13.6 - Building wacom driver On Fedora 13






The following steps for building wacom driver on Fedora 13 were extracted from the emails of Jonathan R Young and Peter Hutterer. If you have any problems or questions, go ahead and post them to the list.




 Build kernel driver wacom.ko 
yum-buildep linuxwacom
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/linuxwacom/linuxwacom-0.8.8-10.tar.bz2

tar -xf linuxwacom-0.8.8-10.tar.bz2
cd  linuxwacom-0.8.8-10
./configure --enable-wacom
su -c "cp src/2.6.30/wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet"

 Build X driver wacom_drv.so 
Refer to http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/linuxwacom/index.php?title=Xf86-input-wacom
for details.

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom-0.10.8.tar.bz2
./configure --prefix=/usr  
make
su -c "make install"

Finally, plug the tablet in and restart the X server (or just restart your system).
