Wacom Graphire tablet OS/2 driver

What is Wacom Graphire ?

Hardware
  • The three button Graphire Cordless Batteryless Mouse, complete with scrolling wheel.
  • The Graphire Pen, with programmable Side-Switch, built-in eraser and 512 levels of pressure sensitivity
  • The Graphire tablet with removable pen stand and transparent overlay for easy tracing
Specifications
  • Tablet Active area: 4" x 5"
  • Tablet dimensions: 8.2 in. W x 8.4 in. L x 0.4 in. H
  • Pen and Eraser Pressure Levels: 512
  • Accuracy: 0.02 in
  • Pen and Mouse Resolution: 1015 lines per inch
And now it has OS/2 drivers!
Installation

Place graphire.sys in any suitable directory, for example \OS2\BOOT
Find in your config.sys a string with MOUSE.SYS device driver
(typically DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\MOUSE.SYS)
Place string DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\GRAPHIRE.SYS before the line with MOUSE.SYS
Add TYPE=GRAPHIR$ parameter after MOUSE.SYS

So, the whole picture should look like this:
DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\GRAPHIRE.SYS
DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\MOUSE.SYS TYPE=GRAPHIR$

Graphire driver uses COM1 by default. If you have you tablet attached to a different COM port, just specify parameter SERIAL=COMn after GRAPHIRE.SYS
DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\GRAPHIRE.SYS SERIAL=COM2
DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\MOUSE.SYS TYPE=GRAPHIR$

That's all. Then you need to reboot your computer.

Usage

Just use your Graphire tablet set as usual *;)
Pen is much more useful than mouse. To get its best you can download 'Hot Scroll' program from http://www.step.polymtl.ca/~guardia/hotscroll.php
So you can assign one of the Pen side-switch buttons to scroll-mode.

Download

Wacom Graphire tablet OS/2 driver is FreeWare.
