I also have the new Model (lsusb -> Bus 002 Device 003: ID 056a:00d6 Wacom Co., Ltd ) and could not get it to work.
Here is what I did (with some help of Favux over the mailing List):
If you have the Dr Mo PPA among your repositories, remove it - it did NOT work with my device. (Of course this will probably change very soon
Get it going from IRIE Shinsuke's PPA
sudo apt-get purge wacom-dkms xserver-xorg-input-wacom
then of course
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/wacom
After a Reboot Pen & Touch are working.
sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms xserver-xorg-input-wacom
Now to the interesting bit... Setting it all up the way i want it too.
@FAVUX: I am getting an error trying to grap your sample scripts from Post #1 - Am i clicking the button wrong?
