    Slackware 13 (32 bit) and Wacom Bamboo


    I have downloaded and installed this slackbuild linuxwacom (0.8.3_6) (SlackBuilds.org - linuxwacom)

    I have modified /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to enable the wacom driver
    I have modified xorg.conf as suggested on the slackbuild - or rather the wacom project page)

    When I less /proc/bus/usb/devices as root I see

    Code:
    T:  Bus=07 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#=  1 Spd=12  MxCh= 2
    B:  Alloc= 14/900 us ( 2%), #Int=  1, #Iso=  0
    D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=09(hub  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
    P:  Vendor=1d6b ProdID=0001 Rev= 2.06
    S:  Manufacturer=Linux 2.6.29.6-smp uhci_hcd
    S:  Product=UHCI Host Controller
    S:  SerialNumber=0000:00:1d.1
    C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=e0 MxPwr=  0mA
    I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=09(hub  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=hub
    E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   2 Ivl=255ms
    
    T:  Bus=07 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  2 Spd=1.5 MxCh= 0
    D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs=  1

    By going in to /dev/input and listing the contents I can see the device appear as mouse2 when I plug it in.

    modprobe -l | grep wacom produces
    Code:
    kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/wacom_w8001.ko
    kernel/drivers/usb/input/wacom.ko
    lsusb | grep -i wacom produces
    Code:
    Bus 007 Device 002: ID 056a:0069 Wacom Co., Ltd
    Because of the mouse2 thing in /dev/input I changed the xorg.conf so that /dev/input/wacom became /dev/input/mouse2

    The appropriate piece of my xorg.conf
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Driver        "wacom"
        Identifier    "stylus"
        Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/mouse2"    # USB ONLY
        Option        "Type"          "stylus"
        Option        "USB"           "on"                  # USB ONLY
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
        Driver        "wacom"
        Identifier    "eraser"
        Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/mouse2"    # USB ONLY
        Option        "Type"          "eraser"
        Option        "USB"           "on"                  # USB ONLY
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
        Driver        "wacom"
        Identifier    "cursor"
        Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/mouse2"    # USB ONLY
        Option        "Type"          "cursor"
        Option        "USB"           "on"                  # USB ONLY
    EndSection
    
    # This section is for Intuos3, CintiqV5, Graphire4, or Bamboo
    Section "InputDevice"
        Driver        "wacom"
        Identifier    "pad"
        Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/mouse2"    # USB ONLY
        Option        "Type"          "pad"
        Option        "USB"           "on"                  # USB ONLY
    EndSection

    The tablet stubbornly refuses to do anything. Where can I go from here?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Never used a wacom, but here is some good information. Hopefully it will help. I notice some differences in what is described compared to what you have going on in your xorg.conf.

    Interesting read, I added the static xorg stuff and then I find for each input device
    in Xorg.0.log

    EE) Wacom Bamboo1: Top/Bottom area overlaps with another devices.

    It shouldn't be this hard to plug in a graphics table ffs
