I am trying to get Wacom Bamboo1 Medium tablet (productid=0x6b) working on ubuntu. The tablet is detected with latest input-wacom drivers but the dsktop cursor doesnt move when the pen is moved. The relevant output from X.org log is here

So you can see that the tablet is detected by the xorg and driver is loaded but the cursor is not moving. Am I missing anything in the config?

Hi vivekkhurana,

Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

From your Xorg.0.log I see you have xf86-input-wacom0.10.11 so I assume you are in Natty.

Right now your model, which is new, isn't in either the default Natty kernel driver wacom.ko or the Wacom X driver xf86-input-wacom. So you will need to update both. Please see the Bamboo P&T HOW TO (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1515562) or the linux wacom HOW TO (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1038949) for instructions on installing input-wacom and xf86-input-wacom.

Built both input-wacom and xf86-input-wacom from source but no luck. The device is detected but not working. I can repost the logs if required.

Sorry, I should have said you need to clone the git repository of xf86-input-wacom (part II. c of the BambooPT HOW TO). If you used the xf86-input-wacom-0.11.1 tar the 6b didn't make it into that point release. Hopefully that's the problem.

Building from git source did the trick.

Thanks :)
