Wacom Tablet Drivers

PPA description

Updated drivers for the Wacom Tablet. See also
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1515562.

Supported devices (see also the forum thread whether you need this PPA):
- version 0.12.1-0ubuntu1~ppa3 in 11.04 Natty: up to Bamboo 3rd generation,
  Intuous4 (and possibly other models).
- version 0.12.1-0ubuntu1~ppa4 in 11.10 Oneiric: up to Cintiq24HD.
- version 0.13.0 in 12.04 Precise: up to Intuous5.
Note that the Intuous5 cannot be used in versions older than 12.04 Precise
because of outdated Xorg drivers (xserver-xorg-input-wacom).

This repository provides the wacom-dkms package. This installs an updated kernel
module, "wacom", using DKMS. DKMS takes care of updating the kernel module each
time your kernel is upgraded, so you only have to install this package once.
After installation, unload the old kernel driver and reload the new one with:

    sudo modprobe -v -r wacom; sudo modprobe -v wacom
After doing so, your device should immediately be recognized (i.e. you can move
the pointer with your pen).

If you do not need this PPA anymore, you can uninstall the "wacom-dkms" package
and remove the sources file or just run:

    sudo ppa-purge ppa:lekensteyn/wacom-tablet
