    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    I don't have a Wacom, but I have messed around with trying to configure my Finepoint for my tablet PC with the hal method before I read that it wouldn't work.

    I'm not sure how the person above was able to not add a server layout section to his xorg.conf, but I would like to know. Since installing Intrepid, whenever I add the server layout to my xorg.conf, it gives me occasional flickering and color lines during use and always on shutdown. Sometimes shutdown even hangs.

    Here's my xorg...
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Tablet"
    	Driver		"fpit"
    	Option		"Device"		"/dev/ttyS0"
    	Option		"InvertY"
    	Option		"MaximumXPosition"	"12550"
    	Option		"MaximumYPosition"	"7650"
    	Option		"MinimumXPosition"	"400"
    	Option		"MinimumYPosition"	"400"
    	Option		"SendCoreEvents"	"True"
    	Option		"TrackRandR"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier	"Default Layout"
    	Screen		"Default Screen"
    	InputDevice 	"Tablet"
    EndSection
    For whatever reason, adding that server layout and putting the default screen in seems to mess with my video driver.

    I'm using a Gateway cx2619.

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    Just to tip off, used the option B (edited the x.org), in Intrepid with a Wacom Bamboo Fun, and worked perfectly. Pad, buttons, pen/eraser and pressure work. Don't have the mouse, so don't know about that. Won't hotplug (to be sure, deleted the wacom.fdi )
    Tested in GIMP and Inkscape.

    also, here is the method that i used to intsall wacom in hardy, and i think that this is why my tablet input is referenced to both /dev/ttyS0 and /dve/input/wacom.
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=765915

    this week[end] when i get some time, i may do a clean reinstall (i only use linux for a backup partition/messing around) and i will report how that goes with the tablet. also, does anyone know if the tablets work in the 64-bit ubuntu?

    It does. No Adobe programmers where hurt during the production of the linuxwacom driver.

    I don't know the fpit at all. For the ServerLayout section, it shouldn't create any problem, especially if you did a clean install of Intrepid.

    You might have more chance creating a specific thread for your model of Tablet PC, of for the device type (fpit?).

    You can also check with a previous working xorg.cong in Hardy, and if you never installed Hardy on it, even better, go for a Gutsy or Feisty install and check what a working xorg.conf file looks like in these previous versions of Ubuntu.

    Well, when I updated to Intrepid from Hardy before doing a clean install, it did the same thing. The tablet stuff was essentially the same.

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    So with the same xorg.conf as in Hardy, you now have fickering and colored lines, whereas it was working flawlessly in Hardy?

    If that's the case, you should open a bug in Launchpad (while still opening a thread in the forums if you want to get help) because it's a regression (put the tag "regression" in your bug report). Don't forget to attach the xorg.conf from Hardy if you still have it, and the relevant files for Intrepid.

    To simplfy the process of collecting the files, don't open the bug yourself. Instead, create a launchpad account, then in a terminal in Intrepid, run the command:
    Code:
    ubuntu-bug xorg

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    Hi,
    I'm trying to switch the function of the pen buttons on my graphire4 in ubuntu8.10 interpid without a success.
    According to the guide I made a file in usr/share/hal/policy/wacom.fdi with this content:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
    
    <deviceinfo version="0.2">
    
      <device>
        <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input">
          <match key="info.product" contains="Wacom">
    	<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">wacom</merge>
    	<merge key="input.x11_options.Type" type="string">stylus</merge>
    	<merge key="input.x11_options.Button2" type="string">button 3</merge>
    	<merge key="input.x11_options.Button3" type="string">button 2</merge>
          </match>
      </device>
    
    </deviceinfo>
    but there is no difference at all, I tried different button numbers but the buttons still have their default functions. I tried even restart not only unplug/plug the device.
    Can somebody help me?

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    Hi daviebasite,

    Can you try without the extra "button" in the option string? i.e.:

    Code:
      <merge key="input.x11_options.Button2" type="string">3</merge>
      <merge key="input.x11_options.Button3" type="string">2</merge>

    Thanks for taking attention I tried your suggestion but still there's no difference.
    I made one test..
    I deleted 10-tabletPCs.fdi and 20-wacom.fdi files and also cleaned the tablet setting from xorg.conf. After reboot the tablet is working still by the same way with all extras, that makes me think that the tablet takes it's settings from somewhere else? Is this possible?
    Currently I use only this wacom.fdi file in the ./policy folder with the above settings, but maybe it doesn't matter.
