Hey,

I can not change the orientation of my new Wacom tablet.


Code:

xinput list
⎡ Virtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Areson Corp. USB Device                    id=13   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pad                  id=14   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Finger               id=16   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                      id=3   [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                id=5   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=6   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                  id=7   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=8   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                               id=9   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard                      id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard Consumer Control     id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard System Control       id=12   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen                  id=15   [slave  keyboard (3)]

 xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pad" Rotate cw
Property 'Wacom Rotation' does not exist on device.


On the internet they say, that you have to use the "stylus" device, but as you can see, xinput list does not show such a device.

Any ideas?

Best Regards,

Frink

It depends on the model, I assume you need to change "Wacom Bamboo 16FG 4x5 Pen", but you can try other ids.
There are multiple ways of doing it, the easiest one is in your DE in tablet settings, but some DE are not supporting it through GUI,
in this case you have to use a terminal app xsetwacom. Search on the internet how to configure it, here is my example:
Code:
# rotates the tablet area so that the wire goes from the opposite side
xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo Pen Pen stylus" rotate half &&
# maps the area to my specific monitors and resolutions
xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo Pen Pen stylus" MapToOutput HEAD-0 &&
xsetwacom set "Wacom Bamboo Pen Pen stylus" Area 0 425 14720 8775

The script can be set to autoload, so that your settings are preserved during boot.
