Bug Description

I'm using an Intuos 3 wacom tablet.
On Raring alpha, it doesn't work at all: no cursor movement.

I tested on both KDE and XFCE desktop, no difference.

If it can help, I know I had the exact same issue on 12.04 only if using a kernel starting from 3.7 (anything above 3.6.x = tablet didn't work)

WORKAROUND: A mainline kernel with this patch:

More infos:

-Only the the Inutos 3 doesn't work at all as described above.

-With a Graphire 4 , it "works" BUT not with Qt/Krita : it makes no stroke at all when drawing.
(If you think this is a different bug, tell me I'll paste it in a separate report)

Animtim (animtim) wrote :

Ok after a clean full rebuild of krita, it actually works correctly with the graphire4 now.
(still cursor is a bit buggy if both intuos3 and graphire4 are both connected, but not too big issue..)

So the problem remains with the intuos 3 which is not working at all, it looks like it's not properly detected/configured
(see: "xserver.errors: Wacom Intuos3 9x12 stylus: Invalid type 'touch' for this device" , it may be related)

Animtim (animtim) wrote :

More infos:

-Using a 3.6.11 kernel from in Raring, intuos3 works.
-latest kernel update: still doesn't work.

-The graphire4 that works doesn't have any related file in /usr/share/libwacom
(exact model: 056a:0016 Wacom Co., Ltd Graphire 4 6x8 )

while the intuos3 that doesn't work have a corresponding file there
(exact model: 056a:00b2 Wacom Co., Ltd Intuos3 9x12 )

Any ideas what I could try to get it working with latest default kernel?

I finally found out that this is a bug related to the usb hub I'm using(D-link DUB-H7).
It must be a kernel change upstream in the way it handles power or usb hub, as I can reproduce it with another different distribution, with any kernel starting from 3.7 (while with other kernel up to 3.6 it worked fine).

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to . Please test the latest v3.8 kernel[0] (Not a kernel in the daily directory) and install both the linux-image and linux-image-extra .deb packages.

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.
Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

Good news, I found the real problem and the fix :)

I finally found out it's not the hub but the laptop usb port/controller, as I plugged directly the intuos3 tablet on it and it still didn't work (I should have tried this from the beginning, shame on me.. )

I've identified my usb controller and the driver used, and found this bug related to same hardware:

So I've tried a mainline kernel with this patch:

Now it works perfectly :D

(note that I'm using Manjaro since a few days, so I can't test anymore on Raring alpha for now, but as I could reproduce the problem exactly I guess the fix will apply here too)
