Configuring a Wacom Tablet

I'm attempting to configure my Bamboo wacom tablet control to a setting that I like.  While I've mostly got the tablet conditions to the ones I like, I can't adjust the speed cursor when I move around the stylus.  Any ideas how to change this?

Edit: I forgot to mention that I was trying to get pressure sensitivity in there as well.

I'm using the linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl drivers.  My /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf looks as follows:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Wacom class"
# WALTOP needs a patched kernel driver, that isn't in mainline lk yet,
# so for now just let it fall through and be picked up by evdev instead.
#    MatchProduct "Wacom|WALTOP|WACOM"
    MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM|Hanwang"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "wacom"
    Option "Mode" "Relative"
    Option "Threshold" "5"
    Option "Speed" "0.5"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Wacom serial class"
    MatchProduct "Serial Wacom Tablet"
    Driver "wacom"
    Option "Mode" "Relative"
    Option "Threshold" "5"
    Option "Speed" "0.5"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom serial class identifiers"
        MatchProduct "WACf|FUJ02e5|FUJ02e7"
        Driver "wacom"
    Option "Mode" "Relative"
    Option "Threshold" "5"
    Option "Speed" "0.5"
EndSection

# N-Trig Duosense Electromagnetic Digitizer
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Wacom N-Trig class"
    MatchProduct "HID 1b96:0001|N-Trig Pen"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "wacom"
    Option "Button2" "3"
    Option "Mode" "Relative"
    Option "Threshold" "5"
    Option "Speed" "0.5"
EndSection

Re: Configuring a Wacom Tablet

Hmm, after changing the configuration to this, I noticed the pressure sensitivity was indeed there, just hardly noticeable.  I guess that part is working.  No noticeable difference in cursor speed, however.

Re: Configuring a Wacom Tablet

I hate bumping threads, but I'm rather desperate in figuring how to make the pointer slower for the wacom tablets.

Re: Configuring a Wacom Tablet

I've always used Option "Mode" "Absolute" for my tablet so the cursor position always matches the screen, apologies if this is not what you require.

Sorry for the late response.

Yes, unfortunately I'd rather stick with Relative mode than Absolute.  Your help is much appreciated, however.

Re: Configuring a Wacom Tablet

Well, I'd recommend using xsetwacom, then you get instant feedback for what you set. Also, in 0.10.11 there were lots of parameter name changes, like "PressCurve"->"PressureCurve". Check Table of New Parameter Names on Wacom wiki.

About speed, there is no such parameter now, but there are multiple solutions. Google for xf86-input-wacom+SpeedLevel and you will get multiple solutions which include resolution change or xinput options.

Thanks a lot for that advice.  Briefly looking at it, here's what (I think) my settings looks like:

$ xsetwacom get "Wacom Bamboo Pen Pen stylus" all
Option "Area" "0 0 14720 9200"
Option "ToolDebugLevel" "0"
Option "TabletDebugLevel" "0"
Option "Suppress" "4"
Option "RawSample" "2"
Option "PressureCurve" "0 0 100 100"
Option "Mode" "Relative"
Option "TabletPCButton" "off"
Option "Touch" "off"
Option "Gesture" "off"
Option "ZoomDistance" "50"
Option "ScrollDistance" "20"
Option "TapTime" "250"
Option "Capacity" "-1"
Property 'Wacom Proximity Threshold' does not exist on device.
Option "Rotate" "none"
Property 'Wacom Wheel Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Wheel Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Wheel Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Wheel Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Strip Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Strip Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Strip Buttons' does not exist on device.
Property 'Wacom Strip Buttons' does not exist on device.
Option "RawFilter" "on"
Option "Threshold" "2000"
Option "ToolID" "273"
Option "ToolSerial" "0"
Option "TabletID" "212"

...One of those changes the mouse cursor speed....right (and yes, I'm googling it now)?
