Manually adding missing tablet devices
======================================
This method shouldn't really be used anymore unless you've encountered problems with kde_wacom_tabletfinder
### Step 1) Get real internal Tablet name ###
xsetwacom list dev
for my Wacom Bamboo:
Wacom Bamboo eraser ERASER
Wacom Bamboo cursor CURSOR
Wacom Bamboo pad PAD
Wacom Bamboo STYLUS
### Step 2) Then you need the Tablet ID ###
xsetwacom get "Wacom Bamboo" tabletid
for my Wacom Bamboo:
101
### Step 3) Transform it into Hexadecimal ###
For my Wacom Bamboo: 0065
### Step 4) Add a new section into either ~/.config/tabletdblocalrc or the right datafile in /usr/share/wacomtablet/data/ ###
for the Wacom Bamboo the right file is: wacom_devicelist
Add a new entry
for my Wacom Bamboo:
[0065]
model=MTE_450 # try to google for it but not used right now
layout=bl_6 # can be empty if no button layout is available that exists (see images dir)
name=Wacom Bamboo # name as found above
padbuttons=4 # available buttons on the pad
wheel=no
touchring=yes
touchstripl=no
touchstripr=no
hwbutton1=1 # these mag the physical button numbers to what the XServer likes to name them
hwbutton2=2 # see below for more information
hwbutton3=3
hwbutton4=8
### hwbuttonX explanation ###
Kernels >= 2.6.38 renamed the buttons for some reason.
xsetwacom does not work with the physical 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:
* uninstall 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
