serial wacom tablet on ubuntu 7.10


Ok so I have a wacom tablet that plugs in through serial. I've tried downloading the package from linuxwacom, I've downloaded available packages through synaptic, and tried various things with the xorg.conf but all to no avail.

this is my xorg.conf as of right now. where it says /dev/ttyS0 I have also tried /dev/input/wacom

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	
	# Uncomment if you have a wacom tablet
		InputDevice     "stylus"	"SendCoreEvents"

	EndSubSection
EndSection

EndSection
Any help would be appreciated.

I have to run
Code:
/sbin/setserial /dev/ttyS0 port 0x0200 irq 5 autoconfig
to get my tablet's stylus to work. I don't know if this'll work for you, but it's something to think about.
