Wacom calibration troubleshooting on Fedora

My colleague Madeline Peck have the same laptop that we each got late this past fall. It’s the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 6, and it is a dream computer, with integrated Wacom screen and stylus 🙂 Recently though, Madeline noticed the cursor was a bit off from where she placed the stylus on the …

A diagram in the shape of an F. We start at the bottom, with a green ball labeled "Desktop User." As we move up the stem of the F (labeled "Development"), there are two branches: (1) an orange "Web/App Developer" branch, and (2) An "IoT Developer" branch. The Web/App developer branch has 3 connected nodes. The first node is labeled, "Local container-based development." The second node is labeled "Container-based development with remote Fedora CoreOS. The third node is labeled "Container-based development on K8S-based runtime." For the IoT developer branch, there are two nodes: "Fedora IoT on device, local container-based development" and "IoT devices at scale" are the labels for those two nodes. To the left of the F-shaped diagram is a circle labeled "quay.io registry" with arrows pointing from the two branches to it (the paths of containers, perhaps.)

Language is the OS that runs our thoughts

I think in tech, it’s really important to get as much inclusive language as we can nailed down as soon as we can. One trend I’ve seen as time has gone on is that we’re abstracting on top of abstractions further and further out. If we can clean up the base it’s all built on …
