I just bought a Wacom Tablet but am unable to install drivers for it. The official Wacom website does not have downloads for my Intuos tablet so I googled and found a ppa from Martin Owens who got some stuff available for Wacom. Adding the key went flawlessly but when I try to run the command sudo apt-get update the following error pops up:

Hit:18 https://apt-mo.trafficmanager.net/repos/dotnet-release xenial InRelease Fetched 306 kB in 11s (27,1 kB/s)
Reading package lists... Done W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/doctormo/wacom-plus/ubuntu xenial Release' does not have a Release file. N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details. E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/doctormo/wacom-plus/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found

The ppa I am trying to configure is https://launchpad.net/~doctormo/+archive/ubuntu/wacom-plus. What can I do?

Thanks in advance!

  • Which Wacom tablet is it? run 'lsusb' at the command line. – Aaron Skomra Dec 12 '16 at 16:38

If it didn't work, it needed some modification. I would recommend building it locally.

  • Your suggestion did not work for me: Building only for 4.13.0-36-generic Building initial module for 4.13.0-36-generic Error!
