Roger E Critchlow Jr. (rec) originally posted his script in post #21 on the "Re: wacom-tools 1:0.8.2.2-0ubuntu2 busted" thread in the closed "Jaunty Jackalope Testing and Discussion" forum. It translates the HAL/D-BUS names the info.callout in the 10-wacom.fdi file is returning. For rec these were 'PnP Device (WACf008 )', 'PnP Device (WACf008 ) touch', and 'PnP Device (WACf008 ) eraser', back to Wacom names so linuxwacom recognizes them. I added some instructions to rec's script and renamed it to "wacom-names". Rec called it "wacom" and gali98 called it "wacomtohal".
Download the attached "wacom-names" script to your Desktop. Open the script into gedit. To install the script type in a terminal:
Copy and paste the script into the empty file. Save and close. To make the script executable:
gksudo gedit /etc/init.d/wacom-names
Before you do the next step be very sure the script is now present in "/etc/init.d/". I suggest navigating there with Nautilus (Places) and verifying the file "wacom-names" is present. Open it up with gedit and verify the script is in the file. You can also check with properties to verify "wacom-names" is executable.
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/wacom-names
To link the script to the appropriate run-levels (2 3 4 5):
or you could use:
sudo update-rc.d wacom-names defaults 27
Starting it at 27 (S27) causes it to run after HAL is started and before Xserver starts. Reboot. Typing "xsetwacom list" in a terminal should now return Wacom names such as stylus, eraser, etc. and wacomcpl and xsetwacom commands should work. To calibrate and configure your tablet with wacomcpl go to Section 3 on page 1 post #1 of this thread.
sudo update-rc.d wacom-names start 27 2 3 4 5 .
To remove the script type the following in a terminal:
And then to complete the removal of the script type:
sudo update-rc.d -f wacom-names remove
Attached is rec's script renamed "wacom-names".
sudo rm /etc/init.d/wacom-names
