Postby altabraydon on Sat Jan 02, 2010 6:41 am

I am on a pc and from everything I can see my wacom bamboo pen is supposed to work out of the box in linux mint 8. I tried to install versions of the wacom bamboo driver off of the site and downloaded all the dependencies... idk real noob action here I guess can someone help me out. I also looked at the ubuntu site... just not much luck

Okay so I changed the fdi file to what it says and pulled up wacomcpl (which is a command I didn't know about before-hand (all the stuff I have on linux before has been plug and play lol)) it gave me errors. It said
Code: Select all
can't read "isLCD(212)": no such element in array
can't read "isLCD(212)": no such element in array
    while executing
"if { ![ string compare $type "pad" ] } {
       if { $hasPad($model) } {
      createPanel 0 1 0 0
       }
   } elseif { ![ string compare $type "touch" ] } {
..."
    (procedure "updateDevice" line 24)
    invoked from within
"updateDevice"
    (command bound to event)

Have you tried setting it up in Gimp preferences/options?

I was using a wacom tablet on Ubuntu 8.10 and CentOS 5.3... everything worked flawlessly as soon as I plugged it in. I just installed Mint 8 over the holidays. Haven't had a chance to try it yet. I hope I do not run into errors :(

I'll try it asap.

Edit: Works flawlessly. Then again, it is not a Bamboo. It's a Wacom "Tablet (White Quartz)". It's older, but if you need a tablet it works flawlessly out of the box.
