are there planned drivers for intuos 5 too. Until now, lusb recognizes the device in archlinux 3.2.13-1-ARCH. But there is made no device.
Yes. Intuos5 patches have been submitted to the 3.4 kernel: https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=CAGzDe_b4f3Ls_wRfMJUDz8tt8m-PSefUYV2Zg0w1ansL7VMOwQ%40mail.gmail.com&forum_name=linuxwacom-devel
And to xf86-input-wacom: https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=CAGzDe_bGNAUfF4jbnQ__QybOsx_4EUB_igpSO6AZL1_8zW21TA%40mail.gmail.com&forum_name=linuxwacom-devel
I have tried with xf86-input-wacom. ABS of Archlinux. I unpacked xf86-input-wacom-0.14.0.tar.bz2, changed the files and packed again for makepkg. Pcaman did the upgrade, but that alone ist not enough.
The first patch, I have no wacom_wac.c and wacom_wac.h. In Archlinux I can wait for the 3.4 kernel, in Ubuntu Precise … but I am glad, that I can use the tablet pen in Linux in future.
I have downloaded input-wacom at git browse. There I found the files for the first point. ./autogen.sh and I get a wacom.ko to copy. I have to do at every kernel update and then the pen stift works.
Right you need a new wacom.ko that supports the Intuos5 because each new kernel has a new modules directory that has the old non-working wacom.ko.
You could set up a dkms implementation of the input-wacom-0.13.0 wacom.ko and then it would automatically add the wacom.ko that supports your Intuos5 with each kernel update.
Have you talked to Andrzej Giniewicz <email@example.com> about this? He is the maintainer of the Arch wacom-drivers 1-1 PKGBUILD: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=48555 He's used input-wacom for its wacom.ko in the past. He could probably get Intuos5 support into Arch if you asked him.
