The Linux Wacom Project

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. Currently, the Linux Wacom Project provides two packages:

  • linuxwacom: a combined package of kernel patches and the X11 input driver for X Servers up to including 1.6.
  • xf86-input-wacom: the X11 input driver for X Servers 1.7 and later (X11R7.5)

Devices supported by the Linux Wacom Project are listed below. See the Device IDs page for additional detail.

Serial devices:

  • Intuos series*
  • Cintiq series*
  • TabletPC (with/without touch)

USB series:

  • Graphire series
  • Cintiq (V4 series)
  • CintiqPartner
  • Intuos 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Intuos and Intuos Pro
  • Cintiq (V5 series)
  • Volito series
  • PenPartner series
  • PL & DTF
  • Bamboo, Bamboo1, & BambooFun
  • Bamboo Pen & Touch
  • TabletPC (with/without touch)

Bluetooth series:

  • Graphire Bluetooth Wireless
  • Intuos4 Wireless


NOTE: Only ISDV4 serial devices (TabletPC's) are currently supported by xf86-input-wacom (Xserver 1.7 or later). For legacy serial graphics tablets a pair of serio kernel drivers are being developed, that in conjunction with inputattach, provide support on xf86-input-wacom. They are currently working or near completion. The protocol V tablet's (Intuos and Instuos2) wacom_serial5.ko is available here.

NOTE: A FreeBSD Wacom driver is available through the FreeBSD ports system. Please email your questions and/or suggestion directly to Bartosz Fabianowski, the Wacom FreeBSD developer.
