    Default Installing the Wacom Bamboo Driver

    Hi, I switched to OpenSuse 11 today, from Ubuntu hardy. I Quite like it but there's one thing I can't get done: installing the wacom bamboo driver.

    Kernel version: 2.6.25.5-1.1-default

    My Bamboo does actually work, but not the way it should be. It behaves more like a touchpad than a pen tablet. Well, I had the same problem in the beginning on Ubuntu Hardy with it, but there was a nice gui which told how to install the linuxwacom driver. Something I can't find for OpenSuse 11.

    This is the result when trying to configure linuxwacom:

    The problem is: the wacom.o will not be build. And I don't know why. I installed kernel-source, linux-kernel-headers, but it still doesn't want to build the wacom.o

    How can I let my bamboo work?

    I can't edit my post so I post another reply:

    When I do 'make', even if wacom.o won't be built, I get after a few seconds:

    And even more, but the post was to long then.

    Default Re: Installing the Wacom Bamboo Driver / Config. OpenSuse 11

    I'm just wondering if it's really necessary to install that driver. I also have an issue with version 11 (didn't work in 10.3 for me). OpenSuse 11 recognises it, and it acts like a mouse (relative mode); However with the wacom-Tools installed, if I launch :
    wacdump /dev/input/event6 (as root) it really shows that everything seems to work fine (position, pressure). So I think the driver is OK; I'm just not sure what to put into /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Tried the stuff from this link : The Linux Wacom Project and The Linux Wacom Project , replacing of course the device mentioned there (/dev/input/event0) with /dev/input/event6; but well, X wouldn't start anymore... it tries to, get a mouse cursor, shakes, and gone, and again and again... maybe someone can give a hint ? Thanks :-)

    As for my issue I posted it now works, so with the wakom driver installed on OpenSuse 11 it works for me; all I had to do was to put the entries in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf BEFORE the 'Input device' for the mouse.

    it now looks like :

    All that I needed then was to configure the Gimp Extended device to use them (and disabled 'Mouse[1]' in it so I could use tablet and mouse to paint.) I hope you will manage it too that way

    Default Re: Installing the Wacom Bamboo Driver

    At the risk of closing the barn door (and possibly the door to the wrong barn) after the horse is gone, there is also a HOW-TO here:
    Wacom tablet under openSUSE 11.0 - openSUSE Forums

    That HOW-TO references the "Wacom Graphire 3" instead, but it still may be of interest to some readers of this thread.

    well, hoped that would work, but after updating XORG, tho Tablet acts again like a mouse, and /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows :

    (EE) No Input driver matching `wacom'

    :-(

    It seems to me something changes in the detection of the device.

    /proc/bus/input/devices contains :
    ...
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=056a Product=0065 Version=0108
    N: Name="Wacom Bamboo"
    P: Phys=
    S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:03:07.1/usb5/5-1/5-1.2/5-1.2:1.0/input/input7
    U: Uniq=
    H: Handlers=mouse1 event6
    B: EV=1f
    B: KEY=1c63 0 70033 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    B: REL=100
    B: ABS=100 3000103
    B: MSC=1
    ...

    the entry in 'Handlers seems weird to me ... I'm stuck here, don't now where to look for...

    Hi,

    I think I'm in a similar situation. Using SuSE 11.0, 64-bit. The Bamboo (USB) works just like an ALPS pad and I don't know how to fix it.

    I did try following the Linux Wacom Project HOWTO, but I cannot get their driver to install (the option "./configure --enable-wacom" has no effect, and "make" gives a string of errors starting with:
    "In file included from ./xf86Wacom.c:79:
    ./xf86Wacom.h:26:25: error: xf86Version.h: No such file or directory" ).
    I've downloaded every xorg developement package (except for the 32 bit) from yast (repos: oss, non-oss, update, packman, nvidia), but I can't find a xf86Version.h.

    I cannot follow the forum post titled "Wacom tablet under openSUSE 11.0" because I have no such file "##-wacom.rules". (This file is mentioned in the LWP HOWTO as well). How do I make one? Can I just copy a text file?

    My "/proc/bus/input/devices" is very similar to atuor's, but Handlers = mouse3 event11

    There is a wacom module loaded. I did try downloading the driver a couple of times and it always has the same md5sum. Sax2 is no help. I'm using an nvidia graphics card. I'm stuck.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks.

    I can't help. But I can refer you to this URL:
    TabletPCs - openSUSE
    Please note that page is for all tablet devices, and NOT just tablet PCs.

    Please also note the author of that URL is user Dkukawa:
    User : Dkukawka - openSUSE

    And most important, please note his offer at the end of his user page:

    Tablet PCs

    I wrote my diploma thesis about Tablet PCs and Linux. Now I work on better support of Tablet PCs and integrate the results of my thesis in SUSE Linux.

    At last I added for SUSE 10.1/SLES 10/SLED 10 I added more support for Tablet PCs in HAL. This include better detection and an addon to set the serial port for the Wacom Tablet automatically.

    At the moment I work on some SAX2 rules for a generic setup for Tablet PCs with a Wacom device.

    The first place to start with Tablet PCs should be the page about TabletPCs in the wiki.

    If you need some help to get you Tablet PC running feel free to ask me.

    Thanks, oldcpu.

    I think the problem has to do with the xorg.conf
    Section "InputDevice"
    ...
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    ...

    for a USB mouse I'm using. And I think I need to use that mysterious ##-wacom.rules file to get around it, but maybe not.

    I guess I should ask Dkukawka.
    I'll post any progress here.
