First forum post, woot!

I have a CF-19 mk 6 (model CF-191DW0DDM) with the dual touch / digitizer touch screen. Great for taking notes, etc., though the screen seems to have trouble with high temperatures (might debug this someday).

Anyway, I have only the one tiny stylus --- Panasonic part CF-VNP012U, I think. For ergonomics, I stuffed the thing into a larger pen body. Works well, but it's a hack and a single point of failure: if I lose the pen, no more notetaking.

So I want to buy another pen. I don't want the same kind, though: that thing is tiny. Instead, I'd like to try to purchase a reasonably sized stylus, e.g., https://www.amazon.com/Wacom-LP190K-Int ... 012WJVOVA/. The trouble is finding one that works with the digitizer screen. The touchscreen seems to be manufactured by Wacom; Debian Linux recognizes it as a "Wacom ISDv4" device with pen stylus, finger, and pen eraser input.

Any thoughts (thanks)?

Ha! Well, I did, until I fit the usual stylus into the corpse of one of those Pilot G2 pens. It's actually rather pleasant to write with now.

File comment: The stylus in a G2 shell.

I could still attach the lanyard, but, not fitting in its slot in the screen anymore, the stylus would just kinda dangle. But even if I built some kind of new slot attachment, I find the lanyard interferes with my writing, so I keep it off. As long as I don't lose the pen. So far so good...

great idea..

I think a Samsung tablet/phone stylus will technically work.
Fitting it is another issue.

Life will beat you into submission.

Hm. Maybe I'll try the Samsung pens eventually.

For now, I found a model CF-VNP016AU for about $15 on eBay; can confirm both the pen tip and single button work with the digitizer screen.
