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

    Hi Favux,

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I tried
    ./configure --prefix=/usr and it worked but produced this error:

    ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.
    include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.
    Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.

    I'm unsure if this is the actual error, but it looked like a good place to start. As per the instructions for the forums, I haven't quoted the entire output here, but enclosed it in an attachment.

    Thank you

    Hi talondrew,

    I duplicated your results in Oneiric. So it looks like there is an autoconf entry in include missing. I'll look into that further i.e. probably ask Chris.

    Meanwhile go ahead and clone the input-wacom git repository as per appendix 1. There haven't been any new commits since 0.12.0 came out so they're still the same thing.


    Edit: Never mind, Chris fixed it for us so ./configure --prefix=/usr will work now and generate the wacom.ko.

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

    Ok, so I have tried two things with no luck.

    First - I did as you asked and tried the entire first set of actions to generate the wacom.ko. With the command:

    sudo cp ./2.6.38/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/wacom.ko

    I got this error:

    cp: cannot stat `./2.6.38/wacom.ko': No such file or directory
    I tried the command located within the output after the wacom.ko is generated:
    cp 2.6.38/wacom.ko /lib/modules/2.6.38-13-generic/kernel/drivers/input/tablet and got the same result.

    I have attached the output (output1.txt).
    Second - I attempted to clone the input-wacom git repository as per appendix 1.
    This process seemed to work perfectly. After reset, there was no change to the behaviour of the tablet - still unable to do anything with it.

    My output for:
    lsmod | grep wacom

    is:
    wacom 36589 0

    Thank you!

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

    I don't have a Natty partition to test in but it works fine for me in Oneiric.
    cp: cannot stat `./2.6.38/wacom.ko': No such file or directory
    Cannot stat means there was no wacom.ko in the 2.6.38 folder to copy. Looking at your output I wonder if you did a fresh download of the tar so you got the fix when redoing part I.? You don't show that so all I see is you extracting a tar package which could be the old pre-bug fix tar I suppose.

    The cloning sounds like it went well and I assume you were able to copy the newly compiled wacom.ko into place. Did you remember to reboot? The lsmod does show a wacom.ko has auto-loaded.

    What is the output of these terminal commands?
    Code:
    xinput list
    and
    Code:
    xsetwacom list

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

    I did do a fresh download ( i just cropped the .txt file because it went over the maximum alloted for a .txt on the forums )

    Unfortunately, rookie mistake, I hadn't deleted the old .tar.bz2 so I was working with the incorrect version. This has now been fixed, and the wacom.ko has been copied correctly, so it seems.

    Here is the output of the commands you gave me:

    andrew@andrew-netbook:~$ xinput list

    andrew@andrew-netbook:~$ xsetwacom list
    andrew@andrew-netbook:~$

    Even after reboot, no response from Bamboo tablet.

    No worries. We all do stuff like that. Or at least I do all the time.

    By any chance did you install Wacom drivers from a PPA when you were using the graphire?

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

    Yes, I probably did. If not, I downloaded something like wacom-dkms from a ppa in an attempt to get this tablet working.

    Do I have to remove them? If so, how do I go about that?

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

    I'm reading about something called ppa purge. Would you recommend that as a strategy to remove the wacom-dkms (and whatever else might be causing a problem?)

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

    Right, if you have dkms implementation of the wacom.ko it is overwriting your newly compiled wacom.ko that would work with the old non-working wacom.ko.

    First try uninstalling the PPA through say Synaptic Package Manager and see if that does the trick. If not try to find the link to the PPA so we can try to figure out the dkms uninstall command. You do not want to manually uninstall a dkms, believe me. If there is a dkms you should see a folder saying something about Wacom in /usr/source.

    HERO!

    Well, you did it. I un-installed the wacom-dkms using synaptic. I also uninstalled basically everything else that said "wacom" except for the xorg stuff. After reboot, the tablet is responding!

    I'm going to play around with it in GIMP, but it is at least working fine (both pen and touch are working).

    Do you know if there is a GUI utility to setup the button configuration, sensitivity, etc?

    Thank you so much. I use the tablet a lot for my work, and I have been without one for a week now. It's been a challenge. Now I'm good to go again.
