Error & workaround : Unnecessary WACOM section in xorg.conf causing : X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169

Description

Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, mythtv 0.20.1, installed using Synaptic package manager, error experienced by users who didn't have admin privileges on the box.

This is the error I get when starting the app by typing in mythtv.

X Error: BadDevice?, invalid or uninitialized input device 169

Major opcode: 147 Minor opcode: 3 Resource id: 0x0

Failed to open device X Error: BadDevice?, invalid or uninitialized input device 169

Major opcode: 147 Minor opcode: 3 Resource id: 0x0

Failed to open device

and then nothing happens.

I fixed it by eliminating all references to the WACOM tablet in my xorg.conf, and the corresponding stylus, curson & eraser in the server section.

these statements should have been sent to the ubuntu aliases instead. this is not a valid mythtv ticket.
