Hi, I changed gpm.conf for one psaux mouse and a tablet on ttyS0:
append="-l \"a-zA-Z0-9_.:~/\300-\326\330-\366\370-\377\" -M -m
/dev/ttyS0 -l \"a-zA-Z0-9_.:~/\300-\326\330-\366\370-\377\""
(that should be all in one line). On console mode, the mouse worked,
but not the pen (but since I want it for X and the Gimp, it doesn't
really matter). On X neither the pen nor the mouse would work!
I added the following line to /etc/X11/XF86Config (according to
But when rebooting, xdm refused to start X and 'startx' gave me this
Config Error: /etc/X11/XF86Config:65
Invalid SubSection name
The tablet is not a Wacom (it's a Conceptronic), and I'm running XFree
184.108.40.206a-11 and gpm 1.14-3 ...
Now, what's that module xf86Wacom.so? can I use it with a non Wacom
tablet? Where do I get it and how do I install/load it?
