    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Hi!

    I have a serial Intuos 2 that I got working under Ubuntu 10.10 with a downgrade and a patch, as I recall vaguely.

    Now I would like to make it work with Oneiric. Went to https://github.com/RoaldFre/wacom_serial5, followed http://cipht.net/2011/07/02/wacom_se...l-release.html with obvious adjustments, no success. Then I saw the different steps in the first post of this thread. Now I'm confused

    Briefly grepped for wacom in my logs, saw nothing interesting.

    So what are the right steps to take in my case and/or what can I do for diagnosis, please?

    Hi thorwill,

    You're the first to try in Oneiric that I know of. Can you try the instructions in the HOW TO using the protocol 5 version i.e. II. a) Download and compile the protocol 5 wacom_serial5.ko (Intuos and Intuos2 tablets) - by roaldfre.

    Just post the output from the terminal so we can see where it goes wrong if it does. Oneiric has a new toolchain that basically requires linked libraries at the end of of the compile command. We'll have to see if that makes a difference.

    If you're successful you should see a freshly compiled wacom_serial5.ko.

    I followed the instructions from II b) down, though I chose linuxconsoletools-1.4.2. No problem until:
    Code:
    $: inputattach --wacom_v /dev/ttyS0
    inputattach: can't set line discipline
    I then switched to patched linuxconsoletools-1.4.1, now inputattach says nothing and the wacom does not move the pointer.

    Try:
    Code:
    sudo dmesg | grep ttyS
    and check and see if the tablet is now on S4.
    Code:
    inputattach --wacom_v /dev/ttyS4
    I'll have to check out the new version of linuxconsoletools. I wonder if that has Ping's patch in it?

    No, 0 is right:

    Code:
    $ sudo dmesg | grep ttyS
    [sudo] password for thorwil:

    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Did you use:
    Code:
    inputattach --wacom_v /dev/ttyS0
    or?
    Code:
    sudo inputattach --wacom_v /dev/ttyS0

    Without sudo, it complains: inputattach: can't set line discipline. With sudo it just works now!

    I could bet I made an attempt before, with sudo (as it did not complain), but no success. Well, main thing is it works!

    Thanks! Favux, tokenrove, Roaldfre, you people are awesome

    Good! By the way which Intuos2 model do you have?

    Say thorwil do you have an airbrush? If so does its scrollwheel work if you follow the xsetwacom instructions in this post?

    Also if you have a mouse is it working?

    OK - here goes

    Favux

    I've followed your excellent collections of net wisdom over several threads here on Ubuntu Forums, and had high hopes that my ageing Artpad II would finally be usable again...

    I have installed and compiled as instructed in the Oneiric section, and added the udev rules. I can see my tablet responding when using minicom - so the serial port on /dev/ttyUSB0 has the correct speed settings, but still no joy. I find no trace of wacom in my Xorg.0.log, or in /var/log/udev and have run out of ideas. This thread has unfortunately become so long that apart from reading the first and last pages, I have difficulty finding my way around - but was heartened by thorwils sucess.

    What do I do - what do I get to attach to provide any leads?

    Martin

    Hi mpGoodwin,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums and the thread!

    Assuming all went well with the compiling it may be your serial to usb convertor. Some of them need their kernel driver patched. Which one do you have? As much detail as possible please.
