How do I change xsetwacom and make the settings stay on startup?

October 24Hits:1

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 and finally got a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet to work.

However, I would like to change some settings (assign buttons;remove touch feature;...) and make them stay on startup. How can I do this?

Thank you very much for your patience.


Write xsetwacom commands into ~/.xinitrc

xsetwacom deliberately doesn't keep settings between X server restarts. The easiest (and safest) way to get stable settings is to just stick your list of xsetwacom commands into a shell script and add it to your startup applications.

Alternatively, you can bypass xsetwacom comletely and put your tablet settings in xorg.conf -- the "wacom" manpage lists the option lines. As always, be careful and remember that a poorly formed xorg.conf can render your system unusable.
