Kubuntu Guest: Wacom Tablet won't work

Postby ryupower » 21. Feb 2009, 06:34

Hi
I've searched through numerous pages in google and yahoo search engines numerous times on this, with no avail.
I am using Virtualbox ( propriety version ) to run kubuntu on OSX. Now, I have done all the steps in gettig the ubuntu drivers for the wacom to work, including editing xorg.conf. The drivers are also installed on OSX.

Here's the problem: on the external usb devices, the tablet is grayed out. I can't click it to mount it. I applied a filter to get it to work, still won't. So when I use KUBUNTU I can't use the tablet because of this.

some specs:
-I'm using a Wacom Intuos 3 which is USB.
-I downloaded with Kubuntu "wacom-tools" and edited xorg.conf as instructed in the documentation.
-wacom-tools 1:0.8.1.6
xserver-xorg-input-wacom 1:0.8.1.6

- linux headers 2.6.27-12
- Kubuntu 8.10

-xorg.conf:
