I cannot get my new Cintiq 12x draw tablet to work properly under Linux. My cursor just goes up and down, scrolling as fast as it can when I most the pen tool. When I hold the button, it moves to the right when I move up or down. The behavior is the same no matter what I put in my xorg.conf.
I am running Ubuntu/Kubuntu 8.04 Hardy with Kernel 2.6.24-19-generic.
When following the official guide for the Linux-Wacom drivers here:
I have a problem with the compiled driver (this is what the Linux-Wacom people said my problem was). In their step-by-step how-to,at this stage I have an error.
[root@linuxwacom]# cd src/2.4.22
[email@example.com]# /sbin/rmmod wacom
[firstname.lastname@example.org]# /sbin/insmod ./wacom.o
When I try to do sudo insmod ./wacom.o, I get the message:
insmod: error inserting 'wacom.o': -1 Invalid module format
Now, I have no problem doing insmod ./wacom.ko, but it fails at wacom.o. When I run sudo modprobe wacom, this is my /var/log/messages output:
Sep 12 17:57:16 kernel: [ 4832.711153] usbcore: registered new interface driver wacom
Sep 12 17:57:16 kernel: [ 4832.711161] /home/user/Desktop/linuxwacom-0.8.0-3/src/2.6.24/wacom_sys.c: v1.46-pc0.2:USB Wacom Graphire and Wacom Intuos tablet driver
According to the how-to docs:
The important detail is the version number. A version number like "1.46" is an original kernel version and not from the linuxwacom package. The correct version should also have the -j#.# or -pc#.# portion as well. This is to help differentiate between the stock kernel driver and those available from the Linux Wacom Project.
So I am not sure the compiled kernel is being loaded. I would love some help.
