hwbuttonX explanantion:
Kernels >= 2.6.38 renamed the buttons for some reason.
xsetwacom does not work with the pysical hardware button numbers 1-X
but rather with the real numbers as seen by the XServer
In case you run into trouble with the buttons do the following:
* deinstall the kded/kcm ;)
* disconnect/reconnect the tablet
* run xev in the terminal
* move the mouse over the new window
* press the hardware buttons and write down what button xev sees
and now update the wacom_device list accordingly
for the new Pen & touch tablets before the kernel 2.6.38 we got
hwbutton1=1
hwbutton2=2
hwbutton3=3
hwbutton4=8
for kernels >= 2.6.38 we get
hwbutton1=3
hwbutton2=8
hwbutton3=9
hwbutton4=1
