I have Wacom Bamboo tablet which has some buttons on the device. How can I configure a script to be run when I press one of them?

You need to install the tablet drivers first, try searching in the Wacom site for your model and then download the linux version.

After the installation, you can open the main configuration interface and set the buttons there.

The tablet is already installed, I can use the pen fully. When I click on map buttons in the Gnome built-in config panel, the screen is empty. – Bart van Heukelom Oct 15 '12 at 19:48
Well, that's strange, I've not yet installed my tablet on ubuntu, I'm using windows 7 and it seems fine. I'll try installing it on ubuntu. – Evandro Silva Oct 15 '12 at 20:09
