    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Great!

    Now I think we have a pretty complete HOW TO for the wacom_serial.ko's if I add that to it. I'd appreciate it when you get a chance if you looked it over for mistakes or any suggestions you might have.

    Still debating on whether I should move the rules to an appendix or just trash them. Same about building xf86-input-wacom. Maybe that should just be a link?

    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Hi Favux,
    But of course, if i can contribute in any way

    In case of roaldfre's driver i think it's better to follow your instuctions than the tokenrove's one because of the insmod, linuxconsoletools and udev rule bits (don't follow wacom_serial5 Readme)

    a) Download and compile the protocol 5 wacom_serial5.ko (Intuos and Intuos2 tablets) - by roaldfre
    - git is not mandatory here, we can follow roaldfre's link and download (via the "button" on right side) the driver from there
    - if using git, maybe make sure people are aware one can "control" where in the computer the repository is going to be downloaded (so one can "cd" appropriately later) :
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/RoaldFre/wacom_serial5.git /path/to/wacomserial5Folder
    where "wacomserial5Folder" is a folder the git command will create and download the driver into
    hum, this could be only confusing perhaps better to point "git --help clone" if finer granularity is needed

    b) Download and compile inputattach
    "(or if you have an Intuos tablet, be sure to add in the snapshot # to wacom_serial5 if using a snapshot)" i found it a bit confusing did you mean something like "in case of wacom_serial5 : patch -p1 < ~/Desktop/wacom_serial5/inputattach.patch"

    For the "inputattach --wacom_iv /dev/ttyS0" perhaps a reminder that this command will automagically do what "sudo insmod ./wacom_serial5.ko" is supposed to do (in case someone wonders after reading tokenrove's instructions )

    would be nice to point out that tablet configuration is done via "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf" file or better via "xsetwacom" commands script

    cheers

    Cool Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    All,

    I have posted the below to RoaldFre's Github issues, reposting here in case anyone else has noticed this:

    I have a serial Intuos2 A4 on Natty. I compiled and installed the module and patched inputattach as detailed here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1780154.

    The tablet is connected to a BrianBoxes serial adapter (legacy-free PC) and it works in XP (and worked in older Ubuntus).

    However on running inputattach dmesg shows the following, repeatedly with in increasing number after serio in the last line.

    [ 126.738363] serio: Serial port ttyS5
    [ 126.758349] input (null): Model string: ~#XD-0912-R00,V1.2-6
    [ 126.758353] input (null): Wacom tablet: Intuos2, version 1.2
    [ 127.756586] input (null): Timed out waiting for tablet to respond with configuration string.
    [ 127.756599] wacom_serial5: probe of serio17 failed with error -5

    I hope you can help.

    Thanks

    Alex

    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Hi Alexcrow,

    First i'm in no way educated enough to give you an adequate answer to your current problem but
    looking at RoaldFre's "wacom_serial5.c" code
    Code:
        /* My Intuos tablet won't respond to a configuration request, so it 
         * seems
         * TODO: Intuos2 does work? Or remove alltogether (seems to be 
         * removed altogether in older code) */
        if (wacom->dev->id.version != MODEL_INTUOS) {
            err = wacom_send(serio, REQUEST_CONFIGURATION_STRING);
            if (err)
                return err;
    
    
            u = wait_for_completion_timeout(&wacom->cmd_done, HZ);
            if (u == 0) {
                dev_info(&wacom->dev->dev, "Timed out waiting for "
                        "tablet to respond with "
                        "configuration string.\n");
                return -EIO;
            }
        }
    
    
        init_completion(&wacom->cmd_done);
    it appears that RoaldFre didn't had an opportunity to test that "feature" on Intuos2 and suggested on comment above to remove it
    so maybe try to comment those lines - 680/698 - in the code and recompile ...
    Code:
    cd wacom_serial5  
    make all  
    sudo cp wacom_serial5.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet  sudo depmod -a
    Again just a wild guess ...

    Just shows why one should always look at the code. Obviously I didn't

    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Hi alexcrow,

    Good looks like firstattempt and you have it working.

    Do you have the XD-0912P?

    Also if you still have the puck/Wacom tablet mouse roaldfre would like feedback on how that is working.

    I'm not sure, dmesg gave me this:

    I think I ended up with two because I was trying to get my airbrush to work. Perhaps it's a bit early for that. But I can tell you that my Cursor - on the underside is written:

    XC-100-00
    S/N: 2HP006942

    works ok apart from the scroll wheel.

    I used to use the following in xorg.conf, but as you can see the natty upgrade commented it all out. If anyone can suggest how to get the airbrush working again if possible I would be most grateful.

    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Alright, we'll go with Wacom Intuos2 A4 0912-R.

    Perfect because in addition to the puck roaldfre needs feedback on the airbrush. Right now the airbrush doesn't work? And that's with it separately on the tablet, not with the stylus or mouse there?

    So there are two things to work on: puck scrollwheel and the airbrush.

    By the way once the airbrush works you should be able to configure it and the stylus separately due to the new input tool serial # capability Alexia Death (Gimp developer) and Peter Hutterer have added to xf86-input-wacom. See the Linux Wacom Project mediawiki HOW TO pages for configuration: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...Category:HOWTO

    Especially:

    Re: HOW TO Set Up a Wacom Serial Tablet in Ubuntu

    Just a quick update, here. I've fixed (removed) that config request in the repository.

    The scrollwheel and airbrush are indeed not implemented yet, but it shouldn't be too hard to get them working as well. I'll have a look at it tomorrow.

    [Edit] Just for the record. You airbrush is not working at all (you don't see the cursor moving when it comes in proximity, can't tap, etc); or it's just the wheel that does not work? The latter is normal, the former is a bit of a bigger issue.
