The Linux Wacom Project manages the drivers, libraries, and documentation for
configuring and running Wacom tablets under the Linux operating system. It
contains diagnostic applications as well as updated kernel drivers and
XFree86/Xorg XInput drivers.|
The HOWTO section
contains step-by-step instructions for getting your tablet running. If you
run into trouble, let us know so we can get the documentation updated.
To assist you, there are three mailing lists providing forums for
and general discussion.
The archives for these
forums are also useful for researching problems you are encountering.
The most commonly asked questions and the best answers available to date are
in the FAQ. If you still have problem, please check
Trackers to see if
someone else has reported the issue or has a patch for the problem.
For application developers, check the overview
of adding new capabilities to your applications by using a Wacom tablet, or take a look at the
overview of Wacom XInput driver.
The sample code shows how to get
the button and valuator values.
