Subject description: Tablet PC
 

Hello everyone and congratulation for this wanderfull site and distro PUPPY.
Im an owner of IBM X41 tablet pc.I wander if there is a puppy version that automatic support wacom active digitizers on tablet pcs.The reason for supporting touchscreens and wacom is the kernel,xorg or just the wacom driver? I'm a beginer and i try the wacom drivers on this forum but i didn't make it.I believe people like me who just want an OS for graphics,sketching,music its dificult to learn the programming part of puppy for example compiling,xorg config etc.So i believe puppy next versions should support automatic hardware detection like ubuntu 12.10.Ubuntu support my x41 tablet and touch screen works well.But puppy linux is ultra fast and if there is a automatic touchscreen support it would be perfect for me.[/b]

A couple of people have successfully gotten a tablet computer to work
with a wacom driver.
Read HERE for some experiences





The secret is to use 'wacom_w8001.ko'
and just ignore 'wacom.ko'

If you look at thread
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=16491
which has lots of packages available, the ones made by
Charlie6 have 'wacom_w8001.ko' inside the package, so I
would install one of those. But Charlie6 has made pet packages
for only a few puppy variants.


But some puppies already have 'wacom_w8001.ko' installed
and it might work???

Here's an xorg.conf published that may be useful
