Recently I've purchased Wacom Bambo Connect (Pen) CTL-470 K. I plugged it into my computer and at first glance it worked. But after some investigations I figured out two problems:
Problem 1. The tablet is not identified by the system correctly.
Problem 2. I can't map the tablet to one of my monitors.
On the settings form there is "Eraser pressure feel" control while CTL-470K lacks eraser feature:

While connecting the table to PC syslog says:
As you see wacom kernel module creates two input devices: Wacom Bamboo Connect Pen and Wacom Bamboo Connect Finger - and while the former looks acceptable, the latter is pretending that device can "touch" while it really can't.

i.e. not much info.
$xsetwacom --list devices
Wow! Like I have even 4 devices, while only Wacom Bamboo Connect Pen stylus (id: 14) looks appropriate.
Wacom Bamboo Connect Finger touch id: 8 type: TOUCH
Wacom Bamboo Connect Finger pad id: 9 type: PAD
Wacom Bamboo Connect Pen stylus id: 14 type: STYLUS
Wacom Bamboo Connect Pen eraser id: 15 type: ERASER
Any ideas how to bring discipline to this mess?
Problem with mapping to monitors
I have 3 physical displays but I can map the tablet only to the first (DVI-D-0) and third (VGA-0), but not the second (DVI-D-1). When in the settings form I select DVI-D-0 or VGA-0 corresponding item in dconf
is changed either to ['VSC', '14376', '16843009'] or ['ACR', '44416', '0'], but when I select DVI-D-1, this item's value stay unchanged, and after closing and opening "Map to single monitor" dialog UI change isn't saved too. See the screenshot:
