The synaptics didn't help.

But I did notice that the
Code:
grep -iE "wacom|tablet" /usr/src/linux/.config
gave me this output
Code:
CONFIG_INPUT_TABLET=y
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_ACECAD=m
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_AIPTEK=m
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_GTCO=m
# CONFIG_TABLET_USB_HANWANG is not set
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_KBTAB=m
CONFIG_TABLET_SERIAL_WACOM4=y
# CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_WACOM_W8001 is not set
# CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_WACOM_I2C is not set
CONFIG_HID_WACOM=m
# CONFIG_FUJITSU_TABLET is not set
the point of interest is
Quote:
# CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_WACOM_W8001 is not set
# CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_WACOM_I2C is not set


How would I get this set? Is it in the kernel, and if it is, does anyone know how I would find it?
Would I use, "/" and then "CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN"?
I am going to give it a try.

Well I am beginning to suspect that this is no longer a kernel issue, but a driver issue.

I enabled all the options for
Code:
grep -iE "wacom|tablet" /usr/src/linux/.config

and have them all enabled.
Code:
CONFIG_INPUT_TABLET=y
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_ACECAD=m
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_AIPTEK=m
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_GTCO=m
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_HANWANG=m
CONFIG_TABLET_USB_KBTAB=m
CONFIG_TABLET_SERIAL_WACOM4=m
CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_WACOM_W8001=m
CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_WACOM_I2C=m
CONFIG_HID_WACOM=m
CONFIG_FUJITSU_TABLET=y


I have all the things that I need for the wacom and the touch features. However, Gentoo/KDE is failing to load the right driver so I can use my tablet.

I found several options that I thought would have fixed the issue, but to no avail. I tried to build every feature into the kernel, and I have made them all modules. Modules are the only ones that kind of sorta work. After changing and rebuilding the kernel, I reinstalled the wacom drivers:
Code:
dev-libs/libwacom kde-misc/wacomtablet x11-drivers/xf86-input-wacom
but this proved futile as well.

I am wondering if the reason they are not working is due to the layout and new options in the 4.0.5-gentoo kernel and the source files that have been build for gentoo.

I think that I am going to start another post in another category for this issue.

Thanks for all the help and tips so far. I really appreciate it.

Thank you again and again.

Cheers! :)

SUCCESS!!!

Well I had help from a friend and finally got this issue fixed. *jump up and down*

The link how to fix the broken/problematic issue was: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=125296

This file needed to be fixed
Code:
/usr/share/apps/wacomtablet/data/waltop_devicelist


and edit the 0027 device to:
Quote:
[0027]
model=PTH-650/K
layout=bl_4
name=Wacom Intuos5 touch M
padbuttons=9
wheel=no
touchring=yes
touchstripl=no
touchstripr=no


Restarted X, and Viola. It fixed the tablet no longer being detected.
