Puppy Linux and Tablet PC 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
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???
When i have time and IF it gona work i will post reply.
I d also like to say that i test lightpup 5.00f and everything works perfetct for ibm x41tablet(you deed to change to 3rd option of video drivers force xorg-vesa and set video resolution to 1024x768) expept for wifi drivers ( when i scan wifi finds my router,but when i save my wifi profile and try to use it nothins happen)and when i want to she movies with greek subs,when i change the region nothings hapen.Probably a font problem or need of code?
