Cannot get new Wacom Bamboo Tablet 460CTL to work on my Centos 5.7 Deskto and KDE Env
I cannot get my new Wacom Bamboo connect Tablet and Pen to work on my CentOs 5.7 system using KDE desktop.
I downloaded and installed the LinuxWacom pkg from Sourceforge and those files which I could install using yum installed without a problem. It was not enough however to get the tablet working, it is not even recognised as a tablet when I plug it in the USB port.
I then tried to configure the xf86-input-wacom-0.10.9 file also downloaded from Sourceforge, which I could not configure because it 1-could not find my Xorg-server and Xorg-macros nor was the Xorg package sufficiently hight enough for this installation but I have found no solution to this anywhere although thee are those who;ve got this model to work on their machines - any ideas, I really need the tablet this is killing my productivity it is becoming painfully frustrating that I cannot figure it out. I am still a novice to CentOs or Linux, i still navigate the system with amazement and angst. I would really apapreciate any help yoou can give me.
