Configuring Tablet Settings¶
|Select display or desktop to map to tablet|
|Revert (a button)|
From the OSD Tablet page, you can select whether to map an attached Wacom tablet to the entire desktop or to a specific attached monitor. You can also specify whether the tablet operates in a left-handed or right-handed orientation.
The OSD Tablet page, as shown next, updates automatically to show the number of monitors and tablets that are connected to the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client. You can connect up to four monitors, but your Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client only supports two locally connected tablets at a time. When just one monitor is attached, only the Desktop icon displays on the screen, and any attached tablets are mapped to the entire desktop. By default, tablets are mapped to the entire desktop.

Changing display topology settings clears the tablet mappings
Changing topology settings on the Display Topology page (for example, after you rearrange your display setup) automatically clears the tablet mappings. You need to reconfigure your tablet setup whenever you apply topology changes. For information about configuring display topology, see Configuring Multiple Displays.
Wacom Tablet Support
Wacom tablets attached to Zero Clients support local termination when connecting to Remote Workstation Cards in Linux environments when the Remote Workstation Card software's local tablet driver feature is enabled. This driver locally renders the cursor when its movement is initiated by the tablet. This feature is useful in WAN environments to help lessen the effects of high network latency. Use the latest release of your Zero Client firmware, for the most up to date support of Wacom tablets.
It is recommended to use the latest release of Remote Workstation Card Software to maintain local cursor support on the client side, and to have the best performance in sessions with the Remote Workstation Card when the latest Wacom drivers are used. For more information see the tablet reference in the Zero Client Administrators' Guide.
Local termination for supported Wacom tablets is also supported on Windows and Linux hosts using HP Anyware.
Some PCoIP enabled thin clients also support Wacom tablets. Check with your PCoIP enabled thin client manufacturer if they support Wacom tablets with PCoIP.
The following parameters display on the OSD Tablet page:

To configure tablet settings:
- From the OSD, select Options > User Settings > Tablet.
- From the OSD Tablet page, configure the tablet settings:
- To map a tablet to a display, use the tablet’s stylus to tap the desired display icon (A, B, C, or D) on the screen, and then click Apply. The Display Mapping column will update with your selection.
- To configure the tablet for a left-handed orientation, use either a mouse or the tablet’s stylus to select the tablet’s Left-Handed Orientation check box, and then click Apply. Rotate the tablet 180° before using it. Clear the check box for a right-handed orientation.
- To revert mappings to the last applied configuration, click Revert.
- To return to the default tablet mappings (Desktop), unplug a monitor and reconnect it to the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client. Applying topology settings (see Configuring Multiple Displays) will also clear the tablet configuration and reset it to the default configuration. You need to reconfigure your tablet setup whenever you apply topology changes.
