Hi everyone. I recently installed Puppy on my HP Compaq TC1100, basically because it's too slow to run anything else. I've looked through the "How To" topic on Wacom tablets, but I can't seem to get mine to work. I was wondering if someone could guide me through setting it up? I've some experience with Linux and the Linux terminal, but obviously not enough to solve this by myself.

My first problem is that puppy doesn't seem to be aware of it:

Code:

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Two questions... Did you get xorg server to work?? ie
boot up your computer to the desktop and
Did you create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with an Xserver entry?

I don't think that anyone has ever gotten a tablet computer to
ever run properly, but it might be possible to make it respond
to the pen. With Ubuntu Linux I believe it has been done.

I think that you would need to compile the wacom driver
expressly for you computer though. Charlie6 did the compiling for
Slacko and I took the driver to make a pet package.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=592466#592466

Compiling a driver is fairly complicated, but it involves downloading
the kernel source for your puppy distribution and the
devx SFS as well. It's not something that I know much about.
Here's an explanation of compiling a video driver. Compiling
a Wacom driver is the same I suppose??? You'll have to read on
the forum further.

The wacom.ko driver included with puppy distros doesn't seem to work
with all wacom products.

Charlie's Slacko wacom driver might work. Who knows?
Open up his pet package and get it ( pet2tgz is command)


What I would try is going through the steps that I took
for a pet package in Fluppy, except do it for Slacko instead.

Then I would slip charlie's slacko wacom driver into the
folder just before making the final pet package.

If Charlie's Slacko wacom driver does work on tablet PC's
then your pen should be able to work.

PostPosted: Tue 24 Jan 2012, 15:14    Post subject: ref to Gateway/Motion M1300 tablet computer
Subject description: My M1300 pen/stylus now works
 

Just to clarify:
I inherited a M1300 computer. Can boot to USB drive with Puppy. I've tried for months, off and on, to make the pen work.

Recently posted on this at:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy//viewtopic.php?t=74814

The M1300 touchscreen is a serial device, not a USB device, in case that's of any relevance to you.

In May, 2011, "iteration69" posted his xorg.conf edits that made Lucid work on a TC4200.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=68264

Heroic and helpful user don570 gave some advice:

- 1 - The Wacom driver that is included in Lucid Pup 5.2.x (I am using 5.2.5) is not sufficient to make the tablet work. You need to download a new .pet package and install it.

- 2 - The .pet has two drivers, one called "wacom" and the other called "wacom_w8001". He speculated that the "wacom_w8001" driver may be the one to make the tablet go.

So, I downloaded and installed the .pet that he linked to in his post, then rebooted for good measure.

Opened terminal and typed in the commands:
Code:
depmod
modprobe wacom_w8001


Edit the xorg.conf file per iteration69's description, adding the three "Input Device" sections pertaining to wacom and the two "Server Layout" lines for "stylus" and "eraser".

Re-started the X-server, and applied the stylus to the screen. It worked! Mouse cursor tracks with the stylus, and pressing stylus to the screen acts as a left-click. Pressing the little button on the stylus acts as a right-click.

I did not have to change my rc.local file or anything else. I don't have any way to change screen orientation, but I don't care. I'm happy that it works at all.

If you are able to get your stylus to work using these instructions, please post to the "Gateway M-1300" thread and describe any new insights.

Also, don570 requested that I post success to the "wacom thread". I'll add a note there as well. I may also post to the "TabletPC Digitizer Pen" thread.

[EDIT Jan 25] I can now confirm that this works from a "clean" install of Lucid Pup 5.2.5

Subject description: Got stylus working on my m1400 tablet
 

I have been using Lucid 5.2.5 but wanted to run Slacko on my m1400 tablet. Had some problems so thought I would relate the steps I took. These tablets are serial devices and are set up a little differently than the usb type.

I first varified that the kernel half was included in slacko 5.3.1 by doing the following:

depmod
modprobe wacom

Varified it loaded by:
lsmod | grep wacom

To permanently load the wacom module when booting I edited the following:
/etc/rc.d/MODULESCONF by placing "wacom" in the "ADD" section. (without the quotes)

Then downloaded the wacom driver for slacko 5.3.1 from this post:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=618521&sid=3d0cbca33ff0fd3c2d8b22f17e3bed0e

Installed the pet, restarted X and then modified /etc/X11/xorg.conf from the info on this post:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=68264

Thanks to all who input their experiences with wacom, including Charlie6, danYHKim and Don570

I would have never figured it out by myself!
