I was recently trying to set up my Wacom BambooFun hard way - using xsetwacom commands.

I managed to do almost all set up, but when I try using:

xsetwacom set "Wacom BambooFun 6x8 Pad pad" "Mode" "Relative"

I get this error:

X Error of failed request:  XI_BadMode (invalid Mode parameter)
Major opcode of failed request:  131 (XInputExtension)
Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_SetDeviceMode)
Mode id in failed request: 0x17
Serial number of failed request:  15
Current serial number in output stream:  15

Setting Mode to Absolute gives no output.
