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...

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?

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.

Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Tablet Not Working

Feb 16, 2011

It's a CTH-460. I downloaded the driver from the linuxwacom project and followed the instructions.

It doesn't work yet but lights turn on, and the pointer follow the displacement (no writing is possible). I have tested also in Windows Machine and it works perfectly well.

My machine is an ASUS VX2S and the distro is Ubuntu 10.04.

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 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?

Ubuntu :: Allowing Middle Mouse Button Click To Scroll?

May 11, 2010

I want to be able to auto scroll by clicking my middle mouse button. In Firefox you can do this in the about:config easily, but with Google Chrome, I don't know what to do.

There is no Chrome option to allow this, so I guess I'd have to configure some stuff. Does anyone know how to do this? I really prefer Chrome over Firefox, and would like to go back to it, but can't without auto scroll.

Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo CTL-460 Fedora Core 14

Feb 5, 2011

One set of instructions for the Xf86-input-wacom-0.10.10 had me restart HAL by killing it, killing related processes, and then starting it...

So we're basically on Day 2, 3, i forgot.... while processes run like a snail in Terminal.

Last 4 lines of so many that my eyes are burning just trying to understand what is going on.

Why is HAL taking half a week so far to do this?!

My processor is 2GHz, RAM at 2 Gigs, HD at half a TB, and I have *no* clue if this will work.

Has anyone here been successful with Fedora Core 14 and Wacom? Wacom needs to build a driver similar to Brother's Linux install tool, which basically asks you for your model and then auto-installs the incredibly complex tool.

Fedora Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch + Fedora 13

Sep 1, 2010

I have had a wonderful Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch tablet, and so far it has only worked on my Windows partition.

This being a fairly new tablet model I'm not too surprised that it doesn't work out of the box on Fedora 13. Though several hours of Google last night tells me people have managed to force it into working using some xorg customization and fairy dust work on wacom.ko.

From here directions get vague (usually found amid bug reports -- this one specifically [url] at least one specific problem is the the tablet does not pick up wacom as its driver. In fact it doesn't see anything at all as its driver.

more /proc/bus/usb/devices produces:


I just don't want to kill my xorg.conf any more with edits it doesn't like.

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?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo CTL-460 ?

Mar 24, 2010

I got a bamboo tablet, CTL-460. Supported under linux wacom project. The hardware ID from lsusb is below:

I also added this line to the right file. (ATM i forget what that file is, but i'll edit it later.) This was found in other posts on forums.opensuse.org

KERNEL=="event*", SYSFS{idVendor}=="056a", NAME="input/%k", SYMLINK="input/wacom"

My question is, now what? the other posts involved recompiling the drivers, kernel, and mixing files and stuff like that. I'd prefer to avoid compiling anything, and use you use X11 wacom packages, which I currently have installed.

I did try editing Xorg.conf to what the official how to says, and it just flat out failed, had to roll it back.

I Figured xorg or one of those similar files has to be edited, modprobe must be probed, and then something to start the tablet when plugged in?

I did try to compile the kernel and stuff, but it was very confusing and didn't work either, clearly.

Anyone here actually gotten the CTL-460 to work? If so, mind posting your xorg.conf and any other files?

Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Pen In OpenSUSE 11.2

Aug 31, 2010

I just got my first ever tablet yesterday and was very eager to set it up...but after spending all day yesterday and today reading various tutorials, I am still at a complete loss as to how to set this up. I have installed the drivers. Apparently, though, I also need to edit a config file to get it to work - a file that I do not have. It's supposed to be either /etc/x11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/xf86-conf. But I do not have this file...and I don't know what I'm supposed to do.

I'm getting frustrated now because I've never really had hardware issues with Linux before, but getting a tablet was a huge deal for me as a digital artist who feels like an amateur just because I could never afford one...and to have it sitting on my desk for two days unable to use it is very depressing.

Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Pen Under Slack 13

Feb 24, 2010

I can't get tablet working under slack, the problem probably is just that no input device gets created. I compiled the driver myself (slack seems to come without wacom driver...).

Here are my settings:



Indeed, /dev/input/wacom does not exist. The control LED on the device is flashing and reacting to the pen.

General :: Wacom Bamboo Pen On Ubuntu 10.04

Aug 27, 2010

I am trying to get my Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet to work on my Ubuntu 10.04 installation. Right now when I plug it in the light lights up and gets brighter when I touch the pen to the surface (as it should), but the mouse does not move. I have installed xserver-xorg-input-wacom package. In researching the problem, I found this thread:[url]

But when I downloaded the kernel driver mentioned in that post, it told me that it was only for xorg servers previous to 1.7, and that I was running too recent a version. From what I can tell, the "proper" version for my xorg server is the version I already have installed from Ubuntu. I am not sure what to do now... should I try to compile the newest driver in the 10.* series from linuxwacom, despite the fact that it seems to be only one minor version away from the current installation I have?

