I did a lot of searches on Google in how to install Intous 4 driver, but I couldn't find anything that worked until now.

I am looking for step by step installation tutorial to install the driver.

and how can i check that everything is configured correctly?

Please install the latest driver (both kernel and xorg parts) shown in this help file:

For example:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/wacom-plus
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms xserver-xorg-input-wacom

This should install the latest driver for both maverick and lucid. If this doesn't work then let me know and I will look into upstream and if needed, update this driver for you.
