Hi p.wolf,

What release of Ubuntu are you using? Which model Bamboo?

How did you get it working? Did you allow a kernel update through Update Manager?

Edit: Alright I found your earlier post. A Bamboo Connect (Pen) on Oneiric, correct? I think the kernel was recently updated on Oneiric. If so that would have broken your new wacom.ko. That's because the new kernel's module directory doesn't have the new wacom.ko in it. Instead it has the old non-working wacom.ko. So you recompile the wacom.ko like you did before. It'll take just a few moments now that you've done it before.
