I followed AiptekTablet instructions on the Ubuntu Wiki to configure 11.04 for use with my graphics tablet.

I installed the xserver-xorg-input-aiptek package and created two files with the options detailed on the Wiki page above:

$ cat /lib/udev/rules.d/69-xserver-xorg-input-aiptek.rules
ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="xorg_aiptek_end"
KERNEL!="event[0-9]*", GOTO="xorg_aiptek_end"
ATTRS{idVendor}=="08ca", ENV{x11_driver}="aiptek", SYMLINK+="input/aiptektablet"

$ cat /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-aiptek.conf
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "pen"
        MatchProduct "Aiptek|AIPTEK|aiptek"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "aiptek"
        Option "USB" "on"
        Option "Type" "stylus"
        Option "Mode" "absolute"
        Option "zMin" "0"
        Option "zMax" "511"

The 50-aiptek.conf file was originally called 10-aiptek.conf as in the Wiki, but an Aiptek tablet installation help thread on the Ubuntu Forums, suggested changing 10 to 50.

Any ideas?

Thank you.
