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

    'Now we are cooking with gas' (obscure New Zealand-ish for 'Smokin !' (almost hot)

    Poor touch now much improved !.


    If I run
    Code:
    xsetwacom get 11 suppress
    This returns 4

    From
    Code:
    man wacom
    the default for all is 2.

    so i added a line to your script.....xsetwacom set 11 Suppress "1"
    (Experimented unsuccessfully with , 2, .5, 0 )
    Warning Warning Will Robinson: TOO LOW AND THINGS (such as X) BECOME UNSTABLE.

    Now I have much better movement parameters.

    ## touch = ID 11 = "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Finger"
    xsetwacom set 11 Touch "on"
    xsetwacom set 11 Gesture "off"
    xsetwacom set 11 Suppress "1"
    # 1FG dbl. tap is left click, 2FG dbl. tap is right click
    xsetwacom set 11 ZoomDistance "50" # default is 50
    xsetwacom set 11 ScrollDistance "20" # default is 20
    xsetwacom set 11 TapTime "250" # 2FG R click, default is 250 ms

    note that 11 is My id for finger/touch YMMV

    will report with more results from the next round of experiments.
    Cheers all.
    Bob.


    @Favux... could you post the output of...
    Code:
    xsetwacom get 11 suppress
    Code:
    xsetwacom get 11 capacity
    Code:
    xsetwacom get 11 speed
    Code:
    xsetwacom get 11 cursorprox

    Hi Robert,

    Your dmesg output puzzles me a little. Here's mine:
    Code:
    ~$ dmesg | grep [Ww]acom
    [   15.863453] input: Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0b.1/usb3/3-1/3-1:1.0/input/input4

    [   15.930524] wacom: v1.52-pc-0.3:USB Wacom tablet driver
    and

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2010-07-02 00:06 platform-i8042-serio-1-mouse -> ../mouse3
    RE your questions:
    Code:
    ~$ xsetwacom get 11 suppress
    4
    Code:
    ~$ xsetwacom get 11 capacity
    -1
    Capacity never worked right due to hardware issues so now it's hardcoded in and you can't change it anymore.
    Code:
    ~$ xsetwacom get 11 speed
    Unknown parameter name 'speed'.
    SpeedLevel only applies to the Wacom tablet mouse (cursor) as far as I know.
    Code:
    ~$ xsetwacom get 11 cursorprox
    42
    Same would apply, I think.

    Yes, looks like my tablet isn't being registered.
    Just tried unplugging and replugging but dmesg stays the same and the configuration reverts so none of the script settings apply.

    Tried another usb socket and all the id numbers changed.Went back to the original usb socket and the id's were restored.

    Went to the script and tried to run it in a terminal for some output but it flashes up for a moment then is gone, though it does work and is applied.

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

    Wow.

    After a lot of messing around I think I managed to replicate the problems with touch you are describing. After doing that I discovered with:
    Code:
    xsetwacom --get touch Mode
    that Mode was set to Absolute. For touch it should be Relative, and it's suppose to be hard coded in nowadays. So what appears to be happening is stylus settings are getting "stuck" and applying to touch. Once I added to the touch section of the script:
    Code:
    xsetwacom set touch Mode "Relative"
    and reran the script the major problem seemed to be fixed. Once that was done Suppress, RawSample, and ClickForce stopped reflecting the stylus settings and went back to the touch defaults. Which are apparently 4, 2, and 27 respectively.

    I'm hoping I've gotten lucky and "solved" the problem for anyone having difficulty with touch. Obviously interested in feedback.

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

    Well, if I weren't old and grey already then attempting to get a Bamboo fun working would sure make me that way.

    Favux, I have made a complete new install on another machine. The only things it has in common with the first is the Wacom tablet and the CRT monitor.

    The touch behaviour is exactly the same as for the other install.
    Laggy touch, no gestures, no scrolling, pen is fine.

    This time
    Code:
    dmesg | grep [Ww]acom
    gives...
    ~$ dmesg | grep [Ww]acom
    [ 13.247193] input: Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Pen as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb2/2-3/2-3:1.0/input/input6
    [ 13.286796] input: Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Finger as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb2/2-3/2-3:1.1/input/input7
    [ 13.304749] usbcore: registered new interface driver wacom
    [ 13.304755] wacom: v1.52-pc-0.3:USB Wacom tablet driver

    so it cannot be that for this, or the other presumably.

