Genesis G-Pen 450 Tablet under Fedora 9

These are the steps that worked for me…

Install development packages

yum groupinstall “Development Tools” “X Software Development”
yum install xorg-x11-server-devel

Download and compile the driver
tar -xvzpf wizardpen*tar.gz
cd wizardpen-

./configure –with-xorg-modules-dir=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/
strip src/.libs/
cp src/.libs/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input

Find the hardware name of your device

cat /proc/bus/input/devices
In the output will most likely be something like “UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U…”

Create a new file: /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/99-x11-wizardpen.fdi

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”ISO-8859-1″ ?>
<deviceinfo version=”0.2″>
<!– This MUST match with the name of your tablet –>
<match key=”info.product” contains=”NAME OBTAINED FROM STEP 2″>
<merge key=”input.x11_driver” type=”string”>wizardpen</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents” type=”string”>true</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.TopX” type=”string”>10</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.TopY” type=”string”>10</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.BottomX” type=”string”>32747</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.BottomY” type=”string”>32762</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.MaxX” type=”string”>32747</merge>
<merge key=”input.x11_options.MaxY” type=”string”>32762</merge>

Plug in the tablet, logout and in.


EDIT: For Ubuntu (10.04)
