    Asus R1E TabletPC in Ubuntu 9.10

    Hi y'all.


    I have looked through a few posts but couldn't manage to get this working on my own. I saw some posts about older versions of Ubuntu but wasn't sure if it still applied.

    I am using an Asus R1E-D1 which I hear uses the wacom drivers through usb (instead of serial).

    I wanted to try to livecd out first to make sure the tablet function worked before going through the install. (I don't know if this is the problem.)

    I know that my tabletpc device is being recognised because http://pastebin.ca/1667571 is the part of the output I get when typing "xinput --list".


    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'd be glad to provide more info if I left any details out.

    Thanks,
    Standarshy

    Hi standarshy,

    I'm pretty sure we've gotten some other Asus R1E & Asus R1F's using the modified .fdi I'm linking you to. I forget, do you have touch too. Anyway see gali98's HOW TO.

    I think all you need is the .fdi in "Section 2: Creating the Fdi File". You can do as much of the rest of it as you want/need or you could probably just set up wacomcpl. Oops, just noticed my HOW TO got butchered in an update. Darn.

    The R1E and R1F do not have the touch screen. Thanks for the advice. I will try when I find some more time.

    Hi standarshy,

    OK, then you can remove the touch section of the .fdi if you want.

    Anyway as I was saying you could then setup wacomcpl using "Section 3: Calibrating your Tablet PC" on this HOW TO.

    I am getting confused at this part:

    Start with this as a reference.
    Code:

    sudo gedit /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-wacom.fdi

    If you are on Karmic, use: (delete the contents)
    Code:

    sudo gedit /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-linuxwacom.fdi

    Copy and paste the above contents then save.


    >>It's telling me to delete the contents of what exactly? because it previously states to delete the contents.

    Hi standarshy,

    Gali98 is saying replace the contents of the default 10-linuxwacom.fdi with the new modified .fdi he shows you, but still call it 10-linuxwacom.fdi.
