I recently uninstalled an reinstalled the packages xorg-driver-input-wacom and wacomtablet, but when I went to reinstall these packages my tablet was no longer showing up under
xsetwacom --list devices which stops me from using it. I checked around the Internet and it appears that the tablet is supposed to show up as a USB device (and when I enter
lsusb it does come up), but it isn't showing up under
/dev/input. I know there exists a dependency on
libwacom but I have not uninstalled/reinstalled that package because it will uninstall a large amount of packages on my system if I remove this dependency.
That said, if I uninstall libwacom, which will remove all the packages which have dependencies, then reinstall everything it just uninstalled with libwacom, will this help jog my system back into recognizing this Wacom tablet?
I looked at how to link events in
/dev/input but it all seemed a little too complicated for me. I could try to learn, but I thought I might break else along the way.
Also, would it be better for me to just compile my own verison of libwacom or is that equally complicated? (I've never compiled anything from source myself, let alone set up my system to utilize said packages)
Any advice would be helpful!
