Thread: Wacom Tablet Easy Setup

  1. #1

    Smile Wacom Tablet Easy Setup

    I've made a script to setup wacom-based tablet pc's like mine.
    This script may work on laptops that have wacom usb based devices.

    I've tested it on karmic 9.10. Please fell free to report bugs on other versions and distros.

    Steps:
    Download the attachment, extract and run.

    Requirements:
    A debian based distro; zenity package.

    Karmic users, please do the following before:
    wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git-repos/u.../hid/hid-ids.h
    sudo cp ./hid-ids.h /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/drivers/hid/hid-ids.h

    Known to work:
    HP TX2000 running Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.
    HP TX2000 running Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit (thanks @correaa & @goldenroad08 )

    Please try it and tell me if it works. Fell free to report bugs.

    Re: Wacom Tablet Easy Setup

    thank you very much, it works almost perfectly in my hp tx2000, ubuntu 9.10, 2.6.31-15-generic. I had to copy 10-linuxwacom.fdi manually to /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-linuxwacom.fdi and reboot.

    Re: Wacom Tablet Easy Setup

    Do you know if the script shows any error about coping this file?
    This step is done at the end of the window "Installing driver".

    Re: Wacom Tablet Easy Setup

    worked for me just fine!

    tx2000 running 9.10 32 bit with the 14 kernel i think. had to manually install the fdi logged in a root and reboot as well.

    Re: Wacom Tablet Easy Setup

    The driver build phase fails for me.

    Code:
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/robbie/Downloads/linuxwacom-0.8.4-4/src/2.6.31'
    cp -f ../2.6.27/wacom.h .
    cp -f ../2.6.28/wacom_wac.h .
    cp -f ../2.6.28/wacom_sys.c .
    cp -f ../2.6.28/wacom_wac.c .
    cp /lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/build/drivers/hid/hid-ids.h .
    cp: cannot stat `/lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/build/drivers/hid/hid-ids.h': No such file or directory
    make[2]: *** [all] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/robbie/Downloads/linuxwacom-0.8.4-4/src/2.6.31'
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/robbie/Downloads/linuxwacom-0.8.4-4/src'
    make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    DONE
    There isn't much in that directory, but hid-ids.h is certainly not there:
    Code:
    [robbie@Vermouth:/lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/build/drivers/hid]
    [0]=> ls -l
    total 20
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9344 2009-09-09 18:13 Kconfig
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1555 2009-09-09 18:13 Makefile
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2009-12-22 19:13 usbhid
    There must be some source dependency missing, but I have not figure it out yet.

    Hi Robbie Huffman,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    Please see "3) For Karmic only" in Section 1 of this linuxwacom compile and install HOW TO.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Hi, Favux, you are right!

    But since its a Karmic file, I can, but I don't know if I should include this file on the easy setup.

    I'm including this instruction on the main thread now.

    Thanks for all feedback

    Hi junalmeida,

    You are welcome. By the way nice work with the script.

    Yes, not an easy call on the hid-ids.h. You can always add it later if you think it improves the script.

    I think you'll be interested in gali98's python script at the LWP's HOWTO. Great minds think alike.
