    Install Wizardpen driver for Iball tablet

    Hi Guys
    In this thread you will come to know how to install wizardpen drivers for your Tablets and mousepen in plain and easy steps.

    Wizardpen drivers are meant for following pen tablets. They are as following
    # Acecad Flair II GT-504
    # DigiPro 5.5×4” Graphics Tablet
    # Digital Ink Pad (A4 format)
    # G-pen
    # Genius Wizardpen
    # Genius Mousepen
    # Genius
    # iBall
    # Manhattan
    # Pentagram
    # QWare
    # Trust TB-3100
    # Trust TB-5300
    # Trust TB-6300
    # iBall Tablet PF806
    # AIPTEK HyperPen 10000 U ("UC-LOGIC TWA60")
    # Medion MD 85673 USB Grafiktablett P82012
    # Intellipen Pro(EPOS EPOS Pen Digitizer)
    # NGS Draw Master Tablet (UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U)

    1.The first step is to download the driver. You can download it from here. You can find this at the bottom of this post

    Please download this to your desktop.

    2.Extract the files in the folder by double clicking on it. You can either use Ark or Archive manager for that. Please extract these files to desktop.

    3.Retrieve the developmental packages by using the following command in the terminal. Open terminal by navigating to Applications---> tools---> Terminal
    The command is
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install xutils libx11-dev libxext-dev build-essential \
                xautomation xinput xserver-xorg-dev
    4.Type the command
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    5. Type the command
    Code:
    cd wizardpen-0.7.0-alpha2
    6.Install the driver by the following command
    Code:
    ./configure --with-xorg-module-dir=/usr/lib/xorg/modules
            make && sudo make install
    Check the integrity of the driver installation by typing the command.
    Code:
    ls /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wizardpen_drv.*
    It should give you the output as following
    Code:
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wizardpen_drv.la
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wizardpen_drv.so
    Well the first part is over.

    7. Type the following command in the terminal to know the make of the Pentablet.
    Code:
    grep -i name /proc/bus/input/devices
    Please note down the make of the tablet which you have to use in the next step.

    8.Create a new .fdi file by using the following command in terminal
    Code:
    sudo vim /etc/hal/fdi/policy/99-x11-wizardpen.fdi
    Press 'I' so that INSERT appears

    9. Paste the following template in the terminal
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
                <deviceinfo version="0.2">
                <device>
                    <!-- This MUST match with the name of your tablet obtained -->
                    <!-- in Step 2 specified previously                        -->
                    <match key="info.product" contains="NAME OF YOUR TABLET">
                    <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">wizardpen</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents" type="string">true</merge>
    
                    <!-- Modify these configuration accordingly -->
                    <!-- See CONFIGURATION OPTIONS section for the full-set of -->
                    <!-- configurable options                                  -->
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.TopX" type="string">5619</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.TopY" type="string">6554</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.BottomX" type="string">29405</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.BottomY" type="string">29671</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.MaxX" type="string">29405</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.MaxY" type="string">29671</merge>
                    </match>
                </device>
                </deviceinfo>

    Please insert the name of your tablet where i have highlighted in red. This you can do by moving the cursor in the terminal with arrow keys.
    Click Esc and type :wq and press Enter to save the file you have created.

    Reboot your machine. It should work.

    In case if it is not working(which occurs rarely), You can try by adding two more lines in the .fdi file
    For editing enter the command
    Code:
    gksudo gedit  /etc/hal/fdi/policy/99-x11-wizardpen.fdi
    The two lines of code which may help you has to be added above the line which appears as '</match>'. The code is as follows
    Code:
    <merge key="info.product" type="string">stylus</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents" type="string">true</merge>

    I acknowledge the help of Favux and give credit to him who helped me a lot to install the wizardpen driver.

    Tested and it works correctly in Karmic.

    Can I also mention that you may need to calibrate your tablet - this is done by editing the various x and y values in the .fdi document. The following calibrations are taken directly from the Ubuntu Wizardpen wiki, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TabletSetupWizardpen.

    Tablet W5540U (UC-Logic):

    Code:

    drpjkurian, that's amazing! Got my little Genius WizardPen 4x3 (WP4030U) working within a couple of minutes!

    In case someone has a same one, in 99-x11-wizardpen.fdi
    you should paste code below (this will allow you use this small tab to the max):
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
                <deviceinfo version="0.2">

                    <!-- This MUST match with the name of your tablet obtained -->
                    <!-- in Step 2 specified previously                        -->
                    <match key="info.product" contains="UC-LOGIC Tablet WP4030U">
                    <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">wizardpen</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents" type="string">true</merge>

    Hi
    Let me know whether your cursor movement is stalled in GIMP alone and working fine in all other programmes.

    Let me also have a look at .fdi file, and its location

    My tablet doesent semm to work generally ,i could only get it working with the calibrate tool.

    No programm detects movement or presure......(exept wizardpen-calibrate).

    It gets recognized as input on gimp ,inkspace and blender ,but the is no action or movement . Only it recognizes the touch of the pen and simulates a MMB click but the movement does nothing.

    Heres my .fdi file

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

    Hi overloader

    Let us go step by step from the beginning.

    First step check whether the driver is installed properly. To check this, type the command
    Code:
    ls /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wizardpen_drv.*
    It should give you following output in your terminal namely this
    Code:
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wizardpen_drv.la
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wizardpen_drv.so
    If you are getting this output then we can be sure that your driver installation is correct. If not, download the driver from my thread and install it accordingly.

    Second step: If your driver installation is fine then your problem might be lurking in your .fdi.
    Well i noticed that the name of your tablet which you have mentioned in your .fdi seems to be incomplete. To know the name of your tablet please check by using the command
    Code:
    grep -i name /proc/bus/input/devices
    The name of your tablet should match exactly what is produced from the above command. For eg my tablet is WP5540U, But the name of the tablet according to the above command was 'UC logic WP5540U'. So please check out the name of your tablet once again.

    Let me know your outcome
    Best of luck
    Dr Kurian
