EDIT: I checked this on the final version of precise as well as beta versions

I was able to compile successfully for the oldyeller precise distribution.

It works for two kernels amazingly, perhaps because I don't put
wacom.ko inside the pet package. Laughing

I tested xf86-input_k.3.6.2-dpup-wacom-0.17.0.pet driver
in latest exprimo and it worked well except that when I rebooted
my machine I had to set up mtpaint pressure preference again.

____________________________________________________

I noticed that in /etc/X11/ there is a file in charlie's pet package
that explains how to make xorg.conf file.
I made my server layout look like this...


Code:

Section "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     "X.org Configured"
   Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
#from kernel 2.6.35 and later the "SendCoreEvents" after InputDevice is no longer required
   InputDevice    "stylus"
    InputDevice    "eraser"
    InputDevice    "cursor"
    InputDevice    "pad"      
EndSection




and then inserted the input device descriptions
Code:


Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "stylus"
      Driver        "wacom"
      Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "stylus"
     Option        "USB" "on"
     Option        "Mode" "Absolute"
      Option        "AlwaysCore" "on"
      Option        "Speed" "1.3"
      Option        "Threshold" "5"
      Option        "CursorProx" "5"
#     Option        "Speed" "5"
#     # Option        "ForceDevice"   "ISDV4"               # Serial Tablet PC ONLY
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "eraser"
      Driver        "wacom"
      Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "eraser"
      Option        "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "cursor"
      Driver        "wacom"
     Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "cursor"
      Option        "USB" "on"
#     Option        "CursorProx" "100"
     Option        "Speed" "1.3"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "pad"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "pad"
    Option         "USB" "on"
#   Option         "SendCoreEvents" "false"
    Option         "ButtonsOnly" "on"   
#    Option         "Button9" "2"
#    Option         "Button13" "3"
    Option         "Mode" "Absolute"   
EndSection

# if you have a touch pad just uncomment the next section

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "touch"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "touch"
    Option         "USB" "on"
 EndSection

Hi Don, I saw your comment about the xorg tutorial embedded in Charlies pet file and wondered if there is any chance of you posting just that info somewhere? (I don't yet know how to extract one component from a pet and I haven't trialled Exprimo yet)

I'll post it next week.

The official instructions to modify the xorg.conf file are HERE

I only mentioned this new file because it had some new instructions inside.

By the way you can get inside a pet package with this command
but it destroys the original pet package so use a copy.

Code:
 pet2tgz  /path/to/package


I always drag the pet package to /root
so the command is

Code:
pet2tgz  /root/xf86-input_k.3.6.2-dpup-wacom-0.17.0.pet


Then just click on the archive to open it.
Some puppies have a right-click option to do all this work automatically.

Thanks Don - I just gave the pet2tgz a try and am happy to have learned a new trick. That will be useful. cheers.

Here's the instructions. I used them for Exprimo.

Remove gz extension.

PostPosted: Tue 04 Dec 2012, 19:58    Post_subject: Wacom serial Digitizer II on Puppy 5.2.8 (Lucid)
Sub_title: How do you edit the xorg.conf?
 

I have followed this thread with great interest, reading and rereading it. But, I still do not understand how to get a working edit into the xorg.conf. It does not have the ServerLayout section no matter how many times it is deleted and Puppy rebooted. When edited to include the ServerLayout and other items for the Wacom tablet, X refuses to use the file and will not start without running the Xorg wizard. xorg.conf always returns to this content:
Code:
#Special base config file used in Puppy Linux.

# **********************************************************************
# Module section -- this  section  is used to specify
# which dynamically loadable modules to load.
# **********************************************************************
#
Section "Module"

# This loads the DBE extension module.

    Load        "dbe"     # Double buffer extension

# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension
    EndSubSection

# This loads the font modules
#    Load        "type1"
#    Load        "freetype"

# This loads xtrap extension, used by xrandr
#   Load       "xtrap"

# This loads the GLX module (if present). xorg 7.4/5 need explicit disable to disable...
    Load    "glx" #LOADGLX

# This loads dri module (if present). 7.4 loads it by default, have to disable...
   Load       "dri" #LOADDRI
#    Disable "dri"

EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# Files section.  This allows default font paths to be set
# **********************************************************************

Section "Files"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (which are concatenated together),
# as well as specifying multiple comma-separated entries in one FontPath
# command (or a combination of both methods)

    FontPath   "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/X11/fonts/TTF/"

EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# Server flags section.
# **********************************************************************

Section "ServerFlags"

# Uncomment this to disable the <Crtl><Alt><Fn> VT switch sequence
# (where n is 1 through 12).  This allows clients to receive these key
# events.

#    Option "DontVTSwitch"

# Enables mode switching with xrandr
# There is a report that this can cause Xorg not to work on some
# video hardware, so default is commented-out...
# but i want to use it in xorgwizard so leave on...

    Option "RandR" "on"

# With this, Xorg won't talk to HAL to add evdev devices and you'll be back
# with the old Xorg behavior (pre-7.4)...

    Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"

# For no-Hal, kirk also suggests this...

#    Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "true"

# Xorg 7.4, Ubuntu Jaunty, CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE is disabled by default...

    Option "DontZap" "false"

EndSection

#everything past here is auto-generated by Puppy's Xorg Wizard...


   

#PuppyHardwareProfile=NVIDIAX193W

If anyone can clear my thinking on this, I would be so grateful.

I'm reading your xorg.conf

Option "RandR" "on"


Just a guess ---> try commenting out the line


I would try Barry Kauler's Wary or Racy distributions since they
are the most compatible with wacom

For anyone with a hard drive installation of Puppy 5.2.8 and a Wacom Digitizer II (also Artz II) serial graphics tablet and following this thread, here is an update.

The xorg.conf can be constructed with a ServerLayout section that will persist through rebooting. I have one working now. I also have wacdump and xsetwacom working. They show that all the functions of the tablet can be communicated with the computer running Puppy 5.2.8. The two Wacom kernel drivers included in Puppy 5.2.8 are: 1) for the USB connected graphics tablet and 2) for a tablet PC. Currently I'm working on compiling the kernel driver against the 2.6.33.2 kernel. The 'close-to' kernel versions that I've tried yield an "invalid module" response.

Hi hotdog,
- about section ServerLayout:
maybe you have already found that you need (=must !) to run Xorgwizard for your PC + screen configuration to get that section made in xorg.conf.

- use of wacom tablet needs two drivers: a kernel one; + a Xorg one (sorry if you are already aware);

- does the kernels wacom driver need to be compiled?
Quote:
So, as told in the old linux-wacom-project
website from kernel later than 2.6.35, and X server from version 1.7, only the xf86-input-wacom driver needs to be compiled.

- 1. does your distro comes with a wacom.ko kernel driver, doesn'it? Or maybe do you need a more up to date driver ...i don't know anything about it.
- 2. type in a console
Code:
Xorg --version
if 1.7 or above you might only need compiling the Xorg xf86-input-wacom driver.

- for compiling the wacom Xorg input driver ( ! not the kernel driver), and making a pet do read don570's and shinobar's posts inside this thread (somewhere around page 14 and following; also prefer using «make install DESTDIR=path_to_directory_to _make_the_pet_from» to populate that directory - otherwise the pet comes with missing files which are actually installed in the system rather than in the pet)

- if reading across linuxwacom website pages, you will that version 0.18.0 of xf86-input-wacom needs a fix. So prefer another version.

hope this helps a bit
