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

    I am having trouble with the Threshold setting for my Bamboo Fun tablet in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin. The tablet works out of the box, but the threshold setting is very low and I don't seem to be able to affect it. I have installed the driver update described at the beginning of this thread.

    Here is the result of the lsmod check:
    ryan@hpdv4|12:24 PM|scripts$ lsmod | grep wacom
    wacom 46849 0

    I can use xsetwacom to set the threshold and it seems to be recognized:

    ryan@hpdv4|12:22 PM|scripts$ xsetwacom --set "Wacom BambooFun 6x8 stylus" Threshold "500"
    ryan@hpdv4|12:23 PM|scripts$ xsetwacom --get "Wacom BambooFun 6x8 stylus" Threshold
    500

    But when I go into gimp and lightly drag the stylus across the pad, it is still drawing a line.

    The Wacom settings from the Unity dashboard don't seem to have any affect either.

    I really need a higher threshold for better hand writing when I use this for my digital blackboard in my class.

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    From what you say it looks like the issue may be with Gimp. Can you confirm in Edit > Preferences > Input Devices in Configure Extended Input Devices you have the stylus set to Screen Mode and Pressure is on Axes 3?

    Do you have the Unity/Gnome Precise or say KDE Precise etc.


    Edit: Also just to be sure. You are running the xsetwacom Threshold command before starting Gimp, correct?

    The Mode was disabled. Setting it to Screen seems to have fixed my problem. I will play around a bit to make sure, but I now see a line in GIMP whose opacity varies with my pressure, which is how my brush is set up. If GIMP had defaulted to Screen, it might have all worked out of the box....


    Yes, I am running Unity/Precise (still not sure how I feel about it, but it looks pretty).

    Thanks!

    Good. Glad your set up for the class room.

    Yes it is pretty. I think I'm used to it now. I tweaked it to let me set up launchers again and I stuck Cairo Dock on the right side opposite the launcher (instead of on the bottom) and things feel pretty much back to normal. Everything seems back in "place".

    Heck maybe a improvement. Not quite sure about that yet.

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

    So, setting the mode to screen in GIMP makes pressure work and I can adjust it using the unity wacom settings applet, but my xsetwacom.sh doesn't seeem to have any effect. I am glad to have some pressure sensitivity, but would prefer the finer control of xsetwacom. Is there any way to get that working again (in Unity/Precise)?

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

    Favux,
    I've been reading your postings on this forum & the Linux Mint forum.
    I've got a couple of questions about trying to get my Bamboo Capture
    working on Linux Mint 201204 (LMDE).

    My Wacom Bamboo Capture displays 056a:00de from lsusb.
    Your posting on this forum states that it is a Generation 3 Tablet.
    Third Generation models (released October 2011):
    Bamboo Capture (Pen & Touch) stylus; touch, pad
    (CTH470; Product ID = 0xde)
    * These new models are not yet in the usb kernel driver wacom.ko. Chris Bagwell has
    kindly updated input-wacom to 0.12.0 with third generation Bamboo support. This is a
    backport of his 3.3 kernel code for the 2.6.38 and 3.0 kernels. See part I.
    Support is only available for Natty (11.04) & Oneiric (11.10) as mt.h is required.
    * For support in Lucid and Maverick see appendix 2

    *All styli have two buttons (rocker switch).
    I am running LMDE with Kernel 3.2.0-2-486. My first question is if I download and compile input-wacom-0.13.0.tar.gz, will it generate a new wacom.ko module for my 3.2.0 kernel that will allow my Third Generation Bamboo Capture to work properly? I know it will for the 2.x Kernels, and a previous post states that it will also work for 3.0 Kernels. But, will it support my latest kernel on LMDE?

    The references at http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...itle=Downloads state that Kernels above 3.0 should be downloaded from the Distribution, and that xf86-input-wacom should be used versus input-wacom.

    I also have X.Org X Server 1.11.4 on LMDE. Do I also need to compile xf86-input-wacom-0.15.0.tar.gz (the latest) to get my Bamboo Create functional?

    I've poured over the postings and studied what to do, but I am at a loss as to what is correct.

    I guess the easiest thing to do is wait for Kernel 3.3 to be released....as nothing on the LMDE Forum exactly duplicates what I am wanting to do since my Kernel is almost the latest release versus being a 2.x version.

    Thanks.

