    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Hi Favux !

    Thanks a *lot* for your efforts !

    I'm really sorry, but I didn't real the whole 12 pages ! However, I own a Bamboo Fun CTH661, and followed the entire steps I and II (Ubuntu Lynx AMD64).

    It *does* work ! The stylus at least (I don't need the rest anyway).

    However, the "response" is really strange: whenever I click with the stylus, the mouse pointer remains stuck in the same position until I click somewhere else with the stylus (I can still move the pointer with the actual mouse, of course). Also, the tablet seems to be in 16:10 format while my screen is in 16:9 format, so I wonder if it may induce some distortion.

    I tried to configure it but xsetwacom --list gives a blank list. Also there's no wacom file in /usr/lib64/X11/xorg.conf.d...

    Cheers !

    Edit : creating a /usr/lib64/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf file with the content of the conf file supplied in the xf86-input-wacom driver archive did the trick ! The stylus now behaves properly !

    So, that's yet another success ! (is there a potential ratio problem, though ?)

    Hi torturedutopian,

    Good, another Bamboo working!

    The ratio problem is always there if the monitor screen aspect is different than the tablets. You add to the usb snippet in the 10-wacom.conf under the wacom driver line:
    Code:
    Option  "KeepShape"  "on"
    I don't know if there is an equivalent xsetwacom command. You could try it and see if it's valid.

    Thank you again, Favux !

    I added the option in the /usr/lib64/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf file, in the first "input class" section entitled "wacom class".

    Do you know if those devices will be supported out of the box in Ubuntu 10.10 ? (I guess so)

    Cheers !

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    It stopped emailing me about this thread D: so a while ago my mouse got buggy. The right click jumped to the middle mouse button and when i right click it moves forward one page in firefox. I put the issue up here and someone told me to check the wacom drivers so I just tried reinstalling but at the part where I'm supposed to install Xorg's xf86-input-wacom for Lucid (the X driver), I try "make" and it spits the following out:

    Code:
    gagan@gagan-desktop:~/Desktop/linuxwacom-0.8.8-8/xf86-input-wacom$ make
    make  all-recursive

    Hi Tictoon,

    It looks like you didn't do the dependency line.

    I assume you're in Lucid. 64 or 32 bit?

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Hi Tictoon,

    Oops, sorry my fault. I should have seen the problem right away. It's directory confusion. You downloaded xf86-input-wacom inside the linuxwacom folder:
    Code:
    Entering directory `/home/gagan/Desktop/linuxwacom-0.8.8-8/xf86-input-wacom'
    because you didn't open a new terminal for II. You want to drag the xf86-input-wacom folder out onto the desktop as it's own folder. Then repeat II. starting at:
    Code:
    cd ./Desktop
    
    cd xf86-input-wacom

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    oh! hah XD i feel stupid I'll edit to let you know how it goes!

    ok, so it worked the tablet works again, the touch is still bad, and my mosue is in working order xD I actually think the touch is worse now

    oh and i just saw the fix for it XD *DOH!* I would guess that i would have to reinstall it and restart my computer?

    EDIT: okay, i did that, and set the touch jump to 300, and its still not very precise, but it does follow the speed of my finger better. I'm going to set it to 1500 and see what happens.

    EDIT part 2: I changed it to 1500, reinstalled, rebooted, and i accidentally logged into my brother's account due to a lazy mis-click. the touch works perfectly in there, but on mine the change from 300 to 1500 is pretty much unnoticeable, it still jumps around too much

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    Now that's interesting. First I've heard that touch is different in different accounts on the same system.

    I think Chris meant try a range of about 300 to 600, not 1500, but I'm not sure. Be interesting to try 300, or close to, and see if touch is still good in your brother's account.

    Anyway it suggests that there's a difference between the two accounts, either in app.s or preferences that's causing the difference. I guess I'd look into mouse and touchpad preferences and .conf files.
