Hello everyone,

as all the threads about tablet support for this model seem to have changed to jaunty and i don't want to cange yet i decided to start a new thread for my problem.

i had my laptop perfectly working (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6658142&postcount=525) at least for my purposes but yesterday it suddenly stopped working.

i already have had this before everytime the kernel version changed so i decided to just rerun my linuxwacom-compilation-script (you can find it attached to my original post (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6658142&postcount=525)). But that didn't solve the problem as the script returned:

cp: Aufruf von stat für „./src/2.6.27/wacom.ko“ nicht möglich: No such file or directory

this was strange as the same script worked the last time and i haven't changed it. i also tried different linuxwacom versions without success.
in the output of make i found a strange note but i don't know whether it has been there the last time (as someone in another forum said that he has this message too and it worked nevertheless):

***Note: Drivers not enabled as modules in your kernel config but requested through configure are NOT built

i hope that someone can help me with this.

Hi alex,

There was a kernel header update for 2.6.27-11 the other day which broke the kernel module again as usual. I went through the HOW TO again here:


Using the new development 0.8.3-1 and had no problems. Wacom works fine. It's now been replaced with 0.8.3-2 which I think is Jaunty compatible.

Hi Favux,

thanks for the fast reply.

My try was based on gali's tut on wich your's is based.
i now addes the lines installing and purging the wacom tools and tried different linuxwacom versions.

but i think the problem has to be somewhere else as as i said the same script worked for me when i updated to 2.6.27-11 from 2.6.27-9.

are the build environment options identical with yours?

i appended the output of my script to this post
