    Today I just plug the tablet into my laptop and it is recognised as a Graphire tablet and works 100%.
    I searched online for the model number and it is indeed a Graphire 1 (an ET-0405-U to be exact)
    The moral is that Linux has come a long way and actually is superior to other OSs.
    I'm glad that my link made you smile. Peace.
    I have a tablet, but it is not a Wacom so Linux only sees it as a "mouse" (move pen to left moves cursor to the left, pick up pen and move to the right side, move pen to the left moves cursor to the left).
    Friends don't let friends wear a red shirt on landing-party duty.
