Fedora Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Tablet Not Recognized ?

Feb 10, 2010

I have recently bought a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet, and just as recently installed Fedora 12 KDE for its supposed "excellent tablet support".

Well, I have yet to see any of that. Unless the fact that I'm using KDE affects this (and I'm staying KDE, no more GNOME for me!), I see no reason why my tablet should not work. It was working fine in Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit (though the last time I started up in Windows it said it didn't recognize the device).

None of the applications that I've heard implemented in Fedora to support tablets were installed, but then again they're all probably GNOME apps, am I right? Still, my tablet should at least act as a mouse? I checked KPackageManager, and it said that the latest linuxwacom driver was installed. So why isn't anything working?

It seems as if everything - all this talk about tablet support in F12 - is just for GNOME. About the only thing working with my tablet as I type this is the status light, which indicates it being recognized as a USB device, and it flashes like it should when I tap the surface with the pen, but it seems as if there's nothing to receive the input. I even installed the latest GIMP, and when I checked Input Devices, nothing relating to the tablet was even there! At least on Windows it showed the Pen and the non-existent eraser, though neither worked properly, but it seems as if Fedora 12 doesn't even know it's there!

I shouldn't have to change anything in xorg.conf, because I thought that linuxwacom did it for you?

Fedora Hardware :: 13 - Xorg.conf And Wacom Tablet Tuning

May 31, 2010

I've just installed Fedora 13 and I have a question. How do I tune my tablet? I've tried to set threshold and aspect in xorg.conf just like in Fedora 11, but it doesn't work in the current release.

Here's a part of my xorg.conf:

I also tried 'xsetwacom' command, but I get errors.

Fedora Hardware :: Wacom Drivers And Kernel Updated - Tablet Hanging

Nov 30, 2009

I upgraded to Fedora 12 right after release, everything was working fine until update on previous weekend. Looks like it updated Wacom drivers and kernel. Now what I have. I hotplug my tablet in USB, and everything seems fine, I can position a cursor and press buttons, but after I press some button it hangs (LEDs on tablet are responding) I must remove Stylus from proximity in order to make it respond again (while stylus is away LED on tablet switches off for a fraction of second).

If I move mouse during tablet hanging, applications barely respond and if they are it is like mouse button is pressed (selecting text). I tried wacdump, and it's reporting everything's fine (X,Y, Tilt, Pressure everything shows up). I couldn't find evidence that wacom driver is controlling it, but I assume if wacdump is reporting then it is. I have:

I didn't touch xorg.conf in sense of tablet, but it worked for me in F11 and until now. I'm trying to make least manual configurations possible. Through exploring /proc/bus/usb/devices and kernel messages I confirmed that wacom drives is handling the tablet. And I noticed that in X's log

(II) config/hal: Adding input device Wacom Intuos3 9x12
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: always reports core events
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12 device is /dev/input/event8
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12 (Wacom Intuos3 9x12) is not a pad
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12 is in absolute mode
(**) WACOM: suppress value is 2
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: reading USB link
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: threshold = 61
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: max x = 60960
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: max y = 45720
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: max z = 1023
(**) Option "BaudRate" "9600"
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: serial speed 9600
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Wacom Intuos3 9x12" (type: Wacom Stylus)
(EE) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: Top/Bottom area overlaps with another devices.
(EE) Couldn't init device "Wacom Intuos3 9x12"
(II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
(EE) config/hal: NewInputDeviceRequest failed (1)

I've encountered quite similar error in openSUSE when was configuring tablet manually in xorg.conf. As I can see problem is with "pad" device, which I disabled in openSUSE in order to make X running. So why is it not working?

Fedora Hardware :: Scroll And Middle Click Via Wacom Bamboo Tablet

Jun 17, 2011

I recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen Only (CTL-460). It's a great device and in Fedora 15 (x86_64) it worked out-of-the-box like a charm!

