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

    Hi Triblaze,

    You are correct and this seems to be the problem:
    Code:
    [    37.628] (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Wacom Bamboo 4x5 Pen stylus" (type: STYLUS)
    [    37.628] (--) Wacom Bamboo 4x5 Pen stylus: top X=0 top Y=0 bottom X=-2147483648 bottom Y=9200 resol X=100000 resol Y=100000
    I seem to remember a while ago there was a brief period where an old version of xf86-input-wacom was putting out nonsensical coordinate values. So what is Wacom-dkms and where did you get it? I'm assuming a PPA? Did you check the date on it and the versions it was installing? And what release of Ubuntu are you using: Lucid, Maverick, or Natty?

    You probably need to uninstall the PPA and importantly the dkms and dependending on your release start over. Or you could try manually overriding the coordinates. See: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...le=Calibration Probably try the static coordinate Options.

    Wow, thanks for the speedy response.

    Anyways, when I got it I was looking for how to get the drivers in, and I found a really quick solution somewhere which I used, but I guess that's not always the best.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/wacom-plus
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms
    Found that somewhere and it worked great until now.
    Running Maverick.

    Reading SF, kinda get it, kinda lost. I'm relatively new to Linux, I can do most basic things but don't really get some of the more in-depth stuff.
    So while I get most of the commands on that SF page, I don't exactly know which of them to start with and if I need to do anything else with my files first.

    Actually I think DoctorMO's PPA should work for the Pen. He updated it fairly recently. So I don't know what's wrong, especially if it was working. Is there a 50-wacom.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d? There must be given your Xorg.0.log.

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

    Okay, sounds good, glad I don't have to uninstall and get different drivers or whatever.

    And yeah, there is, I'd tried putting some different options and stuff in it already, and when this problem initially happened, I went there to see what could be wrong or what needed fixing, but I had no idea what I would have to add/take out. Here's the conf.

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom class"
    # WALTOP needs a patched kernel driver, that isn't in mainline lk yet,
    # so for now just let it fall through and be picked up by evdev instead.
    #    MatchProduct "Wacom|WALTOP|WACOM"
        MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM|Hanwang"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom serial class"
        MatchProduct "Serial Wacom Tablet"
        Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "Wacom serial class identifiers"
            MatchProduct "WACf|FUJ02e5|FUJ02e7"
            Driver "wacom"
    EndSection
    
    
    # N-Trig Duosense Electromagnetic Digitizer
    Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom N-Trig class"
        MatchProduct "HID 1b96:0001|N-Trig Pen"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "wacom"
        Option "Button2" "3"
    EndSection
    What do?

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

    I don't know what's going on. The PPA wasn't installing the 10-wacom.conf in Lucid, but I think that was an Ubuntu problem that DoctorMO just picked up when he updated the PPA and not due to his packaging.

    You have a valid wacom.conf. I don't know what version of xf86-input-wacom he packaged. You could try adding the correct TopX, TopY, etc., as described in the Calibration HOW TO I linked you to, to the usb snippet. In other words:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom class"
    # WALTOP needs a patched kernel driver, that isn't in mainline lk yet,
    # so for now just let it fall through and be picked up by evdev instead.
    #    MatchProduct "Wacom|WALTOP|WACOM"
        MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM|Hanwang"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "wacom"
        <-- add the coordinate options here -->
    EndSection

    And I still got the same problem.

    I installed the drivers (the ones from the disk) on a windows comp too. It started messing up after that, but I don't think that would affect the tablet itself, would it? And it works on that computer, so the tablet's not broken.

    Oh, wow, I fail.


    It's working.


    The coordinate options did work, I just forgot to restart X after changing them.



    Thanks for the help and patience!


    And sorry for double post.

    Oh, and you're nice and helpful, I'm not new to forums in general but I'm new here, and I do love my Linux and I do get issues now and then with Ubuntu, so I think I'll stick around. So just wondering, what do I need to know. About here? Anything? Advice for a newcomer.

    Outstanding!

    Just be patient. It'll take a little time to get into the swing of things.

    Okay, thanks. I've crowded up this help thread enough, so I'll be off now, hope to see you around.

    Yeah, it's working, pressure and everything.

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

    Hi there!

    I am desperately trying to get my Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen & Touch CTH-661 to work in Ubuntu 11.04.

    My problems are:

    1) Although the tablet is recognized by Ubuntu, when I move the cursor near the borders of the screen, it becomes ‘crazy’ and I loose control of it (it jumps a lot). It is very annoying and it gets very difficult to use the unity bar or the scrollbar! I've tried to define the area with the "xsetwacom set area" command but all it does is 'crop' the working area. I’ve also tried MapToOutput, but without success. Am I missing something?

    2) When using the 2 finger touch, instead of scrolling, all I get is zooming... Any thoughts?


    I'm still learning the linux environment, so please use 'newbie' language

    Thank you very much for your patience!