    Larry

    Hi Larry (lkraemer),

    Yeah I didn't use the best wording there on the input-wacom page did I? What I'm saying is for 2.6.37 and higher use the Distro's kernels if they work for your tablet because input-wacom changes don't necessarily get submitted upstream to the kernel. The flow is the other way, upstream kernel changes get backported to input-wacom. The original linuxwacom tarball had both the kernel and the X driver. So that is more a historical thing I'm talking about. We were worried that people would treat input-wacom like the kernel driver in linuxwacom and use it by habit instead of going with the kernel's wacom.ko like they should. Basically the message is if you want to come up with a kernel driver fix use the kernel not input-wacom. And input-wacom should only be used to provide backported support for newer tablets on older kernels. Which is your situation.

    You should be good to go as far as I know with input-wacom-0.13.0 and the 3.2 kernel. Ping just backported Dmitry's next branch into input-wacom's 2.6.38 folder on 5-23-12. So that is probably at least support to and including the 3.5 kernel. They have been talking about a new input-wacom folder for newer kernels.

    So if 0.13.0 doesn't work you can clone input-wacom instead.

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

    Favux,
    After reading, and re-reading your above Posting, I figured I had a handle on what needed to be done.
    Here are my steps to get my Bamboo Capture CTH-470 working on Linux Mint 201204 - Debian Repo Version (LMDE) Kernel 3.2.0-2-486

    Maybe it will save someone lots of time.

    COPY & PASTE commands to prevent errors!

    1. Plug in your USB Bamboo Tablet, and check what your Wacom Tablet is detected as with these commands:
    Code:
    lsusb
    lsusb -v -d 056a:00de
    dmesg | grep wacom
    ls -l /dev/input/by-path
    Verify that the wacom module is loading on startup:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/modules
    add wacom as the module to be loaded, then save the file...... Last line of the file is:
    Code:
    wacom
    Check what the Tablet is detected as and check what version X.Org X Server is:
    Code:
    xsetwacom -v --list dev
    X -version
    The possible choices for Wacom Tablets that you might have purchased are:
    Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch models

    First Generation models (released October 2009):
    Bamboo Touch touch, pad
    (CTT460; Product ID = 0xd0)
    * Touch only model should also be able to use the Synaptic driver, see X. below.
    Bamboo Pen & Touch stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH460; Product ID = 0xd1)
    Bamboo Craft stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH461; Product ID = 0xd2)
    Bamboo Fun stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH661; Product ID = 0xd3)
    Bamboo Pen stylus
    (CTL460; Product ID = 0xd4)
    * Bamboo Pen pressure levels (0xd4): still broken in Oneiric. Use input-wacom.
    Second Generation models (released October 2010):

    Bamboo Pen Medium stylus
    (CTL660/K; Product ID = 0xd5) see appendix 2 below to clone input-wacom
    Bamboo Pen & Touch stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH460/K; Product ID = 0xd6)
    Bamboo Fun Small stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH461/S; Product ID = 0xd7)
    Bamboo Comic Medium stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH661/S1; Product ID = 0xd8)
    Bamboo P & T Special Edition Small stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH461/L; Product ID = 0xdA)
    Bamboo P & T Special Edition Medium stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH661/L; Product ID = 0xdB)
    * These models are using a new 4 FGT protocol and that is causing the pointer jumps
    with Natty's 2.6.38 kernel and xf86-input-wacom. Fixed in input-wacom-0.12.1, see
    part I. Full support is only available for Natty (11.04) & Oneiric (11.10) as mt.h
    is required. For Lucid and Maverick see appendix 2.
    * Two Special Editions (0xdA & 0xdB): see the note in X. below for 3 & 4 finger
    gesture support.
    Third Generation models (released October 2011):

    Bamboo Connect (Pen) stylus
    (CTL470/K; Product ID = 0xdd)
    Bamboo Capture (Pen & Touch) stylus; touch, pad
    (CTH470; Product ID = 0xde)
    Bamboo Create stylus, eraser; touch, pad
    (CTH670; Product ID = 0xdf)
    * These new models are not yet in the usb kernel driver wacom.ko. Chris Bagwell has
    kindly updated input-wacom to 0.12.0 with third generation Bamboo support. This is a
    backport of his 3.3 kernel code for the 2.6.38 and 3.0 kernels. See part I.
    Support is only available for Natty (11.04) & Oneiric (11.10) as mt.h is required.
    * For support in Lucid and Maverick see appendix 2

    *All styli have two buttons (rocker switch).


