    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    Hi!

    Solution of Favux works for my Wacom Bamboo on 9.04 also.

    Still no fifth button recognized by X -> no scrolling
    Giving a key mapping directly in .fdi does not work either

    To Sawer:

    I ignored that part if you read my version of it in this post:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=175

    You might try using Favux's FDI file for simplicity, but please read directions carefully. After that, try using "wacomcpl" from Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (if you use Gnome). It produces a configuration file. Just rename that file into an .SH file if you want. After that, put a command-line for it as "sh /folder_stuff/config_file_name.SH" in System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications.

    You don't need to put that file into "/init.d/".

    To ubootfanat:

    Have you tried "wacomcpl" from a command shell / Terminal yet? Maybe you will find the "fifth" button setting there?

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    yes I tried all of that.

    wacomcpl and xsetwacom show a correct mapping of the scroll wheel to button 4 and 5. but X does not recognize button5.

    again a few details:
    • xev shows buttons 1-4. the button5-mapped scrollwheeldirection does only show motion events.
    • Code:
      $ xinput list
      ...
      "pad"	id=10	[XExtensionKeyboard]
      Num_keys is 248
      Min_keycode is 8
      Max_keycode is 255
      Num_buttons is 4   <--- whats that?
      Num_axes is 6
      ...


    any ideas how (and where) hal adds the devices to xinput? maybe theres a bug there which only detects/reports 4 buttons of the pad.

    thanks in the meanwhile

    Hi ubootfanat,

    What's button4 (the scroll wheel up I guess) set to?

    I wonder what happens if you add button5 to the pad section:
    Code:
      <device>
        <match key="input.x11_options.Type" contains="pad">
          <merge key="info.product" type="string">pad</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.Button5" type="string">5</merge>
        </match>
      </device>
    It seems to me I've seen or there used to be a command something like "ButtonNo" "5". But I don't see it in the LWP HOW TO. Maybe it's an Xinput command?

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    thanks for replying. I tried all of that:

    Code:
    <merge key="input.x11_options.Button5" type="string">5</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.AbsWDn" type="string">5</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.RelWDn" type="string">5</merge>
    still there is no button5 recognized by X.

    I am wondering how xinput knows how many buttons are available for each input device. I have not found that info up to now. may it be part of the driver?

    is there anyone else with a wacom bamboo and a missing scroll-event?

    Hi ubootfanat,

    You may be right. I know it is partly through a chain of .fdi's that are upstream of 10-wacom.fd. For example the 10-TablePC.fdi in osvendor. So maybe a .fdi upstream? But the linuxwacom driver not covering a newish feature yet sounds possible too. The development branch is up to 0.8.3-4 after all. And Ron posted new udev rules about a month ago that included the Intuos4 etc.

    Still can't get my pad to work with my bamboo fun. wacomcpl shows up but doesn't give options for stylus.eraser,pad etc. The stylus works fine as a pointing device just the pad doesn't work. This is a real bummer.

    To ubootfanat:

    How about going into Terminal and put in the below two lines?

    xsetwacom set pad AbsWDn "core key NumpadPlus "
    xsetwacom set pad AbsWUp "core key NumpadPlus "

    Please report if you get an error message. If the device is undetected, then you should get messages that mentions such. Otherwise if you get no messages, try using your circular touch pad to see if you get "+" symbols.

    Something I didn't mention is that I could revert to my original settings with Favux's FDI file. It looks more like this:

    Code:
    xsetwacom set pad AbsWDn "core key  CTRL  SHIFT s"
    xsetwacom set pad AbsWUp "core key  CTRL  SHIFT s"
    xsetwacom set pad Button4 "core key  NumpadMinus "
    xsetwacom set pad Button3 "core key  NumpadPlus "
    xsetwacom set pad Button2 "core key  F12 "
    xsetwacom set pad Button1 "CORE KEY  Esc"
    xsetwacom set stylus Suppress "15"
    xsetwacom set stylus RawSample "15"
    xsetwacom set stylus ClickForce "5"
    xsetwacom set stylus PressCurve "0 0 100 100"
    xsetwacom set stylus Accel "1"
    xsetwacom set stylus SpeedLevel "4"
    xsetwacom set stylus TPCButton "off"
    xsetwacom set stylus mode "Relative"
    xsetwacom set stylus Button3 "Button 3"
    xsetwacom set stylus Button2 "Button 2"
    xsetwacom set stylus Button1 "Button 1"
    xsetwacom set eraser Suppress "15"
    xsetwacom set eraser RawSample "15"
    xsetwacom set eraser ClickForce "5"
    xsetwacom set eraser PressCurve "0 0 100 100"
    xsetwacom set eraser Accel "1"
    xsetwacom set eraser SpeedLevel "4"
    xsetwacom set eraser mode "Relative"
    xsetwacom set eraser Button1 "Button 1"
    xsetwacom set cursor Accel "1"
    xsetwacom set cursor SpeedLevel "4"
    Else in a previous post, my settings worked properly without Favux's FDI file.

    To Sawer:

    Have you downloaded the FDI file from Favux yet?

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=176

    Please make sure to rename it to:

    10-Wacom.FDI

    You can do this by right clicking on the file, erasing the entire name, and then just putting the new name in. We can proceed after.

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    shatterblast: Thanks I now have my pad working sort of. The scroll ring only works one way (up). how do I get this changed and how to I access wacomcpl? It shows up but it doesn't give me any options.
    One of biggest problems is finding the files to edit, I've done searches for them but don't find any that can be edited.
    As I've stated in other posts I'm not much of a geek, I do graphics stuff more than anything else, so please keep it as simple as possible.
    It appears that the device is not found in wacomcpl or xsetwacom.
    Thanks
