    Thanks for the info, but when I come to the final command, it says that it can’t find xf86-input-wacom (?) What do I need to do?

  2. Frisken says:

    I have the same problem as Lee.
    It says that it can’t find xf86-input-wacom.
    Does the wacom.ko have to be installed??

    xf86-input-wacom isn’t needed

    I tried it under 10.10, and have the same problem as Frisken. Could this result in a lack of touch functionality on my Bamboo CTH-460?