I don't miss the rubber or the extra keys on the tablet. But I'm having quite some trouble, using the pen as a mouse replacement in all day use. The following is with respect to usage outside GIMP and Inkscape (i.e. Firefox, Nautilus etc). What I would really like to have, is:

+ scrolling by pressing the "first button" and simply _moving_ the pen. Just like with my Thinkpad-Trackpoint: Here I press the middle key and can then scroll just by controlling the Trackpoint. Would already be cool, if I could scroll by pressing the "first button" and touching the tablet. A short tap while pressing the "first button" should still be a "middle click"!


Found a solution for "jamming at the edge of the screen". Just resized the "area" a bit (smaller) with xsetwacom...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 64-bit And Wacom Bamboo Tablet?

Apr 9, 2011

as a kind of luxory item I am thinking of adding a bamboo to my PC. Before putting action behind this, I wonder how much of a hazzle this brings about. Has anybody of you experience with 11.4 in this field? If a hazzle: Can anybody be bothered to compile the driver and provide it as a 1-click on the build service - or even in the official repositories? Would there be full functionality actually after all? BTW, I am aware of the wacom SF-site.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Tablet Users On 11.3?

Jul 17, 2010

I decided to write here because I was wondering if there are any Wacom Bamboo (MTE-450) tablet users who experience any resume problems with their tablets on 11.3. I experience this issue on 11.2 - tablet was not working after resume from suspending to RAM - I had to replug it in order to make it work. Now when I upgraded to 11.3, the issue was still there.

Finally, I was able to "workaround" the issue by doing the following (found on some Ubuntu groups):

echo 'SUSPEND_MODULES="wacom"' | sudo tee /etc/pm/config.d/50wacom

I am wondering if that happens to anyone else and if it still the case for a freshly installed 11.3.

Ubuntu :: Can't Configure Wacom Tablet In Xorg.conf

Feb 4, 2010

I have a wacom graphire3 tablet and two monitors. The tablet is workin properly with out of the box drivers.

As well as the dual monitors configured as twinview through Nvidia X server. But the tablet is mapped for the two screens, then I searched the forums for a proper configuration and it it tells me to edit the xorg.conf file for twinview horizontal but, it don't make any difference. I've "sudo gedit" edited the xorg.conf and nothing happens. Nothing, the tablet is working properly, the system is stable and it's still mapped for two screens.

What can I do? The xorg.conf also isn't listing all my hardware, I can't see the confs for my mouse. I'm on karmic koala.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Data Stream From Wacom Bamboo Tablet?

Jun 6, 2010

I have recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet and have got it working with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) by following this post: [URL].

I am now trying to trap the actual data coming from the bamboo as I write with the pen and found some threads suggesting that if I do an xxd one of /dev/ttyS[0-4] I should be able to see output. However when I do a "sudo xxd /dev/ttyS0" the xxd command finishes straight away.

If I run the command "xxd /dev/input/mouse1" I can the data coming from the mouse movement so I am expecting to be able to see the same sort of thing coming from the wacom bamboo pen. Both the bamboo and the mouse are USB connected.

Does anyone know if the stream of data coming form the wacom bamboo should go to /dev/ttyS[0-4] or should I be looking elsewhere?

Hardware :: Wacom Tablet -- External USB Versus Built-in OEM Serial

Jul 24, 2010

There has been a lot of effort invested in getting external USB connected anything to work well during the connect then disconnect processing. It seems that there are troubles with OEM serial digitizers like those built-in for a tablet-PC. The built-in OEM devices do not have the same sort of connection events to trigger device creation and configuration.

Does anyone know how to make all of the find-hardware then create configuration processing visible? While I find several postings that describe "... edit xorg.conf ..." but then those edits don't want to work with the recent evolution in Xorg and X11-server configuration that deprecates (abandons?) xorg.conf. Does anyone understand what is going on with Xorg and X11-config to help me get my tablet working? Has anyone used an external USB tablet, then adapted those configuration details to get an OEM tablet working? I know that every tablet is different, but if the external device connect-creates-config process works best, it seems there might be value here.

