Hey guys...

I've been trying for the past couple days to get the wacom digitizer to work in my Toshiba M400 Tablet PC, and just can't seem to do it. I've tried every how-to and how-not-to out there, and none of them have worked. I've compiled/replaced the wacom driver, edited xorg.conf, etc, and none of it appears to have any effect at all. Anyone got any ideas/suggestions? Also, does anyone know if there's a way to start the whole tablet thing from scratch without reinstalling? That would probably make it a bit easier to diagnose.

This is my xorg.conf:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Thank you so much, man...it worked perfectly:) Now I just need to find a way to get the screen to rotate correctly, but I doubt it'll be as much trouble.

Thanks!
