So I got my CTH 460 (pen & touch) working fine by following these instructions http://gutsywww.ubuntuforums.org/sho....php?t=1515562 (thanks Favux for the marvellous How To btw) and all was good with the world.
Then I turned my laptop on without having the wacom plugged in and the next time I plugged the tablet in, it didn't work. So I did a bit of digging and figured that this was due to hotplugging issues because I'm using the xorg driver. Since trying to fix this I have also run an update so my kernal version has changed, which has made the situation even more difficult.
xinput --list returns no wacom info at all but the tablet shows up under lsusb.
the xorg conf file is still in place and the wacom module still appears under /etc/modules so I guess it's still loading
however, my xf86-input-wacom directory has disappeared and when I tried just ripping it all out and starting from scratch the instructions above fail at this point because the rebuild doesn't build this directory. Anybody know how to get around or fix this?
can anybody give me any ideas on what to try to get this working again please? and is it possible to get it working so that I can unplug it without going through this every time? If this has been covered before could someone point me to the link please?
system: acer aspire 5315, lucid lynx, kernal version 2.6.32-24-generic
tablet: CTH 460 wacom bamboo pen & touch
any help would be greatly appreciated
