    Been looking around and I can't find any reference for it here, or anywhere else on the net. I understand that it is a relatively new product, but I am a bit surprised no one has brought it up yet.

    Like the subject says, is there any support for the wacom cintiq 13hd yet?

    I have been a med intuos 4 tablet for a year now, and it has had great support in linux, and has worked out of the box with every distribution that I have tried it in. I just bought the cintiq 13hd and it is working great in Windows. In linux the display works, but it doesn't recognize the stylus.

    I am running linux kernel 3.8.0-19 generic. Kubuntu 13.04. When I run 'lsusb' it shows that a wacom device is connected.

    Whats weird is that it shows up in the Gimp Input Device Management dialogue. but the text next to the device is darker or grayed-out. Like it knows it is there, but doesn't want to work with it.

    Any info is appreciated, and would love to be doing my art in Linux agian. If you need more information about my setup, let me know. Thank you!

      13HD kernel driver was submitted upstream last week. Kernel 3.8 is
      supported in input-wacom. A new input-wacom release will be posted next
      week. If you can not wait, please clone the source and follow the HowTo to
      build it.

    I got into the latest change log, and there is no mention of the model I am currently using.

    And I also installed the latest driver with now luck.

    Is there any kind of time frame for adding support for the 13HD? It seems like updates come out pretty regularly, and I know you guys are working hard. Just wondering if there is a day or month I can look forward to?

    Thank you! I feel really dumb, I am not used to the way this forum allows you to respond inline, so I missed your first comment. I thought it was really weird that my comment was just quoted, with no help. Sorry about that.

    Thank you for being patient. and for letting me know that its already in the process of being implemented.

    May I ask which kernel version will have support for the cintiq 13hd? Ubuntu pushed an official update (3.8.0-21) on 5/13/13. This update didn't add support.

    I re-installed Kubuntu 13.04, and tried using kernel 3.8.0-21 again, with no luck. I have also access the mainline kernels, and have tried the latest kernel (3.10.0-031000rc1). Which was released on the 13th as well, and it doesn't work.

    Sorry for my impatients, but am I missing something really important here? Is there something else I need to update?

    I have tried building the driver from source, based on the second link that was given above. But it seems that it doesn't like newer kernel's. Here is what happens when I run

    sudo ./configure

    ----------------------------------------
      BUILD ENVIRONMENT:
           linux kernel - yes 3.7
          kernel source - yes /lib/modules/3.8.0-21-generic/build
    
    Your wacom.ko is available under 
        /home/lachoneus/Downloads/input-wacom-0.17.0/3.7
    If you have an USB device, you can copy the driver by:
            cp 3.7/wacom.ko /lib/modules/3.8.0-21-generic/kernel/drivers/input/tablet
    If you have a serial device, please copy the driver by:
            cp 3.7/wacom_w8001.ko /lib/modules/3.8.0-21-generic/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen
    
    NOTE: The kernel drivers included in this package are only
    tested with the X Wacom driver built from xf86-input-wacom.
     If you are running an X server version older than 1.7, 
    please use the drivers provided by linuxwacom package.
    

    I figure it has something to do with my kernel version, but I am not sure. There is no "wacom.ko" file I can copy.

    On the wiki page that was provided, it says in the first paragraph...

    "Those with kernels 2.6.37 or higher should use their distro supplied kernel drivers"

    But in the downloaded source driver README file, it says...

    "This kernel driver package is to support Wacom devices on kernels 2.6.26 and later."

    At this point these two sources contradict each other, and I am stuck.

    So, if my kernel is too new, I am willing to wait for the kernel update from Ubuntu, but I would like to find out what kernel version will have support for this tablet. But if building the driver isn't a kernel issue, please help me trouble shoot this problem, configuring and making the driver from scratch. I have been beating my head against a wall for the last few days trying to get it to make.

    Thank you again for your patience, it has been frustrating having to do my work in Windows again, and I would like to get back into Linux as soon as possible.

      Something was wrong with "make dist", I think. I downloaded the source and
      found there is no code under 3.7 directory. Please download it again from
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/xf86-input-wacom/input-wacom.
      I added those files back manually a moment again.

      Thank you for your patience and support.
