Wacom Graphire4 Classic Xl kubuntu 9.10


how to

wacom-graphire4_bigStatus : works perfectly

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

    New kubuntu 9.10 doesn’t need to edit your xorg.conf anymore you need only to set well your buttons and the wheel , but the name and the way to change those things are changed.

    ** if you have a wacom but a different one you can check the correct name you should use by typing this on a terminal :

      xinput --list

  • 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 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' RelWUp "core key  +" && xsetwacom set 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' RelWDn "core key  -" &&  xsetwacom set 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' Button1 "core key  a" &&  xsetwacom set 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' Button2 "core key  b" 
  • 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 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' RelWUp "core key  +" && xsetwacom set 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' RelWDn "core key  -" &&  xsetwacom set 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' Button1 "core key  a" &&  xsetwacom set 'Wacom Graphire4 4x5 pad' Button2 "core key  b"

    of couse you have to set like executable

    chmod +x wacom

    usefull stuff for kde now we have a kcm module and so🙂 i think you should use it

    wacom,tabkletsetijgs

    here it is

    and as you can see on Readme it’s pretty simple install it

    unpack it go in the folder where you have just extracted this kmc module and

    mkdir build && cd build && cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release

    ** if you get errors you should use apt-file seach ERROR , i think you need only kdelib5-dev and xorg-dev

    then

    make -j3 ; #if you don't get errors ; sudo make install ; kbuildsycoca4
