wacom-graphire4_big status : works perfectly

HOW CAN RESET what i have done in this article i get a terminal and linux interface doesn’t start anymore? ——–> type this :

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

  • Check if you have installed these packages:
  • sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wacom wacom-tools

  • then type this to edit xorg.conf (** instead of nano you can use kate for kde or gedit for gnome)
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    add the section you need (bold one)

    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

  • Restart X then you can use this to combine button 1 —> A button 2 —>B wheell up—> + wheel down –> – if you want another association you can edit this command line:
  • xsetwacom set pad Button1 "core key a"  &&  xsetwacom set pad Button2 "core key b" && xsetwacom set pad RelWUp  "key core +" && xsetwacom set pad RelWDn "key core -"
  • if you want autostart these stuff you need only to add to $HOME/.kde/Autostart a little script like that (i called it wacom)
  • #!/bin/bash
    xsetwacom set pad Button1 “core key a” && xsetwacom set pad Button2 “core key b” && xsetwacom set pad RelWUp “key core +” && xsetwacom set pad RelWDn “key core -“

    of couse you have to set like executable

    chmod +x wacom
