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

    I've got a Bamboo Pen & Touch Medium Special Edition and I've followed the guide up until "Configure the Wacom Bamboo P&T tablet." I'm not sure what to do there. The tablet isn't working and I don't know what to do to check if it's even recognized.

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

    Hi Heliotron,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    It sounds like you have the CTH661/L Product ID = 0xdB which is one of the new models. See the box near the top with the models in it. With your model you still need to modify the linuxwacom wacom_wac.c to get your tablet recognized. See the text and link at the bottom of the model box. xf86-input-wacom already has the patches for your model so you're good there.

    You can enter:
    Code:
    lsusb
    in a terminal to confirm your mode number.

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

    So I've got a P&T that has been giving me some trouble. I have two machines I tried it on (henceforth 'laptop' and 'desktop'). On the laptop, I got it set up pretty easily with a fresh install of lucid and everything was working fine. Then I tried it on the desktop and I had a problem where the buttons on the pad will cause the cursor to move to the top left of the screen. So then I ran all upgrades and it doesn't work at all. I booted into the older kernel in Grub and it semi-worked again (same buttons problem). I gave up at that point and when I got to my first machine this morning, after running upgrades, it doesn't work either (even though it use to work perfectly). So then I started installing various kernel builds and trying. This is the result of my experiments:

    Code:
    Desktop:
    ----------------
    linux-image-2.6.32-20    pen works, touch works, pad buttons don't
    linux-image-2.6.32-27    nothing works
    
    
    Laptop:
    ----------------
    linux-image-2.6.32-24    everything works
    linux-image-2.6.32-25    nothing works
    linux-image-2.6.32-26    nothing works
    linux-image-2.6.32-27    nothing works

    Does this make any sense at all? What could the problem be with the newer kernel builds?


    Second question:
    If you're using the x-driver from xf86-input-wacom- 0.10.10, shouldn't you use the kernel driver from input-wacom-10.10, and not from the linuxwacom-0.8.8-10 package?

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

    Hi Everyone,

    this is my first post, so please forgive me any newbie mistakes.

    I have CTH-460/K(A) and thanks to this thread finally got it working.
    Big thx and respect to Favux for his persistent help and input!

    I use Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) 64bit.

    Below are the steps that were necessary for me:

    1. First I have removed all the stuff that I experimented with earlier, and were not absolutely necessary:

    Code:
    apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-input-wacom
    apt-get remove --purge wacom-dkms
    2. Downloaded linuxwacom-0.8.8.-10 from http://sourceforge.net/projects/linu...r.bz2/download

    3. In linuxwacom sources (wacom_wac.c) I added:
    Code:
    { "Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5",  WACOM_PKGLEN_BBFUN,  14720,  9200, 1023, 63, BAMBOO_PT };
    and

    Code:
    { USB_DEVICE_WACOM(0xD6) },
    in the respective places mentioned few posts ago in this thread (thx PublicNMI)

    4. Got latest xf86-input-wacom with git
    Code:
    git clone git://linuxwacom.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom
    5. In xf86-input-wacom sources (wcmUSB.c file) added:

    Code:
    { WACOM_VENDOR_ID, 0xD6, 100000, 100000, &usbBamboo     }, /* CTH-460/K */
    6. Compiled kernel module:

    Code:
    ./configure --enable-wacom --prefix=/usr
    make
    sudo cp ./src/2.6.30/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/wacom.ko
    sudo depmod -a
    7. Compiled xf86-input-wacom:
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
    make
    sudo make install
    8. Enabled kernel module:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe wacom
    After enabling the module, finger touch started working, but without pen (stylus).
    The pen however started to work after reboot.

    Currently in gimp I have a stylus working very nice - buttons on pen are working as well.
    However finger touch is still very jumpy and not very precise - still working on it.

    Does this make any sense at all? What could the problem be with the newer kernel builds?

    Second question:
    If you're using the x-driver from xf86-input-wacom- 0.10.10, shouldn't you use the kernel driver from input-wacom-10.10, and not from the linuxwacom-0.8.8-10 package?
    0.8.8-10 provides you with the stable kernel module, while -- as far as I know -- input-wacom-0.10.10 is more experimental.

    As for the tablet no longer working with newer kernel versions... Did you rebuild the wacom.ko kernel module after upgrading the kernel? If not, that's what you have to do -- rebuild and cp -- since with each new kernel version Ubuntu's default wacom.ko is being used again.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is the eraser configured correctly in Gimp's extended input devices -- that is, set to "screen", like the pen?

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

    Hi,

    input-wacom-0.10.10 is more experimental
    Yes, and it is different from the wacom.ko in the 2.6.37 kernel. We should stick to the 0.8.8-10 wacom.ko for now. However you'll have to use input-wacom for Natty or the 2.6.36 & 2.6.37 kernels. I've already included it the linuxwacom HOW TO as an alternate section 1 for Natty users along with some explanations.

    We may want to switch to input-wacom when the next point release of xf86-input-wacom comes, which will be 0.10.11. They are going to be paired so it will be input-wacom 0.10.11.
    and the finger touch is still very jumpy and not very precise
    Chris has submitted a couple of patch sets that should help with this. One uses another method to ID tablets with touch and the other tries to improve MT (multitouch) signal handling.

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

    Hello again,

    I've been trying to fix jumpy touch issue, but I cannot find
    Code:
    #define BAMBOO_TOUCH_JUMPED 30
    in my git-synchronized xf86-input-wacom sources.
    Should I use different sources or is there another way of dealing with the issue?

    Another thing is assigning zoom in/out functions of gimp to pad buttons.
    I tried:

    xsetwacom set 14 Button2 "key +"
    xsetwacom set 14 Button3 "key -"

    but this doesn't work (no reaction for pressing the buttons), while assigning ctrl+z/ctrl+y to buttons 1 and 4 works great.

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

    Hi redloff,

    #define BAMBOO_TOUCH_JUMPED 30
    Got removed a month or two ago with filter changes. They actually didn't fix it, they just removed it. Hopefully the ongoing changes will fix the jumpy touch issue.

    Apparently the button assignments got changed in there somewhere. I think for just the Bamboos, but I'm not sure.

    Button2 now equals Button6 and Button3 is now Button7. I haven't had a chance to test this yet. Let me know if that works. Will have to change the HOW TO again.

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

    Hi Favux,

    thanks for quick reply.
    In fact Button2 and 3 are working when I assign ctrl+z/ctrl+y to them, so the issue must be somewhere else..

    Hi everybody
    On my computer is rolling Maverick and since few days I got a Wacom Bamboo CTH-461/L, I've been googling and following a lot of howtos but I haven't succeed in setting up the tablet, so basically what I need are some instructions in what to check to find out the actual problem that is not letting me enjoy the bamboo stuff.
