The Linux Wacom Project manages the drivers, libraries, and documentation for configuring and running Wacom tablets under the Linux operating system. Our drivers are included in most major distributions and provide out-of-the box support for a wide variety of Wacom tablets and TabletPCs. The project consist of this (input-wacom) driver, the X driver and libwacom.

For Users

Please note many tablets will be supported by the existing kernel on your operating system. You will only need to install input-wacom if you have a newly released device that does not work or if you need a bugfix. In addition, new devices will have most of their features supported on kernels after 4.11 as we have enabled generic device support and devices are supported through the use of firmware HID Descriptors on these newer kernels.

Nevertheless, many users will want to know how to install input-wacom from source.


To submit a bug, create an issue on Github.
