I run Linux Mint 14. I bought a wacom intuos pen&touch small tablet and my old driver (don't know which one, someone installed it for me...) does not support it.
I did a little research and found input-wacom which I tried to install (I'm pretty new to linux but I found some clear instructions on http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/linuxwacom/index.php?title=Input-wacom . Everything went right, but when I tried to copy the
.ko files with the following commands
sudo cp ./<kernel version>/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet sudo cp ./<kernel version>/wacom_w8001.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen
the terminal returned nothing. I went to my
/lib/modules/2.5.0-17-generic/kernel/drivers/input/tablet directory and noticed that there already was a wacom.ko file, but it's older than the wacom.ko file in the input-wacom(...) folder. So I have the old driver installed, but I can't find a way to uninstall it nor replace the
wacom.ko files—when I use the command, nothing happens, and when I try to replace it using the explorer, I don't have the right permissions to do it.
So here I am, stuck with two drivers, and of course my tablet is not working. How can I solve the problem?
