    How to make your Genius G-pen F610 Tablet work on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx

    This is how i made my Genius G-Pen F610 Tablet on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Everything works but the buttons the sides of the tablet, the buttons of the pen(stylus) work as well.

    First I was looking at these websites, as a reference:

    So, let's begin our journey:

    1. Add this ppa: ppa:doctormo/xorg-wizardpen
    (I've went to System-Administration-Software Sources-Other Software-Add and copy-pasted this at the APT line: ppa:doctormo/xorg-wizardpen )

    2. Install xserver-xorg-input-wizardpen
    (I went to System-Administration-Synaptic Package Manager and typed wizardpen (on the QuickSearch bar)
    It showed me that there is a packet called xserver-xorg-input-wizardpen, I have right-clicked and check Mark for Installation, and then went to Apply button.)

    3. Run cat /proc/bus/input/devices in the terminal
    (I openned Applications-Accessories-Terminal and there I pasted (by that I mean pressing Middle-mouse button – this way you can easely paste) this code: cat /proc/bus/input/devices)
    Now it will show all the devices on your computer, so you need to find the event for your tablet.
    My F610 tablet is recognised by Ubuntu like this:

    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=172f Product=0034 Version=0110
    N: Name="WALTOP International Corp. Slim Tablet"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb7/7-2/7-2:1.0/input/input4
    U: Uniq=
    H: Handlers=kbd mouse1 event4 <---this is what you need to know
    B: EV=10001f
    B: KEY=c03 1f0001 0 0 e080ffdf01cfffff fffffffffffffffe
    B: REL=103
    B: ABS=1ffff0001000003
    B: MSC=10

    Remember the event that you have. (Mine is event4. Maybe your event is different than mine, so be careful to not use another even in the following )

    4.Now we got to do the calibration:
    Paste in the terminal: wizardpen-calibrate /dev/input/event4 (or whatever event you may have, diferent than mine)

    This is what I've got:

    root@alexds-desktop:/home/alexds# wizardpen-calibrate /dev/input/event4

    Please, press the stilus at ANY
    corner of your desired working area: ok, got 716,11631 <---This is when I have pressed the pen on to the tablet

    Please, press the stilus at OPPOSITE <---again the same thing
    corner of your desired working area: ok, got 19870,349

    According to your input you may put the following
    lines into your XF86Config/X.Org configuration file: <---this means that I have to paste this on the the 70-wizardpen.conf

    Driver "wizardpen"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/event4"
    Option "TopX" "716"
    Option "TopY" "349"
    Option "BottomX" "19870"
    Option "BottomY" "11631"

    I only gonna copy(and later paste) the last5 lines. This means without: driver “wizardpen”

    5. Paste in Terminal: gedit /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    (Here we are going to edit this file using root privileges (check the "number" of your file name, maybe yours is different. You have to be root to do this. How to be root? Check that on Google or ubuntu forums.)

    A window should have poped-up with some text. You need to modify it to look like this:

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "wizardpen"
    MatchIsTablet "on"
    # Here I hardcoded the event4, please check wich event is yours.
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event4"
    # This line is the original one. I removed because my tablet was not matched:
    MatchVendor "UC-LOGIC|KYE Systems|Ace Cad <----This is what i removed
    #[CALIBRATION] This data was taken from wizard-calibrate tool( the data from the yellow rectangle)
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/event4"
    Option "TopX" "716"
    Option "TopY" "349"
    Option "BottomX" "19870"
    Option "BottomY" "11631"
    Driver "wizardpen"
    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "wizardpen ignore mouse dev"
    MatchIsTablet "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
    MatchVendor "UC-LOGIC|KYE Systems|Ace Cad" <----- This one i've kept
    Driver ""

    6. Now all that is left to do is to reboot and pray it works