Ubuntu :: Trust Tablet Tb4200 - Cant Seem To Move Mouse Curser Anymore Unless Touch The Pen On The Tablet

Sep 15, 2010

I m on ubuntu 10.04 and have a Trust tb 4200 tablet.. and having problems with my trust tablet runing on ubuntu.. i pluged in the tablet and to my amaze it started working right away until i pressed the pen on the tablet.. i cant seem to move the mouse curser anymore unless i touch the pen on the tablet. (wich acts as a click) so i thought that i may be missing the drivers.. i checked thes forum and there was a post to install the aptek drivers which i did (but still worked the same) and i found out thet there was no 10-aiptek.fdi (in "/etc/hal/fdi/policy/") so i created one and copied one from a post.. in [url]...3&postcount=50 but still cant move the courser without touching.. its like if it did no diference at all.. i also changed the values in the 10-aiptek.fdi with no changes.. the size of the tablet is just the size of the screen so i am using the full tablet.. and no buttons work...

I think the drivers are not workin.. in the synaptic it shows as intalled...

Hardware :: Digital Tablet - Show The Pen Strokes Both On The Tablet's Display And On The Computer's Monitor At The Same Time

Mar 13, 2010

I have noticed they sell digital writing tablets that have the ability to show the pen strokes both on the tablet's display and on the computer's monitor at the same time, and I think they are called LCD digital tablets and they serve as both a second computer monitor AND a writing tablet combined in one, such as the Wacom Cintiq, and must be connected both by USB as well as with a VGA/DVI port, and you have the ability to open up a drawing application directly from the tablet such as Paint where you can draw or write on the tablet's display. And you can see what you are writing on the tablet's display. Then you save the results to a JPEG file, for example.

But I do not want a digtal tablet quite as elaborate as that. I am looking for something similar to the credit card terminals used in stores where you can sign your name directly on the display after swiping your credit card, and you can see what you are writing as you write. Then your signature shows up on a paper receipt later. Do they make digital tablets like that for the home user, and if they do, would they have to hook up to the VGA/DVI port on your video card? What are they called and where can I get one?

I've searched several online stores but they do not say if you can see what you are writing on the tablet's display. I already have a Wacom tablet in Linux but you can not see what you are writing on the tablet. I have to keep looking up at my computer's monitor to see what I am writing and proficiency is reduced as a result. And again, I do not want a tablet as elaborate as I described in my first paragraph. I want something simplier, such as the type used at a credit card terminal.

Hardware :: Get Omnipen OP 906 Pen Tablet (not Tablet Computer) To Work

Apr 22, 2011

I want to get this pen tablet (not tablet computer) to work (for drawing in kolorpaint / krita / gimp etc)

Omnipen OP-906 (ancient mid-90's device). It came with floppy with drivers for Windows 3.11 and old Mac Plugs into ttyS0 (com1. It has "tablet mode" and "mouse mode". It is meant to always start in "tablet mode", but if I give it a small power interruption (take out the AC plug from the wall halfway and quickly plug it back in), it sometimes kicks into "mouse mode". The original driver is supposed to be able to switch the modes

General :: Detect If A Program Is Writing To A File?

Mar 3, 2009

I have custom software that writes to a sensitive large file when the user does something. I would like to make backup copies of The file that gets written to, but if I make a gzip of the file at the same time someone is changing something, it will corrupt the backup because some of the data will be missing, as its backed up during being written to.

a) Is there a way to detect if a file is currently being accessed/written to?
That way if its currently being accessed, I can just make the script wait until its done and then finally back it up.

b) Instead of backing up the large file while it has potential to get written to, would it be better to make a copy of the file first, then gzip the copy? This idea comes from the fact that gzipping the original takes 5-10 seconds, whereas making a copy only takes 1-2 seconds. The less time, the less chance of corruption.

c) Is there anyway to freeze a program or a file to stop it from being written to for an amount of time?

With a, b, and c together. The best solution I have to my problem would be a script that first detects rather the file is being accessed. If not, it would then freeze the file/program and then make a quick copy of it. Once the copy is created, it will unfreeze the original file/program and then go about gzipping the copy.
