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

how to

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
