Erik Johansson
Hi

I just wondered when 0.24 including commit https://sourceforge.net/p/linuxwacom/libwacom/ci/870af19b1da2d1bdcf7a20e5c63bec603085dfdc/ might be released?

We just received a load and i'd like to avoid compiling everything from source.

Cheers,
Erik

side-note here: libwacom data files can be dropped into your local directory
and they'll work. No recompilation needed unless a file introduces a new
feature that needs library support.

Re: Next relase

I did not have any success with that.

I rebuilt the latets rpm from fedora rawhide to work with centos 7. Our older tablets works fine.

Then i dropped the files from the commit in 

[erjo@3d119 ~]$ locate intuos-pro-2
/usr/share/libwacom/intuos-pro-2-l.tablet
/usr/share/libwacom/intuos-pro-2-m.tablet
/usr/share/libwacom/layouts/intuos-pro-2-l.svg
/usr/share/libwacom/layouts/intuos-pro-2-m.svg


[erjo@3d119 ~]$ lsusb | grep Wacom
Bus 003 Device 008: ID 056a:0358 Wacom Co., Ltd 


This should from my understanding be the file /usr/share/libwacom/intuos-pro-2-l.tablet but it ain't working for me.


Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Erik

You'll want to use the command `libwacom-list-local-devices` to
determine if libwacom recognizes your tablet. The name printed out
from `lsusb` comes from the "usb.ids" file that is part of the generic
"hwdata" package. We try to push updates out to the maintainers of
"usb.ids" as new devices come out, but it in no way indicates whether
your system can use the device :)

Re: Next relase

libwacom-list-local-devices returns nothing unfortunately so I guess libwacom don't work with this device yet.


This was the rpm I rebuilt for Centos 7

Anyone got these new devices working?

Cheers,
Erik

are you on the default centos kernel or a custom one? I don't think we have
support for those devices in RHEL (going off the top of my head here). so
libwacom may support it, but if the kernel doesn't then it won't work
anyway.

Think it is pretty much the latest from the centos 7.3 repository

Got any idea what version of the kernel might be needed for it to work?

are you on the default centos kernel or a custom one? I don't think we have
support for those devices in RHEL (going off the top of my head here). so
libwacom may support it, but if the kernel doesn't then it won't work
anyway.

It's a new device. The suppport will be in kernel 4.11 first. It will take sometime for distro to backport the support.
 
Got any idea what version of the kernel might be needed for it to work?

You need to update the kernel driver on your system through input-wacom: http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Downloads to make it work, if you can not wait for distro to catch up...

Hope this helps,

and an addendum: Centos is based on RHEL and the RHEL kernel is frozen at
the original version at release time for the lifetime of the product. We add
new hardware to it based on customer demand but this depends on what is
requested. We don't usually add new devices just because they become
available, so simply waiting for a future version may not be enough, we'll
need an explicit request filed in the RHEL bugzilla.

We compiled input-wacom and it works together with the data files.

Thanks for all the help!

Re: Next relase

Grant Street-2
In reply to this post by Peter Hutterer-3
Hello

It has always been a bug bear of mine that Wacom don't make the tablets kernel module agnostic AND don't provide information early enough to get the driver into the OS when the product releases AND they don't sell the older models. They are able to create drivers for windows and OSX just fine.

To help increase the importance of this could I ask that people subscribed to the list do the following, it would help Redhat et al understand the impact of not providing support.

I have created  a bugzilla case https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1420964 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1425237

And two Redhat cases 01789708 and 01789709

To help increase the importance of this could I ask that people subscribed to the list who use wacoms on RHEL et al do the following;

If you have a desktop on a RHEL subscription create a case.
If not if you could add an impact to the bugzilla links above.

Thanks Again

Grant

and an addendum: Centos is based on RHEL and the RHEL kernel is frozen at
the original version at release time for the lifetime of the product. We add
new hardware to it based on customer demand but this depends on what is
requested. We don't usually add new devices just because they become
available, so simply waiting for a future version may not be enough, we'll
need an explicit request filed in the RHEL bugzilla.

Cheers,

fwiw, there are some technical differences between macos/windows and the
linux kernel. AFAIK macos/windows are stable kernels in regards to writing
drivers.

The kernel has no internal ABI stability for drivers, it is thus a
moving target and each kernel version must be targeted separately.
Distributions provide that ABI stability (e.g. RHEL does it for the lifetime
of each major version) but obviously this also means you select a kernel to
start with and stick with that kernel (yes, a million things get
backported, but it's a one-by-one effort).

Wacom does maintain the input-wacom repository which provides a bunch of
backports for various kernel versions. That module is the equivalent of
downloading a driver on Win/macos and installing it.

also, quite some effort has gone into the kernel recently to make the driver
less dependent on specific tablets and supporting future tablets
out-of-the-box. but that work happened after the RHEL7.0 release.

Re: Next relase

Grant Street-2
First up, I completely understand that the Linux side is not straight forward and I  applaud the likes of Ping and yourself that do a great job supporting us.

I'm just frustrated that If Wacom provided the same information given to the windows driver developers to yourself and Ping, you could have the patches/back ports ready for release day.

Cause Once they release a new tablet your on borrowed time before you can't get the old tablet anymore.

Thanks again  
Grant Street

Re: Next relase

Jason Gerecke
Grant,

I understand your frustration. Supporting new hardware has always been a
race between retail availability and code completion. Although Wacom
certainly carries some of the blame for this situation, it's not due to
a lack of information. A significant source of delay is the open source
process itself: code should be accepted upstream before it is
backported, and even "fast" upstream acceptance may take a few days
while people are given a chance to review our patches. If any hiccups
occur in the process (e.g. concerns with our patches or difficulty
backporting them) the input-wacom release could easily be delayed by 1
month.

The real problem is that we have to write these patches to support every
new generation of tablets in the first place. As Peter mentioned, we've
been working to try and reduce the amount of dependence our driver has
on specific tablet models. Linux 4.10 is the first release
which in include some of this code and should -- fingers crossed --
support basic features of some yet-to-be-released devices. It will be a
while until the matured version of this code is widely available, but
I'm excited for that day...

Jason
