    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    I tried the patch and it works, except for some wierd scrolling issue!
    It does some panning even if I don't touch any of the buttons of pen. Correlated with some Jaunty scrolling bug it keeps switching desktops.

    Anyway I'm quite pleased I was able to start drawing.
    My first drawing ever with a tablet:

    UPDATE: Oh, wait! The wierd scrolling issue is solved in the second patch...
    If only people would read what's laid plain in front of them...

    Re: New Wacom Bamboo not working

    Before applying the wcm2_patch there are 2, well, 3 commands that one needs to execute:
    tar -xvjf wcm2_patch.tar.bz2 # extracting patch files from the archive
    cd linuxwacom-0.8.4-3 # change to wacom driver source directory
    cp ../wcm2_patch/*.patch . # copy the extracted files to the wacom driver directory

The Xorg.0.log will help and see if xorg did not like something.

    Also, the /var/log/messages detail might help too. It will also let us know if the mouse was found by the kernel.

    The first set of logs that you sent was different than the others because it contained extra codes that have not been seen yet. Do you recall if that test was with touch?

    I will be creating another patch soon that will provide some detail about data[6] and data[7] (the two values being used for pressre) again. Am I correct that only the 0xD2 (johnny2K) and the 0xD3 (ehfortin) have the max pressure at 1024 and the other two have 512?
    Sorry, let me rephrase that: I can't use my bamboo to move the mouse any more, but my actual mouse still works.

    I have 1024 pressure levels as well, I think.

    EDIT: I did not press very hard when I was touching the pen to the pad so you might not see the maximum pressure.

    Xorg.0.log and messages attached.

    I'm experiencing the same problem! It worked quite well without the second patch and I was pleased with it - in spite of the scrolling issue.

    After I applied the second patch and restarted, the pen _did work_ as a mouse cursor for a few seconds, but after Gnome loaded the pen could not move the cursor more than a few pixels. It does move the cursor (sometimes...), but it's barely visible. Pen buttons work just fine - upper button activates right click menu and lower button changes the mouse cursor into "scrolling mode". So only pressure and left click do not work.

    Based on the Xorg.0.log file, the device never was loaded. My guess is that either the .fdi or xorg.conf file you are using is not working for your device. Some of the group are using the .fdi file from 0.8.4-5 from this post. You might try that one. You can also post your .fdi file from (/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty or /etc/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty) or your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and we can look at it.

    If that is the case, I will go ahead and revert the input_dev to point to the original version.

    EDIT: The wcm2_patch has been reverted to not have the input_dev but the code for the wheel is still removed.

    Is your log information from the wcm_working_patch? It looks to be that way because the messages file has [wacom] instead of [wacom-X] where is X is a number.

    sudo hexdump /dev/input/event7
    If so, does it work with the pen and the finger?

    If it does work for either one, you might try to set up the stylus on event7 and see what happens. So, yes, it is sorta what I am looking for.
    I don't seems to get anything. Right now, my stylus is working and I can't see hexdump results. I guess once the driver is loaded and X is using the device, we can't listen to it anymore.

    I saw in my latest test that if I create multiple InputDevice in xorg.conf on the same /dev/input/wacom, even if I was calling for a type "touch", it was initialized as an "eraser". So, I've created a xorg.conf calling /dev/input/wacom and /dev/input/wacom-touch 5 times and tried the various type. As you can see, stylus, eraser, pad and cursor are responding with the proper type. Touch is always getting back a "eraser" type.

    If I understand well, both device (wacom and wacom-touch) all worked. Nothing was working in X but... that's another story and I don't care at this point because it was not the purpose of the test.

    I'm including the content of xorg.conf and the logs I got in messages and Xorg.0.log. I've tried both the touch mode (finger pressure, left buttons) and the stylus. I only saw log for the stylus part. But I let you look at it, hoping you will see something I missed.

    I guess I'll go for the newest patch kit to see if I'm getting result that diverge from the other who tried it sooner today. I'll keep you posted.

    I just changed my 10-wacom.fdi to the one you mentioned above.
