Hi. I have this old usb Tablet back from 1999. I had ubuntu 8.04 and it worked wonderfully. No problems at all.

But The new ubuntu, (and 8.10) don't seem to work with it after plugging it in.

The ubuntu that worked just won't install on this comp, and the one I had it working on is way to slow to make use of it in Gimp.

I'll get lsusb from that older comp and post it here.
