I got an email from Hans Neukomm explaining that if the serial driver
doesn't work, then there's probably something else going on, as the serial
part of the driver is the easiest to set up and should require the least
amount of fiddling. I thought that was a good point, so I broke down and
bought an Intuos2 USB 6x8. The tablet works great, except for two things:
1. The mapping seems to be locked in from the very top of the tablet (where
are) to about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom, and no amount of fiddling
with the "TopX" "TopY" "BottomX" "BottomY" options seem to fix it.
2. I can't find how to map a function to a button, like a double-click. I
read where you can at least swap buttons with 'xinput set-button-map', but
when I ran 'xinput list' to get a list of my devices, nowhere in there does
it have each button assigned so I know how to switch them. I can probably
figure that out by trial and error, but is there a way to give a button a
function like a double-click?

Subject: [Linuxwacom-discuss] RE: WacomOpenTablet: Invalid argument
Here's an update... never did get this thing working, but I did try a USB
to serial converter cable (didn't work either). I was wondering if anyone
else has had any success with that. It may be that I just don't have
something set up right now that it's a "USB" device. I changed all the
stuff in XF86Config-4 to reflect a usb device but no dice.
Also, just for info, I called IBM tech support to make sure the serial
device in this port replicator was a real serial device and not just some
extra layer that could only be accessed by some kind of special windows
driver, and they said it is a standard serial port that would show up as
COM1 in windows, and should be ttyS0 in Linux.
Any suggestions on the USB to Serial conversion (or anything else)?
