This is a updated version of my guide which was for ubuntu 8.10. Also something to note, keep a eye out on Crossover's website. Every once in a while they have a free download day, and crossover pro is a piece of software I believe is a must have for Linux. THREE HUGE THINGS I HAVE TO SAY BEFORE YOU START - Installing linux takes time! If something is taking a while, just leave it and let it work itself out. DON'T BE IMPATIENT. - This method is for WACOM ONLY. At the moment, there is no Ntrig support. - Wacom tablets are enabled by DEFAULT! This means no messing around with xorg.conf files! Install Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit AMD 64 If you haven't already, download Ubuntu 64 9.04 off of the ubuntu website (64 bit). 1. Boot from the dvd. 2. Select Install Ubuntu. 3. Follow the on-screen instructions. 4. When it gets to the partition screen, remember that the GRUB bootloader is installed by default, so it is easy to dual boot. 5. Fill in contact information. 6. Reboot when told to do so. Locations You will be working out of the terminal a lot in this tutorial. This is a linux version of the command prompt. Code: Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal Update Packages Code: System-> Administration -> Software sources As soon as it opens, click close in the bottom right hand corner. It will then ask to update the Software packages, and click yes. If you don't do this, it cant render the terminal useless (nothing to reference to). Update Software Code: Go System -> Administration -> Update Manager You will be shown what updates are available. Download all the ones you can, as the system runs smoother with them. 32 bit libraries *NOTE* This is not needed in all cases, just here for reference purposes. Download "getlibs" (LINK). To install getlibs all you have to do is double click the file, and it should run a installer. Follow the on screen instructions from there. Now in the terminal write the following. Code: getlibs -distro This will find the appropriate Libraries for your distribution. You need to download the 32 bit libraries so you can install 32 bit programs (wine/ crossover are two of them). Wacom Tools In the terminal, type Code: sudo apt-get install wacom-tools Then follow the on screen instructions. This will allow you to calibrate your tablet. Programs Now that everything is working correctly, it is time to fix some of the programs. Download either wine or crossover, so we can use windows programs (wine is free, crossover isn't). Only Crossover allows for the installation of Office 2007 (that I know of). For the record, inking features in Office 2007 do NOT work under crossover. You are forced to install it using a XP bottle, not XP Tablet Edition or Vista. There may be a patch for it in the near future though. To download wine, type the following (In the terminal). Code: sudo apt-get install wine Now for some Linux-based alternatives. Enter the terminal and type the following. Code: sudo apt-get install <name of program you want to install> Two good programs to use are xournal and cellwriter. When i successfully get ship working, i will repost here (Linux version of TIP). Screen Rotation I can confirm now that screen rotation works. It is bitter-sweet though, as it only works by going into: Code: Preferences -> Screen Resolution Calibration At the terminal type: Code: wacomcpl This will bring you up to a menu that will allow calibration and other tablet pc related items. Right Click By Holding To enable this go to: Code: System -> preferences -> Mouse -> Accessibility Tab -> Click "Trigger Secondary Click By Holding Down Primary Mouse Button" You now have a working install of Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit! Any edits that are needed are welcomed if pointed out.
