Thread: Graphic Tablet working in 5 steps!!

  1. #1

    Graphic Tablet working in 5 steps!!

    METHOD FOR UBUNTU 11.04:

    The old methods still working on Ubuntu 11.04 (Thanks BCtom)
    For the Waltop models (like Genius Gpen-F509) you don't need install Wizardpen driver, only connect the tablet and enjoy.

    You can know if your tablet is Waltop model with this command:

    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    In my case (Genius Gpen-F509) the MachtProduct is:

    Code:
    N: Name="         WALTOP             Tablet    "


    METHOD FOR UBUNTU 10.10: (thanks negora for the solution and doctormo for update the ppa repository)

    1. Install the Wizardpen driver from the deb package wizardpen_0.7.3-1_i386.deb or the ppa repository, you can add add the repository with this command:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/xorg-wizardpen && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wizardpen
    2. Restart and enjoy your tablet

    IMPORTANT: If your tablet don't work properly after the restart, try modifying the 70-wizardpen.conf file putting your configuration manually and report the bug:

    For Gnome users:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    For KDE users:
    Code:
    sudo kate /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    If you cannot edit this file, use this command and then try to edit again:

    Code:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
    ...and now put the info that I explain in the method for Ubuntu 10.04 in the point 2.



    METHOD FOR UBUNTU 10.04

    I've tried with another configuration for 70-wizardpen.conf and this works better.

    1. Install Wizardpen driver from sources or deb binaries (I used the deb package wizardpen_0.7.3-1_i386.deb)

    2. Type this command in the terminal to know the MachProduct info of your Pentablet:

    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    In my case the MachtProduct is:

    Code:
    N: Name="         WALTOP             Tablet    "
    3. Use the calibration tool in the terminal:

    Code:
    wizardpen-calibrate /dev/tablet-event
    4. Edit the file 70-wizardpen.conf using root privileges:

    For Gnome users:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    For KDE users:
    Code:
    sudo kate /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf
    So, my new 70-wizardpen.conf file for Genius G-pen F509 is:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
       MatchProduct "WALTOP|Tablet"
       Driver "wizardpen"
    #[CALIBRATION] This data was taken from wizard-calibrate tool.
            Option          "TopX"          "260"
            Option          "TopY"          "377"
            Option          "BottomX"       "17782"
            Option          "BottomY"       "10584"
    #[END CALIBRATION]
    EndSection
    And this is for Genius PenSketch 9x12.

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
       MatchProduct "Tablet|PF1209"
       Driver "wizardpen"
    #[CALIBRATION] This data was taken from wizard-calibrate tool.
       Option          "TopX"          "0"
       Option          "TopY"          "1553"
       Option          "BottomX"       "32541"
       Option          "BottomY"       "32762"
    #[END CALIBRATION]
    EndSection

    Thank you very much!

    My Tablet W8060U (UC-Logic) now works like a charm. I was getting worried after I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 that I was never going to get this fixed for a few months after everyone else got theirs going. thanks for the how-to instructions.

    Hello! I'm just in the same situation with my UG-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U. However I'm not being able to make it work. Just to clarify... Do you all use the i386 edition of Ubuntu or, on the contrary, you use the amd64 one? Thank you.

    Re: Graphic Tablet working in 5 steps!!

    I believe to have found part of the origin of my issue and a solution. I've 2 important conclusions:

    1 - My tablet is not "recognized" as being a tablet but a pointer, so the "MatchIsTablet" rule at /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf won't work ever. I've tried different possibilities and "MatchIsPointer" works right.

    I guess that it has something to do with UDEV and the rule files. On HAL there was a key which allowed to set the device as a tablet (as a stylus really):

    Code:
    <merge key="input.product" type="string">stylus</merge>
    However, I've no idea about if this could be achieved in UDEV in a similar way.


    2 - If I only replace "MatchIsTablet" by "MatchIsPointer", this will activate the rule but cause the pointer to move and get stuck to the coordinate 0,0 . It's mandatory to set the dimensions of the tablet to make it work.


    So, summarizing, here it's my 70-wizardpen.conf file:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen"
       MatchIsPointer "on"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
       MatchVendor "UC-LOGIC|KYE Systems|Ace Cad"
       Driver "wizardpen"
       Option "TopX" "2650"
       Option "TopY" "3563"
       Option "TopZ" "10"
       Option "BottomX" "30733"
       Option "BottomY" "29715"
       Option "BottomZ" "511"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen ignore mouse dev"
       MatchIsPointer "on"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
       MatchVendor "UC-LOGIC|KYE Systems|Ace Cad"
       Driver ""
    EndSection
    In my case the "MatchVendor" rule works fine by the way.
