Wacom One (CTL-762) on Linux Mint 18.3

Post by movstox »

hi all,

trying to get Wacom One working.
It shows via `lsusb` as `Bus 002 Device 007: ID 056a:037b Wacom Co., Ltd`, but doesn't work yet in GIMP or appear in 'Graphic Tablets'.

anyone can help? many thanks!

Please install kernel Ubuntu updater. With its help install latest version of kernel 4.10. Reboot and test
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.
Regards,
Deepak

I am using Mint 20 Cinnamon 64 bit with AMD A8/7410 processor . Memory 8GB

if you use the Mate desktop, it does not have a config icon for tablets; Cinnamon does; so best to use Cinnamon?

a forum member; ArtGirl; uses tablets for graphics and hopefully she can read the thread and advise;

do clips like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMM0n_fuqlA offer any help?

when I google on "CTL-762" I just seem to get hits for "CTL-761" .......... a 762 seems a very reclusive and shy variant ..

the ever-hardworking Mint development team were hoping to spend more time "tweaking" graphic tablet support for Mint; we hope it all works out for them

Running the latest kernel available for Mint - 4.13.0-19-generic.
Installed xserver-xorg-input-wacom, libwacom2, and libwacom-common.
Still no luck (see screenshot). I believe it should at least work like a mouse.

so you are running Cinnamon to get that screenshot? ....... I am assuming it came from the config icon for tablets in Cinnamon ..

when you say
Installed xserver-xorg-input-wacom, libwacom2, and libwacom-common.
I just wondered what the version numbers are; as we have them already in Mint .. seems to me they are part of a Mint install but happy to be corrected

...are you sure it's CTL-762, and not CTL-672?

I'm asking because i can't find anything for 'CTL-762' in Wacom's site, however, for 'CTL-672' support appears to have been added recently...

Yea, sorry. It is CTL-672. How do I apply that patch? Hm.

I'm afraid my knowledge doesn't extend that far, however there exists a discussion about it on the Linux Wacom Tablet's mailing lists that you could ask about...

Was able to get it working by downloading & compiling the latest driver from http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/wiki/ ... nput-wacom after adding following lines to respective sections in wacom_wac.c:

Code: Select all

static const struct wacom_features wacom_features_0x37A =
	{ "One by Wacom S", 15200, 9500, 2047, 63,
	  BAMBOO_PEN, WACOM_INTUOS_RES, WACOM_INTUOS_RES };
static const struct wacom_features wacom_features_0x37B =
	{ "One by Wacom M", 21600, 13530, 2047, 63,
	  BAMBOO_PEN, WACOM_INTUOS_RES, WACOM_INTUOS_RES };

Code: Select all

	{ USB_DEVICE_WACOM(0x37A) },
	{ USB_DEVICE_WACOM(0x37B) },

Just stumbled by coincidence upon this, and i remembered this thread and the tablet in question...
Ie. on 4.16, no need for the re-compiling / patching hassle anymore...
