View Full Version : [SOLVED] New Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet troubles

February 24th, 2011, 07:08 PM
Hey everyone.
I'm working on trying to get my new tablet to work on Maverick and I need some help. I'm using the Bamboo P&T HOWTO (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9496609&postcount=1) but I've run into a problem.

In step one, the guide says that I need to enter the following into the command line

"./configure --enable-wacom --prefix=/usr"

However, when I do, I receive the following message:

"NOTE: the X driver in this package only supports Xorg servers older than 1.7.
You are running a newer version.
Please build the X driver from xf86-input-wacom.
The kernel driver provided in this package is independent of
the X server version"

What I need is a little help interpreting the guide. It appears to me like this issue is what the second step in the guide is addressing, but I'm not sure. Is this something I have to resolve before continuing with the guide or is it going to work itself out as I progress?

Hi Tobey666,

You understand it correctly. It's telling you you can't use the linuxwacom X driver. But since you only want the usb driver wacom.ko that's fine. In part II. you'll build the xf86-input-wacom X driver which does work for X servers 1.7 and higher.
