      OK I'm replying to my own post...

      Um, surely someone must know what this error means.

      (EE) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: Top/Bottom area overlaps with another devices.

      Or where to go to find out... Please help, I'm out of business on a faster smarter OS till I get my Wacom working.

        hi there, i had the same problem.

        after finding this discussion here, i checked lshal. what i found were multiple input devices just as stylusrose said.

        luckily there is one entry that differs from the others, the stylus entry has other capabilities (input.touchpad). so i tried to tell hal that i didn't want all of them ("input") but only the one with "input.touchpad"

        it worked! no crashes until now, gimp recognizes the stylus as it should, plus the eraser as an extra input without pressure sensitivity plus the scrolling thing from my graphire 4

        this is the changed part of my .fdi file, hope it doesn't mess up (why is there no preview?)

            <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
              <match key="info.product" contains="Wacom">
                <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">wacom</merge>
                <merge key="input.x11_options.Type" type="string">stylus</merge>
              </match>
            </match>

      change this line in your tablet entries:

      option "device" "/dev/input/event5"

      to this line:

      option "device" "/dev/input/wacom"

      if that doesn't work, try removing your top/bottom locations on all your tablet devices.

      Thanks,
      I guess I got confused cause wacdump gave me output on /dev/input/event5 but I think not on /dev/input/wacom maybe because I could only run wacdump in runlevel 3 since x wouldn't start?

      That was simple huh?

      so...
      "(EE) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: Top/Bottom area overlaps with another devices"
      may mean that the tablet may have started on /dev/input/wacom while the xorg is restarting it on/*/*/event5

      thanks.--b

      No, thats not right.

      what "/dev/input/wacom" does is basically apply your xorg.conf to any device that is a wacom product.
      instead of one specific event.

      The problem is that when you make multiple entries for the same device:

      stylus/eraser/cursor/pad

      you're telling the O/S that your tablet is actually 4 devices, and thats where the overlap comes from.
      I made a post entitled: "ubuntu Hal Custom_Wacom.fdi"
      Which explains that the way the driver is set-up cause Ubuntu to not be able to recognize more than one of the four at a time. Which kinda sucks.
