    I really hope this helps and THANK YOU A THOUSAND TIMES for the help
    Thank you. From the information that you gave, it shows that event7 is your pen and event8 is your touch. In order to help the system consistently grab that device, we will need to create a udev rule for it. Create a file called 61-ntrig.rules:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/61-ntrig.rules
    Paste the following:
    Code:
    # udev rules for n-trig tablets.
    #
    # These rules were compiled for the Ubuntu/Debian GNU/Linux distribution, but others may,
    # and indeed are encouraged to, use them also.
    #
    # Should you do so, PLEASE CO-ORDINATE ANY CHANGES OR ADDITIONS of new devices with ????
    # so that we can try to present users with a standard set of device nodes which they can
    # rely on across the board.
    
    KERNEL!="event[0-9]*", GOTO="n-trig_end"
    
    # To mirror linuxwacom, we keep the input/n-trig link as the generic stylus device.
    ATTRS{name}=="N-Trig Touchscreen", SUBSYSTEM=="input", SYMLINK+="input/n-trig-touch"
    ATTRS{name}=="N-Trig MultiTouch", SUBSYSTEM=="input", SYMLINK+="input/n-trig-mttouch"
    ATTRS{name}=="N-Trig Pen", SUBSYSTEM=="input", SYMLINK+="input/n-trig"
    ATTRS{name}=="N-Trig Pen", ATTRS{phys}=="usb-0000:00:14.5-2/input1", SUBSYSTEM=="input", SYMLINK+="input/n-trig-win7"
    ATTRS{name}=="N-Trig Pen", ATTRS{phys}=="usb-0000:00:14.5-2/input0", SUBSYSTEM=="input", SYMLINK+="input/n-trig-vista"
    ATTRS{name}=="N-Trig Touchscreen", ATTRS{phys}=="usb-0000:00:14.5-2/input0", SUBSYSTEM=="input", SYMLINK+="input/n-trig-vista-touch"
    
    # Check and repossess the device if a module other than the n-trig/linuxwacom one is
    # already bound to it.
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="1b96", ACTION=="add", RUN+="check_driver wacom $devpath $env{ID_BUS}"
    
    LABEL="n-trig_end"
    Once you save it, you will need to restart the computer for it to update the rules. To verify that it worked:
    Code:
    ls -l /dev/input
    If you are able to see entries n-trig-vista and n-trig-vista-touch in the list, then all is working. If that is all working, then we need a copy of your xorg.conf if you have one. There is usually one if you are using the fglrx driver. Otherwise, it will not be there.

    EndSection
    You will then need to restart X to get it to work. If you have configured anything in xorg.conf.d for them, you will want to take them out for now. Check and see if the information looks correct after restarting by using xinput --list. They should show up as touch and stylus.

    hmm they show up in xinput --list now but now the touch does not work. stylus still seems to work - and more good news with the beta rotation applet stylus now rotates ^_^ just need to nail down that pesky touch.

    Was touch working before this? I was thinking that the Vista firmware had both touch and stylus on if0.

    Can you try the following (and press control-c to stop the application):
    Code:
    sudo xxd /dev/hidraw0
    Please try it for both the stylus and pen. Let us know if you get a response from either or both.

    Next, please let us know if xsetwacom list shows both the touch and stylus. I just want to confirm that the wacom driver has found it. It might also help if you attached a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Thanks!

    Re: HOW TO: Set up the HP TX2z and Dell XT & XT2 (N-trig digitizer) in Ubuntu

    yes touch worked before but did not rotate now the stylus rotates but touch doesn't work at all ... it's probably because I'm not using the vista firmware I'm using the win7 (latest) firmware. is there something we need to change for that?


    sudo xxd /dev/hidraw0 had a ton of output from both pen and touch so touch still "works" but doesn't move the mouse at all.


    toph@toph-laptop:~$ xsetwacom list
    stylus STYLUS
    touch TOUCH

    and this is the /var/log/Xorg.o.log

    Re: HOW TO: Set up the HP TX2z and Dell XT & XT2 (N-trig digitizer) in Ubuntu

    I'm getting slightly different results by following this part of the thread.

    First I took out the 90-n-trig rule and replaced it with the 61-ntrig rule from here. then I get:

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 2010-05-20 07:22 n-trig -> event10
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2010-05-20 07:22 n-trig-touch -> event9
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2010-05-20 07:22 n-trig-vista -> event8
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2010-05-20 07:22 n-trig-vista-touch -> event9
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 2010-05-20 07:22 n-trig-win7 -> event10

    I noticed that the event numbers repeat unlike the other person's.

    I'm using the Fauvx's xorg.conf for multi-touch and when I rebooted the touch stopped working but the stylus still worked. Unlike the other person, I cannot get the stylus to rotate.

    If I change the xorg.conf file to reflect the suggested changes, everything stops working.

    Everything else is the same. I ran sudo xxd /dev/hidraw0 and it showed input from both the stylus and the touch, but the mouse only moved with the stylus.

    The button on the stylus does not work.

    HP Tx2z-1000 with Vista. Latest firmware as provided by HP from their support page.

    Also - here is the result of xsetwacom -v list

    Devices 6 and 7 accept xsetwacom commands but do not respond to xsetwacom commands. I can type xsetwacom set 7 touch off but the touch remains on. They don't accept any rotate commands either.

    Re: HOW TO: Set up the HP TX2z and Dell XT & XT2 (N-trig digitizer) in Ubuntu

    Sorry for the flurry of posts -- after this one I have to go to work...

    I started from 'scratch'. Got rid of xorg.conf, udev rule and check_driver.

    Rebooted - had touch and pen, but no control over them.

    Replaced the udev rule - once replaced and rebooted my devices now show up like the other person's (with unique id numbers).

    Replaced the xorg.conf -- only to lose both touch and stylus.

    Without xorg.conf I have both, but neither shows up in xsetwacom.

    Strange...

    Re: HOW TO: Set up the HP TX2z and Dell XT & XT2 (N-trig digitizer) in Ubuntu

    Ok - I uninstalled the compiled wacom driver and re-installed the xserver-wacom-whatever that's included with Ubuntu and now I have the identical results with the other person. Touch does not work, stylus works (with ROTATE!!!! nice!) So I'm at a pretty good place. It looks like in the Xorg log file that maybe evdev and wacom drivers are having a not-so-nice-time together (maybe?) I don't know what I'm looking at though...
