Wacom drivers for Linux updated
Folks from linuxwacom project released a new version of the Wacom drivers for X.org.
This is mostly a bugfix release with a number of internal changes, not visible to a regular users. There are, however, few exceptions from that.
First of all, they added Wacom Intuos4 Wireless to 50-wacom.conf so that Wacom driver was used for Intuos4 WL PTK-540WL instead of the evdev driver.
The developers also fixed support for the second touch ring on the Cintiq 24HD by extending array of wheel actions.
Finally they wrote a description of touch gestures in the Wacom manual (man wacom).
Support for Intuos5 isn't done yet, but it's on radar. If you absolutely want compiling the new driver yourself, you can download it here.
Meanwhile the GNOME configuration tool gets better and better. You can now map buttons from the touch strip and map the device to a different display.
If you have a closer look at the screenshot above, you'll also notice that it is now possible to configure additional devices such as Airbrush. Cosimo demoed some of the new features in this video from late January:
So yes, it's also possible to calibrate your Cintiq as well now, just as planned.
