    Fixed link.

    Dumb brackets......

    Edit found a much better calibration method + possible universal screen rotation fix.
    EDIT 2: found a easy calibration command;
    In the terminal type "wacomcpl". A menu will pop up allowing you to do A TON of things.

    EDIT 3: i fixed a problem i didnt even know i had. I found a way to enable a right click if you hold down the primary button (aka with the pen, hold it down to right click)

    EDIT 4: I found a way to map screen rotation and calibration to the taskbar for easy access.

    Current Fixes in Progress
    pressure sensitivity
    tablet buttons
    Rotation and calibration fix (calibration becomes way off when the screen is rotated)
    SHIP install
    Finding appropriate Pen icons and a way to swap between them (like in windows)

    ok, formatted Ubuntu 8.10 off my computer completely,
    reinstalled it from scratch,
    followed this thread from the top to bottom (literally),
    and no wacom nor touchscreen...

    I guess i'll wait until Ubuntu natively supports wacom and touchscreen with handwriting recognition...

    On a side note, entering wacomcpl in the terminal showed me that i have no wacom devices to choose from...

    Okay. Try the link i gave you before, as it supports the tx line.

    I will be stopping my Linux project for the next few weeks as i have major items at college to deal with. Thanks for you understanding.

    Remember, if you have any suggestions please post them on the thread. I will still try to update in my Linux-absence.

    Thanks for this! I notice there's no xorg.conf file for the tx2500, so would I have to use the 2710p one instead?

    I have not found one for the tx2500 yet, but i am searching. Currently i am restarting my Linux Project and once i get enough testers i am going to build either my own distribution or a transformation kit.

    Give me a PM in a day or so if i haven't found one for you.
