       wacom - Wacom input driver

	 Option "Device"   "devpath"
	 ...
       EndSection

DESCRIPTION
       wacom is an XFree86 input driver for Wacom devices.

       The  wacom  driver  functions as a pointer input device, and may be used as the X server's
       core pointer.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       This driver supports the Wacom IV and Wacom V protocols.  Preliminary support is available
       for USB devices on some Linux platforms.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please  refer to XF86Config(5x) for general configuration details and for options that can
       be used with all input drivers.	This section only covers configuration	details  specific
       to this driver.

       Multiple  instances  of the Wacom devices can cohabit. It can be useful to define multiple
       devices with different active zones. Each device supports the following entries:

	       Option "Type" "stylus"|"eraser"|"cursor"
		   sets the type of tool the device represent. This option is mandatory.

	       Option "Device" "path"
		   sets the path to the special file  which  represents  serial  line  where  the
		   tablet  is  plugged.  You have to specify it for each subsection with the same
		   value if you want to have multiple devices with the same tablet.  This  option
		   is mandatory.

	       Option "USB" "on"
		   tells  the  driver to dialog with the tablet the USB way.  This option is only
		   available on some Linux platforms.

	       Option "DeviceName" "name"
		   sets the name of the X device.

	       Option "Suppress" "Inumber"
		   sets the position increment under which not	to  transmit  coordinates.   This
		   entry  must be specified only in the first Wacom subsection if you have multi-
		   ple devices for one tablet. If you don't specify this entry, the default value
		   is computed to

	       Option "Mode" "Relative"|"Absolute"
		   sets the mode of the device.

	       Option "Tilt" "on"
		   enables  tilt  report  if your tablet supports it (ROM version 1.4 and above).
		   If this is enabled, multiple devices at the same time will not be reported.

	       Option "HistorySize" "number"
		   sets the motion history size. By default the value is zero.

	       Option "AlwaysCore" "on"
		   enables the sharing of the core pointer. When this  feature	is  enabled,  the
		   device  will take control of the core pointer (and thus will emit core events)
		   and at the same time will be able, when asked so, to report	extended  events.
		   You	can use the last available integer feedback to control this feature. When
		   the value of the feedback is zero, the feature is  disabled.  The  feature  is
		   enabled for any other value.

	       Option "TopX" "number"
		   X coordinate of the top corner of the active zone.

	       Option "TopY" "number"
		   Y coordinate of the top corner of the active zone.

	       Option "BottomX" "Inumber"
		   X coordinate of the bottom corner of the active zone.

	       Option "BottomY" "number"
		   Y coordinate of the bottom corner of the active zone.

	       Option "KeepShape" "on"
		   When  this  option  is  enabled, the active zone  begins according to TopX and
		   TopY.  The bottom corner is adjusted to keep the  ratio  width/height  of  the
		   active  zone  the  same  as	the screen while maximizing the area described by
		   TopX, TopY, BottomX, BottomY.

	       Option "DebugLevel" number
		   sets the level of debugging info reported.

	       Option "BaudRate" "38400", "19200" or "9600" (default)
		   changes the serial link speed. This option is only available for wacom V  mod-
		   els (Intuos).

	       Option "Serial" "number"
		   sets  the  serial  number  associated with the physical device. This allows to
		   have multiple devices of the same type (i.e. multiple pens).  This  option  is
		   only available on wacom V devices (Intuos). To see which serial number belongs
		   to a device, you have to set the DebugLevel to 6 and watch the output of the X
		   server.

	       Option "Threshold" "number"
		   sets  the  pressure	threshold  used  to  generate a button 1 events of stylus
		   devices for some models of tablets (Intuos and Graphire).
