    Hi J.,

    Do you actually mean calibrating or do you mean the stylus doesn't rotate?

    Maybe I do mean the stylus does not rotate.

    Thanks for the quick reply...J.

    Alright, some rotation methods are at the Rotation HOW TO. A method 1 script or method 3 should work for you.

    As far as calibration, that should happen automatically when you rotate. But you do need to be calibrated in one orientation (usu. landscape). If that's a problem do you have an old .xinitrc from wacomcpl that shows your calibration?

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    Hi,

    I'm running 3 monitors under ATI Catalyst (if that matters) under Maverick with n Intuos4. I've tried the "ScreenNo" and "MMonitor" options in the config file to lock the stylus to the center screen and haven't seen any results. I know X is reading the config file because when I tried the "twinview" option, the cursor got locked to one side of the screen. Any pointers?

    Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    hi,

    I am on Karmic Koala - 9.10. Just got a new Bamboo 'Pen and Touch' (CTH460). I was hoping for plug-and-play support in Ubuntu but stuck right now.

    I am not sure what I should do to have it working; I know about these sources:

    HOW TO: Install a LinuxWacom Kernel Driver for Tablet PC's
    HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid & Maverick and Other Wacom Tablets.

    and
    the Ubuntu community documentation.

    All I have done so far is this:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wacom wacom-tools
    What do I have to do next? Follow the directions in the first howto or the second one or something else entirely, which is suited for Karmic Koala?

    thanks,

    Hi oobu,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    For Karmic follow the first HOW TO to compile linuxwacom paying attention to the directions for Karmic. I'm thinking step 3 b) about the hid-ids is no longer needed. I think the Ubuntu dev.s fixed it. If so you'd just do step 3 a) like everyone else. Let me know if I'm right.

    You probably want to remove wacom-tools first though. Compiling linuxwacom will get you the latest version of wacom tools and will include wacomcpl.

    You don't need xf86-input-wacom with Karmic.

    Ubuntu 10.10 Serial Wacom Tablet

    In case anyone else has a serial Wacom tablet and wants to get it to work on 10.10:

    The patch mentioned earlier here does not work with the xf86-input-wacom version in 10.10, but you can patch, build and use xf86-input-wacom-0.10.6, if you additionally apply the patch found on http://www.mail-archive.com/linuxwac.../msg01079.html

    Hi thorwil,

    Wow! Nice work.

    So xf86-input-wacom 0.10.6 with the serial tablet patch wouldn't work with Maverick's Xserver 1.9 until you used the additional patch? Is that correct?

    Yes, corect. To be precise, xf86-input-wacom 0.10.6 does not build without the additional patch.
