I have a new Wacom Intuos5 Touch Medium. Surprisingly enough, it worked out of the box when I connected it to my computer (Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit), including the pen pressure and some touch pad features. I also managed to change the input for left-handed use, using the GUI provided by Ubuntu to manage the Wacom driver.
However, when I entered the button mapping menu to configure the buttons on the tablet itself (not those on the stylus), no matter what I did, the changes I made there had no effect. Right now, one of the buttons can only be used as a right-click, another as a middle-click and the button which should change modes for the touch ring as left-click. The touch ring itself doesn't seem to do anything, except for some strange flickers in Gimp's coordinates. The other buttons do nothing.
I searched a bit and realized that xsetwacom can be used, but I'm not entirely sure HOW to use it: how do I see the names of the buttons so that I can assign them functions? How do I make the touch ring work? What exactly am I looking for in that command?
Also, is there a way to make one of the buttons responsible for turning on/off the touch pad? And is there a way to configure rotation with fingers, like Wacom shows is possible with this tablet?
Your answers will be greatly appreciated, I'm quite at a loss here!
