1. Hi Mark,

    I too have one of these tablets, and was wondering if/how you got the buttons on the pen to work, and if/how you got the buttons around the side of the pad to work.

    The pen buttons seem to work and be mapped to the mouse buttons, but I can’t figure out how to map them to other functions in eg The Gimp. I can’t get the buttons around the outside of the pad to do anything.


  2. Thanks for your blog. I’ve recently come across a VisTablet PenPad. Using a patch similar to yours I get pressure sensitivity in inkscape and gimp. I’ve even submitted a patch to the linuxwacom folks, so hopefully that gets committed upstream.

    I’ve got some questions for you. Both of my buttons send the same button event (though this is not the case in MacOS). Do you see this?

    Also how does the eraser function? I’m not sure that mine has an eraser, but I’m curious.

    The printer neglecting most not-WACOM tablets has a reason: Almost every source file has this 2nd line:

    However, linux hater has a point… though I don’t like him/her calling names (s/he entitles ‘linux users’ as lusers). Somehow I had to think about http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=name+calling



  4. Thanks, After weeks of trying, your post helped the most.

    I was able to setup my Genius F610 in Debian Squeeze. Though I was directed to the git version of xf86-input-wacom. No code modifications necessary. Just had to compile and install. http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/linuxwacom/index.php?title=Xf86-input-wacom

    Still tweaking the buttons & calibration, but everything is working well (mainly pressure in Gimp, MyPaint, Blender, etc.).
