Default Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch

Hello,

I have a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch (CTH-460) but I am unable to get the
device working on Squeeze stable (6.0.1, AMD64).

I also followed the instructions provided here
http://lik.noblogs.org/post/2010/05/07/wacom-debian/ except for using
version 0.8.8-11 of the linuxwacom driver.

Any ideas?

Here is the output of dmesg:

[ 4885.083982] usb 5-1: USB disconnect, address 9
[ 4931.764137] usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and

$ sudo modprobe wacom

[ 5014.058418] usbcore: registered new interface driver wacom
[ 5014.058437] wacom: v1.52-pc-0.4:USB Wacom tablet driver


Thanks,
Matthew

I had similar problems, and I switched to a newer kernel available in
sid (2.6.38-1-amd64). If you are wary of pulling in a new kernel, you
could choose to build it from source using kernel-package.

No, that's wrong too. Now there's a race condition between the rm and
the mv. Hmm, I need more coffee.

Hi,

here (same specs) it works fine with the driver above *and*
xf86-input-wacom-0.11.0

Build with "checkinstall" to a package named
"xserver-xorg-input-wacom-custom" (*.deb).

checkinstall asks for package name and things like "provides",
"conflicts", "replaces". The latter options I set to
"xserver-xorg-input-wacom".

http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/


Changes in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "stylus"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom" # USB ONLY
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "USB" "on" # USB ONLY
Option "KeepShape" "on" # Monitor is 4:3
EndSection

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

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen" 0 0
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "stylus"
InputDevice "eraser"
EndSection


"xsetwacom" for tuning:

$ xsetwacom list
stylus id: 6 type: STYLUS
eraser id: 7 type: ERASER
Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5 Pen stylus id: 13 type: STYLUS
Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5 Pen eraser id: 19 type: ERASER

Used settings:

$ xsetwacom set 13 Touch off # I don't use it
$ xsetwacom set 7 Area 2000 28 14133 9128 # centering for monitor 4:3
$ xsetwacom set 6 Area 2000 28 14133 9128
$ xsetwacom set 13 Area 2000 28 14133 9128
$ xsetwacom set 19 Area 2000 28 14133 9128
