    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    READ THIS BEFORE: I followed the instructions into this link and now also the CTH460 works fine!

    Sorry for the unuseful post!


    I was an happy user of the Bamboo Fun tablet (model CTE450) with the 9.10; now I have just bought the new
    Bamboo Pen&Touch (model CTH460). When I plugged into usb the new one hasn't been recognized.
    I followed the 541 post to install an updated driver, but the CH460 tablet is still not recognized and the old one is working fine!

    I used the file Favux_Bamboo-Pen&Touch-working_10-wacom.fdi.txt
    in /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-linuxwacom.fdi
    where I added the line to recognize the 00d1 device.

    What I can see from the terminal:
    it21088@IBMT60RDV:~$ lsmod | grep wacom
    it21088@IBMT60RDV:~$ wacom 24368 0 (It seems that wacom driver is loaded)

    it21088@IBMT60RDV:~$ lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 006: ID 056a:00d1 Wacom Co., Ltd (It seems that tablet CH460 is recognized!)

    it21088@IBMT60RDV:~$ xinput list --short
    "Virtual core pointer" id=0 [XPointer]
    "Virtual core keyboard" id=1 [XKeyboard]
    "Video Bus" id=2 [XExtensionKeyboard]
    "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard" id=3 [XExtensionKeyboard]
    "ThinkPad Extra Buttons" id=4 [XExtensionKeyboard]
    "Sleep Button" id=5 [XExtensionKeyboard]
    "Power Button" id=6 [XExtensionKeyboard]
    "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" id=7 [XExtensionPointer]
    "Macintosh mouse button emulation" id=8 [XExtensionPointer]
    "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" id=9 [XExtensionPointer]

    The CTH460 tablet is not recognized
    Looking in Xorg.0.log I found these lines for wacom:

    it21088@IBMT60RDV:~$ grep wacom /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    (II) LoadModule: "wacom"
    (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//
    (II) Module wacom: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
    (**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    (WW) stylus: failed to open /dev/input/wacom in wcmDeviceTypeKeys.
    (**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    (WW) eraser: failed to open /dev/input/wacom in wcmDeviceTypeKeys.
    (**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    (WW) pad: failed to open /dev/input/wacom in wcmDeviceTypeKeys.
    (**) pad device is /dev/input/wacom
    (EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/wacom
    Error opening /dev/input/wacom : No such file or directory
    (II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
    (**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom-touch"
    (WW) touch: failed to open /dev/input/wacom-touch in wcmDeviceTypeKeys.

    But here I stop and I'm not able to make firther steps...
