Sorry . I don't follow this post closely, Charlie.

I edited my post at the bottom to say that the recent
versions of xf86-input-wacom don't
work so it's important to get a stable
version.

There are lots of versions available at this website
but I used a stable version
xf86-input-wacom-0.10.9.tar.bz2
http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/xf86-input-wacom/

I wonder if the driver is really being compiled???
It seems to use the driver that Puppies
have already installed by default.


By the way you just need devx_xxx.sfs
to do the compiling

I'll check the latest version xf86-input-wacom-0.11.1.tar.bz2

When I tried to compile version 11.1 on Fluppy,
I got this warning. I'm not sure what's going on???
I'll stick with my previous version.


Code:

*** WARNING:
*** Unable to guess kernel source directory
***   Looked at /lib/modules/2.6.35.7/source, /lib/modules/2.6.35.7/build,

Subject description: xf86-input-wacom-0.11.1 driver compiled for Slacko kernel 2.6.37.6
 

Hi don570,
many thanks again for your compiling tutorial !
I got a try on it on slacky 311.37 and got it compiled. Works on later Slackos.
name: xf86-input-wacom-SPup311-0.11.1.pet
Code:
# uname -a
Linux puppypc 2.6.37.6 #1 SMP Sun Jul 10 08:27:28 EST 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
#

And made a pet ...
... download here:
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-bc55bec0.html

Also present in this pet:
- /etc/udev/rules.d/README explaining the choice between two udev ules, the default one used as on the former wacom pets; and the one proposed on the linuxwacom project website (both seem to even work)
- /etc/X11/wacom_xorgdotconf_bits.txt giving the to-be-copied-bits into xorg.conf to get the tablet working

Do not forget to Install the already present kernel wacom.ko driver using the bootmanager and the driver install method (see step-5 don570's «instructions for installing wacom driver in Lucid Puppy» on page 14, as also Pizzasgood's earlier posts).

works nice with mtpaint!
have fun !
Cheers, Charlie

This thread sounds alive, so let me pose a question ... anybody around here got hot-pluggin USB wacom to work? The current situation seems to be, you need to plug the wacom before you start X server (or, if X server is already started, you need to re-start it) ...

This isn't a trick question, I'm looking for an answer myself and if I find it first, I will share with the rest of you.

cheers!

This is how kubuntu did it https://wiki.kubuntu.org/X/InputConfiguration. I haven't gotten it to work yet.

Enable wacom tablet hotpluggin in five easy steps:
1. Your Xorg must be 1.8.0 or higher (how to check: run Xorg -version from terminal). Mine is version 1.9.5.
2. You must have recent xkeyboard config that supports evdev (here: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/XKeyboardConfig). Mine is version 2.1
3. You must have recent udev (need input_id and 60-persistent-input.rules). Mine is udev 166
4. You must 50-wacom.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d (if you don't have it, get it from linuxwacom site here: http://linuxwacom.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom;a=blob;f=conf/50-wacom.conf;h=b1742bceb0f0abb033306adf68d4854ef438b288;hb=HEAD
5. Now for the kicker - your Xorg must be compiled with this option turned on: "--enable-config-udev" (how to check: grep "config/udev" /usr/X11R7/bin/Xorg - if it says binary file matches, your Xorg is good).

When this is done - just make sure you don't have
Code:
Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"
anywhere inside your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I'm joking about the "easy" part. It's not Shocked

firstly, thanks for this very helpful thread, it has helped on many occasions.
so.. i thought i'd report 'out of box' function in fatdog 521(64 bit) for my wacom bamboo cte-450 Very Happy .......nearly...just no x-input enabled thus no pressure sensitivity in gimp etc Crying or Very sad ...but this was easily fixed with the ' gtk+-2.18.6-with-xinput-amd64' package in PPM Very Happy i expect this will be included ie gtk will be compiled with xinput--enable, in the future.

PostPosted: Sun 06 Nov 2011, 21:06    Post subject: No Joy Slacko Toshiba Tecra M7 Wacom  

Hi, I've been using Lucid Puppy Quickset with much joy on this Wacom touch screen enabled laptop. Wacom-0.10.8_xorg_driver and my partial xorg.conf follows below.

In my Slacko edition, I've tried this same xorg.conf with a few of the pets listed in this thread, nothing I do seems to bring joy in response to the pen.

Would really like to use Slacko (Looks Awesome!) but my tablet functionality is a deal breaker for me. Has anyone got a Wacom pen-tablet setup using the latest Slacko Puppy?

FWIW, I'm at the .pet level for installation. Please remember your artist friends who sketch on-screen! Any assistance in getting the below xorg configuration running on Slacko would be appreciated!

Thanks and best regards,

Joe

PostPosted: Sun 20 Nov 2011, 21:53    Post subject: Uh, anyone interested in helping me out? Kinda quiet in here  

Struggled for another hour with this, getting nowhere.

I understand the Wacom driver is now in the Linux kernel, whereas in my quickset version it was a driver? Did they leave out us folks with old Tablet computers whose Wacom devices are actually serial?

If the latest Wacom code, wherever it resides, specifically doesnt support serial based input devices - and everyone knows this but me - please let me know so I can surrender.

As I said I'd like to use Slacko but my Wacom input, which makes this machine a tablet, is what makes this computer fun to use. I'm using Slacko now to write this. Thanks!

Joe

Hi Joe

I am not much help as I have never experienced a wacom device. However I do have some suggestions.

IN Puppy Package Manager make sure you configure it with the Slackware repo.

In the search box type *wacom. The only hit you will get is xf86-input-wacom-0.10.11. Install it.

there are 3 kernel modules that are wacom related. hid.wacom.ko, wacom.ko and wacom_w8001.ko(k2.6.37.6).

In your lupu install run
Code:
lsmod|grep wacom
in a terminal

You will then see which wacom modules are loaded and what depends on what.

Do a comparison in Slacko.

Any thing lacking then modprobe (in a terminal) each module and dependency missing.

Example:
Code:
modprobe wacom
(leave off the .ko.)

See what happens.

Your favourite search engine may reveal more if you search for issues with Slackware and wacom devices.

Good luck!

PostPosted: Thu 29 Dec 2011, 13:05    Post subject: latest Slacko support  

For people using the latest Slacko distribution

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72805
Fast download here:
ftp://ftp.vcu.edu/pub/gnu+linux/puppylinux/puppy-5.3/

There are two possible wacom packages to use.

The best is probably Charlie's (since it will support serial and USB tablets)
but I put together one as well.

Installation is easy:
1) Just modify xorg.conf (with help from this thread)
2) install pet
3) restart X windows

I'm trying to get the wacom digitizer on my tc1100 to work, but I'm not having much success. I started a new thread about it here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=596483#596483

I've tried following your tutorial, but I can't even get puppy to see the stylus let alone get it to function. Anyone got any ideas?

I was able to get Akita puppy to work with my Bamboo tablet.

Also the beta6 of Akita.
Just follow the instructions on the first page of this thread
because Akita uses an old kernel.
I reported here.

There was some success in installing in a tablet computer
using Lucid Puppy at the following thread. He used the
wacom_w8001 rather than the wacom driver. Both drivers
are inside the pet package that is available for Lucid Puppy.

M1300 tablet computer. Pentium M, "1000 MHz"
512 Mb RAM
