    Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Series Development

    ..oh but I failed to answer your followup about my graphics card, which is an nvidia 9600gt. When I gksudo nvidia-settings, I get this error:
    Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".
    To my recollection, I have not manually modified xorg.conf since installing Lucid.. so what I'm about to show you has been generated and may be offensive or disturbing to children.
    Code:

        EndSubSection
    EndSection
    Though I have read about it a bit in the past, Xinerama and TwinView still kinda confuse me. I just want to avoid having a strip of unviewable desktop space. (because of the different resolutions of my monitors)

    Hi djinnkeeper,

    OK, nvidia, which is why you have a xorg.conf. Not sure what you are asking/describing. Did you check out the thread I linked you to?

    Nvidia settings does some unnecessary things. You can remove these sections from your xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        # generated from default
        Identifier     "Mouse0"
        Driver         "mouse"
        Option         "Protocol" "auto"
        Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
        # generated from default
        Identifier     "Keyboard0"
        Driver         "kbd"
    EndSection
    along with these two lines in "ServerLayout":
    Code:
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    As always backup your current working xorg.conf and be prepared to restore it at the command line in case X is broken.

    Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Series Development

    Hello All,

    Favux suggested that I post in this thread; my question on this topic started here

    Here are the details:

    • I am running Lucid x64 using a CTH-460 (056a:00d1 lsusb version).
    • I am running the 0.8.7-2 linuxwacom kernel module and 0.10.6 Xorg module on Lucid's Xorg 1.7.
    • (I tried to use today's git of xf86-input-wacom and it complains of xorg-macros needing to be 1.8 since Lucid has 1.5)


    And the issues:

    • I cannot figure out how to get tap-to-click working.
    • When I move the cursor with my finger, it acts as if my screen has a 10x10 pixel grid across it, and the mouse is snapping to that grid. It is not a smooth motion like it is with the pen. I am using two nvidia displays at 1920x1200 for a Screen-0 size of 3840x1200.
    • I have tried to play with the TopX/Y/BottomX/Y parameters--and while I can make the mouse jumpier (larger "grid") with big values like 0,0,40000,40000--I cannot make the mouse 1-pixel smooth.


    Any idea what I might try next?

    -Eric

    sudo apt-get upgrade
    
    (Do the purge lines in Lucid?  Haven't had enough reports to know, so skip for now.)
    
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    
    tar xjvf linuxwacom-0.8.6-2.tar.bz2
    
    cd linuxwacom-0.8.6-2
    
    ./configure --enable-wacom --prefix=/usr
    
    make
    
    sudo cp ./src/2.6.30/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/wacom.ko
    
    sudo depmod -a
    
    reboot
    
    (now check if the wacom.ko is auto-loading.)
    
    lsmod | grep wacom
    So what, 12 lines (if you count changing directory into the desktop)? And thirteen if you count the check. I guess that's part of the problem, at this point it seems straightforward to me.
    Follow the above code.
    Or

    Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Series Development

    Hi Favux,

    Re-reading Section 1, I haven´t the foggiest how or why I ended up in Appendix 5.

    I understand (too well) that it is frustrating when people do not follow simple requests and end up following different/wrong instructions than indicated. I apologise for causing any frustration. Perhaps my need clouded my reading of your Section 1 as I can find nothing in it to lead me to Appendix 5.

    I will start again, hopefully nothing I did means a clean install is needed.

    Thank you for your patience.

    David

    Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Series Development

    Hi Favux,

    Re-doing Section 1, I see how I ended up in Appendix 5. In terminal, after:
    ./configure --enable-wacom --prefix=/usr
    the last message was:
    Note: this package only supports Xorg server older than 1.6.5.
    You are running a newer version.
    Please build xf86-input-wacom instead.
    You can build the kernel driver from this package though.
    I ASSumed I was supposed to do that ...

    Anyhow, after re-doing just Section 1 it works - I have not tested it extensively. So THANKS!

    David

    Hi David,

    Great!

    Ahh, I see. What happened is Ping added a Xserver check into linuxwacom 0.8.6-2 because people weren't able to compile linuxwacom anymore on Xserver 1.7 or up. That's of course because the config.in was trying to build the X driver. And linuxwacom's X driver doesn't work in 1.7 or up. So for the first time it said "Oh, I'm in Xserver 1.7 or higher and I can only make the wacom.ko not the X driver or wacomcpl". That's what the warning is telling you. Unfortunately it doesn't quite say that, you're suppose to read as above I guess by context.

    Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Series Development

    Hi Favux
    AMD64 - Wacom Bamboo CTL-460

    The more I grasp the more I realise how quickly the modules are updated even carrying the same name/number, a practise I am not used to. linuxwacom 0.8.6-2.x tells me more than always keeping the same number but I guess there is a good reason why. (I would just parse off the 0.8.6.2 if the .x did not ´matter´, so to speak).

    Now, one question if I may. CTL-460 is pen only. But my mouse is set to left-handed. I seem to be up the creek in so far as I can not work out how to get the pen to be left handed. Is this a curse I am lefty with and so must always revert to right handed for the pen? I hope this is a linuxwacom related question or do I need to post it elsewhere?

    David
    PS Thanks for all your hard work on the guide. I do agree with you that studying and understanding it is better than just copy and paste.

    Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Series Development

    Hi David,

    Right, but I think you mean linuxwacom 0.8.6-x for the format. That's the current "stable" branch and the current development branch is 0.8.7-x.

    We should be able to rotate the tablet into lefty mode using xsetwacom commands, see post #384.

    But since the tablet is pen only I'm fairly confident adding a rotate option to the 10-wacom.conf will also work. So let's try it. It's located in /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/. To edit:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-wacom.conf
    Change the usb snippet/section from:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom class"
    # WALTOP needs a patched kernel driver, that isn't in mainline lk yet,	Option "Rotate" "HALF"
    # so for now just let it fall through and be picked up by evdev instead.
    #	MatchProduct "Wacom|WALTOP|WACOM"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    to
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom class"
    # WALTOP needs a patched kernel driver, that isn't in mainline lk yet,
    # so for now just let it fall through and be picked up by evdev instead.
    #	MatchProduct "Wacom|WALTOP|WACOM"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    	Option "Rotate" "HALF"
    EndSection
    Save, Close, and reboot.
