Hi don570,
i have this wacom tablet MTE-450 for now

Here using the wacom_drv.so 0.15.0 that comes with wheezy-3.5.2.5:
I have no «touch» Input Section, and the touchring works as yours without it ... Confused
I have the upper left and right buttons acting as go backwards or go forwards in Firefox;
Bottom right button acts as a right click where the cursor is poistionned.
Bottom left button acts a bit like a left click where the cursor is poistionned.

This is my xorg.conf wacom relevant section:
(i havn't done anything special to set it up...)
Quote:
....
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0

To Charlie

I found that I could use your xorg.conf if I made one change...
I commented out one line. ---> relative




_______________________________________________________

I also found that I can make a pinstall.sh script that will change the
text in xorg.conf file to use tablet tools .

This makes installation a lot simpler and faster.

See if you can use this pinstall.sh file in your pet packages.

I've made packages that will work with my Bamboo tablet
Slacko Wheezy and Precise distros. I've put 'mod' in package name
to show that the new pinstall.sh file is inside.

PostPosted: Tue 28 May 2013, 11:59    Post subject: pinstall.sh script for wacom driver package  

This is the final version of pinstall.sh script. It won't modify xorg.conf file
if it already has wacom tools listed in the xorg.conf file.

The benefits are a quick and easy installation of wacom driver in
most puppy distros. Note that screen and mouse section of
xorg.conf is not touched!!

So here is what it does ....

1) It gives xdialog warning to restart X windows

2) /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG is modified by shinobar's method.
This lists the 'wacom' driver so that the puppy operating system
will load the wacom driver automatically when the desktop is formed.


3) It will check to see if the xorg.conf file has previously been changed
to recognize the wacom tools. If it hasn't been changed then
changes are made to make it look like Charlie6's xorg.conf
(shown above). I made one change however ---> option mode "relative"
is commented out.

4) delete my temporary work files in /tmp

Note: that pet packages that use this pinstall.sh file should
have 'mod' in filename so that users will know that this driver package
modifies their xorg.conf file. This is important information to know!!!

I worked on a new driver for Wary 5 (or the French version Wolx)

I posted it on the list above. 'mod' is in file name because I put
my pinstall.sh script in the package. The installation is simple,
because the xorg.conf file is automatically changed. Just a
restart of X is required.

However I had to change four lines in xorg.conf because an older
kernel is used in Wary 5.

I changed the lines
Code:

#from kernel 2.6.35 and later the \"SendCoreEvents\" after InputDevice is no longer required
InputDevice \"stylus\"
InputDevice \"eraser\"
InputDevice \"cursor\"
InputDevice \"pad\" 


to
Code:

#from kernel 2.6.35 and later the \"SendCoreEvents\" after InputDevice is no longer required
InputDevice \"stylus\" \"SendCoreEvents\"
InputDevice \"eraser\" \"SendCoreEvents\"
InputDevice \"cursor\"  \"SendCoreEvents\"
InputDevice \"pad\"  \"SendCoreEvents\"

I'll check the other versions of Precise this weekend.
There's no harm in trying.

Here's how to check:

1) Install pet package
2) restart X
3) launch mtpaint and look under preferences --->
if wacom tools like 'stylus' are listed then the driver has properly
loaded

I tested the new precise kernel and the old package(3.2.44) works
for the new kernel 3.2.48. Laughing

Also I noticed a problem in the packaging of the precise package
----> a desktop file was put in by petget program. I have fixed that.

Hello,
... Does any wacom driver pet package exist for Puppy Precise 5.7.1 (kernel v3.9.11)?
If not, what package could be used instead?
Thanks.

Cordialement.

I believe I've tried xf86-input_k.3.2.44-precise-wacom-mod-0.21.0.pet
on Precise 5.7.1 but I'm not at home now so I'm not 100% certain.

It won't hurt your installation to install the pet package package.
Nothing is removed or overwritten.

It's easy to make a pet package . Just compile the wacom source and
duplicate the structure of my pet package.

This is ok, I will try it!
... but where could I find the right wacom source files?

Cordialement.
