udev rules for serial wacom tablets

I have a HP 2701p tablet with an integrated isdv4 (serial) wacom device. Since some time it wasn't available anymore as /dev/ttyS0, and the reason were the missing udev rules.

I don't know with which package they should come, but it would be very helpful if those rules were included, then serial tablets would hopefully work out of the box. The rules can be found for example here:

xf86-input-wacom comes with an xorg.d config file that support serial tablets already (in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf):

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom serial class identifiers"
        MatchProduct "WACf|FUJ02e5|FUJ02e7|FUJ02e9"
        Driver "wacom"

It doesn't install udev rules of any kind, and I don't really want to go adding them if Xorg will already take care of such tablets properly.  I'm reassigning this to the linxuwacom-module devs in case they want to handle it for linxuwacom-module...

Perhaps for dev-libs/libwacom?

If that doesn't contain udev rules either, at least we should document it on the wiki then.

libwacom installs /lib/udev/rules.d/65-libwacom.rules which includes the following section:

# Match all serial wacom tablets with a serial ID starting with WACf
ENV{ID_BUS}=="tty|pnp", ATTRS{id}=="WACf*", ENV{ID_INPUT}="1", ENV{ID_INPUT_TABLET}="1"
ENV{ID_BUS}=="tty|pnp", ATTRS{id}=="FUJ*", ENV{ID_INPUT}="1", ENV{ID_INPUT_TABLET}="1"

So I think we can mark this as fixed.

The only issue is that libwacom will be pulled into the dependency tree in gnome, but not in other desktops. So perhaps x11-drivers/xf86-input-wacom should have an RDEPEND on libwacom for the udev file.

@x11, what do you think?
Comment 6 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2014-01-07 09:06:40 UTC
Dependency was added to xf86-input-wacom-0.23.0.
