graphic tablet

Hi folks, can anyone point to a good graphic tablet brand which will run well on my Zorin 6/Ubuntu 12.04? WACOM and Trust seem to be the most common in the UK/Irish market. Neither product mention anything about Linux support. But I read on a number of forums that WACOM is the best brand to go for. Would you agree?

A lot of tablets seem to depend on software driven functionality which I do not know my Zorin/Ubuntu will support.

I also do not know if blue tooth pens are supported.

I am not a professional graphic artist and only delving into it. I would mainly use it with Gimp and since I experience tendinits pain, I want to use it as an ergonomic mouse. My max budget is 100 and hope to find something much cheaper.

It would be great if I could get a list of brands and models.
