Wacom Intuos3 no longer showing after downgrade from Tumbleweed to 13.2

Hi,

After a recent the downgrade from Tumbleweed to 13.2 I no longer see and configure my Wacom Intuos3 tablet in Configure Desktop > Input Devices. But in YaST hardware information the device is there PTZ-630 (/dev/input/mice).

Strangely the input seems to work and moving the pen over the tablet moves the mouse pointer on the screen.

Any idea how to fix this and be able to configure the device?

Have you got the xf86-input-wacom, libwacom-tools, and other related wacom
libraries installed?

(I have an Intuos4, and it works perfectly in 13.2 - and the 4 isn’t that
different from the 3 IIRC)

Of those you mention only libwacom-tools was not installed. But after installing it nothing changed. Also the -devel ones are not installed but I assume they are not mandatory.

Yeah, the devel packages shouldn’t be necessary unless you’re compiling
something.

In code tags, let’s start with the basics - output of lsusb and lspci.

I assume the tablet is connected via USB?

Note that down grading is tricky you may want to erase any related config files.

Good point - would be good to know how this downgrade was performed.

Which ones?

By downloading the DVD and running an offline upgrade.

Any config associated with the Wacom stuff. maybe in /etc possibly in home. I was making a general obsevation have no idea where the wacom configs live.

Well, searching in /etc I found this:

Do you notice anything wrong?

The only thing I see here is MatchProduct "HID 1b96:0001… where 1b96:0001 doesn’t match the Wacom lsusb address. But should it? I really don’t know.

Maybe rename /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf

Or see what’s in it.

That might be problematic. In theory it should work, but downgrading
is always tricky. It’s very likely there’s some config file somewhere
that didn’t get properly “updated” for the downgrade (config files tend
to get left alone), and an option that’s not known could well be causing
it to have an issue.

It might be worth checking the xorg log file as well.

Nope, it doesn’t need to match (just checked on my system).

That’s a config for a specific product other than what you have.

That might be problematic. In theory it should work, but downgrading
is always tricky. It’s very likely there’s some config file somewhere
that didn’t get properly “updated” for the downgrade (config files tend
to get left alone), and an option that’s not known could well be causing
it to have an issue.

But actually everything works, even the device itself. What doesn’t work is that there is no interface to configure it (e.g. in Configure Desktop). That is the only actual problem.

It might be worth checking the xorg log file as well.

There it is:

But I somehow missed that it wasn’t that it doesn’t work, but that the
config tools are missing.

KDE Plasma.

Where “n” is the display number (probably 0 in your case).

However, that the tablet works and you just can’t configure it tells me
it’s not an X issue.

I don’t know KDE that well (and KDE Plasma less), but it seems in KDE4,
there was a kce module for the wacom tablet (I find references to ‘kce-
wacomtablet’). It sounds like you need the plasma version of that.

Those config tools usually are a frontend to a configuration tool
called xsetwacom, so you might try using that command (it should be
installed) and see what it shows for devices and parameters. My guess is
that it’ll work OK, which means it’s just the KDE frontend that you’re
missing.

This is the whole piece in the log between the first and the last appearance of the string “wacom” (case insensitive): http://paste.opensuse.org/bd906c1d

I guess you mean kde, not kce but in both cases I don’t find any such package (or description of one) on YaST or a file on the fs.

Exactly.
As for the xsetwacom - it is installed:

xsetwacom --list devices

Wacom Intuos3 6x8 stylus                id: 9   type: STYLUS    
Wacom Intuos3 6x8 eraser                id: 12  type: ERASER    
Wacom Intuos3 6x8 cursor                id: 13  type: CURSOR    
Wacom Intuos3 6x8 pad                   id: 14  type: PAD       

There is also the list of parameters and modifiers but I don’t see how to configure a graphic tablet using text console commands :frowning:

Sorry for the delay - work got busy and this looked like it was going to take more time than I had to give to it. :slight_smile:

The searches I did turned up kce-wacomtablet - yes, with a ‘c’, not a ‘d’. It looks like it’s a KDE4 module that maybe didn’t make it to Plasma.

So the way xsetwacom works is it takes “–set” and “–get” parameters to configure different options. Generally, the GUIs call this command to take care of the configuration.

In your instance, you have three devices identified - you can get the configuration for each with:

xsetwacom --get “Wacom Intuos3 6x8 stylus” all
xsetwacom --get “Wacom Intuos3 6x8 eraser” all
xsetwacom --get “Wacom Intuos3 6x8 cursor” all

The stylus and eraser devices are the tip and eraser ends of your tablet’s pen. The “cursor” device is the mouse.

For example, if I get the parameters for my mouse on my Intuos4, I get:


[jhenderson@artifactovol ~]$ xsetwacom --get "Wacom Intuos4 6x9 cursor" all
Option "Area" "0 0 44704 27940"

Option "ToolSerialPrevious" "-1803343664"
Option "BindToSerial" "0"
Option "TabletID" "185"
Property 'Wacom Pressure Recalibration' does not exist on device.

I can change the various parmeters (the ones that can be changed) with the --set parameter. For example, to change the mouse mode from relative to absolute:


xsetwacom --set "Wacom Intuos4 6x9 cursor" "Mode" "Absolute"

Now - this isn’t ideal, but should give you something to play with to see that the tablet is actually able to be configured (which is a good test that it’s working OK).

Hi Jim,

Thanks for taking the time to explain all this. I understand what you mean but the problem is that I don’t know what values these parameters accept in order to attempt any meaningful test.

BTW googling for kce-wacomtablet I found this which seems to be exactly what one would need. Any idea how I can that in openSUSE 13.2 as a package?


Another thing I noticed during the last week: Not sure where to report this but I guess you as administrator can forward it: when I receive an email notification for a thread I am subscribed to and click the link, e.g.

https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/508511-Wacom-Intuos3-no-longer-showing-after-downgrade-from-Tumbleweed-to-13-2?goto=newpost

Chrome says “Duplicate headers found” error. Refresh N times - same result.

If I remove the ?goto=newpost param I am taken to the home page of the forums. And then if I go back to the email and click the link again, I am taken to the right post. This happens with any notification, not only with this thread.

Update:

I think I found the package on another repo:

http://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home:Temar:wacom&package=kcm_tablet

Not sure why it is not included in the official ones?

Do you have any idea how to configure so that drawing in gimp with the pen actually draws? Currently as soon as I touch the tablet with the pen tip, gimp opens the right-mouse-button menu. I tried turning on “Tap to execute action” and Button 2 = “Left mouse button click” in KCM settings but that didn’t help.

That’s a user’s attempt to build it for Factory. No idea why it’s not
included in the official repos either, but from what little I’ve found,
it seems that this is probably for kde4 and not plasma.

My configuration in GNOME just works - I didn’t have to tweak anything
for gimp to work properly.

There are also settings in GIMP itself - go to Edit -> Input Devices and
you should see your tablet listed there. There again, though, I’ve never
had to configure those settings - for me, it just worked.
