Hello. I'm reading there are all kind of solutions for Kernels 3. xxx.

I'm running puppy lupu 525, Kernel 2.6.33.2 Do I have any chance of installing my Intuos Small in this machine? It would be very helpful to my painful wrist.

Relax, only for reference >> http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

With your device plugged, does Lupu "see" it?
Code:
dmesg | grep -i wacom

Show us this:
Code:
lsusb -vv | grep Intuos

And if this returns anything. I'll need to look over the opening post..
Code:
xsetwacom --list devices

Is this your "Small" item?

Code:
lsusb -vv | grep Intuos

returns nothing....

I've find a file at /etc/X11 "wacom_xorgdotconf_bits" explaining how to modify the xorg.conf file, it seems it was installed by the wacom driver, but when I did that, X crashed, I had to go back to the backup xorg.conf

That opening char can only be *one of two* keyboard choices.

Try again, though this time. And please, only the device in question:
Code:
lsusb -vv

Then, one @ a time now:
Code:
cp /etc/X11/wacom_xorgdotconf_bits /root
gzip /root/wacom_xorgdotconf_bits

Attach the above /root/wacom_xorgdotconf_bits.gz file with your reply.

==

And what you should probably do in the meantime is look over the opening post.

It appears someone there's done most of the investigative work for'ya!

Output, just the wacom plugged to teh computer, no other usb device
Code:
# lsusb -vv
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001

If this is your device, you may need a pup with a newer kernel than Lucid.

Code:
056a:0026
PTH-450    
Intuos5 touch (S)       
Kernel 3.5 or better    
Input-wacom v2.6.30† << Touch features of tablet unavailable prior to 2.6.38

Is that an old box that would struggle to run a current pup?

==

Run and post the output here:
Code:
xsetwacom --list devices

That's my device, A Wacom Intuos Touch, PTH-450.

I really wanted to use my actual distro, but seems it's not compatible. It's a shame to replace a whole OS because a new peripheral device...

I'll try a live session of some new puppy and see if the tablet gets recognized.

Well, if you had an older device you'd probably be OK.

Tahr offers a few compatible kernel options. Cool

Run the code line in my last post and let's see the return..

I forgot to mention. Your last code returns nothing in my machine.

I'm running a Celeron M540 CPU (1.8GHz or so), with 2 GB ram. It's an ASUS X51RL laptop

That's probably due to the old kernel not picking up your new device.

Have you got a spare USB drive you could write a new pup to?

I'm running a frugal installation, so it's easy to swap between versions.. I even have Grub set to choose from different puppies: Lupu527, precise 3.8.3.1 and precise 5.7.1

I'll try a newer one and see.

Go with this one:
Code:
wget http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-tahr/iso/tahrpup%20-6.0-CE/tahr-6.0.5_noPAE.iso

Use wget and reduce the possibility of browser corruption.
Then run the checksum from the same directory:
Code:
md5sum tahr-6.0.5_noPAE.iso

PS -- High speed Internet?
