Wacom Bamboo Tablet not working

It's a CTH-460.
I downloaded the driver from the linuxwacom project and followed the instructions.

It doesn't work yet but lights turn on, and the pointer follow the displacement (no writing is possible).
I have tested also in Windows Machine and it works perfectly well.

My machine is an ASUS VX2S and the distro is Ubuntu 10.04.

Thx in advance,

If you've gone as far as the Wacom tablet doubles as a mouse (where you can move your pointer and left-, right-, double-click) then you're halfway there.

Now it's all up to whichever graphical editing application you're attempting to use;
There's a few guides depending on what you're trying to accomplish.

(no writing is possible).
Again, this depends on what app you're trying to write in.
