xorg.conf 7.10 installation wacom

Bug Description

i have two very similar tablets (futjitsu-siemens).
on the 5010 (the older one) the wacom support was available immediately from the live cd (missing is rotation of the stylus when rotating the screen).
on the 5032 (the newer one) xorg.conf file looks the same (wacom support is included) but the stylus does not work. in the past, i had to use a setterminal command.

1. thank youfor the support for wacom out of the box.
2. can you fix it such that it works on th 5032 as well
what additional data do you need?

the new 2.6.22-10 version of gutsy does on the one tablet require that the mouse device (stylus) is set to

then it works - setserial seems not to be necessary (but perhaps the wacom utilities loaded)

i attach the xorg.conf file which works

Actually, this sort of thing is what HAL is for. When HAL recognizes the laptop, it can do things like setterm and so on. I don't have nearly as many laptops as Matthew Garrett, who's recently refactored some .fdi files for this sort of thing; he may have fixed your laptop in the process.

Can you please grab a liveCD of intrepid and test there?
