I am trying to get my Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet to work on my Ubuntu 10.04 installation. Right now when I plug it in the light lights up and gets brighter when I touch the pen to the surface (as it should), but the mouse does not move. I have installed xserver-xorg-input-wacom package. In researching the problem, I found this thread:
but when I downloaded the kernel driver mentioned in that post, it told me that it was only for xorg servers previous to 1.7, and that I was running too recent a version. From what I can tell, the "proper" version for my xorg server is the version I already have installed from Ubuntu. I am not sure what to do now... should I try to compile the newest driver in the 10.* series from linuxwacom, despite the fact that it seems to be only one minor version away from the current installation I have? Is there an easier solution that I am not aware of?
Thanks for the help.
