Linux Wacom Project HOWTO

5.0 - Configuring X11






Two steps must be completed to get X to recognize your tablet. First, you need to add some lines to XF86Config/xorg.conf to inform X of the tablet's existence. Second, you need to update the XInput driver that pertains to the tablet since the one that ships with XFree86/Xorg is not very functional. Neither driver holds a candle to the windows driver though, so you'll have to take what you get for the time being. Updates to the XFree86/Xorg driver are available in the releases on the Downloading the Code page.
