Installation

The Emulate Mouse Driver for OS/2 (ArcaOS, eComStation) is required. Obtain this product here free of charge.

Move XSMOUSE10.ZIP into a directory of your choice and unzip it. Copy XSMOUSE.SYS to your C:\OS2\BOOT directory.

The USB 2.0 Extended Control Driver for OS/2 (ArcaOS, eComStation) is required. Obtain this product here free of charge.

Move USBECD23.ZIP into a directory of your choice and unzip it. Copy USBECD.SYS to your C:\OS2\BOOT directory.

Move INTUOS01.ZIP into a directory of your choice and unzip it. Copy INTUOS.EXE to your C:\OS2\BOOT directory. Look into your CONFIG.SYS file to determine which mouse device driver has been installed on your system. You may find AMOUSE.SYS or MOUSE.SYS and you need to add the STYPE=XSMOUSE$ parameter to that device driver statement and to insert the DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\XSMOUSE.SYS device driver statement just above it. Insert also the DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\USBECD.SYS /D:056A:03##:01## /N:$INTUOS$ and RUN=C:\OS2\BOOT\INTUOS.EXE statements below these.

For my own Wacom Intuos CTL-480 I am using the following lines:

DEVICE=D:\OS2\BOOT\XSMOUSE.SYS
DEVICE=D:\OS2\BOOT\AMOUSE.SYS SMP STYPE=XSMOUSE$
DEVICE=D:\OS2\BOOT\USBECD.SYS /D:056A:03##:01## /N:$INTUOS$ /V
RUN=D:\OS2\BOOT\INTUOS.EXE /h768 /w1024 /c

After that restart your system and the fun begins.
