Does Mint support Aiptek 12000u Hyperpen graphics Tablet?

Postby LinuxForever » Wed Aug 27, 2008 4:01 am

I'm posting this for a friend. He has an Hp Compaq nc8430 laptop and an Aiptek 12000u Hyperpen Tablet. He's using Ubuntu and it doesn't support his tablet. He said if Mint supports his tablet he will change to Mint.

Does Mint support the Aiptek 12000u Hyperpen graphics Tablet? Thank you for any help.

Both ubuntu hardy and Elyssa should work.
He just needs to install xserver-xorg-input-aiptek.
Then skip to step 4 here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=122735
Don't compile the older driver.
The one installed is a newer version so it should work by continuing from step 4.
