    Default wacom intuos 5 tablet not responding with openSUSE 12.2

    Hi:
    My wacom intuos 5 tablet is not working with openSUSE 12.2 and KDE.
    Led shows activity when pen touches the tablet but cursor remains fixed when pen is displaced.
    To lsusb I get the response: Bus 002 Device 002: ID 056a:0028 Wacom Co., Ltd
    To lsmod | grep wacom I get: wacom 48177 0
    To dmesg log disconnecting and conneting the tablet gives:
    USB disconnect, device number 4
    [ 5223.131043] usb 2-3: new full-speed USB device number 5 using ohci_hcd
    [ 5223.329686] usb 2-3: New USB device found, idVendor=056a, idProduct=0028
    [ 5223.329696] usb 2-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
    [ 5223.329703] usb 2-3: Product: Intuos5 touch L
    [ 5223.329707] usb 2-3: Manufacturer: Wacom Co.,Ltd.

    Which is the problem?
    I'd be very pleased for any given suggestion.

    You might check with the Wacom mailing list - it's pretty active, and one
    of the developers (as I recall) works for Wacom as well. I'm sure he'd
    be able to help you get things going, and if there is a bug, he'd be the
    one fixing it.

    It's hosted by sourceforge, so you could probably also just read it there
    as a forum. The list is at linuxwacom-discuss@lists.sourceforge.net (the
    project is "linuxwacom").

    Wacom kernel module in Opensuse 12.2 is too old and lacks support for Intuos 5. The easiest way to install newer wacom kernel module is adding munix9/openSUSE_12.2 repository in Yast, and then installing wacom-kmp-your_kernel_version (kernel_version is default or pae or desktop...).
    Open Yast, choose Software > Software repositories. Click Add, mark the Specify URL button and click Next. In the URL field paste following address:
    "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/munix9/openSUSE_12.2"]Index of /repositories/home:/munix9/openSUSE_12.2"
    Click Next and OK.
    Choose Software management in Yast, in the Search field type wacom and mark wacom-kmp-your_kernel_version for installation. Click OK, reboot, and Intuos 5 should work (I think).
