SubjectRe: [Linuxwacom-devel] [PATCH 06/15] Input - wacom: install LED/OLED sysfs files in the HID device instead of USB

Hi Bejnamin,
If you get the green light to break the user space we might as well
think about getting it in line with led/oled over bluetooth (intuos4
wireless) or the other way around.

The biggest user of led/oled functionality is gnome and there are also
a few small projects that would stop working after that change. I can
fix i4oled project easily, i4oled-gui is based on gnome handling oleds.

Patching those 2 should be enough to fix gnome:
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-settings-daemon/tree/plugins/wacom/gsd-wacom-led-helper.c
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-settings-daemon/tree/plugins/wacom/gsd-wacom-oled-helper.c

Regards,
Przemo Firszt
