Wacom X driver

November 02, 2010 — BarryK
I have compiled the Wacom X driver version 0.8.8-10 in Wary. Here is the PET:

The PET has some utility applications in it -- perhaps a GUI could be built around them. I think that the original source package has a Tcl/Tk frontend application, but that won't work in Wary.

There are a couple of guys testing Wary 094 who have a Wacom tablet. They found that a PET created for Puppy 4.3.1 works. You are welcome to try this one too!

There was also a kernel module compiled in the source package, but I didn't put that in as the kernel in Wary already has 'wacom.ko'. But then, maybe the one that I have compiled will support more recent tablets.

Here is the Linux Wacom homepage:
