I've tried many sites and none of them have worked thus far. When I plug my Wacom Bamboo Splash Pen (CTL-471), the tablet lights up and it responses to the pen, but nothing is working. No response from my computer when I move the pen over the active area. How can I get it to work?
I'm using the Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 with the version 2.6.32-46-generic kernel. When I type in lsusb, it shows up as " Bus 004 Device 006: ID 056a:00dd Wacom Co., Ltd ".
Update (Apr 30, 2013) I tried lekensteyn's way:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lekensteyn/wacom-tablet sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms
Everything worked until I entered sudo apt-get update. The terminal starts spitting out lines until it reaches an error:
... Hits and Igns ... Err http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages 404 Not Found Err http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages 404 Not Found Hit http://packages.medibuntu.org lucid Release Hit http://packages.medibuntu.org lucid/free Packages Hit http://packages.medibuntu.org lucid/non-free Packages W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/irie/wacom/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/lekensteyn/wacom-tablet/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Then I tried to go to Software Sources and add the APT line ppa:lekensteyn/wacom-tablet and nothing happened. The window for adding the APT closes and I'm left staring at the SOftware Sources window. I tried restarting and nothing changed.
I'm at a lost now.
