First of all, Thanks PizzasGood for the new drivers. The experimental version works under Puppy 4.2.1 with the Bamboo Pen.

The only minor annoyance is that if the tablet is unplugged it's gone until a reboot. Restarting X does not help. In fact, if you try to cat the device the console hangs. If you are not running X, then you have to reboot.

I know that hot-plugging is not supported, and I'm fine with restarting X, but having to reboot, and a hanging console when listing the devices points to some kind of more serious fault.

One clue may be that I can plug in the tablet *after* X has started (on the first boot up). The tablet does not need to be plugged in at boot time, or even before X starts. But when removed there's a problem. When first plugged in there's a message from the system that a new device has been recognized (dmesg? cannot remember). When removed there is no system message.


Any ideas what the cause may be?

Nope. I honestly don't know much about kernel stuff.

One idea you might try is to unplug the tablet, kill X, run rmmod wacom, and then do modprobe wacom to reload the driver. Then start X and try plugging in the tablet. I don't know if that will help.

EDIT: On my system using one of the older drivers (I don't remember which one I installed last) I do get a message when unplugging my tablet and another when I plug it in again, so it does sound like something isn't quite right on your end.

Thanks pizzasgood

Had some trouble getting it going but the xorg needed,

To enable the Wacom device, open /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add the following to the
ServerLayout section:

*Code:*
Section "ServerLayout"
[keep whatever is currently there and add]
InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection



The following is for TabletPCs because the device is serial.

*Code:*
Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "cursor"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "Type" "cursor"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
Option "Button2" "3"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "stylus"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
Option "Button2" "3"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "eraser"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "Type" "eraser"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
Option "Button2" "3"
EndSection

Subject description: how to get /dev/imput/wacom file ?
 

Hi Pizzasgood !
many thanks for those pets !

LAST EDITED: I got it working ! Yessss...!
...BUT...one question remains...
I could not get /dev/input/wacom automatically created by /etc/udev/rules.d/65-wacom.rules (...maybe missed something?)
So it could'nt work anymore upon a different USB connexions configuration.

What I did:
manually copied as symlink /dev/event5 into /dev/input and renamed it as /dev/input/wacom;

Another point:
Xorg has rebuilt its original version upon each X restart preventing the use of the edited xorg.conf with the wacom bits: the cause was TRIVIAL:
I copied the "Server Layout" section as follows:


Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
            Identifier     "Default Layout"
            Screen 0 "Screen0"   0 0
            InputDevice    "Mouse0"    "CorePointer"
            InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
            InputDevice    "stylus"    "SendCoreEvents"
            InputDevice    "eraser"    "SendCoreEvents"
            InputDevice    "cursor"    "SendCoreEvents"   # For non-LCD tablets only
           InputDevice    "touch"     "SendCoreEvents"    # Only a few TabletPCs support this type
#InputDevice    "pad"   # For Intuos3/CintiqV5/Graphire4/Bamboo tablets
EndSection


Looking in xorg.conf it appeared that the # did not comment the lines (as they were not grey coloured) - I had just to delete the comments to get Xorg accepting the new edited file.


Hi Pizzasgood !
many thanks for those pets !
on turbopup xtreme v1.0 (i.e. Puppy 4.20 k2.6.25.16)
I'm currently using a wacom graphire1 tablet as a mouse just by having loaded the wacom module through the "boot manager".

After having unloaded that wacom module and restarted the PC, I installed the wacom-0.8.4-4-k2.6.25.16.pet only and followed the steps 1. to 6. in this thread.
After doing depmod and modprobe wacom in a console, the cursor and stylus are working.

Restarting xorgwizard causes to get xorg.conf back to its previous unmodified version (modified according to step 4). The modified version is put into xorg.conf.bak after restarting Xorg.

I did not find any /dev/input/wacom file present after installation, even after making /etc/udev/rules.d/65-wacom.rules executable.

How could I get it? This file is mentionned under the "Section "InputDevice"" added lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Many thank for any answer
Cheers
Charlie

Odd. To be honest I don't know very much about udev. I guess the first thing to check would be whether udev is even running in your version of Puppy. If you run the following command you should see it listed as "udevd":
Code:
ps -eo comm | sort
(note: that '|' character is a pipe, not a capital 'i' or lowercase 'L'. On a US keyboard, the pipe character is the shifted version of the backslash '\' key, between 'Backspace' and 'Enter'.)

There might be more than one instance of udevd listed, that's fine. If you don't see udevd at all, maybe it got disabled or killed somehow. In that case, try starting it by hand to see what happens:
Code:
udevd --daemon

Then unplug and plug in the wacom. If this works, you could add that line to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file to have it automatically run on bootup.

If udevd is running, then I'm not sure what the issue is. Maybe try looking at the output of the dmesg command and the file /var/log/messages to see if there's anything suspicious. In particular, try booting with the wacom unplugged, glance through the output of dmesg, especially toward the end, and then plug in the wacom and check dmesg again. You should see some new messages show up at the end of dmesg after plugging it in. They might give you some hints as to what's wrong.

Hi Pizzasgood, thanks again for you help and quick answer !
1.
Quote:
....If you run the following command you should see it listed as "udevd":
Code:
ps -eo comm | sort

udevd is present in the list

2.
Quote:
....try starting it by hand to see what happens:
Code:
udevd --daemon


got this:
Code:
# udevd --daemon
error initializing udevd socket

I cannot figure out what it means.
...but I am not experienced enough to understand what it means...

[note: As my turbopup is a custom-home-french-remastered version maybe I should have to check what happens on a pure Turbopup live-cd install.]

