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

    Favux, Thank you once again for being patient and trying to explain things to me, but I think that you may overestimate my competence a little.
    I went back to the first page of this thread and copied the lines into a terminal (scary!) but got as far as the second line in the second box and it told me that it would not do that bit.
    I think that it will be so long Ubuntu, hello Windows within the next 24 hours.

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

    Hi inof8or,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    Actually it is the other way around. The default wacom.ko with Maverick is from linuxwacom 0.8.4-4 I think and the Bamboo P&T models aren't in it. The linuxwacom in the HOW TO is 0.8.8-10 and does have the 5 original model Bamboo P&T's in it. That's why you need to recompile it and copy it over the old wacom.ko the new kernel installed in its new modules directory. Just to make it more fun the new input-wacom-0.10.10-2 now has all 10 Bamboo P&T models so you can use that in Maverick if you want.

    To make it even more fun linuxwacom-0.8.8-11 was just released. I'm not sure what models are in it. The 5 original ones I'm sure. But the tar for it isn't posted yet I think.


    Hi Tanargbob,

    It's not that hard, I promise. Are you talking about the wget command? Maybe the sourceforge download site was down temporarily?

    But you don't have to compile to get your wife's Bamboo Pen working. That's what the two PPA's I link to before Part I. are for. DoctorMO just updated his so that should work for you and your wife.

    I did look at the Martin Owens PPA, but am not sure what a PPA is. It is late at night here now, so in the morning I'll get on the wifes PC and see if I can follow the instructions that he gives.
    You must be a very patient person to take the time to help out idiots like me, but I am grateful for the encouragement. Thank you.

    I have now done the PPA from Martin Owens and told the PC to re-install the files from his PPA.
    It has worked! The Bamboo is now working, not quite the same as before, but the wife tells me that she can work with it as it is now.
    A heartfelt thank you for your help Favux.

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

    Thanks for the welcome favux again your a model forum member. I'm not new though, I forgot my password cause I haven't been on in so long, I went by miniyak previously.

    @Favux If what your saying is true if i do a update on my hp tc4400 tablet with maverick and no pre-existing wacom.ko on it like in the case of my main laptop with lucid, then my bamboo pen should work By default? If so thats Great!

    @tanargbob - If you could link to where you found your solution that would be great. I going to wait to upgrade to the narwhal so having this fix in the mean time would be a big help.

    Hi inof8or aka miniyak,

    Not quite, that will be true with Natty. The default wacom.ko with the Maverick kernel does not support the BambooPTs.

    I link to both PPAs in the HOW TO but here's Martin's and IRIE's again:

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

    My Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) has been working perfectly (using 32 bit Ubuntu 10.04LTS) since installation ½ a year ago until the last kernel update a couple of days ago.
    Since then the LED lights up as usual and the cursor moves with the pen until I tap it on the tablet the first time. After that it only moves when tapping or dragging on the tablet.
    Seems like the same problem that Tanargbob had.
    I have tried to use the PPA from Martin Owens but probably missed something. No success.

    Some system info:

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

    Ok, still no luck for me. I added those PPAs and upgraded wacom-dkms, but xserver-xorg-input-wacom has a dependency synaptic can't find

    Code:
    Depends: xorg-input-abi-11.0  but it is not installable
      Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>=2:1.8.99.905-1ubuntu3) but 2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7.5 is to be installed
    Would I be right in assuming that this dependency is a Maverick package? or is it possible to get it into lucid? Tanargbob & babuloseo are you on Mavrick?

    Upgrading to mavrick might be the simple fix to this but with natty around the corner i would rather wait.

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

    Hi there!

    Favux,
    i've read and followed steps of your HOW TO but my P&T still doesn't work at all. I have Ubuntu 10.10.

    lsmod | grep wacom
    gives me
    wacom 29670 0

    lsusb
    Bus 005 Device 004: ID 056a:00d6 Wacom Co., Ltd
    i followed steps for new models compling linuxwacom. no changes to xf86-input-wacom added since i'm having latest version from git repo.

    and my
    uname -r
    2.6.35-22-generic

    I have almost the same data as niroma do, but xinput --list doesn't show any wacom devices. neither xsetwacom do.
    and of course i'm getting:
    Cannot find device 'Wacom BambooFun 4x5
    running .xsetwacom.sh

    Is there anything I should check?