Debian Configuration :: Wacom Bamboo CTH-460 Lost ?

Jan 15, 2010

I recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo CTH-460 and have had endless frustration trying to get it to work.

I started by getting the latest stable source from the Linux Wacom project and trying to compile the drivers and kernel modules from source and installing them, though nothing ever seemed to work. If I do lsmod it shows that the wacom kernel module is loaded but when I do more /proc/bus/usb/devices I end up with this:

And no matter what I try it always says Driver=(none). So that means none of the /dev/input events are getting any data from the tablet, which means there's no way for it to do anything with X. So that is the step I am stuck at.

After some time I came to suspect that perhaps the CTH-460 is too new to be supported, and am now trying to compile drivers from the lastest development source realeased on 12-30-09. It said there was support for 5 new Bamboo tablets. However when I try to make the driver I run into this error:

I'm not sure if that is just an error in the make script or not, and if it is, why no one else has said anything about it.

Maybe I'm going about this all wrong, do I even need a new kernel driver for my tablet model? Do I only need an Xorg driver? What modules and drivers need to be in place before I should at least get the tablet tied to an input event?

Ubuntu :: Wacom Bamboo CTL-460 In Lucid Lynx ?

Apr 20, 2010


The new Wacom Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) doesn�t work in Ubuntu Lucid out-of-the-box. You need a newer kernel module than the one that comes with Lucid by default. It�s pretty easy to get it working though, you just need to know how.

First, install some compiling tools and header files:



Now unpack, configure compile and install it:


# I know this is the wrong version, but it's the highest available and it works


The tablet should work now. You can also add the module name to /etc/modules to automatically load it on boot.

He also says (and I can confirm) that the gray lines are the new borders of the tablet. A little annoying, but I imagine one could configure that, too.

Ubuntu :: Wacom Bamboo Button Configuration?

Ubuntu :: Wacom Bamboo Touch Not Supported To Rotation

Dec 24, 2010

I am running Kubuntu 10.10 x64, using a Wacom Bamboo (CTH-460), I installed it by compiling the driver and moving the file as in every tutorial I could find in the Internet. The pen works perfectly, except by the fact I use TwinView and the tablet uses all the width, too sensitive. but this is something I plan to fix later... (pressure is OK)

the problem is the touch.. It almost works, right click, zoom and scroll support is ok, I believe there is no support to rotation but I can live without it... The problem is the cursor movement, seems to be a sensitivity issue. If I move very slow there is no problem, but if i move a little faster the cursor stops as if I had removed the finger from the sensor. When I try to scroll or zoom I have a similar problem, it moves an inch before it start to scroll as if it wasn't sensing the second finger, but right click is perfect so I don't think this is the problem.

Would this be a bug? Is there a way to calibrate the touch sensor? I remember editing the xorg.conf to make the touch fit the screen size in a HP Tx2510us, and to make two finger scroll on to touch pad but it was in 8.10 I believe, I cant find something like it for this problem. wacomcpl cant see the device, xsetwacom list returns nothing... xinput list returns this:

Ubuntu :: Krita Not Using Pressure Sensor With Wacom Bamboo

Hardware :: Cannot Install Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch CTH 460 In Mint 10

Jul 16, 2011

I did not keep a record of everything I have tried. I used the package manager to apply anything with wacom in its name. I downloaded xf86-input-wacom-0.10.9 but perhaps I put it in the wrong directory.

I took screen shots of some of the things I did (but have no idea how to insert them). I tried ~ git clone git://linuxwacom.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom and -after trying for some time to figure out if my system is 32 or 64 bit- typed cd xf86-input-wacom and from there typed~ ./autogen.sh --prefix=usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 the text that followed was long-- wish I could use a screenshot! The line autoreconfig: running: aclocal was followed by

The last 3 lines were:

Since then I downloaded the X.OrgX11 driver for wacom tablets and attempted to copy the wacom.fdi file into /etc/hal/fdi/policy but do not have permission. I am so new to Linux that I am reluctant to try to change permissions.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Configure Wacom/bamboo Tablets And Xorg

Jan 31, 2011

A few weeks ago, I was configuring my wacom tablet with the Wacom Control Panel by QB89Dragon, and suddenly xorg crashed. I remember specifically that I was modifying the pressure curve of the pen when it crashed. The screen went black, but the computer stayed on. Since then, every time I start up ubuntu normally, it would show the splash screen, but would then drop me to a black screen. But if I boot up under recovery mode, failsafeX, and generate a new x configuration, and restart X, it will work fine until I restart.

I've tried looking for an xorg.conf, but since I'm running 10.04, I guess it doesn't use an xorg.conf anymore. I tried uninstalling the program I used to configure it, but no go. I tried generating a new configuration with the tablet unplugged, with the tablet plugged in, even with a different tablet. And, since nothing is ever that simple when I do something wrong, nothing so far has worked.
