Wacom Serial Pen Hid Tablet Driver
3. Close the command window and restart the computer.The WacomPen service is using the wacompen.sys file that is located in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers directory. If the file is removed or corrupted, read this article to restore its original version from Windows 10 installation media.
The driver is required for the colour display STU signature pads and also when using any of the STU signature pads on Windows 8.1.It allows the device to use USB Bulk Transfer to handle the transfer of increased image data size (compared with the mono STU tablets).On Windows 8 and 8.1 it also disables the Enhanced Power Management setting.

I'm attempting to configure my Bamboo wacom tablet control to a setting that I like. While I've mostly got the tablet conditions to the ones I like, I can't adjust the speed cursor when I move around the stylus. Any ideas how to change this?

I am using a HP tc4400 running on Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.04. My Wacom tablet is problematic and automatically shifts (and clicks!) to a corner of the screen. This is solved in my Windows OS by disabling the driver in device manager. I was wondering if it was possible in Ubuntu. I have tried xwacom to Disable device but in vain. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Now the same tablet has lasted through many PC upgrades. However as time progressed it got progressively more difficult to get working with later OS versions, and especially with the switch to 64 bit versions of windows. Also this was a RS232 serial tablet, and Wacom dropped driver support for serial tablets some time back. While It was possible for a while to get it working with serial to USB adaptors, that eventually became impossible as well as the serial tablet drivers don't appear to be available in 64 bit versions.
The plan being to work out how the RS232 interface was implemented, and see if that could be altered to allow a small embedded micro-controller like an Arduino or similar to be connected up in its place. This would then in turn provide the USB interface to the computer. The last bit of the puzzle would be to make the micro controller do a sufficiently good emulation of a USB tablet's firmware to convince the windows driver that it was talking to a proper USB tablet.
I used a multimeter to "buzz out" connections between all the pins on the serial socket on the tablet, and the pins on the chip. Then referring to the chip's data sheet work out which TTL level pins were used for which function.
A bit of luck revealed that some folks had been here before, and had already reverse engineered the Wacom tablet protocols, and implemented the necessary translations to convince a windows PC that it had a tablet plugged into it. This had been done using a Teensy 2 micro-controller This is an 8 bit Atmel ATMega AVR based development board. It has plenty of I/O for this application, and a USB port. More importantly the USB port on the ATmega32u4 micro-controller used by Teensy, is a full implementation of USB that can be made to look like any kind of USB device - unlike that on many Arduino style boards than can only function as a USB serial port. For this application we need to pretend to be a windows compatible Human Interface Device (HID) as a minimum, and preferably as a convincing Wacom tablet to keep the windows tablet driver software happy.
At this point we could do some basic tests. First I buzzed out all the wiring to make sure there were no shorts, and that all the connections that should be there were. Then I checked that Teensy powers up and is recognised on the USB, and that it is also able to power up the tablet. The tablet LED activity light was responding to pen touches as it should, Lastly I had a poke around with a logic probe to check that I could see serial data flowing into teensy when I moved the pen on the tablet.
This bit was easy, someone else had done all the hard work! Nip over to GitHub and grab a copy of "Waxbee"Not only does this include all the driver code required, it also comes with multiple configuration files for a number of old Wacom tablets including the serial models and the old Apple Desktop Bus versions. This is all packaged up with a nice Java front end GUI to allow selection of the required version and handle programming teensy.
Once this is programmed (takes about 5 seconds!), the PC will then recognise the USB device, and probably also identify it as a Human Interface Device (HID), with a USB virtual serial port. You might even be able to use the tablet as a basic mouse pointer at this stage depending on what version of windows you have and what mood its in!
Last stage is to find some Wacom software for the PC that will recognise the HID as a tablet, and enable all the extra capabilities like pressure sensitivity, and pen angle detection. I wanted it to run under Win 10 Pro x64, but found it was actually better to get the driver version designated for XP, Vista, and Win 7 (the more recent versions did not seem keen to recognize "Frankentablet"). So I downloaded wacomtablet_6.2.0w5.exe from here. That was quite content to install the necessary control panel app:
I noticed my Wacom Intuos 3 mouse was acting strange (clicks not always being registered). I tried to re-install the Wacom Drivers for the tablet to troubleshoot whether this was a hardware (mouse itself) or software (drivers) problem.
When I reinstalled the latest drivers that work with Intuos 3 tablets for Mac (Driver 6.3.15-3), the Wacom Preferences Pane kept saying there was something wrong with the driver and the computer needed to be restarted, and if the issue persisted to re-install the driver. I restarted my computer a few times and still had the issue, then I un-installed and I re-installed the driver and still had the issue.
I then tried installing the most recent drivers (Driver 6.3.37-3 for macOS 10.11 - 10.15) because I thought that might work with my newer Mac OS, and after installation the Wacom Preferences Pane kept saying there were no devices attached, even when my tablet was plugged in.
How do I get drivers for Intuos 3 that work with Mac OS 10.12? It used to work just fine, but now with no working drivers, my tablet is not mapped to my screen properly and using my mouse/pen is terrible.
Wacom's macOS drivers for Bamboo, Graphire, Intuos 1, 2 & 3 and Cintiq 1st gen tablets have bugs in them that cause them to completely fail to start on macOS 10.15 Catalina and later versions (including 11 Big Sur and 12 Monterey). This doesn't apply to the Windows driver, or to the drivers for their newer tablets. 2b1af7f3a8
