I purchased a Wacom Intuos graphics pad recently (specifically, Create Pen & Touch Tablet, which I think is the rebranding of the Intuos 4), and I am trying to configure it on my Linux Mint 15 system.
Here are some pertinent specs about my computer w.r.t. the installation:
$ uname -r 3.8.0-33-generic /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d $ ls 10-evdev.conf 50-synaptics.conf 51-synaptics-quirks.conf 11-evdev-quirks.conf 50-vmmouse.conf 11-evdev-trackpoint.conf 50-wacom.conf
(Note that the wacom configuration is there.)
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d $ X -version X.Org X Server 1.13.3 Release Date: 2013-03-07 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
When I ran all of the configurations and make commands it all (eventually) worked out OK as per feedback in those commands. But still nothing... the device cannot be found when I type a command like:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d $ xinput list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ Logitech USB Optical Mouse id=11 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
It is not recognizing the wacom tablet at all. I have looked at the wacom config files, and they all seem to be correct (as best as I can tell). I am using the "hotplugging" method, as recommended (note the directory
xorg.conf.d). I'm at a loss what to try next.
I know the problem is configuration, because we also have a Mac at home, and I can get it to work on the Mac. I've used GIMP and similar drawing applications with the tablet on it and it works quite nicely.
I should also mention: when I plug it in, the lights turn on showing it is getting power, and when I click on the buttons, they work, but the tablet pad itself will not work at all... with the pen or by touch.
