    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    Also, to verify stylus values:

    f0 is pen above tablet no buttons pressed, f1 is down on tablet
    f2 is pen above tablet button2 pressed, f3 is down on tablet with button2 pressed
    f4 is pen above tablet button3 pressed, f5 is down on tablet with button3 pressed

    When I say pressed, I mean held so I could see values for sure.

    Ok, I'll give it a shot. You may be right and it definitely worth knowing.

    Your tablet(s) aren't in 0.8.5, I looked.
    Yeah, we haven't given him (Ping) anything at all yet, so I'm not surprised. My X not working before really concerned me that the driver wasn't solid.

    Off to xorg.conf land - wish me luck

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    Favux, just to confirm - I am editing the xorg.conf in /etc/X11 right? That's the one I've always worked with. There isn't a usr version or other location we should be using is there (I'm sort of used to X from way back when slackware was new )

    No, that's the right and only location.

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    Ok, here's the update.

    If I try to boot with the tablet not connected, I get X crashing - like before.
    If the tablet is plugged in, then it does work great just like previously with the fdi in place.

    so...
    1. I remove the 10-wacom.fdi file out of /usr/share/hal/...
    2. I added in the stylus defs into xorg.conf and the ServerLayout section
    3. I commented out my touch-screen for good measure - tho it didn't help - it's still active with an fdi def I bet
    4. logged out to restart X, and no problem - sane as reboot
    5. tried a reboot with tablet disconnected - X tries 3 times to start - crashing each time and I'm left with a messed display?!


    What else should I try?

    Hi kgingeri,

    Love the doodle screenshot.

    If I try to boot with the tablet not connected, I get X crashing - like before.
    Sorry, it looks like I should have caught this before. With xorg.conf you don't have hot plugging like you do with the linuxwacom.fdi. But I don't think it should crash with the tablet unplugged. But then again xorg.conf has been touchy starting with Jaunty. It seems to localize to "ServerLayout" and maybe "SendCoreEvents" on the Wacom device input lines there. Some folks get activity without "SendCoreEvents". Which wouldn't happen in Intrepid or earlier.

    Could I see the xorg.conf you are using? What you would do with Intrepid and earlier is use the pseudo hot plug command:

    ctrl-alt-F1 and then ctrl-alt-F7

    and that would allow most folks to "hot plug" their tablet.

    I noticed the D2 device in the patch was listed as 512 but it should be 1024. At least that's what is advertised. Other than that problem I'm still working on setting the buttons correctly for it. The tip registers as scrolling up when I put it near the pad and also when touching.

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    Sorry for the delay. I was working on a cleaned up patch and playing with Xournal and CellWriter - working great.

    @Johnny2k, I will change the pressure to 1023 and see how that works. When you say your stylus is reporting scrolling, is that from the /var/log/messages? If so, have you collected all the codes for stylus button and actions you can? (use 'tail -f /var/log/messages' to give you a running commentary of activity, I found it easier )

    @Favux, here's the xorg.conf - pretty straight forward:
    Code:
    # 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.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # 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
    #

    EndSection
    I'm not too concerned about hot-plug. More so that I don't have to have my tablet connected for X to work. Any boot or logoff with it disconnected and that xorg.conf and X will not start.

    Gotta give my brain some zzzz's -back tomorrow again.

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    Ok, this really is my LAST update for now.

    Pressure doesn't seem much different with 1023 set - not sure.

    I've attached results in Xournal again...
