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.
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.
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. 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.
The Linux Wacom project provides three mailing lists:
- linuxwacom-announce (archives)is a low-volume mailing list announcing new software releases.
- linuxwacom-devel (archives) is the developer's mailing list. If you have patches for linuxwacom or you want to contribute in other ways, please subscribe to this list.
- linuxwacom-discuss (archives) is a list for general discussions and user problems.
The archives for these lists are also useful for searching problems you are encountering.
The most recent updates are available in the News section, including bug fixes, recently discovered problems, available solutions, and general development progress.