    Again I checked the touch speed after step 1, it was fine though nothing else worked- tap click etc.

    Step 2 cripples touch and I do not know why.

    The only workaround I posted earlier but this does not give gestures, scrolling etc just a slightly better acceleration.

    As you and others have
    as good as windows
    I am at a loss to know why.

    Is it Chipset ? both my compys run single core AMD cpu's and ATI graphics
    Are the others who are experiencing laggy, crippled touch using the same or something else ?? are you ??.

    Is there another version of ubuntu that is more configurable ?
    I have 8.04 and 9.04 on this machine, is there a How-to for Bamboo Fun Medium for those versions I could try..?


    EDIT... our posts must have crossed in the ether!! will try your mods now and report. Thanks, Bob.

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

    NO joy, tried xsetwacom set touch Mode "Relative"
    and xsetwacom set 12 Mode "Relative" as below.

    No change at all, rebooted both times.


    Here is the modified script ...
    ## Device names and ID numbers from 'xinput --list'.

    ## stylus = ID 10 = "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Pen"
    xsetwacom set 10 Suppress "2" # data trimmed, 0-100
    xsetwacom set 10 RawSample "20" # default is 4
    xsetwacom set 10 ClickForce "6" # 1-21
    xsetwacom set 10 PressCurve "5 10 90 95"
    xsetwacom set 10 TPCButton "on"
    xsetwacom set 10 Mode "Absolute" # or Relative
    xsetwacom set 10 Button1 "1" # left mouse click
    xsetwacom set 10 Button2 "3" # right mouse click
    xsetwacom set 10 Button3 "2" # middle mouse click

    ## eraser = ID 9 = "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Pen eraser"
    xsetwacom set 9 Suppress "2" # data trimmed, 0-100
    xsetwacom set 9 RawSample "20" #default is 4
    xsetwacom set 9 ClickForce "6" # 1-21
    xsetwacom set 9 PressCurve "0 10 90 100"
    xsetwacom set 9 Mode "Absolute" # or Relative
    xsetwacom set 9 Button1 "1"

    ## touch = ID 12 = "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Finger"

    xsetwacom set 12 Touch "on"
    xsetwacom set 12 Gesture "on"
    xsetwacom set 12 Mode "Relative"
    # 1FG dbl. tap is left click, 2FG dbl. tap is right click
    xsetwacom set 12 ZoomDistance "50" # default is 50
    xsetwacom set 12 ScrollDistance "20" # default is 20
    xsetwacom set 12 TapTime "250" # 2FG R click, default is 250 ms

    ## pad = ID 11 = "Wacom BambooFun 2FG 6x8 Finger pad"
    xsetwacom set 11 Button1 "key ctrl t" # toggle touch script
    xsetwacom set 11 Button2 "key backspace"
    xsetwacom set 11 Button3 "3" # right mouse click
    xsetwacom set 11 Button4 "key alt left" # Back a page in FireFox


    and now ....
    blunder@blunder-desktop:~$ xsetwacom get 12 mode
    Relative
    blunder@blunder-desktop:~$ xsetwacom get 12 suppress
    4
    blunder@blunder-desktop:~$ xsetwacom get 12 rawsample
    2
    blunder@blunder-desktop:~$ xsetwacom get 12 clickforce
    27
    blunder@blunder-desktop:~$

    Darn. Bummer. I was hoping I had it. And your sure the ID number for touch is right?

    Oh well, I'm going to go pass out.

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

    OK, one thing I forgot to mention is I messed with the 10-synaptics.conf at /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/. I changed the first snippet from:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "synaptics"
    EndSection
    to
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    	MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    	Option "ignore" "on"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "synaptics"
    EndSection
    not because I hold out much hope but because that was another change active on my system when I "fixed" touch.

    Be careful when editing a .conf file. Be prepared to restore from the command line using nano if you do. It's easy to break things with the .conf files, just like xorg.conf.

    Oh and by the way I ended up with the xorg.conf and new udev rules to "replicate" the problem. After a long and winding road.

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

    Hi Favux,

    I took to heart the rebooting several times business, and after many a reboot, no dice: the touch behavior is exactly as Robert described in an earlier post.

    I read through the conversation between you and Robert and set out to modifying my files accordingly. Before I started, I plugged the tablet in and lo and behold! It no longer works. It was working fine (as described before) yesterday. The only thing that has changed has been that I applied this week's proposed updates.

    So, should I go through the installation process again or is there a simpler fix?
