    Graphic Tablet working in 5 steps!!

    METHOD FOR UBUNTU 11.04:

    The old methods still working on Ubuntu 11.04 (Thanks BCtom)
    For the Waltop models (like Genius Gpen-F509) you don't need install Wizardpen driver, only connect the tablet and enjoy.

    You can know if your tablet is Waltop model with this command:

    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    In my case (Genius Gpen-F509) the MachtProduct is:

    Code:
    N: Name="         WALTOP             Tablet    "


    METHOD FOR UBUNTU 10.10: (thanks negora for the solution and doctormo for update the ppa repository)

    1. Install the Wizardpen driver from the deb package wizardpen_0.7.3-1_i386.deb or the ppa repository, you can add add the repository with this command:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/xorg-wizardpen && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wizardpen
    2. Restart and enjoy your tablet

    IMPORTANT: If your tablet don't work properly after the restart, try modifying the 70-wizardpen.conf file putting your configuration manually and report the bug:

    For Gnome users:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    For KDE users:
    Code:
    sudo kate /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    If you cannot edit this file, use this command and then try to edit again:

    Code:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
    ...and now put the info that I explain in the method for Ubuntu 10.04 in the point 2.



    METHOD FOR UBUNTU 10.04

    I've tried with another configuration for 70-wizardpen.conf and this works better.

    1. Install Wizardpen driver from sources or deb binaries (I used the deb package wizardpen_0.7.3-1_i386.deb)

    2. Type this command in the terminal to know the MachProduct info of your Pentablet:

    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    In my case the MachtProduct is:

    Code:
    N: Name="         WALTOP             Tablet    "
    3. Use the calibration tool in the terminal:

    Code:
    wizardpen-calibrate /dev/tablet-event
    4. Edit the file 70-wizardpen.conf using root privileges:

    For Gnome users:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    For KDE users:
    Code:
    sudo kate /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    So, my new 70-wizardpen.conf file for Genius G-pen F509 is:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
       MatchProduct "WALTOP|Tablet"
       Driver "wizardpen"
    #[CALIBRATION] This data was taken from wizard-calibrate tool.
            Option          "TopX"          "260"
            Option          "TopY"          "377"
            Option          "BottomX"       "17782"
            Option          "BottomY"       "10584"
    #[END CALIBRATION]
    EndSection
    And this is for Genius PenSketch 9x12.

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
       MatchProduct "Tablet|PF1209"
       Driver "wizardpen"
    #[CALIBRATION] This data was taken from wizard-calibrate tool.
       Option          "TopX"          "0"
       Option          "TopY"          "1553"
       Option          "BottomX"       "32541"
       Option          "BottomY"       "32762"
    #[END CALIBRATION]
    EndSection

    Hi ptomulto,

    Support for that new model wasn't added until the 3.4 kernel, then it will work on the evdev driver. In the meantime you will need to use either a pre-patched pre-compiled Precise 3.2 kernel or patch it yourself: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1946486

    The Genius Easy Pen i405x, if plugged in, should show:
    Code:
    0458:5010
    in the tablet line of the output of lsusb in a terminal. Which translates to:
    Vendor ID = 0458 = KYE Systems (Genius is their brand name)
    Product ID = 5010
