Did not metion the model. I have a Bamboo Model MTE-450A
(note: mine is usb not serial connection)
The following is what I manualy had to add to
my xorg.conf file:

under this section "ServerLayout" add the following:

Section "ServerLayout"
InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "pad" # no core events
EndSection


then add the following sections:


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "stylus"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "eraser"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
Option "Type" "eraser"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "cursor"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
Option "Type" "cursor"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "pad"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
Option "Type" "pad"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection


I hope this gives a starting point...

I'm not entirely sure what "version" of Debian you'd say I was running
- it's a bit a of a Heinz 57 (stable, *testing*, unstable, volatile,
experimental) - but that blog gave me enough pointers to get it working
here a number of months ago.

It's taken me a while to get back to this.

That blog mentions wacom-tools. I can't even install wacom-tools,
because the current version in squeeze (and sid) conflictw with the
current version of xserver-xorg-input-wacom

Seems like a versioning problem in Debian.

It's taken me a while to find the time to get back to this -- but I find
I don't have a /dev/input/wacom on my system, even when I plug in the
bamboo, whether at boot time or later. By the way, it's a USB device, so
I expect things to be a bit dynamic.

And from the tests described in http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/
index.php/howto/main, I suspect the hardware isn't being recognised by
amy driver, let alone the wacom kernel module, even if I modprobe it. Of
course, I can only do that after boot time...

I can't even install the current Debian squeeze package of wacom-tools,
because it conflicts with the current Debian squeeze package for xserver-
xorg-input-wacom. It doesn't help to look at sid; those packages are the
same, so it looks as if waiting a few days for the pipeline to clear
isn't going to remedy the situation.
