Old serial, waited too long for answer

Thorsten Wilms
Hi there!

I have an Intuos gd-1212-r serial tablet which I used to get to work on
Ubuntu 12.04, thanks to https://github.com/RoaldFre/wacom_serial5.

Is that still necessary / does that still work on Ubuntu 14.04, given
X.Org X Server 1.15.1? My searches always lead to threads from 2011 to
2013, so I'm not sure about what is supported or not anymore since when.

What I do know is that my tablet is on /dev/ttyS0 (I get gibberish in
sync with pen movement, if i "cat" it). Xorg.0.log says:
[    13.429] (II) LoadModule: "wacom"
[    13.435] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/wacom_drv.so
[    13.437] (II) Module wacom: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
[    13.437] compiled for 1.15.0, module version = 0.23.0
[    13.437] Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
[    13.437] ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 20.0
[    13.437] (II) wacom: Driver for Wacom graphics tablets: <snip>
Intuos 12x12, ...

So the driver at least claims support. But:
[    17.141] (WW) stylus: Waited too long for answer (failed after 3 tries).
[    17.141] (WW) stylus: Query failed with 19200 baud. Trying 38400.
[    20.394] (WW) stylus: Waited too long for answer (failed after 3 tries).
[    20.395] (II) stylus: serial tablet id 0x90.
[    20.395] (EE) PreInit returned 8 for "stylus"
[    20.395] (II) UnloadModule: "wacom"

Re: Old serial, waited too long for answer

I have a Wacom Ituos 2 Serial, I use OpenSuse and KDE, so far so good, I got help here a while ago, this is the last post about it witht he instructions I follow:

********************************


With my thanks to Favux from the linuxwacom-discuss  mail list, who helped me step by step to make the installation of the 
neceesary driver and aditional tool so I was able to have my Wacom Intuos 2 Serial tablet working.



Installation for Wacom Intuos 2 Serial Tablet.

Some notes on my system:

My kernel: 3.4.11-2.16-default   (use uname -r command)
My X version: X.Org X Server 1.12.3  (use V -version)

I used a console logged as 'root', otherwise you have to use the 'sudo' prefix,




1) downloaded wacom_serial5 from RoaldFre, you can find it here:

https://github.com/RoaldFre/wacom_serial5

This downalod includes the inputattach.patch file that you'll need on step 2.

Extract the files into it's own directory, should be 'wacom_serial5'.

Compile and install with these commands:
----------------------------------------------------------------

cd wacom_serial5

make all

cp wacom_serial5.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet

depmod -a

----------------------------------------------------------------


2) Download linuxconsoletools-1.4.2 from the Linux Console Proyect here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxconsole/

Extract the files into it's own directory, should be linuxconsoletools-1-4.2

I have OpenSuse 12.2, to compile linuxconsoletools you need to have 'libsdl1.2-dev' installed, in the case of my distro, the
name is different: libSDL-1_2-0  so I had to install libSDL-devel, use YAST so it'll download the dependencies which can be several files.

Once installed you can patch inputattach and then compile and install linuxconsoletools:
----------------------------------------------------------------

cd linuxconsoletools-1.4.2

patch -p1 < ../wacom_serial5/inputattach.patch

make

make install

----------------------------------------------------------------

The resulting inputattach bin will be located on '/usr/local/bin/' and it's possible that  your console does not automatically
connects it to '/usr/bin', like it happened to me, so I specified the full path to activate inputattach: (make sure the tablet is pluged and 'on'.

----------------------------------------------------------------

/usr/local/bin/inputattach --wacom_v /dev/ttyS1

----------------------------------------------------------------

ttyS1 is COM2, where I have the tabled connected, if you have it connected on COM1 then you have to use ttyS0.


To auto-start that last command, copy the command to rc.local in /etc, do not use the 'sudo' prefix.

----------------------------------------------------------------

/usr/local/bin/inputattach --wacom_v /dev/ttyS1

exit 0
----------------------------------------------------------------
