    Actually that probably tells us something significant. If I was smart enough to figure it out. Hmmm.

    Nope. Doesn't exist on my system then.

    Result from that, alas, is no response from the stylus at all.

    Well, you guys are Yoda to my Jar Jar Binks on this stuff!

    Hi marek_online,

    I don't think we'll get anything other than stylus until we figure out the 'hal-setup-wacom' thing. And that's probably why eraser is acting like stylus. There is no info.callout to append subdevices.

    Do you have anything in /usr/lib/hal? I just checked on my Karmic install and it looks like it is there.

    Lots of stuff in /usr/lib/hal, but nothing setup or wacom related.

    Code:
    marek@Childers:~$ ls /usr/lib/hal
    debian-setup-keyboard            hald-addon-storage        hal-storage-cleanup-all-mountpoints
    hal-acl-tool                     hald-addon-usb-csr        hal-storage-cleanup-mountpoint
    hald-addon-acpi                  hald-generate-fdi-cache   hal-storage-closetray
    hald-addon-cpufreq               hald-probe-hiddev         hal-storage-eject
    hald-addon-dell-backlight        hald-probe-ieee1394-unit  hal-storage-mount
    hald-addon-generic-backlight     hald-probe-input          hal-storage-unmount
    hald-addon-hid-ups               hald-probe-net-bluetooth  hal-system-power-pm-is-supported
    hald-addon-imac-backlight        hald-probe-pc-floppy      hal-system-power-pmu
    hald-addon-input                 hald-probe-printer        hal-system-setserial
    hald-addon-ipw-killswitch        hald-probe-serial         hal-system-smbios
    hald-addon-leds                  hald-probe-smbios         hal-system-sonypic
    hald-addon-macbook-backlight     hald-probe-storage        libgpod-callout
    hald-addon-macbookpro-backlight  hald-probe-video4linux    scripts
    hald-addon-pmu                   hald-probe-volume
    hald-addon-rfkill-killswitch     hald-runner
    That's the entire output.

    I presume that hal-setup-wacom must have gone when I purged the wacom packages in advance of compiling the driver.

    Correct. I just looked at the way that we are currently building the source and it does not look like the hal-setup-wacom portion is not being built. I am thinking that there is a configure option that is not being configured.

    To see the options the linuxwacom configure script offers enter "./configure --help | less".

    Edit: I don't seem to have it anymore either. I'm pretty sure 0.8.3-6 made it. Maybe it stopped being made with 0.8.4?

    I had to find some additional tech support -- google.

    It looks like we need to install libhal-dev:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libhal-dev
    and then rebuild (make clean, configure, etc.). It should build the hal-setup-wacom executable.

    Sorry guys, serious brain fart. I knew that. It's in the HOW TO. I warn people not to install that if they want to use xorg.conf.

    Edit: Sorry got distracted. You could try replacing the first match line:
    Code:
        <match key="input.originating_device" contains="if0">
    with the standard:
    Code:
        <match key="info.category" contains="input">
    and see if that makes a difference.
    That's what I had to do this morning to get it to work. I was supposed to post about it but... you were faster.

    I've not looked at the whole log yet but the stylus is working with your .fdi once modified. Will post the Xorg.0.log soon to show what is recognized or not.
