Re: XExtension Device

Thank you for your suggestion.

I realized that configuring the Floating option in the input device 'hotplugging' hal script, and then I remove the static configuration
in xorg.conf  it works perfectly.

Which meaning has this? is it not using the same driver as before?

Dear all,

I recently installed CentOS 6 in one on my computers. CentOS 6 comes
with X.Org X Server 1.10.4 as shown in the log file.
I noticed many changes with the previous version or xorg, but my
main problem now, is the Extension Devices configuration.

I have a wacom tablet connected through port USB. The piece of
xorg.conf related is:

Section "InputDevice"
     Identifier     "WACOM_TABLET"
     Driver         "wacom"
     Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
     Option         "USB" "on"
#    Option         "SendCoreEvents" "off"
     Option         "Floating" "on"
     Option         "Type" "Stylus"
     Option         "Mode" "Absolute"

I commented out the former 'SendCoreEvents' option since I read
somewhere this option was changed for 'Floating'. But even when
I set this option, and I see is recognized in the log file, as:

[229352.620] (II) Using input driver 'wacom' for 'WACOM_TABLET'
[229352.620] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/
[229352.620] (**) Option "Floating" "on"
[229352.620] (**) WACOM_TABLET: doesn't report core events
[229352.620] (**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
[229352.642] (EE) PreInit returned 8 for "WACOM_TABLET"
[229352.642] (II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
[229352.642] (II) Unloading wacom

I noticed the line '(EE) PreInit returned 8 for "WACOM_TABLET"'
which might be the focus of the problem.

How to configure my wacom tablet as an extension device?
How to make the preInit line error disappear?
probably by fixing the driver, if PreInit returns 8 something has gone wrong
with the driver and it could not initialise the device. Option CommonDBG or
DebugLevel may provide you with more information here but it's best to file
a bug with the details about your device.
