    you're right, don't work at all, tried to use the config with xorg.conf.d...
    I try to use Option "type" "stylus"... and guess what... right, nothing happens

    Got mine working, however it still decides to mess around by the fact that after I have touched the pen to the pad, it will not register me moving it unless I move it completely off and back on again.

    Hi Zayfox,

    Great! You got your Waltop tablet "working" in Lucid following Ayuthia's instructions.

    Let's check that Wacom has your tablet by entering in a terminal:
    Code:
    xsetwacom list
    If it's blank the wacom drivers don't have it and we'll want to look at the output of the xinput command below.

    We can try a couple of things. Enter in a terminal:
    Code:
    xsetwacom set Stylus mode relative
    also try:
    Code:
    xsetwacom set Stylus TPCButton off
    But first to find out what stylus is being called enter:
    Code:
    xinput --list
    in a terminal. Then change Stylus in the above commands to the device name that is being used in quotes or use the ID number.

    I get this when I try to run the xsetwacom commands (first one is blank):
    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 143 (XInputExtension)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_SetDeviceMode)
    Serial number of failed request: 15
    Current serial number in output stream: 15

    OK, what does:
    Code:
    xinput --list
    look like?

    Alright, there it is, Waltop. My guess is Wacom isn't picking it up and so evdev is. We can look at your Xorg.0.log to check. It's in /var/log. Right click on it to compress it with Create Archive and then attach it to your post with Manage Attachments.

    Hi Zayfox,

    Unfortunately I was correct, Wacom isn't grabbing the tablet so it's defaulting to evdev, which is why it is funky. Your Xorg.0.log is clearer on that then oberonking's was, so I'm wondering if you had a problem implementing Ayuthia's "fix"?

    The Xorg dev. at the LWP just added a patch that has a bunch of Waltop ID's for xf86-input-wacom. It hasn't been comitted yet but they are clearly planning on supporting Waltops. So all that is missing is a Waltop usb kernel driver. I don't know where that stands.

    I'll have to look at what Ayuthia did to modify the wacom.ko (usb kernel driver) to support Waltop and see if there is anything else to try. Obviously I'm hoping Ayuthia will join in.

    In the meantime you can try the WizardPen driver like oberonking did: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1475433 I think the wacom drivers will be a better option once the kinks are worked out. And now you know to check Xorg.0.log to verify the WizardPen driver has your tablet.
