Try http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/index.php/howto/xsetwacom and maybe add some of it to your autostart or profile.

yes it was easy to add the tablet to the wacom_data.py and all the stuff, but the application doesn't work fine (if I try to change the button1 setting to "Scroll wheel up" it changes this setting to button4 and it's the same for the other buttons) maybe I should edit some parameters of .xml file, furthermore I use X without xorg.conf and when I run the application it creates a new one that I have to remove manually each time. Anyway I think I have to learn to configure it manually without a GUI, could you suggest me a way to do it (i.e. where are the setting files or a tutorial,etc...)??? Again thanks for your help, without it maybe I'd have thrown it away!!!

right, mine (fun 2fg) is black (I again mistaken the serial number, mine is CTH460). Afaik the silver tablet isn't supported yet (check in file /usr/share/wacom-utility/wacom_data.py - there is 0xd1,0xd3 and 0xd4). You can try adding it - I think for now you can use the image & xml description of CTH460 (just copy it) and just add one line to file above with your model. pacman -Ql wacom-utility will tell you which files to check. It should be quite easy to add it I believe.

@giniu: first thank you very much for the help; then this is what I got:
[dede@casagrande ~]$ xidump -l
Virtual core pointer disabled
Virtual core keyboard keyboard
Virtual core XTEST pointer extension
Virtual core XTEST keyboard extension
Power Button extension
Video Bus extension
Power Button extension
AT Translated Set 2 keyboard extension
SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad extension
Wacom Bamboo Craft Finger pad extension
Wacom Bamboo Craft Finger touch extension
Wacom Bamboo Craft Pen eraser extension
Wacom Bamboo Craft Pen stylus extension

I found out on the web that both Bamboo Craft and Bamboo Fun are "pen&touch" the only difference is the size (Fun is bigger); so, because mine (in Italy) it's Bamboo Fun "small", I guess I have the Bamboo Craft and so the computer detects it the right way!! But now, why can't I configure it with wacom-utility or kcm-wacomtablet???

what does xidump -l return? Do you have all 4:

Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen eraser extension
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Pen stylus extension
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Finger pad extension
Wacom BambooFun 2FG 4x5 Finger touch extension

?

@giniu: I installed manually the wacom.ko driver module downloaded from the linuxwacom package on SourceForge and then I installed xf86-input-wacom

today I removed the wacom.ko module and disinstalled xf86-input-wacom with pacman, then I installed from AUR linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl and I can use it (tapping,zooming,scrolling work) but:
- wacom-utility says "No graphics tablets detected" so I can't configure it
- kcm-wacomtablet recognizes it as a Bamboo Craft and behaves very strange infact it doesn't allow me to save a settings profile (if I try to add a profile "foo" when I click on "ok" I get the error: Profile "foo" doesn't exist)

I have a BAMBOO FUN Pen&Touch/model:CTH-461/product ID:00d2

( linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl is xf86-input-wacom like in extra + newer kernel driver with more supported devices + more tools like xidump, wacdump good for debugging + custom .conf file )

giniu commented on 2010-11-14 16:32

well, that's same version as I have and it works for me. Do you use linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl or other version of driver?

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-14 16:01

thanks it worked! but the application doesn't detect the tablet (it's a CTH-461) even if the drivers are installed correctly (it works with GIMP)!!! What can I do?

giniu commented on 2010-11-13 18:03

just do python2 /usr/share/wacom-utility/wacom_utility.py - of course you have to use python2 version of PKGBUILD, for example one posted below by nuno
