Wacom Serial Tablet PC Stylus

This is a stylus made for tablet PCs by Wacom.

Features

  • Chipset: Wacom
  • Serial: irq 5 port 0x0200

XOrg Wacom driver

The pen uses serial and appears on some /dev/ttySnn device where nn is a number. An easy way to find it is to map /dev/ttyS0 to the pen's port and irq. The values can be found under the windows driver properties. Using values from an X41 1869-5CU, the command is:

   setserial /dev/ttyS0 port 0x0200 irq 5 autoconfig 

This may be inserted into startup scripts in /etc/rc.d/

The X config file needs to be changed to use the stylus. Add the following sections to your xorg.conf:

   Section "InputDevice"
     Driver        "wacom"
     Identifier    "cursor"
     Option        "Device"        "/dev/ttyS0"
     Option        "Type"          "cursor"
     Option        "ForceDevice"   "ISDV4"     
     Option        "Mode"          "Absolute"
   EndSection
   
   Section "InputDevice"
     Driver        "wacom"
     Identifier    "stylus"
     Option        "Device"        "/dev/ttyS0"
     Option        "Type"          "stylus"
     Option        "ForceDevice"   "ISDV4"
   EndSection


Add the following lines to the ServerLayout section:

   InputDevice    "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
   InputDevice    "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"

Check the wacom driver man page and website for other options.
