Drawing tablet for GNU/Linux
I'd like to buy a drawing tablet (digitizing tablet) that I intend to use with GIMP (or whatever program you might recommend that is better) in GNU/Linux. For this I'd like some advice as to which tablet I should buy for this purpose. I.e. I want a drawing tablet that is well supported, as in good drivers and all of its features supported.
I'm tired of having to struggle for days with getting hardware to work and I'd like to buy something that "just works" for once. I've read and heard that Wacom is well supported, but could anyone recommend something more specific? Which model is best supported? Ideally I'd like something that is not incredibly expensive, I had in mind something like $200-$250.
