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

    Now I have got and installed xf86-input-wacom-0.17.0 as in step IIa and that seemed to work fine, I don't need to do steps IIb and c now, do I?
    gcc is at 4.4.5.

    "xsetwacom --list devices" is still empty. Am I missing something?

    Good. At least it compiled.

    Do you see anything in?
    Code:
    xinput list
    If not I'm going to guess your Debian release (cat /etc/issue) has the same hybrid X Server Lucid has (1.7/1.8 ). Which means the xorg.conf.d is in a non-standard location and you can't put a xorg.conf.d in /etc/X11 for user custom .conf files. If so xf86-input-wacom would not have installed the 50-wacom.conf because the expected directory isn't there.

    Check if you see a xorg.conf.d directory in /usr/lib/X11 or in /usr/share/X11. If at the first location you have the hybrid and likely just need to install a 10-wacom.conf in there. This is explained in part III. of the HOW TO. You can get the current wacom.conf at xf86-input-wacom/conf/50-wacom.conf

    It doesn't appear in "xinput list" either.
    But I will try what you suggested, this will take some time, I guess.

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

    I now created a /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-wacom.conf out of the 50-wacom.conf
    Also, I made a xorg.conf in /etc/X11

    xinput doesn't list the tablet, and there's still no "wacom" folder in /dev/input/event

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

    I'm confused. Was the xorg.conf.d located in /usr/lib/X11? If you have the hybrid, at least in Ubuntu, creating an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d breaks X.

    What do you see with?
    Code:
    xsetwacom -V

    Haha, yes... I'm confused, too.

    Code:
    a@coffeeofdoom:~$ xsetwacom -V
    0.17.0
    edit: I removed that xorg.conf, it didn't do anything.

    Okay. It looks like 0.17.0 was succesfully installed. So now we turn our attention back to the wacom.ko from input-wacom. Can you confirm a wacom.ko was compiled in your input-wacom's 2.6.30 folder? And that the wacom.ko copied into place has the same date as the compiled one? Did you happen to install a wacom.ko dkms earlier? If so from where?

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

    It was the same date, yes.
    But I compiled it again to make sure, and somehow, it suddenly works now...
    Now I can die happily.

    The pressure sensitivity doesn't work yet, but touch and all the buttons work.
    I'll set it up further tomorrow.

    Well, thank you so very much for helping, I'm so happy it finally works.

    Nice work.

    You've probably already discovered this but to get pressure in Gimp, Inkscape and some others you need to do extra configuration. In Gimp go to Edit > Preferences > Input Devices > Configure Extended Input Device > Device drop down and select stylus and in the Mode drop down select Screen. Do the same for eraser. Inkscape is similar.
