Wacom Bamboo tablet in Linux/VirtualBox

Postposted on Fri Aug 29, 2008 5:17 pm

I think I am a prime example of the learning curve required for the inner workings of good Linux distro.

I bought a Wacom Bamboo tablet to use inside VirtualBox with the Adobe Web Design suite that I bought recently.

I know it works in the Ubuntu environment cause I was moving the cursor around with it last night.

PROBLEM: No USB devices are being recognised within the VM environment. I am trying to follow this write-up in the ubuntu forums. I get as far as the xorg.conf editing and there are no entries for the Wacom tablet.

I closed the terminal window already, but I will redo the instructions and post the display - someone may be able to point out a glaring problem that I have missed completely.

Thanks.

EDIT: Here is a copy of the terminal window after I have installed all of the necessary headers:
Code: Select all
linux-libc-dev is already the newest version.
libc6-dev is already the newest version.
libncurses5-dev is already the newest version.
xserver-xorg-dev is already the newest version.
tk8.4-dev is already the newest version.
tcl8.4-dev is already the newest version.
tcl8.4-dev set to manually installed.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Libraries have been installed in:
   /usr/local/lib/TkXInput

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

Just add those entries to the xorg.conf file, Ubuntu used to contain those entries all the time, they may have removed it from 8.04.

What is the host OS? And are you using VirtualBox OSE or the full version?

Edit: I think I'm confused. Are you running Windows in VirtualBox in Linux, or the other way around?

I am running a Windows XP OS in VirtualBox in Linux.

I will copy what notfred suggests and see if that works. Hopefully I know the proper place to put it.

Re: Wacom Bamboo tablet in Linux/VirtualBox

Postposted on Fri Aug 29, 2008 11:40 pm

I don't think your xorg.conf is the issue; xorg.conf controls how the tablet is accessed by native Linux apps, not by any guests running in VirtualBox. Unless the Bamboo looks and behaves like a generic USB mouse from an interface standpoint, I don't think VirtualBox's mouse emulation (which passes through Xorg mouse pointer events) is going to be sufficient. You probably need to pass the raw USB port through to the guest OS (and install the appropriate Windows drivers).

Getting USB pass-through to work properly with a Ubuntu host OS is a bit of a mess; I had to deal with this myself recently. IIRC here's what I had to do:

1. Make sure you're running the full version of VirtualBox, not the OSE (Open Source Edition). The OSE version doesn't support USB pass-through. This means you need to download and install the full version from here, instead of installing the version in Ubuntu's repository. The full version is still free for personal use (you just can't get the source code).

2. Follow the instructions in section 11.5.7 ("USB not working") of the VirtualBox User Manual. (PDF available here if you don't have it already.)

3. Follow the instructions for "USB on Ubuntu" in the VirtualBox FAQ.

4. Make sure you heed the warning note near the top of this page unless you want to clutter up your home directory with megabytes of useless log files.

Hope that helps!

This is my /etc/fstab file:
Code: Select all
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# /dev/sda1
UUID=f2126741-d472-4109-aa6d-acb063813dc7 /               ext3    relatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /dev/sda5
UUID=8c28b56b-3b3e-4a1b-91f3-b03894568ef7 none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0


This is the section in the manual that I am supposed to have in there:
Code: Select all
# 85 is the USB group
none     /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=85,devmode=664 0 0


This is where I ask the obligatory quetsion: "Where did I go wrong?"

I am tempted to just put the two lines of code in my fstab file and see what happens.

I am pretty certain that my version of VirtualBox is the actual full version.

In VirtualBox, what version does it show if you go to Help -> About? And what shows up on the Devices -> USB Devices menu?

Make sure you substitute the appropriate group ID for the "85" in that fstab line. (It needs to be the ID of a group that your login is a member of.)

Version 1.6.0

The devices lists have my Logitech kyeboard/mouse and the Wacom tablet, but they are greyed out. The tablet settings within the virtualbox does not detect a tablet.

Do I just add the lines to the fstab file at the end?

I added the lines to the fstab file, but instead of putting in a group i.d., I changed the value to 0666 and it now works perfectly.

Thank You all very much!!!
