I thought that when the kernel is compiled the wacom.ko file is created??

I noticed that the launchpad site still has wacom files available.
Maybe debian linux still has files available?? I can't see any.

If you knew how to change the recipe then it might work???
'the recipe' is a text file that the compiler uses. It give paths and options.

Hi don570,

I miss time these days to try to give an exhaustive answer.

As I do not know on which Puplet you got this (kernel? 32 or 64 bits...?) in a first time you might ignore the pet I made and revert to the original state. Just try keeping the 69-wacom.rules present in the pet I made (it is in fact identical to earlier wacom.rules).
I assume you are aware that wacom.rules only creates one or two wacom symlinks in /dev/input/ in order the tablet to be recognized by xorg (Inside xorg.conf, the wacom devices related codes have the code "/dev/input/wacom").
If "/dev/input/wacom" is not present while the tablet is connected, just unplug it, wait 5 seconds (the time for the event manager to react) and plug it again. The the "/dev/input/wacom" should be created. If not, the wacom.ko is the culprit.

Otherwise you would have to replace that "/dev/input/wacom" by the right "/dev/input/eventX" X is a number from 1 to 9 which you can find by reading the content of /proc/bus/input/devices, in the paragraph related to the wacom tablet, at the end of the line having "H: Handlers....event8" as an example.

A lot about all this has already been documented in the present thread.
Also usefull to read is the
https://sourceforge.net/p/linuxwacom/bugs/358/ and others about some bugs and fixes. There are some "xsetwacom" line commands described usefull to know more about the wacom tablet.

HTH
Charlie

I am using the standard stretch 7.5 installed frugally.
4.9.101 kernel
I was able to compile xf86-input-wacom, but I can't get xorg driver to be recognized.

I will read your post and git instructions and try again.


I tracked down the instructions on git
https://github.com/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom/wiki/Configuring-X

Look under Static xorg.conf Setup

or

Fixed device files with udev
