Paul,

Are you using the driver code from http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/  ?
I had intended on trying this but have been too busy to get the time   
set up the correct environment or follow all the steps involved for  
the initial setup
http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/index.php/doc

If you get something you think is workable let me know and I can test  
it with one of my Wacom Intuos 2 tablets.

Note there is also a mouse as well as a pen with this tablet so the  
mouse code needs to be compiled as well.

thanks for all the good work!!
/Robert
