Hello, I cant configure my Graphire 3 tablet even though I am using linuxwacom.sourceforge.net , and I dont want to confuse myself.

Ask me any information you need and I will try to give it to you. Thanks to anybody who helps!

Here is how I had Xorg.conf setup for the graphire.
I was using it as the only pointing device and it was
happy switching to and from the stylus.

follow the instructions on howto setup the kernel module
and then install the x.org driver

in your xorg.conf add these lines (I stuck em before the other
"InputDevice" entries)

########### Wacom stuffs ##############
Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "cursor"
Option "Device" "/dev/tablet"
Option "Type" "cursor"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "stylus"
Option "Device" "/dev/tablet"
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "wacom"
Identifier "eraser"
Option "Device" "/dev/tablet"
Option "Type" "eraser"
Option "USB" "on"
EndSection
########### end Wacom stuffs ##############

and in Section "ServerLayout"

add these
InputDevice "cursor" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"

Thanks! I got my xorg.conf file set up, but I dont understand how to set up the kernel module and install the driver
Could somebody give some instructions please?

EDIT: Even if I have my tablet plugged in, the orange light does not turn on and when I run

$/proc/bus/input/devices

I dont see the tablet.
Is that supposed to happen?
