... a rebuild of the 4.9.101 kernel for RC-3 appears to generate the wacom.ko module. I don't have a Wacom Tablet to test, but maybe you could download the module and test in your installation of Dpup Stretch 4.9.101. Just remove the fake gz extension below and place the wacom.ko module in the following folder: /lib/modules/4.9.101-stretch/kernel/drivers/hid/

Edit:
Then run: depmod -a
(thanks rcrsn51).


Hi radky and rcrsn51,
will this W-E give a try to it.
Many many thanks to you !
Charlie

Hi don570,

In this thread, Dpup Stretch 7.5 is 32-bit only.

The testing wacom.ko module below was built for the 4.9.101-stretch kernel of RC-3, and should be placed for testing as follows:

/lib/modules/4.9.101-stretch/kernel/drivers/hid/wacom.ko

Hi radky,
the wacom.ko module on page 23 works OK here.
Again many thanks for it and for your time.

I'm a bit disappointed no longer being in the possibility to compile it - it should be a "nice yo have" for next Stretch version Rolling Eyes

Sorry if answering late as I have had it hard to tune my USB Volito tablets xorg.conf parameters to get the tablet properly working...(***)

For info: here using (...among others Cool ) a USB Volito tablet bought by year 2001 Shocked which is still mentionned in wacoms drivers supported models list ( i.e. the first Volito model produced by wacom; there came the "Volito2" afterwards). That list is reproduced in /var/log/Xorg.O.log WHEN xorg.conf is configured for a wacom device (manualy configured).

Best regards
Charlie
(***)Last Edited: (continue) ... but this is not wacom.ko driver dependent; only the xf86-input_wacom driver dependent (i.e. the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so driver which actual version is 0.36.0)
Version 0.36.1 is now available here
https://github.com/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom
which I have made a pet for Kernel-4.9.101 (I will post it tomorrow)

PostPosted: Tue 31 Jul 2018, 00:54    Post subject: pet for xorg wacom driver  

Hi radky,

here is the pet I made for the xorg xf86-input-wacom-0.36.1 driver (i.e. wacom_drv.so which will take place in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so). This version hopefully is intended to fix a bug as described here
https://sourceforge.net/p/linuxwacom/bugs/358/

important:
this pet has a more exhaustive /lib/udev/rules.d/69-wacom.rules which includes the USB connected tablets, in order to create a lynk /dev/input/wacom to the right /dev/input/eventX.
More about this in the thread How to setup a wacom tablet here
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=16491

The Stretchs iso indeed comes whit a 69-wacom.rules only related to serial wacom tablets although Wacom does not produce serial tablets since more than 10 years AFAIK.

Best regards
Charlie

I got a look in Stretchs debian packages: there the wacom.rules are the one on the Stretchs iso. So I am surely missing something about this state. Answer here:

* Drop the old udev rules with all the by-type symlinks, now that XOrg
hotplug actually works we shouldn't need those anymore. Just use the
simpler rules from upstream (after prefixing them with a priority).

This assumes that «...XOrg hotplug actually works ...» ==> Questions:
- do we have a working Xorg hotplug on Puppy-Stretch?
- do we need to configure xorg.conf any longer for wacom tablets? If not, the wacom tablets should be configured using the xsetwacom command, and need write a script having all the desired settings to be placed in /root/Startup (I indeed just went to experience that some wacoms xorg.conf specific settings are inoperant, as also the need to use xsetwacom to get them actually activated).
I believe this to be irrelevant for the present thread, and to be continued in the «How to use a wacom tablet» thread.

HTH, Charlie

I tried modifying my xorg.conf file and all I got was a frozen screen.

I still can't get my machine to recognize the wacom input devices despite
Charlie's pet.

wacom.ko is recognized which is good but xorg isn't recognizing the tablet devices.

First of all, did you got this while running Dpup Stretch 7.5 with kernel 4.9.101?
I believe you might have a syntax typo in your xorg.conf (I also got such a freeze or black screen upon "restart X" after editing xorg.conf).

May I suggest to continue this subject in the «How to setup a wacom tablet» thread.

I've been bumping out against this message each and every time I've needed to install a rather big application (see attachment)

First of all, I'd like to share what I think seems to be the reason my PPM is working oddly: my nvidia drivers Confused

It's widely known since ages the collateral effects nvidia drivers may have on a linux system. I've experimented these 4:

- After installing those drivers, movies I used to watch flawlessly, can't be seen, just heard (Solved. Reinstalling libvdpau1)

- Office suite, FreeOffice2016, ceased working. Now it blows up because of a "segmentation fault" (Solved: Using FreeOffice2018 or WPS Office).

- PPM fails to finish loading on occasions. It dies showing the message “Loading Puppy Package Manager” ad aeternum (or until killed)

And here, number 4:

- PPM can't install software with more than 1 package. Instead it shows a warning for each packet it must install and can't. So I must install package by package.

I tried updating to RC3 (w/ nvidia drivers reinstalled Embarassed ) and the problem persisted, even worsened. Yesterday I made trials in a VM and everything worked flawlessly BUT with no Nvidia drivers.

Note: I must point out nvidia drivers didn't cause this havoc to PPM in Pups based on Ubuntu (however, first 2 were present).

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.137, anyone?

This post is intended to inform just in case someone else meets the same problem.

Now, a question:

Is there any way to install software avoiding PPM in Dpup? Pups like PupJibaro allow to use apt-get and Synaptic. Is this possible in this Pup?

Thx!

charlie6,

As a baseline, the next release of Dpup Stretch 7.5 will include the appropriate wacom.ko kernel module for both isos, generated by updated DotConfig files.

Thanks for the xf86-input-wacom-0.36.1_Stretch_k49101.pet. In the next release I will include the updated 0.36.1 input driver (/usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so), plus the updated /lib/udev/rules.d/69-wacom.rules.

If the xsetwacom utility is also required for proper configuration of wacom tablets in Dpup, your advice will be much appreciated.

---

01101001b,

Thanks for your post concerning potential issues with the Puppy Package Manager (PPM) when used with nvidia graphics, such as failed launching of PPM or inability to install software with more than 1 package.

Unfortunately, I do not have a PC with nvidia graphics for testing. Perhaps others will comment about their success or failure when using PPM with nvidia graphics?

Other package managers such as Synaptic are not supported in this iteration of Dpup Stretch.

Hi Radky,

I installed to a 32gb flash drive:

video-info-glx 1.5.3 Wed 15 Aug 2018 on Dpup Stretch 7.5 Linux 4.9.101-stretch i686
0.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 430] (rev a1)

X Server: Xorg Driver: nvidia
X.Org version: 1.19.2
dimensions: 3840x1080 pixels (1049x292 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes

direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GT 430/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5.0 NVIDIA 390.77

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Core 0: @1603 1: @1603 2: @1603 3: @1603 MHz

I installed the proprietary Nvidia driver first, then updated PPM and installed kodi.

PPM worked okay.
When I compiled the proprietary driver is gave an error "cc version check failed"
saying the kernel was compiled with version 730 and the system is using version 630 of gcc,
I chose to continue and the driver compiled okay.

Updated Palemoon too.

This *might* help... I use it on radkys Stretch, although I also don't have Nvidia graphics...
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1002089#1002089

It's a command line package manager (like apt-get) but has various GUIs and frontends (like Synaptic).. but worse than those..

You can type any of the following in the terminal to load up the various GUIs:

gpkgdialog # gtkdialog frontend

Xpkgdialog # Xdialog frontend

pkgdialog # dialog (ncurses) frontend, also works without X

... Or there are menu entries in Menu->Setup Smile