LAST EDITED: Got it nominaly working !
More details hereafter.
1. On a Turbopup-Xtreme-v1.0 live-cd session, checked if udevd is running by doing
Code:
ps -eo comm | sort
: not running;
doing
Code:
# udevd --daemon
#
get it running
doing it a second time answers

Code:
# udevd --daemon
error initializing udevd socket

if doing
Code:
# killall udevd
#
then udevd is no longer running.
doing again
Code:
# udevd --daemon
#
starts udevd;
if doing it a second time then
Code:
# udevd --daemon
error initializing udevd socket
answers the same error

So it seems quite right to get an error message if udevd is already running

2. On the same Turbopup-Xtreme-v1.0 live-cd session, have installed wacom-0.8.4-4-k2.6.25.16.pet only; and copied the wacom bits (copied from the xorg.conf already previously edited on the frugall install).
3. have disconnected and aftrwds reconnected my Graphire1-wacom-usb-tablet;
4. looked inside /dev/input/...there is that wacom symlink present ...Yeah!
5. restarted X
6. checked mouse and stylus: nicely working !

7. Then I rebooted on my custom frugall Turbopup:
Have
Code:
# killall udevd
#
and deleted the /dev/input/wacom symlink earlier manually created; did
Code:
#udevd --daemon
#
and aftrwds redo the above 3.and 4 steps: and YESS! got /dev/input/wacom symlink automatically created.
Aftrwds completed 5. and 6. steps...OK!




Thanks for any idea.
Cheers
Charlie

Subject description: using a wacom Volito ( i.e. Volito 1 )
 

Hi,
Once again "thanks Pizzasgood".
(again on a remasterized french-home-customized-Turbopup-Xtreme-v1.0 frugall);
wacom-0.8.4-4-k2.6.25.16.pet installed;
Now with a Volito 1 tablet USB connected ;
I remained a bit puzzled: once all steps given in page 1 were done, only the cursor did not work properly: when moved on the tablet the cursor displayed sporadic motions of the arrow; but if lifted about 5mm and moved ...keeping ±constant ...that 5mm gap, then it worked ... very ennoying to use it that way...!.
Looking at the Wacom pages, found this:
Quote:

Option "CursorProx" "number"
sets the max distance from tablet to stop reporting movement for cursor in relative mode. Default for Intuos series is 10, Graphire series (including Volitos) is 42.


Solution:
edited xorg.conf and added this line
Code:
      Option        "CursorProx" "100"

to get this
Code:
 ...
Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "cursor"
      Driver        "wacom"
      Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "cursor"
      Option        "USB" "on"
      Option        "CursorProx" "100"
EndSection
...


(I got no result with "42" value - after "cut and try" got the cursor working with "100" - why 100 ? maybe should one try other values ???)

Note : the stylus works; eraser do not as the Volito 1 is not featured with eraser.
Cheers
Charlie

first of all my thanks and respect to all you guys involved in development wacom drivers for puppy. it worked great for me until recently.
but now i updated puppeee4.3x derivative to the latest version and drivers don't work anymore (i tried to install drivers fix xorg.conf and rebooted as usual but no desired effect - wacom still works like a touchpad) i wonder what's happened and what can be done about it. i'm very unexperienced on linux so not sure what information needed to solve this. (and how to get it)
Below is info i have
Tablet: wacom bamboo
Machine: eee701_4G
OS Puppeee4.3X RC6 (drivers worked on RC3)
Kernel seems 2.6.33.2celeron (i686) (as says hardinfo utility)
(If i got it right) xorg was updated to v.7.6

and some strange line appears in console when i try to modprobe wacom
FATAL: Module evdev not found.

thanks for care to read this ^^' would be glad of any advice

Evdev is builtin to the Puppeee kernel - I'm not sure why it gives that error but the module still loads at least for me.

Try the attached Xorg driver update and see if it works.

well actually eraser still not responds to pressure but thats bearable - i can draw now yay ^__^

UPD: Just mobilized eraser! =-) to get it to work i swapped third and fourth eraser actions in GIMP input-devices preferences

should this driver be added to the main list to make convenience for modern xorg users?

Ok. I will add this driver to the next Puppeee. There's a good chance it will work on Quirky too.

Subject description: (SOLVED )wacom tablet (volito and graphire) working on Quirky-1.20-Firefox-v3.0
 

Hi,
see post here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=432962#432962

on a HP5260 pc with Ge6200 nvidia card:
...eventually got wacom tablets (volito or graphire 1) working on ttuuxxx's Quirky-1.20-Firefox-v3.0 + wacom-0.8.4.4-k2.6.30.5.pet (thanks ttuxxx !);

The tablet was not fully working with xorg.conf default-upon-first-boot set to "vesa" video driver - editing xorg.conf « has no effect »

solution: CTRL-backspace, run xorgwizard and " CHOOSE " the "nv" driver,
run xwin and then apply steps on page 1 this thread.

Again thanks Pizzasgood
your pets prevent me now from some wrist pains !
Cheers, Charlie

Could then "wacom-0.10.7_xorg_driver.pet" work on Lucid 5.X.X or LupuQuickset (both running kernel 2.6.33.2)?
Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi again,
on lupq-508 Quickset (= lucid-5.xx derivative thanks to shinobar)
charlie6 wrote:

Maybe I misunderstood something... ( wacom-xorg-driver running on kernel 2.6.33.2 is not a kernel-adapted-wacom-driver ? ).
I got a try using jeminah's pet + editing xorg.conf (added the wacom bits - just copied and paste the wacom bits from another working puppy4.20+wacom tablet).

results: did not work
- doing
Code:
#depmod
#modprobe
causes cursor to move
- restarting X causes Xorg to stop. Had to boot from live-cd to re-edit xorg.conf to its initial version.

So I would ask to have a lucid adapted wacom-driver as I do not believe I could compile it myselve.

Thanks in advance for any answer.

Cheers, Charlie
