    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Alright, so i reinstalled, rebooted, and its still just as bad.

    I checked out my 10-wacom.conf and it seems a bit different than the one posted:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom class"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom serial class"
    	MatchProduct "Serial Wacom Tablet"
    	Driver "wacom"
    	Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    EndSection
    
    # N-Trig Duosense Electromagnetic Digitizer
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom N-Trig class"
    	MatchProduct "HID 1b96:0001"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    Just wondering if it checks out ok

    I just tried using my stylus and I found that whenever I tap, Firefox opens a new tab so for somereason the buttons on the tablet are being mapped to my stylus D:

    Hi Robert and Tictoon,

    Let's try adding a new snippet to the 10-wacom.conf:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom class"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom ignore mouse dev"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
    	Option "Ignore" "yes"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom serial class"
    	MatchProduct "Serial Wacom Tablet"
    	Driver "wacom"
    	Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    EndSection
    
    # N-Trig Duosense Electromagnetic Digitizer
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "Wacom N-Trig class"
    	MatchProduct "HID 1b96:0001"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    Tictoon what you have is the default 10-wacom.conf for Lucid and what I show is the updated one. But they are functionally equivalent for usb tablets.
    I just tried using my stylus and I found that whenever I tap, Firefox opens a new tab so for some reason the buttons on the tablet are being mapped to my stylus
    I don't understand what you are saying.

    Favux,
    sounds like Tictoon has the same problem where the id #s of the script have been bumped by the mouse and now, what used to be the pad (button) mapping has become the pen (stylus) id # so where an express button action was say, 'open new tab', now the stylus tap is 'open new tab'.

    Hopefully your new snippet will restore order.
    I am off to try it now.......

    Reporting...your mod to /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-wacom.conf seems to have made gestures a tad more responsive and consistent.
    Cursor movement is still on the slow side and locks-up when moved quickly so no change there.
    Hot plugging is still problematic, ie no change.

    If I boot with wacom attached then
    Code:
    xinput --list
    returns

    If I change the xsetwacom script #s it will still always be wrong for one event, either when booted with or booted without the wacom.
    So hotplugging does not work ?

    Hi Robert,

    Well finally some minor progress at least.

    In your situation you should not be using ID numbers in the script. Instead use the "Device name" with the quotes, as in:
    Code:
    "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Pen stylus"
    That way hot plugging will work for you.

    What do you have RawSample set at?

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    will try that now,(edit worked! thanks.)
    Here is amended xsetwacom.
    Rawsample only applied to Pen and Eraser ?? correct ?

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Hi Robert,

    Sure, enter in a terminal:
    Code:
    xsetwacom --get touch RawSample
    to get the current setting, using device name or ID for touch of course. Then play around with it a little. With the stylus/eraser I used 20 to minimize some lag I was getting in Gimp with the default being 4. I'm not sure what it is for touch, 2?

    Also notice I changed a line in the new snippet. I doubt it will functionally change it but I gather that is the more "correct" way of doing things.

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Code:
    xsetwacom --get touch RawSample
    default is 2, and any change away from that makes the cursor less responsive here.

    Tried
    xsetwacom --get touch Capacity
    which I thought was hard coded but what the heck, let's experiment Dr !

    Surprisingly, altering capacity (-1 to 5) affects cursor performance.
    Unfortunately it is all for the worse !.

    Looking through
    Code:
    man wacom
    I may have exhausted all possible parameters that can be manipulated

    Have adjusted snippet, no change, as you expected.

    Thanks for the continued suggestions,
    Bob.

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Hey Favux,

    Thank you very mucho for this post. I've been able to get both the kernel and x driver installed, after couple days of frustration fighting with the linuxwacom instructions by myself.

    Two questions though.

    1. I'm trying to do some work with the output coordinates but cannot get wacdump to wok: when i enter ./configure while in the linuxwacom-0.8.8-8 folder in the terminal it gives me:

    BUILD OPTIONS:
    wacom.o - no
    wacdump - no
    xidump - no
    libwacomcfg - no
    libwacomxi - no
    xsetwacom - no
    wacomxrrd - no
    hid.o - no
    wacom_drv.so - no /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input
    wacom_drv.o - no
    wacom*_drv quirks - IsXExtensionPointer key-events dixScreenOrigins


    Even though wacdump is supposed to be built by default. I also tried ./configure --enable-wacdump . No cigar.
    I tried manually moving the wacdump file found in linuxwacom-0.8.8-8/prebuilt/32 to usr/local/bin and access it in the terminal from there. However the output it gives me is blank when i execute ./wacdump /dev/input/event0
    Any advise would be greatly appreciated. XD

    2. This is more of a question of understanding. If the tablet works (pointer on screen follows actions of the pen), what is the purpose of the X driver?

    Much thanks in advance,
    Leo

    Hi LeoQu,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    Taking the last question first. In Lucid the usb kernel driver wacom.ko (from linuxwacom) takes the raw usb input data from the tablet and passes it along to the X driver wacom_drv.so (from xf86-input-wacom) which then works with the Xserver (X windowing system). The X driver from Xorg's xf86-input-wacom is the only one that works on Xservers 1.7 and higher. The wacom_drv.so from linuxwacom only works on Xservers 1.6 and lower.

    Wacdump and xidump are part of linuxwacom so they aren't built on Xservers 1.7 or higher (Lucid). I have seen a couple people report being able to use the pre-built xidump in the linuxwacom source code, but it doesn't work for me. Besides, wacdump doesn't work when X is running, because wacom_drv.so is grabbing all the input data. You would have to stop X.

    You may/should be able to use xinput. Enter in a terminal 'man xinput' and you'll see the test and data routine formats. It should already be installed or available through Synaptic Package Manager. And of course to get the device names you use 'xinput --list'. Or see: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/app/xinput/.

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Hi,
    I installed a month ago my new Pen and Touch tablet with the tuto from this post. It works fine. But since a couple of days, nothing work. I know it's related to kernel update (2.6.32.24), because rebooting on 2.6.32.23 make my tablet working.
    I didn't really understand what and how exactly was installed, so I have no clue of what I should do. Do I have to try a reinstall?
    Thanks
    Mel
