I was hoping last updates will bring this (quite old) tablet back to use but so far they aren't. When tablet is plugged into USB it just blinks green led and nothing happens. If there is a way to make it work please share your experience. Thanks!


Here is the way that finally worked in my case. I've downloaded deb-files of libwacom here and libwacom-common here

To the date of this post most actual versions were:



Below is connected to above versions so make sure you download and replace with actual names.

I've installed packages with:

$ sudo dpkg -i libwacom2_0.22-1_amd64.deb libwacom-common_0.22-1_all.deb

Then I've included following repository and installed package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/wacom-plus
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms

Upon reboot my graphics tablet works as it should. Thanks Age of Asparagus for giving great hint!
