Wacom Bamboo Fun in Fedora 15

Today I connected my wife’s Wacom Bamboo Fun CTH-461 to my desktop with Fedora 15 on the kernel. It worked like a charm – just plug&play – that’s because I already got installed X drivers for the Wacom:

If You have issues with Wacom under Fedora 15 – just try to install above drivers and reboot X.

But I really hate this multi – touch when I’d like to draw something with the pen, so I wanted to turn it off. Also I wanted the pen to work only on the first monitor – not on the both (I use dual monitors with extended desktops). We can set all those things with xwacomset command. First We have to know our Wacom devices:

Now when We have those devices’ names We can turn off the multi touch:

When done with multi touch We can set the working space of our tablet to the first display unit. Firsly we have to know current mapping settings:

Now If You want to map the pen to the left monitor, just double the third number:

Now I had all done and were ready to go with my work :)
