In a previous post, I learned how to compile driver support for my girlfriend’s Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch. This is less than satisfactory for some, so I was pointed to Martin Owens Wacom drivers in his PPA.
Run the following in the terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/wacom-plus
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms xf86-input-wacom
Don’t forget to register your tablet at the Wacom website, because you can specify Linux as your operating system. We might get even better support if a lot of people do this.
