that you create a Jira report for this Wine patch and select 'New Feature' or 'Improvement' at 'Issue Type', then the dev's will see it and may add it into the source tree.

They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

As he ended up creating a JIRA report I took the liberty of giving some background information about Wacom tablets and how they could be implemented in ReactOS. Also, any WINE code for this feature is totally useless, as they decided to implement it at a higher abstraction level and is just for Linux.

So, no WINE patches.
