I have a Wacom Graphire4 6x8 tablet and I'm trying to get it working in Slackware 12 with a 188.8.131.52 kernel. Well, actually it works fine but I can't configure it, nor will any application recognize it.
I plugged it into the USB port and configured X.org for a wacom tablet and it started working as a pointer fine. All the buttons work for it, the scroll does too. Wacdump shows all the buttons and every option working fine when it comes up as /dev/input/event2 or whichever it is. The problem is that xsetwacom, the gimp, and any other application that I use doesn't recognize the device, and any options for the table that I give in the X.org configuration don't work at all. Right now it's basically just a mouse; it uses no tilt or pressure.
I tried installing a new kernel and I used the --enable-wacom options and such, but that didn't do anything.
"grep -i wacom /var/log/messages | tail" gives me this:
Oct 14 23:03:54 roint kernel: /home/roint/linuxwacom-0.7.8-3/src/2.6.19/wacom_sys.c: v1.46-pc0.1:USB Wacom Graphire and Wacom Intuos tablet driver
Oct 14 23:12:50 roint kernel: input: Wacom Graphire4 6x8 as /class/input/input2
Oct 14 23:12:50 roint kernel: usbcore: registered new interface driver wacom

Bus 2 Device 2: ID 056a:0016 Wacom Co., Ltd
I'm sure that the X.org configure syntax is fine:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event2"
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "USB" "on" # USB ONLY
Option "Mode" "Absolute"
Option "Threshold" "10"
Option "TopX" "0"
Option "TopY" "0"
Option "BottomX" "1024"
Option "BottomY" "768"
I've got the input devices in the server layout section:
InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
And I added this at one point but it didn't do anything:
Can anyone help? It's late and if I left anything out just ask and I can check. I'd like to work through this no matter what, so please give any suggestions you can. Configuring these graphics tablets is scary. I've googled on it for hours and it seems like everyone has a different problem.