    To compile the wacom kernel module for LMDE kernel 3.2.0-2-486 do these steps:
    REF: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...itle=Main_Page
    The reason we have to compile the new wacom.ko is that the Generation 3 Wacom Tablets aren't supported
    in the 3.2.x Kernel's until version 3.3, which hasn't been released yet....................
    NOTE: The new compiled wacom.ko will be built and placed in a Folder named /path/to/extracted/folder/input-wacom-0.13.0/2.6.38

    2. Determine the XOrg Server Version with X -version
    REF: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...itle=Main_Page
    XOrg Server-----------Download
    1.7 - CURRENT--------xf86-input-wacom
    1.4 - 1.6----------------linuxwacom

    3. Get the needed Development Software for the compile, and remove the wacom module if it's loaded.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    sudo apt-get install libX11-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libudev-dev x11proto-input-dev xserver-xorg-dev libxrandr-dev libncurses5-dev autoconf libtool
    sudo modprobe -r wacom
    REF: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1515562

    4. Download input-wacom-0.13.0.tar.gz
    ##Extract input-wacom-0.13.0 folder from the tar.gz or tar.bz2
    Code:
    tar xjvf input-wacom-0.13.0.tar.bz2
    cd input-wacom-0.13.0
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libX11-dev libxi-dev x11proto-input-dev xserver-xorg-dev libxrandr-dev libncurses5-dev autoconf libtool
    NOTE: I had to change permissions to 755 for all the files in the input-wacom-0.13.0 subdirectory so I could get the compile working.

    Code:
     
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    sudo cp ./2.6.38/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/wacom.ko
    sudo depmod -a
    Restart the computer, then Plug in the Bamboo Tablet


    After rebooting if the Bamboo Tablet is not working check if the wacom.ko is auto-loading with lsmod.
    Code:
    lsmod | grep wacom
    You should see 'wacom' along with it's size.


    If this doesn't work I'll need to clone the git repository.
    Appendix 1: HOW TO Clone the input-wacom git repository
    REF: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1515562


    5. Download the latest version from Sourceforge.net of xf86-input-wacom-0.15.0.tar.gz
    REF: http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/

    6. Compile the Software:
    NOTE: I had to change permissions to 755 for all the files in the xf86-input-wacom-0.15.0 subdirectory so
    I could get the compile working. I skipped the extraction step as it's just a repeat of the above......
    Code:
    cd /Downloads/Wacom_Driver/xf86-input-wacom-0.15.0/
    REF:  http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...86-input-wacom
    
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib        # on 32-bit install
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64      # on 64 bit install
    
    make
    
    # I needed to remove a previous version I was playing with.....:
    #sudo make uninstall
    
    sudo make install
    logout, then login


    configure x as needed.....................

    REF: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...=Configuring_X

    7. VERIFY what your Wacom Tablet is detected as with these commands:
    Code:
    lsusb
    lsusb -d 056a:00de
    dmesg | grep wacom
    ls -l /dev/input/by-path
    cat /etc/modules
    xsetwacom -v --list dev
    Reference the attached Photo's...........
    Now configure your Linux Software (and WinXP Software running in Wine) to work with the Bamboo Capture Tablet.


    Linux Software that should work with Wacom Tablets:
    1. Cellwriter
    2. Gimp
    3. Inkscape
    4. Xournal
    5. jarnal
    6. jscribble
    7. mypaint
    8. MSPaint (WinXP Ver 5.1 running in Wine 1.5.0)


    I'm runnng MSPaint (Win 5.1 Version) in Wine 1.5.0 and the Tablet works.
    NOTE: the Ubuntu Forum has a Guide/Tutorial how I got MSPaint Ver 5.1 working in Wine.
    REF: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...mspaint&page=3
    Posting #30

    The Bamboo Capture also works in Gimp, and Inkscape, after setting up the input device as per your Posting at:

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

    I'm having problems with the first part of the set up for a CTL-470/K under Ubuntu 11.10 (32-bit)

    I've run the following commands...
    cd Desktop
    wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/l...0.13.0.tar.bz2
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libx11-dev libxi-dev x11proto-input-dev xserver-xorg-dev libxrandr-dev libncurses5-dev autoconf libtool
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    uname -r
    tar xjvf input-wacom-0.13.0.tar.bz2
    cd input-wacom-0.13.0
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    sudo cp ./2.6.38/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/wacom.ko
    sudo depmod -a (then restarted)
    lsmod | grep wacom (which returned nothing at all)

    I saw no error messages from running any of the above commands. Have I missed something - or should I plough on regardless?

    By the way, the lsusb command gives...
