Re: Graphics tablet USB driver

I finished a first version of the driver. It was tricky to convert the absolute positions of the tablet to the relative needed by the mouse. New video: https://youtu.be/R2th1pdOAs0 It's already on FreeMiNT's repository, and I'll include it in the next package of the USB drivers in October I hope. I ...

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

How about some sort of adaptive polling interval? Let's say if the mouse is static polling interval is set to something large, when it's on the move it gets smaller. For other, less real-time, peripherals longer delay wouldn't be such an issue perhaps? Thank you for your suggestion. I implemented a...

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

The storage and printer drivers don't take CPU time when idle, because they don't poll . There is an exception in the storage driver, when a storage device with more than one LUN (like a card reader) is plugged there is a polling for cards hot-plugging. I already reduced the printer driver down to ...

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

Something like that? - Start with 'long' polling delay, eg. 100ms (5x less than normal, eg. about 2% CPU usage instead of 10% on ST). - If mouse position changed, reduce polling to normal 20ms. - If mouse position doesn't change after 100ms, return to polling at 100ms. The storage and printer driver...

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

I'm not a hardware guy, but can the NetUSBee (or Lightning) IRQ line be used? So that only USB reports of a mouse change may be processed.

From NetUSBee documentation: Optional IRQ (interrupt) line to speed up transfers and give more CPU time to applications.

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

From the UIP thread: I did some benchmarks, on 68000 the mouse driver takes 10% of the CPU time, while on the 68030 Falcon, it's 5%. The worse case scenario is having the mouse and keyboard drivers, in addition to usbtool.acc, on a 68000, that resulted in a 21% slowdown of the CPU. I have noticed s...

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

Ok, makes sense. Now, that leads to the question is there a way I can change it to double-click? There is no way for now. Maybe later, I will do a configuration CPX or app, allowing users to map the mouse buttons, and adjust the wheel scrolling sensitivity (this was reported by another user). What ...

Re: NetUSBee USB drivers download

Feature request for the mouse driver: My scroll wheel can be depressed for an additional button. I hear the click when I press it, so I assume the driver processes it somehow. Could it be made to simulate a double-click? That would be very helpful inside applications and file-selectors, etc. Cheers...

The mouse driver has been updated recently. I need to update the package. I've attached it, if you can try it.

As for the continued scrolling issue, I took note, I'll look at it later.

I'm working on USB driver to support current graphics tablets, such as the Wacom Intuos S, pictured in this video: https://youtu.be/_3b9iDc3XUo The tip of the stylus acts as the left mouse button when it's down on the tablet. The button on the stylus acts as the right mouse button. The pointer moves...

Send message to owner of window

In C, if I have a window handle from another app, obtained by wind_find(), and I want to send a message (WM_ARROWED in this case) to that window, how can I proceed? appl_write() needs the the app id. I cannot use appl_find() to get it because I don't know the filename. Using appl_write(0, ...) works...

Re: uip-tool

It may slow down the transfer rate, but surely not the CPU time that much? Not sure what you mean. The only way to slow down transfere rate is to eat the CPU time. Not sure what the USB driver is doing but I'd guess it hooks itself up to VBL or 200Hz timer to periodically poll USB hardware. I did s...

Surely old version wasn't that slow? ;) Also, bear in mind that if you're using USB drivers then that's at least 30% penality on uiptool performance. Not sure what's going on in the USB driver but even if you're not touching your mouse it slows the system quite badly. It would be great if that coul...

Re: USB printer driver project

Videos of printing a PDF from desktop, using the new print.ttp that I'm developing. This will give you an idea of the processing speed on the computer and on the printer.

TOS 4 and MiNT printer icons can do this already.
