Sub_title: xf86-input-wacom-0.14.0 later driver
 

Hi
xf86-input-wacom-0.14.0 latest driver version
here are some compiled for
Slacko-5.3.1
Dpup-Exprimo 5X14 (k 2.6.39.4)
Dpup-Exprimo 5X.3.2.11 (k 3.2.11)

Important: here I always run xorgwizrad (alt-ctrl-backspace + <Probe> ...etc..) before editing xorg.conf to get the current video card specific dirver activated ...the simplest way...isn't ?

Acknowledgments to Shinobar's included pinstall.sh and don570 compiling tutorial see page14 this thread.

Please test
Also included in the pet:
/etc/X11/wacom_xorgdotconf_bits.txt giving the specific wacom bits to add to xorg.conf; just copy and paste the corresponding xorg.conf sections.

Stylus pressure sensitive works OK: tested on mtpaint 3.44.03 !
Have fun !
Cheers
Charlie

ps:
- all those 3 drivers tested on a fresh boot-up (pfix=ram) + /etc/X11/xorg.conf file edition by addition of the wacom bits + restart X server;
- these drivers are X drivers; no confusion with the kernel driver wacom.ko which is already present in the distro;
- Exprimo: the tablet is already detected and workng «as a mouse» at boot up.
- Tested with Volito1 and Bamboo MTE-450A, both USB tablets.
- tip: to check if these driver works, you have to get this answer doing in a console:
Code:
# xsetwacom --list
stylus                             id: 8   type: STYLUS   
eraser                             id: 9   type: ERASER   
cursor                             id: 10   type: CURSOR   
pad                                id: 11   type: PAD       
#

(last edited:) or
Code:
# xsetwacom --list
stylus           STYLUS   
eraser           ERASER   
cursor           CURSOR   
pad              PAD

charlie6. Some of your pets has stuff in /usr and some in /usr/local so...the latter wont overwrite-update existing stuff.

I have repackaged all 3 to the exprimo repo.

User review

I got great results with the following Laughing


I tested squeeze-5.X.3.1.10.2-SCSI.iso
with Charlie6's xf86-input-k.3.2.11-wacom-0.14.0.pet
that I got from this thread

.... and it worked beautifully!!

I didn't have the problems that I experience with Lucid Puppy.

i.e. not problems with a black screen when I make a Pupsave file
and there was no persistency problems.

Hello,
Did all what I could to make my Wacom Graphire3 working with the latest releases of Racy (5.2.2, 5.2.8, 5.2.9 and finally 5.3...): I have unfortunately to guess I didn't succeed! Embarassed Has somebody any idea?

Thank you so much!

Cordialement.

Did you use barry Kauler's wacom pet package?
See page 12
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/linuxwacom-0.8.8-10-w5.pet

It worked for my wacom bamboo when I tried it months ago.

Use the instructions on the first page!!

I always use the following to get the driver recognized.
Code:
depmod
modprobe wacom


Then restart X

Hello,
Thank you for answering!
This is exactly what I did: I installed Barry's pet, copied/pasted indicated lines in my Xorg.conf file.
Console:
Quote:
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so: /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so: undefined symbol: xf86GetMotionEvents
(EE) LoadModule: Module wacom does not have a wacomModuleData data object.
(EE) Failed to load module "wacom" (invalid module, 0)
(EE) No input driver matching `wacom'
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so: /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so: undefined symbol: xf86GetMotionEvents
(EE) LoadModule: Module wacom does not have a wacomModuleData data object.
(EE) Failed to load module "wacom" (invalid module, 0)
(EE) No input driver matching `wacom'
Crying or Very sad
My wacom mouse and stylet are not dead and are "well" recognized but the cursor move doesn't reach corners or bottom or top of the 1920x1200 desktop Mad as I can easily do it with Puppy 4.31 and even with Puppy 5.2.2!

Cordialement.

undefined symbol probably means that the xorg xorg_server version has changed since wary 094 time.

-----> /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so

There is need to recompile the wacom xorg driver in recent wary.

I would have gladly done but don't know how to do it? Perhaps if I knew where to find the source files, could I try ?
Thanks.

Cordialement.

Hello,

If this isn't good enough for you, you can either head over to the Linux Wacom Project and compile your own driver...
Shocked
Quote:
or you can post here and tell me which version of the kernel you need the driver compiled for and I'll do it as soon as I get a chance.
Smile
Is it complicated? May we wish a very small tutorial to try to do it ourselves?
Racy 5.3 (Xorg 7.6 and kernel 3.0.25).

Thank you!

Cordialement.

Saluki uses kernel 3.2.13 ???

The method I would use is to take the driver out of the closest
package that Charlie6 has compiled

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=53592

and put it in Saluki . Then I would use my method of putting
a pet package together which is described here

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=512482#512482

I'll try to do this and report back on Saturday.
