Hi Derek,

Sorry about the typo, I did mean 1 not 2.

Several things could be happening. If you installed a dkms for wacom.ko it will over ride your new compiled input-wacom.ko. Also I don't know if the back port wacom.ko in /lib/modules/2.6.35-27-generic/updates/input/wacom.ko will do something similar.

Another thing is you have to have xserver-xorg-input-all installed. Check on that. Since Karmic there is a dependency with xserver-xorg-input-wacom and removing one removes the other and installing one installs the other. So if they both weren't installed when you compiled xf86-input-wacom (right over the old version), xf86-input-wacom won't work.
