    Hi, guy:

    I've been searching a good solution for solving Intous4 pen pressure issue on RHEL6.1 64bit.
    Please help ! I'd like step by step clear commands for installing it.

    Currently, the Kernel my system is:  2.6.32-131.6.1.el6.x86_64
    X11 Driver is : X.Org X Server 1.7.7

    The good thing is I can just plug Wacom Intous 4 into the USE slot and use it. It seems everything works fine except pen pressure. Pen pressure doesn't work at all. No matter whatever I draw it just gives me hash lines.

    I hope you guys can guide me and solve this issue out.

    A very big thanks in advance.

    What's your driver version (rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-wacom)? and what is the output of xinput -test <device name>. You can get the device name from xinput -list (xinput is part of xorg-x11-apps).

    Does the third axis show the pressure there?

    Do I still need a Wacom driver to be installed on RHEL?
    RHEL6.0 supports Wacom Intuos4. However, only pen pressure seems to be not working.
    I didn't install a third Wacom driver in RHEL. Please tell me what to do and what is the concept of installing wacom driver?
    Thanks a lot.

    You need the xorg-x11-drv-wacom package installed to make use of the driver in X. After the installation, you need to restart HAL and X to get the driver to pick up the device.
