    I first tried on jaunty, but when it didn't work, tried a clean install of karmic to start from scratch. I'm running Karmic Koala 9.10 32-bit (kernel 2.6.31-16-generic) on a Dell Inspiron 530.
    At first try on Karmic, I didn't do the 40-xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules steps, but when it didn't work, I did those steps as well, editing the SYMLINK and product ID to match mine (00d4), and still no luck. Can someone please help? I'm a linux newbie, and am trying the best I can, but I'm out of ideas.

    (used linuxwacom-0.8.4-3 and wcm2patch, also installed the hid-ids.h)

    When I run wacomcpl, there is nothing detected at all.
    Hi Marika! Welcome to the Forum.

    I'm not up for much longer here (2am), but I'd think you should go to the latest thread here and try again - do steps in the first post. Then use the fdi file from here (think it's a good one still)

    The compile ('make' command) produces a lot of output but should not produce what appears to be stopped errors - usually a lot of astrics '***' and such - should be fairly noticable.
    Also, I assume you've done lshal etc to know that the tablet is detected?

    Anyway, try the other thread and see if you have any luck. It should work. I started out with your model.

    EDIT: BTW it's all test code but there is a lot of functionality working

    EDIT2: I redid my compile and here is the tail end...
    Code:
      CC      /home/kgingeri/Downloads/Sys/Wacom/linuxwacom-0.8.5-4/src/2.6.28/wacom.mod.o
      LD [M]  /home/kgingeri/Downloads/Sys/Wacom/linuxwacom-0.8.5-4/src/2.6.28/wacom.ko

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/kgingeri/Downloads/Sys/Wacom/linuxwacom-0.8.5-4'
    $
    Also, be sure to reboot after the whole process!

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    What a hell... how can this be that complicated... I thought it was
    just going to be recognized as a mouse... I don't even care about
    pressure sensitiveness. Is there a shortcut? I was unable to follow
    all this. My is the bamboo pen.

    Edit: Following the Ayuthia post I was able to get it working:

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    When I unplug and plug the device again, my custom configurations,
    done with the wacomcpl are lost. Is it possible to save the custom
    configurations?

    Thanks!

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    many many thx, i bought a bamboo pen device today and was very positive that it would just work as i used to see the wacom entries in the xorg.conf since my first linux adventures, but i got very frustrated when i realised that it didnt even get recognized.
    and again thx to kgingeri post #541 and Favux and the guy that did the patches and all the other devs.

    now to my question ,how can i deactivate the debug messages in the logs ?now that it works as every pen event gets logged to var/log/messages

    this thread u made my day.
    i ll be posting any irregularities or bugs if i find them but for now it seems very stable

    Hi tyranos,

    Welcome to Ubuntu Forums!

    Check to make sure your .fdi doesn't have debug code in it. Failing Ayuthia telling us for sure you could check to see if he used the same debug command as in the patches on the other thread. "You should be able to turn some of it off by going into src/2.6.28/wacom_wac.c and src/2.6.28/wacom_sys.c and look for":
    Code:
    #define DEBUG 1
    If it's there comment it out like so:
    Code:
    /* #define DEBUG 1 */
    And then recompile. From: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...321238&page=65

    Hope this helps.

    Hi leandromartinez98,

    To answer your first post, yes, it is a bit complex, but you only see the surface. Eventually everything will auto install. For now it is very much under construction. You can go to this thread and use a prepatched download - it saves a few steps, but you'll have to become a bit of a hacker if you want a working tablet now

    As for saving settings: yes you can. It is done by creating a .xinit file in your home directory...
    Code:
    $ gedit ~/.xinitrc
    ...and putting the xsetwacom commands in that file. That'll take care of booting and when the X window system starts. Subsequence calls would have to be run as
    Code:
    $ ~/.xinitrc
    ...to reset all your custom settings. There's a post about it in one of the two threads, you may have to search for it. I can find it right now.

    EDIT2: Found it - here #629 - file name is ".xinitrc" - changed it above

    i couldn't find any #define DEBUG in the src dir but what i found are printk()'s in the function below in /src/2.6.28/wacom_wac.c
    Code:
    static int wacom_bamboo_pt_irq(struct wacom_wac *wacom, void *wcombo)
    so i commented out these lines like this
    Code:
    //    printk ("[wacom-%d] data: ", PATCH);
    //        printk(" %d:%x", index, (int)data[index]); 
    //    printk("\n");
    //              printk("[wacom-%d]: reporting as eraser\n", PATCH);
    //              printk("wacom-%d]: 0x80 detected as tool %x and id %x\n",
    //                      PATCH, wacom->tool[0], wacom->id[0]);
    //             printk("[wacom-%d]: reporting as pen\n", PATCH);
    //      printk("[wacom-%d]: X=%d Y=%d pressure: %d d6: %x d7: %x\n", PATCH, x, y, pressure, data[6], data[7]);
    //      printk("[wacom-%d]: reset tool %x\n", PATCH, wacom->tool[0]);
    //     printk("[wacom-%d]: skipping over data[1] %x\n", PATCH, data[1]);
    rebuilt and it no more debug info for me now

    i created a patch to wacom_wac.c for no debug info for the jaunty kernel and uploaded it along with the wcm2 patches linked in kgingeri post #541

    i assume to remove the debug info for the Bamboo pen
    use
    Code:
    patch -p1 < wacom_wac.c.noDBG.patch
    instead of
    Code:
    patch -p1 < wacom_wac.c.patch
    and again thanks to all who helped.

    Hi tyranos,

    Great, nice job! It looks like we now have everything needed for a fully functioning Bamboo Pen.

    I hope wacom4linux starts work on the 2.6.32 kernel(which I am currently running) It works fine in my .31 =)
