How to install driver for Wacom tablets
This guide shows how to install the drivers needed to make more recent Wacom tablets work in Salix 14.1
Note that the xf86-input-wacom package, available from the repositories, is intended to provide full support for Wacom tablets, and should be tried first. If it doesn't work, a more recent driver may be needed.
Prepare and build
Kernel source is needed for the build:
sudo spi -i kernel-source
Download and unpack the tarball, and build the driver:
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/xf86-input-wacom/input-wacom/input-wacom-0.23.0.tar.gz tar -xf input-wacom-0.23.0.tar.gz cd input-wacom-0.23.0 ./configure --prefix=/usr
Note that more recent versions of the input-wacom script don't work in the same way; this one worked with my tablet.
Install the driver
Follow the instructions output by the script to copy the driver needed for your tablet to the right place under /lib/modules; use sudo to gain root privileges. Then rebuild module dependencies:
sudo depmod -a
