i am trying to install wacom driver in ubuntu 11.10. I am unable to install it as the driver is only available for gnome 2.:(
I'm sure I saw an icon for Wacom tablets in System Settings using the Gnome 3 interface.
If you have no joy, let me know and I'll try it this evening as I have a Bamboo myself.
Normally, they just work no fiddling around required, although at present mine is connected to a Kubuntu 11.10 PC, my other PC runs Ubuntu 11.10.
Okay, just checked Ubuntu 11.10, plugged in my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet Model CTE-650, just worked!
System Settings contains the settings for the tablet, no drivers required
You must be doing something wrong.
