    Yes, I already had xorg.conf file. It was not blank.

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

    Whew, I thought you broke X and couldn't start your Desktop!

    What is the output of xinput list in a terminal?

    Could you show me your current xorg.conf in /etc/X11? Let's see if we need to change some things. Does your Intuos2 have a Wacom tablet mouse?

    Here is what xinput list gives me :
    Code:

    I don't have a Wacom mouse, just a regular stylus.

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

    Since stylus and eraser aren't showing up in xinput list the tablet isn't on the wacom X driver. That could be because you had two "ServerLayouts" see if this xorg.conf works better. Remember you can restore your back up xorg.conf from the command line you can get to using the recovery mode option.
    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "amdcccle Layout"
        Screen      0  "amdcccle-Screen[1]-0" 0 0
        InputDevice   "stylus"

        Option        "ForceDevice"    "Serial"

    Basically we've added the stylus and eraser line the "ServerLayout" section your proprietary ATI driver "fglrx" gave you and the stylus and eraser sections.

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

    Oh My God !
    It works !
    It's years now that I want my good old serial Intuos2 to work under Linux. You've made it possible.

    Thanks

    There are still a few strange things :

    1 - The buttons on my stylus don't work

    2 - The tablet is pressure-sensitive and it works, but if I press too hard, it reacts as if I don't press at all. Is there a threshold ?

    Outstanding! You have the first protocol V tablet to report success.

    What model is your Intuos2?

    We should be able to fix that. How many side buttons does the stylus have?

    Dreh also reports the same thing. There is a threshold called ClickForce we can play with. This may be a bug in the driver, not the serial part we are adding. That's one of the reasons to try to move up to xf86-input-wacom-0.10.8 like we are trying to do in post #2. There is another pressure fix in 0.10.8 that may help.

    Let's try some diagnostics. Please post the output in a terminal of:
    Code:
    xinput list
    I'm assuming there will be a "stylus" and "eraser" line. If so also run:
    Code:
    xinput list-props "stylus"
    and post that output.

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

    Well, I'm very happy to report success !

    My model is GD-0608-R

    My stylus has 2 clickable zones, but on the same button. Check this image, it'll make more sense :



    Code:

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

    Alright, so far nothing is jumping out at me.

    OK, two side buttons on a rocker switch. Try entering these xsetwacom set commands in a terminal and see if the buttons work:
    Code:
    xsetwacom set "stylus" Button2 "3"
    xsetwacom set "stylus" Button3 "2"
    For more diagnostics let us see if the Xorg.0.log is complaining about something. It is located in /var/log. Since it is big you'll want to compress it by right clicking on it and using Create Archive. Then attach it to your next post with Manage Attachments below.

    Also it would be helpful to have the output of:
    Code:
    udevadm info -a -p $(udevadm info -q path -n /dev/ttyS0)
    Thanks!

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

    If your running the two xsetwacom commands on one line don't. Each should be run as a separate line. Let me look at the Xorg.0.log.

    Also try running:
    Code:
    xsetwacom get "stylus" all
    and posting that output.


    Wow! That's the first serial tablet Xorg.0.log I've seen in a long time. And the first one I've seen from xf86-input-wacom. So I'm going to post the relevant Wacom stuff. Thanks Gizmoatwork!

    So the Xorg.0.log looks clean and without complaints.
