After multiple Windows and Photoshop updates Wacom driver stopped working again, but I just copied PSUSerConfig.txt file to newer Photoshop folder (C:\\Users\\USERNAME\\AppData\\Roaming\\Adobe\\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 Settings) from older one and it is started to have pressure again.
Another thanks. I had Graphire 4 (CTE-430) working on a Windows 10 system (updated from Windows 7) but could not get it to work on a new Windows 10 computer. I had tried older drivers but not far enough back! When I chatted online with Wacom, person was more interested in directing me to their store to buy new tablet than fixing the issue.
You need to install the Wacom driver software on your computer before the pen display will work. Depending on your device and operating system, you might need to install the DisplayLink driver software as well.
Updated Wacom drivers are periodically made available on Wacom's Product Resources page (see instructions above) and in Wacom Center. Check in and update regularly so your device has the latest features and functionality.
Note: Adding permissions must be done within the first 30 minutes of installing the driver. If the driver was installed outside of the time window, please uninstall and reinstall the driver.
Note: When you add an item in Input Monitoring a message will appear notifying you the application must quit before changes will work. Please do so, however, you must restart your computer after this as the tablet and driver will not work correctly until after the restart.
A hardware driver is a small computer program that allows your computer to interact with Wacom products. It is important to download the most recent driver to ensure that your device is working properly and that you can access its full array of features.
I managed to get my Wacom Intuos GD-0912-U first generation tablet working in High Sierra, with a fully functional Wacom Preference Pane, by using a newer driver and preference pane (6.3.15-3), and hacking the preference pane file with the Info.plist replaced in the package with the Info.plist from the old preference pane
- I read somewhere that next versions of MacOS may not have the 32 bit option anymore, so steps 6-13 will may not work anymore after High Sierra. In that case, I imagine that the hacked preference file still may work, but only the future will tell. I am not sure what causes the hacked prefpane only to work correctly after the switch of System Prefs to 32bit and back is performed. Maybe in a new MacOS version the copied, hacked prefpane will just work. Just be sure to keep a copy of the prefpane and drivers to be safe.
The Arch Linux kernels include drivers by the linux-wacom and DIGImend projects. linux-wacom supports Wacom devices, while DIGImend supports devices from other manufacturers. Both projects publish a list of supported devices: linux-wacom, DIGImend. After connecting your tablet via USB or Bluetooth, it should show up when running dmesg as root and be listed in /proc/bus/input/devices. For USB devices, the lsusb command from usbutils should also show your tablet. If your tablet does not show up, or if certain features do not work, see #Device not recognized by the kernel.
Install the xf86-input-wacom Xorg driver. No additional configuration is required for Wacom devices, as the included /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf file will automatically load the wacom(4) driver when plugging Wacom devices. If your device is from another manufacturer, you will need to manually configure Xorg to use it with the wacom driver, which will allow configuring it through xsetwacom. Create a file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, where VID:PID is your USB ID as seen by lsusb:
The Xorg driver can be temporarily configured with xsetwacom, see xsetwacom(1). Changes are lost after X server restarts or replugging your tablet, see #Permanent configuration to view methods to keep your settings persistent.
It is possible to save your xsetwacom parameters in a shell script that is autostarted through udev with a custom systemd/User unit file. This approach is more complex than autostarting the shell script through your desktop environment or window manager, however, it will run the script every time the tablet is connected to the computer.
When you are using Wayland, graphics tablets are handled by libinput. In this scenario, configuration through xsetwacom is not possible. You can only configure your tablet through the settings that are available in your desktop environment or Wayland compositor.
Some tablets may be too recent to be supported by your current kernel. On Wacom devices, this is represented by a \"Unknown device_type\" message in your dmesg output. In this scenario, it is possible that the out-of-tree version of the drivers have support for your tablet before it is upstreamed to the kernel.
Your logs indicate that the correct driver is selected, and the tablet works. However, when running xsetwacom list devices or use similar tools that depend on the correct driver, you get an empty list.
A reason might be the execution order of your xorg configuration. /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d gets executed first, then /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. The package xf86-input-wacom contains the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf. If there is a catchall for tablets, executed after this file, the previously selected wacom driver will be overwritten with a generic one that does not work with xsetwacom et. al.
A manual configuration is done in /etc/X11/xorg.conf or in a separate file in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. The Wacom tablet device is accessed using an input event interface in /dev/input/ which is provided by the kernel driver. The interface number event is likely to change when unplugging and replugging into the same or especially a different USB port. Therefore it is wise to not refer to the device using its concrete event interface (static configuration) but by letting udev dynamically create a symbolic link to the correct event file (dynamic configuration).
If not, your device is likely to be not yet included in the udev configuration from wacom-udev which resides in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/wacom.rules. Copy the file to /etc/udev/rules.d/wacom.rules and modify it there.
In this example idVendor is 056a and idProduct 0062. In case you have device with touch (e.g. Bamboo Pen&Touch) you might need to add a second line for the touch input interface. For details check the linuxwacom wiki Fixed device files with udev.
Save the file and reload udev's configuration profile using the command udevadm control --reload-rules Check again the content of /dev/input to make sure that the wacom symlinks appeared. Note that you may need to plug-in the tablet again for the device to appear.
In either case, dynamic or static setup you got now one or two files in /dev/input/ which refer to the correct input event devices of your tablet. All that is left to do is add the relevant information to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, or a dedicated file under /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/. The exact configuration depends on your tablet's features of course. xsetwacom list devices might give helpful information on what InputDevice sections are needed for your tablet.
If you have a non-Wacom tablet that has missing features, you can report a tablet test to DIGImend drivers authors in order to include its functionalities into the driver. The DIGImend diagnostic tools are available on the AUR as uclogic-toolsAUR. You will also need the lsusb and usbhid-dump programs available in usbutils. 1e1e36bf2d
