HELP: W700 color calibration or finger print reader and tablet in Ubuntu?

2010-03-07, 8:12 AM

Does the W700 Tablet work in Ubuntu or in any flavor of Linux? Does the color calibration or finger print reader?

How does one get them working? Anyone know?

 

Is this a Wacom or something else -  USB or serial?

 

I have seen linux venders offering the W700 with a fully working tablet so there must be a way to get this going.

I also get the sense that the color calibrator is a HueyPro, is that true?

Read the following, and you'll know everything I know about the topic. Note that the W510 has the Huey color calibrator as well, so that may be another machine to look up. It's time for you to do some Googling. See:

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 2752-3AU is awarded the AppLabs Linux Compatibility mark.

AppLabs' www.Linux-Tested.com compatibility testing of this system showed the following distributions compatible with the Lenovo ThinkPad W700 2752-3AU:
 SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 SP2 x86
 RedHat Enterprise Client 5 Update 3 x86

The following table defines the system configuration tested by AppLabs.

I had seen many of these but did not find a solution. I had gotten the impression that the Raven seller had figured it out earlier so I thought I would ask here rather than search endlessly. Did not find the answer on Ubuntu forums either. 

 

This might have have the answer but one has to dig:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6546012&postcount=1

 

I got the impression the RESOLVED part on the Gentoo bug report just meant that the issue was upstream not really resolved - is that what you got out of that?

 

This is a nice list of links, thank you for taking the time to write this.

 

Did you find an answer on how to set these up? Or did I just miss it?

 

It could help to know about the ISD-V4.

I think it also matters if the tablet is considered USB or Serial.

I think it is a Wacom.

The tablet is from Wacom. I have some earlier notes containing info that may help with some of this, plus I have one or two leads to check out. Things are sort of busy at the moment, so I'll get back to you within a day or two.

Ok thanks.

Here's more links to add to the Linux list:

Okay, the tablet technology used in the W700 functions the same way as that of the Wacom Cintiq 15X/18SX tablets. Therefore, the Cintiq 15X/18SX pens are compatible with the W700.

I have a Cintiq 15X pen, which works with the W700 (for 2-side-button support under Vista 64, you have to install Pepe's patch described elsewhere in this forum). Pepe is using a Cintiq 18SX pen with his W700.

So you may want to try the Linux or Ubuntu drivers for the Cintiq 15X or Cintiq 18SX tablets.


If you go to:

http://www.wacom.com/downloads/drivers.php

and select either of the above two tablets, then select Linux, you end up at the following page:

http://www.wacom.com/productsupport/linux.cfm

which then directs you to the following two pages:

http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/
contains the most up-to-date Linux drivers and information and a mailing list that you can post questions to.

http://people.mandrakesoft.com/~flepied/projects/wacom/
contains Linux driver development history and a mailing list.


Here are some items that came up in my searches, in connection with the above sites, that may be of some use (it looks like the first guy below got the W700ds tablet to work under Ubuntu Jaunty, then it broke in the Karmic release, so you may want to contact/work-with him):

http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.wacom/4292

http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.wacom/4296

http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?p=308604&sid=d490669cc02148a2f90d4ae58e022fe1

So it looks like you're on the right track with:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom
http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6546012&postcount=1
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=967147
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom.fdi


Down aways on the following page is a guy who looks like he's using the Cintiq 18SX under Linux:

http://old.nabble.com/wacomcpl-looks-empty-broken-td22755746.html


Here's a driver for the Cintiq 15X/18SX for the Mac, FWIW:

http://mac.wareseeker.com/Utilities/wacom-cintiq-15x-driver-6.1.3-3.zip/c845b62b0


Anyway, I'm a bit out of my depth once you drag me into the above waters, so that's about all you can squeeze out of me. If you get it working, go to my site and drop me a line:

ThinkPad W700 Resources Page

and I'll see if I can post the info on that page. I'll post a notice here as well. If you can provide me with a link to whatever procedure you find that works, then all the better.

Good luck!

A quick request for testing --

I have been trying to get the Wacom tablet working under Fedora 13 and have come up with 2 patches and have submitted them to the linuxwacom project

 

Can owners of the W700 test please and report back.

 

You can find all you need here
