There are actually two drivers

1) kernel
2) Xorg

The kernel driver is built into the puppy distro.
The Xorg driver has to be installed. (Although some distros have
it built-in as well such as Porteus and Ubuntu)


Google 'wacom + driver + linux'

Bonjour don570,
Thanks for info.
Done!
It works perfectly for me, running Puppy Precise 5.7.1. The pet package is too big (304 ko) to be uploaded on the forum. So, for those who are interested in, xf86-input-wacom-k3.9.11-0.24.0.pet is available from the Arrow ToOpPy site repository.

Cordialement.

Hi don570 and all,

here are two xf86-wacom-input drivers download links, both compiled on wheezy-3.5.2.11:
the one is earlier version 0.17;
http://www.datafilehost.com/d/9719651c
this 0.17 runs OK here and ensures smooth cursor motions;

the second is the latest 0.24;
http://www.datafilehost.com/d/3a57b4fc
since version 0.18 (which has been told as "buggy"), i cannot get further versions working as nice as the 0.17 ! Crying or Very sad

Till now... keeping living with 0.17... Cool

I already reported it in earlier posts (around page22): whtever "relative" or "absolute" mode", the cursors arrow runs away to the above left screen corner once the stylus is lifted far away from the pad. I believe the cursor should stay were it has been left then, as it is the case on drivers up to 0.17.
All this using various tablets as Graphire1 , Volito1 and MTE450 (Bamboo) on desktops and laptops.

Do you get such a similar behaviour?

I reported this to wacom projects developper who could not reproduce it.

Thanks for eventual report !

Cheers,
Charlie

To Charlie .....

My Bamboo tablet has been working fine except Windows XP Rolling Eyes
where there's a bug that forces me to re-install
the driver from time to time.

There may be something wrong with my precise pet package that
I have listed. Did I leave out my script?? I'll download and check at home.

I recompiled the source in Precise 5.7.1 and here it is

http://www.datafilehost.com/d/87525f21

I'll check Argolance's package to see if it was made correctly.

To post it on this page I will drop an app from the package to
reduce it to 250 kb limit.
