Volito 2:

just installed linuxwacom 0.84 and I have no freeze-bug and automatic "Absolute" setting.

First time I've wanted to contribute to the wiki, but I'm not quite sure of the editting guidelines, so I'll add this on the talk page. I'm using a Bamboo Fun (CTH661) and I needed the linuxwacom-bamboo-cth-ctl drivers from the AUR before the tablet worked. After that, using the tablet was easy and painless. Also, it might be worth adding that if you want to set your tablet in Relative (or Absolute is it started in relative), at least for mine, that I ran 'xinput --list' and found the ID of my tablet, and then ran 'xsetwacom --set ID Mode "Relative"' to set it in relative mode.

Devices list

It would be nice to have a list of devices (laptops, tablets) with Wacom digitizer, of course those that can run Arch. Dhead (talk) 22:07, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Multi Head Setup

The multi-head setup is quite inadequate at Wacom tablet#TwinView setup Initially, it's written the user should not install any xorg.conf settings, then reading this section he needs to add an option at an unspecified place. Furthermore, the provided link to Ubuntu Forum is not working without an registered registered Ubuntu account, It's suggested to make a new section for multi head setups and add all necessary options in there. Adding some example example xorg.conf configs would improve readability overall. Especially at this section it's necessary to describe aspect ratio problems with dual and/or triple head setups.

A user on IRC had mentioned that they think libinput steals tablets from udev, if this is true I think a note should be added to the wiki --ElectricPrism (talk) 21:58, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Other tablets

It would be good to have either a topic or an entirely different page on how to configure drawing tablets from brands other than Wacom, since these often have poor Linux support.
