Hi Dscho,

this virtual Wacom tablet you refer to... is there a [free or built-in] Windows 2000/XP driver associated with it that supports either no acceleration and/or absolute positioning? If so, perhaps I can look at implementing it in QEMU in my "spare" time ;) Do you have a link to documentation and/or drivers? If the guest OS can't be easily told to not do any acceleration and/or use absolute cursor positioning rather than relative moves, it's not that helpful to have a new type of input device. I suspect a tablet driver can be easily configured this way since design people who probably use these devices want perfect precision between pointer and screen - otherwise they'd probably just use a mouse/trackball. But you can never be sure how Microsoft (or Wacom) decided to implement the Windows version of the driver.

The mouse sync solution we have in Win4Lin Pro is okay, but it's a bit slow and I'd like to do something much cleaner. Of course if I do the wacom tablet implementation, it will be open source and part of QEMU itself.
