KCM Wacom Tablet 1.3.7 & 2.0 Beta 1 (1.99.2)

I'm posting this on behalf of Alexander Maret-Huskinson who did most of the work in the latest release.

It's been a while since the last update, but today we released two new versions of KCM Wacom Tablet. Version 1.3.7 which is another update of the stable 1.3 release and 2.0-beta1 (1.99.2) which is the first testing version of the upcoming 2.0 release.
The 1.3.7 update does not contain any new features but adds support for some additional tablets and fixes a bug where the tablet was rotated in the wrong direction when auto-rotation was enabled.

Unfortunately the beta version does not contain any new features either, but still a lot of work has been put into this upcoming 2.0 release. We rewrote the whole backend to make it more manageable and prepared it for the long awaited libwacom support.
With the new architecture we can now easily support different subsystems which allows us not only to support libwacom but also any other configuration tool like for example the Intuos 4 Led project. Support for these projects is not yet included but will be added in one of the next releases.

Although we put much effort in testing, there are probably still some bugs left which we did not catch. We also have only a very limited number of tablets available, which is why we ask everyone to thoroughly test this beta and report any bugs we missed.

You can download the source from or (K)Ubuntu packages for 12.04 and 12.10 from these repositories:

2.0-beta1 (1.99.2):


  1. This is a nice post for the KCM Wacom Tablet and I appreciate your business. I suggest you Tablet Apps which will help you get more ideas on Tablet. And with this help you can decorate your Tablet with more Apps!

  2. If you want to buy a new tablet I strongly recommend you buy a kindle fire hd. Because, it's very cheap and the performance is very powerful when compare with any expensive tablet like iPad, Nexus. Moreover, Amazon often give some kindle fire hd deals which help you buy this tablet even cheaper.
