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

    it didn't work and before editing,the script wasn't neither in the autostart process

    if it can be helpful i can post the commands you asked me earlier from the working user (in that profile there isn't any xsetwacom script)

    also i'm wondering if this pacckage can mess up things: kde-config-tablet (wich is a gui for editing options under kde system settings, i installed it a week ago i think,but i can't tell if these problem went after since mypaint still gets the pen input right)

    I believe you have found it. My guess is it is most likely the problem. I'm not familiar with it under the name kde-config-tablet, is it?: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php...content=114856

    yes is that one
    so uninstalling it should solve the problem,but it's strange that in the other profile i didn't affected the tablet behavior

    i try and report back

    edit: Cool!now everything is working right!! Thank you so much for helping out! you deserve a gold statue Favux!

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

    Dear,

    sorry for the repetition (maybe other users had my same problem), but still I can't make my Bamboo P&T work properly; in particular, it is because I am left-handed. I tried all of your suggestions in the first post of this thread, but still the arrow responds as I was right-handed.

    Attachments: my configuration files.

    Thank you and congratulations for your great work with this thread!

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

    Hi michele,

    Are you in Lucid or Maverick? What video chipset do you have?
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep VGA
    If you have Nvidia or ATI are you using the proprietary driver?

    Can you show me the rotation commands you are using?

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

    Currently I'm in Lucid.
    My GPU is an nVidia GeForce GT 330M (1 Gb).
    I changed the IDs as shown in my xinput --list, both in .xsetwacom.sh and .toggle-touch.sh. They were different from the ones shown in your instructions; don't know if I did the right thing.

    The main problems are:

    - Right-handed behaviour of the Bamboo P&T (while I added HALF, as you indicate);
    - Can't understand how I could customize the four buttons;
    - Entering ctrl+t I can see the popup message saying Bamboo P&T touch ON, but the next time I will read again the same message -Bamboo P&T touch ON- instead of Bamboo P&T touch OFF.

    Here are some futher infos. Many thanks for your support!

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

    Yes, that was the right thing to do. As a matter of fact that's what I was concentrating on when I looked at your files before, making sure you used your ID #'s, and I missed your rotation lines. Sorry. Didn't mean to make you post the script twice.

    The ID numbers can change if you are hot plugging usb devices including the tablet. If you're doing that use the "Device names" instead. You can check if that is happening by repeating 'xinput --list'.
    Entering ctrl+t I can see the popup message saying Bamboo P&T touch ON, but the next time I will read again the same message -Bamboo P&T touch ON- instead of Bamboo P&T touch OFF.
    That's indicating to me that the xsetwacom commands aren't working there either.

    Right now my guess is something went wrong when you cloned the xf86-input-wacom git repository (unless you're hot plugging). Either you missed some dependencies in the dependency line or the xsetwacom install got garbled somehow for whatever reason. I'd repeat step II. before we do anything else.

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

    I repeated your .II step and did some other attempts. Finally I understood better how xsetwacom.sh and toggle-touch.sh work, but still I can't make my Bamboo to work properly.

    The main problem is always with left-hand: the cursor doesn't rotate properly. Also only button 2 and button 3 work (left-clic and right-clic), and the ctrl+t function doesn't appear to work...



    I replaced IDs with Device_Names, as following:

    Code:
    ....
    xsetwacom set Wacom_BambooFun_2FG_4x5_Pen_stylus Button3 "2"  # middle mouse click
    xsetwacom set Wacom_BambooFun_2FG_4x5_Pen_stylus rotate "HALF" 
    
    xsetwacom set Wacom_BambooFun_2FG_4x5_Pen_eraser Suppress "2"  # data trimmed, 0-100
    xsetwacom set Wacom_BambooFun_2FG_4x5_Pen_eraser RawSample "20"  #default is 4
    xsetwacom set Wacom_BambooFun_2FG_4x5_Pen_eraser ClickForce "6"  # 1-21
    ....
    What could I quote also to you, to make you understand better?

    Thanks!!

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

    For your information, Stefan Bader has uploaded some backports input modules for Maverick that will be in the official repositories and use the Wacom driver that is in the current "linux-next" kernel (which will be 2.6.37).

    In the meantime, you may test them here : http://people.canonical.com/~smb/lp527912/

    You may read the whole thread on Launchpad : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...om/+bug/527912

    My Bamboo P&T (CTH 661) works perfectly this way (only the stylus though, but I don't need the touch ATM). It is good because, it means it will be easy to install (just by adding the backports modules in synpatic) and will work out of the box in the next Ubuntu...

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

    Hi torturedutopian,

    For your information, Stefan Bader has uploaded some backports input modules for Maverick that will be in the official repositories and use the Wacom driver that is in the current "linux-next" kernel (which will be 2.6.37).
    That's not what the bug report says. It says "won't fix". It's looking like the chances of an official fix to Lucid or Maverick are slim to none at this point.

    I'm appalled by the lack of knowledge displayed on that launchpad thread. The Bamboo P&T drivers were developed to a large part on this forum in two "development" threads by Ayuthia and obe1knobe. I helped and personally sent the patch sets to the LWP. Starting at about linuxwacom 0.8.5-8 the LWP started incorporating them. They were refined and worked on by Ping and Chris and have become pretty good at this point.

    As I understand it the problem is with the kernel maintainer in charge of the part of the kernel wacom.ko is in. I could look up the posts, but don't feel like it. He has refused updates to wacom.ko that contain the Bamboo P&T code. This is because it doesn't follow the new multitouch specifications, since the code was done before those specifications came out. So the wacom dev. has been including kernel updates (wacom.ko updates) in linuxwacom releases, but they aren't reflected in the kernel. This is the problem.

    This is schizophrenic since the person who wrote the specification was Peter Hutterer. He also happens to be in charge of the xf86-input-wacom project, and has had no problem incorporating the Bamboo code, with the caveat that it is only to be temporary. He wants the same code for all drivers, not different code for each driver.

    Super! So now they're rewriting the kernel code to comply with the new multitouch specification. A test case for the Bamboo Touch has already been submitted to the kernel. Meanwhile the Wacom developer in charge of kernel code has been away on a contract for the last four weeks or so. You should know that they are talking of basing the Bamboo's touch function on the Synaptic drivers, if not actually using them. This means the tablet buttons will suddenly stop functioning like every other wacom tablet button. What they plan to do about that who knows? Remember this is the same crew who dropped wacomcpl, wacdump, and xidump (over the Wacom dev.s objections). The comment I got was maybe the lack of tablet buttons would motivate someone to finally write a user land configuration program (i.e. a new and improved wacomcpl). Since all this belongs client side, not in a driver. Oh, but it should use gnome notification daemon, follow the gnome spec.s, etc. Oh yeah, and there should be a separate version for KDE. Great!

    OK, rant over for now.
