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
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!!
