    It should give you the output as following
    Well the first part is over.

    7. Type the following command in the terminal to know the make of the Pentablet.
    grep -i name /proc/bus/input/devices
    Please note down the make of the tablet which you have to use in the next step.

    8.Create a new .fdi file by using the following command in terminal

    Press 'I' so that INSERT appears

    9. Paste the following template in the terminal

                <deviceinfo version="0.2">
                    <!-- This MUST match with the name of your tablet obtained -->
                    <!-- in Step 2 specified previously                        -->
                    <match key="info.product" contains="NAME OF YOUR TABLET">
                    <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">wizardpen</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents" type="string">true</merge>
                    <!-- Modify these configuration accordingly -->
                    <!-- See CONFIGURATION OPTIONS section for the full-set of -->
                    <!-- configurable options                                  -->
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.TopX" type="string">5619</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.TopY" type="string">6554</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.BottomX" type="string">29405</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.BottomY" type="string">29671</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.MaxX" type="string">29405</merge>
                    <merge key="input.x11_options.MaxY" type="string">29671</merge>

    Please insert the name of your tablet where i have highlighted in red. This you can do by moving the cursor in the terminal with arrow keys.
    Click Esc and type :wq and press Enter to save the file you have created.

    Reboot your machine. It should work.

    In case if it is not working(which occurs rarely), You can try by adding two more lines in the .fdi file
    For editing enter the command
    gksudo gedit  /etc/hal/fdi/policy/99-x11-wizardpen.fdi
    The two lines of code which may help you has to be added above the line which appears as '</match>'. The code is as follows
    <merge key="info.product" type="string">stylus</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.SendCoreEvents" type="string">true</merge>

    I acknowledge the help of Favux and give credit to him who helped me a lot to install the wizardpen driver.

    With regards
