Aiptek APT-2 Tablet . need help setting it up..please...

hello big_smile i am quite new to arch linux. ..just got it up and running 2 months ago

Recently i dug up the old aiptek tablet...got the drivers from the repo  and followed the guides
Um..i been following through the guides at
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=38331
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=61837
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AiptekTablet

It still doesnt work.
i have now removed all traces of aiptek from xorg.conf and
is only using /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-aiptek.fdi

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<device>
  <match key="info.product" contains="Aiptek">
   <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">aiptek</merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents" type="string">true </merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.USB" type="string">On</merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.Type" type="string">stylus</merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.Mode" type="string">absolute</merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.zMin" type="string">0</merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.zMax" type="string">511</merge>
   <merge key="input.x11_options.KeepShape" type="string">on</merge>
  </match>
</device>
</deviceinfo>

However ..when i plug in Aiptek tablet into usb , i get a message from dmesg saying

usbcore: registered new interface driver aiptek
aiptek: v2.3 (May 2, 2007):Aiptek HyperPen USB Tablet Driver (Linux 2.6.x)

usb 2-7: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
aiptek 2-7:1.0: Aiptek tried all speeds, no sane response
aiptek: probe of 2-7:1.0 failed with error -12

Um..i have seriously no idea here..stuck at here..:(
Any help would be much appreciated (:

Hello fplolz!

Can you see that in the output of lsusb ?

"It still doesnt work." -> What's the error message ?

The author of aiptek driver?
offically , aiptek doesnt have drivers for linux

But third party people have made it
Um..they have a website...
http://aiptektablet.sourceforge.net/

They only provide rpm and i cant seem to compile the source.
other than that..the drivers needed are already in the archs repositries

hmm ..man...

Re: Aiptek APT-2 Tablet . need help setting it up..please...

Maybe I'm missing something, but at least some aiptek tablet drivers were merged into the mainline kernel a while ago:

pacman  -Ql kernel26 | grep aiptek
kernel26 /lib/modules/2.6.30-ARCH/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/aiptek.ko
kernel26 /usr/src/linux-2.6.30-ARCH/include/config/tablet/usb/aiptek.h

Re: Aiptek APT-2 Tablet . need help setting it up..please...

/etc/X11/xorg.conf make 50-aiptek.conf
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "pen"
        MatchProduct "Aiptek|AIPTEK|aiptek"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "aiptek"
        Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
        Option "USB" "on"
        Option "Type" "stylus"
        Option "Mode" "absolute"
        Option "zMin" "0"
        Option "zMax" "511"
EndSection

/etc/udev/rules.d/ make 69-xsever-xorg-input-aiptek.rules :

ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="xorg_aiptek_end"
KERNEL!="event[0-9]*", GOTO="xorg_aiptek_end"

ATTRS{idVendor}=="08ca", ENV{x11_driver}="aiptek", SYMLINK+="input/aiptektablet"

LABEL="xorg_aiptek_end"

restart system (do not change name of files like 20-aiptek.conf, 20-aiptek.rules) ,I use Kernel Linux 3.7.4-1-ARCH, 64 or 32 works perfectly

Use Trust TB2100 - rebrand of Aiptek APT-2:

Re: Aiptek APT-2 Tablet . need help setting it up..please...

You do have xf86-input-aiptek installed don't you?
All I had to do to get a wacom tablet going was just to install xf86-input-wacom, but it was a serial pen.

Huh?  Here's a solution according to someone else having the same problem.
