Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

hi,
I bought the Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch (CTH-460) and tried to install it.
I tried several wikis and read through some threads with similar problems without any success.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wacom_Tablet
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=732518
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=112059

I tried the packages:
xf86-wacom-input
from AUR:
linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl 0.10.10-17 (currently installed)
xf86-input-wacom-git (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=32033)

there was no difference in behaviour.


Here are some pastes:

- /etc/udev/rules.d/10-wacom.rules (unchanged from package)
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/334540/

- /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf (unchanged from package)
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/334541/

- /proc/bus/input/devices (tablet is plugged in)
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/334544/

- /proc/bus/usb/devices doesn't exist

The only thing dmesg shows when plugging in and out:

usb 1-1.4: USB disconnect, address 7
usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8

in Xorg logs, Wacom is not mentioned.

lsusb | grep Wacom

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 056a:00d6 Wacom Co., Ltd 

lsmod | grep -i wacom

wacom                  30067  0 
usbcore               139048  6 usbhid,uas,usb_storage,ehci_hcd,wacom

I tried also this:

- /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/334546/

Mouse symlink is being generated but not the wacom:
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/334547/

which leads to the assumption, that none of the event* is my tablet, am I right?

Edit: I tried the tablet on another machine with Windows XP. It worked there without problems, so the tablet should be working.

I hope someone has an idea on what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks in advance

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

Just a stab in the dark, do you have xf86-input-evdev installed too?

I have a CTL-460 that works now with 2.6.37 and xf86-input-wacom (without the AUR package, which I needed before 2.6.37)

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

yes, it's installed

Edit: should I try to remove it?
doesn't even work. xorg needs that package

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

Have you tried removing the two AUR packages (linuxwacom-cth-ctl and xf86-input-wacom-git) along with any changes/udev rules you made and install just xf86-input-wacom from [extra]? You're on kernel 2.6.37 too correct?

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

yes I'm on the 2.6.37 kernel.

When I got my tablet I first installed the xf86-input-wacom from the repo. It didn't work that time. After reading and trying I stumbled on those other packages, which are conflicting with each other.
I might try to install the xf86-input-wacom one more time.

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

Did you restart X after installing the xf86-input-wacom package? I'm pretty sure I had to do so before the tablet fully worked

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

I restarted my computer.
Nothing changed.

actually I don't think it's a matter of xorg here (just an assumption based on the data in my first post)

I'm not an expert so I'm just guessing
I think the problem is somewhere around that part, where the system should register the usb device as an input device, which is not happening.
It's showing up in lsusb, so it's being recognised as usb device, but somehow the wacom driver or whatever is not doing it's job how it's supposed to be...?

Edit: I'm using a 64bit system (and multilib repo). could there be a problem with that?

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

True True...

Perhaps try modprobbing the wacom module after plugging it in?
Edit: nevermind, just noticed the module is loading on your system
I don't think that should be a problem, I'm also using a 64-bit system with [multilib] enabled.

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

nope.. nothing hmm

dmesg tells when modprobbing:

usbcore: deregistering interface driver wacom
usbcore: registered new interface driver wacom
wacom: v1.52:USB Wacom tablet driver

when I plug the tablet in and out:

usb 1-1.4: USB disconnect, address 5
usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6

no matter in which order...

it's not showing up in /proc/bus/input/devices either.... hmm

I'm really becoming desperate... >_<

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

I'm really stumped :[ It should be working (found the commit for kernel 2.6.37, the CTH-460 should be supported)

Do you have any other custom udev rules that may be conflicting?

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

I don't think so..

- /etc/udev/rules.d/
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/336058/
the 70-wacom is from the package.

- /etc/udev/rules.d/
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/336059/

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

What is in /etc/udev/rules.d/99-evdev.conf ? (I don't have that in my system)

Also, the first listing is for /lib/udev/rules.d, correct?

Edit: By your id, it looks like you have the new Pen&Touch (461-CHT) which should still be supported, but might not be... Perhaps you should try installing linuxwacom-ctl-cth from AUR again, restart and see if it works hmm

yes of course. copypasta fail there

well. It wouldn't be the first time... so I guess I might try it again ^^

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

hehe, of course it didn't change a thing.

the package uses different udev rules. the one in /lib/udev/rules.d disappeared, and /etc/udev/rules.d/10-wacom.rules showed up.
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/336082/

but still not working... D:

Edit: I'm now trying to download and install ubuntu on another machine, to see if it's working there.
If it works I'm trying to.. somehow make out the differences and hopefully be able to get it working... if not... well, I don't want to imagine a „what if not“ situation.

Re: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch not recognised by udev(?)

usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
input: Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5 Pen as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.4/1-1.4:1.0/input/input5
input: Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5 Finger as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.4/1-1.4:1.1/input/input6

So I downloaded the input-wacom kernel driver source from linuxwacom.sf.net, applied the patch mentioned here:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=de … tid=525124
and now I'm going to restart X to see if it worked.

Well it's showing up in /proc/bus/input/devices now:
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/336182/

and the Input devices are visible in /dev/input:
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/336183/
if I use cat on them there does not show up any raw data

that's at least a little bit of progress, but I still can't use it (mouse doesn't move, even after a restart)
Xorg logfile: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/336189/

that's showing up in kernel logfile:

Feb 11 02:15:20 localhost kernel: usb 1-1.4: USB disconnect, address 4
Feb 11 02:15:20 localhost kernel: wacom: wacom_sys_irq - usb_submit_urb failed with result -19
Feb 11 02:15:24 localhost kernel: usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
Feb 11 02:15:24 localhost kernel: input: Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5 Pen as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.4/1-1.4:1.0/input/input7
Feb 11 02:15:24 localhost kernel: input: Wacom BambooPT 2FG 4x5 Finger as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.4/1-1.4:1.1/input/input8

EDIT:
I installed the package from AUR again (linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl)
Now it's working!
Pen is just fine (at least up till now) only the touch function is a little bit odd. I'm gonna try to fix that tomorrow
