Setup Bamboo

I have two screens, but prefer the tablet only to work on one.

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "stylus"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "stylus"
    Option         "ScreenNo" "1"
    Option         "Twinview" "horizontal"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "eraser"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "eraser"
    Option         "ScreenNo" "1"
    Option         "Twinview" "horizontal"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "cursor"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "cursor"
    Option         "ScreenNo" "1"
    Option         "Twinview" "horizontal"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "pad"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "pad"
    Option         "ScreenNo" "1"
    Option         "Twinview" "horizontal"
EndSection

Also update the ServerLayout section:

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen         0 "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice    "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice    "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice    "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice    "pad" "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection

To activate the buttons, install wacom-tools and execute:

xsetwacom set cursor AbsWDn "Button 5"		# touchpad scroll up
xsetwacom set cursor AbsWUp "Button 4"		# touchpad scroll down
xsetwacom set cursor Button1 "Button 1"		# key 1 (<) click left
xsetwacom set cursor Button2 "CORE KEY  SHIFT"	# key 2 (FN1) SHIFT
xsetwacom set cursor Button3 "Button 3"		# key 3 (>) click right
xsetwacom set cursor Button4 "CORE KEY  CTRL"	# key 4 (FN2) CTRL

#xsetwacom set stylus mode "relative"		# vs absolute
#xsetwacom set eraser mode "relative"		# vs absolute
