2.2 - Downloading the Code






The file linuxwacom-0.9.5.tar.bz2 contains files that you will need to get your serial or USB tablet working.

Unpacking the tarball is usually a one-step process, but I show both steps in case the typical -jxf option doesn't work with tar.

[jej@ayukawa jej]$ bunzip2 linuxwacom-0.9.5.tar.bz2
[jej@ayukawa jej]$ tar -xf linuxwacom-0.9.5.tar
[jej@ayukawa jej]$ cd linuxwacom-0.9.5
Once in the package directory, you need only to configure and build the code. This is described in more detail as you continue. The executables and wacom_drv.o are installed automatically; the kernel drivers have different installation procedures depend on the kernel source you use.

If you are interested, the following tables contain the package contents and release dates. Otherwise, let's continue.
