Attention everyone! this post is outdated, if you don't want to read the whole thread go to post #541
I know there are some other wacom posts but I have been unable to find a solution after trying out multiple installation guides. I am running ubuntu (with kde and ubuntu-studio packages installed, probably won't make a differnece) 9.04 64-bit. I may try upgrading to karmic to see if I can get it to work.

says it should be hot-pluggable, but it definately is not.
I have looked at this guide:

This is the output from /var/log/messages after unloading and reloading the driver using rmmod wacom and modprobe wacom and then unplugging and replugging my tablet.
This is what I get from running cat /proc/bus/input/devices
