    Red face M200 Tablet Screen Not Responding

    Hi -
    I just installed 10.10 on my toshiba m200. Everything seems to working fine except the screen recognizing pen touch. Do I need to enable something somewhere? I'm new to ubuntu and could use some getting this working. thanks!

    Hi daibewklein,

    The toshiba m200 should work out of the box with Maverick. It has a serial internal connection so it is a serial tablet PC as opposed to a usb tablet PC.

    Check to see that the Wacom X driver wacom_drv.so in xf86-input-wacom is installed. Ubuntu calls the package that has xf86-input-wacom "xserver-xorg-input-wacom". Do a search for that in Synaptic Package Manager or the Software Center and make sure it is installed. It should be by default. If it isn't, install it and reboot.

    Maybe the keywords in the 50-wacom.conf at /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d aren't matching your tablet. Let's check the output in a terminal of:
    Code:
    xinput list
    first.

    I have a similar issue. 10.10 on a M200.
    The pen worked at the beginning but no longer works.

    I checked, and the "xserver-xorg-input-wacom" package is installed.

    output of xinput list:
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
    ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ PS/2 Mouse id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Toshiba input device id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]


    I'm also still digging on how to enable the buttons on the bezel while in tablet mode as well as the four soft buttons on the one side.

    On another note, has anyone had any luck with the SD reader on this machine?

    Hi mad13mark,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    Your Wacom input tools (stylus & eraser with two side buttons?) aren't showing up in xinput list.

    First check in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d that you have a file called 50-wacom.conf. If you do post the contents.

    Also if it is there we should look at your Xorg.0.log to see if it will tell us what's going wrong. It is located at /var/log. Since it is big you can compress it by right clicking on it and using Create Archive. Then attach it to your next post with Manage Attachments below.

    Re: M200 Tablet Screen Not Responding

    The wacom.conf appears OK and it seems to match the tablet to the X driver (xf86-input-wacom or what Ubuntu calls the xserver-xorg-input-wacom package) but there appears to be some kind of initialization error:
    Code:
    [    22.849] (II) config/udev: Adding input device Serial Wacom Tablet (/dev/ttyS0)
    [    22.849] (**) Serial Wacom Tablet: Applying InputClass "Wacom serial class"

    [    22.851] (II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
    [    22.851] (EE) PreInit returned NULL for "Serial Wacom Tablet"
    Let's see if we can verify it is on ttyS0. What is the output of?:
    Code:
    sudo dmesg | grep ttyS
    We may want to try to set up an xorg.conf instead of a wacom.conf. Do you have one at /etc/X11? If so please post the contents.

    Re: M200 Tablet Screen Not Responding

    Thanks for helping me out on this!

    output of sudo dmesg | grep ttyS
    [ 0.516050] 00:09: ttyS0 at I/O 0x338 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
    [ 23.783031] ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!
    [ 621.696779] ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!
    [ 1210.876801] ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!

    I don't have xorg.conf in etc/X11/

    Alright it looks like it is on ttyS0, which is where you would expect it. Let's see if the dmesg result is congruent with the setserial output. Run this command in a terminal and post the output:
    Code:
    sudo setserial -g /dev/ttyS0

    Re: M200 Tablet Screen Not Responding

    Comparison of the results:

    ~$ sudo dmesg | grep ttyS
    [ 0.511858] 00:09: ttyS0 at I/O 0x338 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
    [ 22.703733] ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!
    [ 237.496796] ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!

    ~$ sudo setserial -g /dev/ttyS0
    /dev/ttyS0, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x0338, IRQ: 4

    And they match....

    Re: M200 Tablet Screen Not Responding

    That seems to shoot down that idea. We were seeing similar errors in lubuntu but the dmesg and setserial outputs didn't match. I suppose it could be the baud rate instead of the port or irq. So lets try adding to /etc/serial.conf the following anyway:
    Code:
    /dev/ttyS0 port 0x338 irq 4 baud_base 34800
    using:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/serial.conf
    That way the driver will know what the baud rate is from the get go.
