I'm not sure, this package works with legacy version of drivers. Since some time I'm not able to match the rules anymore (when driver switched to xinput). When I find some time around early February I will contact upstream about it and we will look for solution. Until then, this package isn't really needed anynore, because all devices should be available in /dev/input/by-id and you should be able to use those.

Just hit the rule problem for wacom-stylus and wacom-touch device nodes. Any chance of a package update?

@manvalls - sorry for late reply. The 3.17.x branch of drivers moved the driver from USB to HID, as with - if removing DRIVERS=="wacom" worked, it means you are not using wacom driver but generic evdev. Are you sure you are using xf86-input-wacom at least 0.26.0 (packaged 2014-09-13)? Since this release, the device should have the driver set to wacom. Also, check if you do not have /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf.pacnew or similar (i.e. you are using older version).

In the meantime, I will update this package soon, as I will have ability to do some tests again.

# Multiple interface support for stylus and touch devices.
DRIVERS=="wacom", ATTRS{bInterfaceNumber}=="00", ENV{WACOM_TYPE}="stylus"
DRIVERS=="wacom", ATTRS{bInterfaceNumber}=="01", ENV{WACOM_TYPE}="touch"


# Multiple interface support for stylus and touch devices.
ATTRS{bInterfaceNumber}=="00", ENV{WACOM_TYPE}="stylus"
ATTRS{bInterfaceNumber}=="01", ENV{WACOM_TYPE}="touch"

for it to work right

I will have to check, but this will take some time, as I lent my tablet to another person, so I don't have any device to test currently. Can you provide me with your modified rule that works so I can compare it? Thanks.

Apparently the rules had been broken after 3.17.1-1 kernel update, atleast for my CTH-670(tablet-bamboo-16fg-6x8).
The symbolinks it generated are without ENV{WACOM_TYPE}and linked to the wrong nodes.

Specifying my own rule solved my problem, so I'd think something had gone wrong here.

I've added rules for new devices.

giniu commented on 2012-07-08 11:13

I moved the rules, and updated to include two new devices at the same time (tablet pc with ids 0xed and 0xef)

You should put these in /usr/lib/wacom/rules.d, not /lib/wacom/rules.d.

I think they'd belong there anyways, and since /lib is going to get removed this breaks the upgrade of glibc in testing right now.

corrected PKGBUILD:

New rules for Intuos 5 (Touch S, Touch M, Touch L, S, M - with ids 0x26-0x2a), the new Wacom Wireless Receiver (id 0x84) and multi touch TPC (id 0xe5).
