IRIX Wacom driver install step by step
Hi guys, I’m having issues getting my artpad II Wacom Tablet to work on IRIX 6.5.27.
I’ve read a few methods that should get it to work but no luck. 

So I’ve installed the Wacom tablet software 4.8.0 and after installation neither the Wacom was working yet nor could I run the WacomTablet software in the icon catalog which is giving me an error saying “Could not initialize the Driver Interface”.

My art pad II is a serial Wacom and the led is also working and the led turns from orange to green when the stylus tip touches the tablet surface so I’m assuming it’s functional.

Any further suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
T

RE: IRIX Wacom driver install step by step
Are you sure Wacom tablet software 4.8.0 is made for Art Pad 2 ?
As far as I remember, this driver is made for Intuos 1 and 2 and it's not the same for Art Pad.
I'm on Irix 6.5.26 and I've installed it on my Octane with my Intuos 1 ; it has taken me 3 minutes to make it works.

EDIT :
I found this about Art Pad on Irix : http://www.fsck.it/html/geek/tips/wacom.html

RE: IRIX Wacom driver install step by step
I actually do have a 2x serial Intuos 1 but the problem is that when I connect it to a com port and boot the led doesn’t light up at all. I tried to add them as a Wacom tablet in the serial devices manager but nothing happens. I thought maybe it’s broken so I got another intuous 1 but the led is the same. I tried it both on MyBell octane and Tezro. I must be missing something.

   

Can you see the wacom in hinv?

RE: IRIX Wacom driver install step by step
Wondering if I could have this issue.

https://gainos.org/~elf/sgi/nekonomicon/...746/1.html

Cause when I check the folder under opt, all files except the pdfs are 0mb..
See screenshot.


   

I also have to add I used "sh INSTALL_WACOM" to install the drivers.

Just a little question : is the sector adapter is plug in the serial port ? Because, even without installed driver, the led should light on in orange color.

If I recall correctly the led must be on (orange) when you connect the power supply and it turn green when the pen touches its surface, even if it's not connected to the computer. Be carefully with the polarity of the power supply as I think it must be negative center (opposite of any standard power supply).

OMG I just realized I don't have a power supply for the tablets! Thanks a lot def13 I didn't realize that these needed a power supply. Hope I can find a AC power adapter from a third party supplier that is compatible.

Something like that : Amazon Link, with the possibility to switch "+" and "-" (be careful, "-" have to be inside).
