View Full Version : [ubuntu] Aiptek 12000U: Really don't know where to start

November 16th, 2008, 08:45 PM

I am using Ubuntu 8.04 and an Aiptek 12000U tablet. I'd really like to get it going, but the information I find confuses me.

I know the aiptektablet project on sourceforge: http://aiptektablet.sourceforge.net/ . The documentation on this side is, let's say, very theoretical, so I took a look at the sourceforge page itself: http://sourceforge.net/projects/aiptektablet . The only documentation I considered relevant was the WIP release, which I didn't understand (I don't have profound knowledge of Linux, e.g. I never edited the xorg.conf).
Also, I found a tutorial in the ubuntu documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AiptekTablet . I was wondering about that the tutorial does not use the aiptektablet sourceforge project at all.

Actually, I don't know which documentation to follow. It would be great if you could give me some orientation, something like: "Read this link and follow this tutorial, and it'll (probably) (maybe) work!"
