I have e-mailed tokenrove, hopefully with his help all this will work out.
Thanks for all the help Favux.
1 Download wacom_serial-120327-1.tar.bz2
2 Change 0x3d to 0x3e (wacom_serial.c, serio-ids.h)
3 make all
sudo cp inputattach /usr/bin
sudo cp wacom_serial.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet
sudo depmod -a
sudo inputattach --wacom_iv /dev/ttyS0
However, can't move mouse cursor with touch pen.
it was works on UbuntuStudio13.04 until yesterday.
Tablet Wacom PL-550
Welcome to Ubuntu forums!
Hard to believe you had a hardware failure just then. I assume you reinstalled wacom_serial.ko because Update Manager installed a new kernel? So reinstalling it should have worked which means something else changed. Do you remember what else it installed? Anything to do with the X Server or xf86-input-wacom? If you don't remember you can check Update Manger's log at /var/log/apt/history.log.
Information that might be of some use to some of you i’d like to share.
sometime ago i got a digitizer ii ud-1218-r but it did not have the wall wart or serial cable with it, in my quest for a serial cable i came across one man that had used a serial cable to usb hack and one drawing of the original serial cable used. and at that time no serial driver in Linux.
so getting this ud-1218-r working was looking pretty thin, until i came across a forum where they are using a teency 2.0 to complicate with the tablet over usb, you do need to take the tablet apart and do some soldering and some programing . but in the end if all goes well your tablet works and all you have is a usb cable coming out of it. the tablet will get it’s power from the teency through usb connection.
i did everything from xubuntu 12.04 64bit and i have tested it on ubuntu 10.04 64bit and xubuntu 12.04 64bit the kernel drivers were already installed.
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 056a:0045 Wacom Co., Ltd Intuos2 12x18
so now ubuntu or xubuntu See’s my digitizer ii ud-1218-r as a ID 056a:0045 Wacom Co., Ltd Intuos2 12x18.
link below for forum doing the hack
I just wanted to make a public statement about the status of the driver; here seems to be the best place as most of the users looking for support come through this thread. Everyone who has emailed me knows I haven't had much time to troubleshoot issues with the driver, and I apologize for that. I think many of these problems come from the driver not being integrated in the kernel.
In February, I submitted a patch to the linux-input maintainer, which was said to be acceptable, but I was asked to look into unifying my driver with the USB wacom drivers instead. There are two reasons why this hasn't happened yet, and may not happen:
- I haven't had much time to work on the driver in general, let alone try to merge it with other code (which I do not expect to be a fruitful effort given the significant differences between the drivers).
- This will require significant cooperation from the "modern" Wacom driver maintainers, who history has shown would be happy to see Wacom serial devices disappear from the face of the Earth. I hate to put this so antagonistically, but I can't help seeing it this way after the reaction to my kernel submission.
I wanted to let everyone know that there is a good chance I will work on this again in the next couple of months (perhaps an intermediary solution would at least be to get a serio ID reserved for the driver in future kernels), but overall, I don't have a lot of time to work on it, and if someone else wants to step up and maintain the code (which probably actually mostly means more politicking and less coding), the opportunity is there. The code's all GPL, you'd have my blessing, et cetera.
Thanks to everyone using the driver, and let's hope there's a brighter future for these excellent devices than tossing them in the garbage.
Hello I'm back again. It turns out that last time I didn't have the driver correctly installed.
Now that I have it installed properly, can we try this again?
Xorg shows this about it:

Oh boy, sorry to bump this thread with nothing useful, but I felt I needed to register to the forums to express my gratitude.
I got my stupid Graphire2 working thanks to the gathered knowledge in this thread!
One line should be bolded though ... or written in 50pt
When you run the make all command both the compiled inputattach.ko along with wacom_serial.ko will now no longer conflict with tsc40.ko.
I usually don't believe in magic, but I spent hours wondering why an installed driver would work perfectly, and completely disappear after a reboot.
To everyone involved!
Inspiration is not jumping out at me. Have you tried commenting out the xorg.conf Wacom stylus stuff and checked if there is any difference with just xorg.conf.d? Did we establish what version of xf86-input-wacom you are using?
What are you seeing in lsmod? Did you specify what serial to usb converter you are using? We may have to check its kernel driver to see if it has the support for the Wacom X driver ioctl. But as I mentioned that was dropped a while ago so I'm a bit puzzled by that error message. Maybe we should be going the other way and be specifying the ioctl option in xorg.conf or xorg.conf.d? Somehow your converter's kernel driver requires that? Never needed to do that before. Might be a pain to figure out the details because I sure don't remember. If we're lucky maybe there was a wiki entry somewhere.Code:xsetwacom -V
I gather no help from tokenrove?
Glad you got set up. Nice job.
Unfortunately I can't update the HOW TO in this thread. They locked us out in May of 2012. All HOW TOs were suppose to be transformed into wiki pages and transferred to the community wiki. The up-datable version of this HOW TO is here.
I tried commenting out the Wacom stylus stuff in xorg.conf but it didn't make a difference.
The version of xf86-input-wacom that I am using is 0.22.1
Here is what lsmod shows:

has support for the Wacom X driver ioctl.
I don't think xorg or ioctl is the problem. As far as I can tell the driver is requesting
information from the tablet, but the tablet isn't responding. And since the tablet
isn't responding xorg can't get the information it needs.
No I haven't heard anything else from tokenrove, but I might send him another email
now that I have had a look at the driver.
