It finally arrived, I had to patch by myself the linuxwacom kernel driver to add support for the device identifier of my shiny new Bamboo Fun tablet. I did some test to verify that the values in the device features table are the same as the black Bamboo ones, and everything seems to work properly. After patching the driver and rebuilding the module, I was able of configuring the device in X.org using the fine tutorial available at Gentoo Wiki. After some testing I ended up using absolute positioning mode, which I don’t know if it is optimal or not, but I feel like it makes easier to me pointing at things that way 😀
The Gimp was easy to configure, using the extended input devices dialog. I also liked how InkScape behaves, although its tablet support is somewhat weak right now (but hopely it will be improved). I miss a good free (open source) drawing program in the mood of ArtRage or Painter, could someone suggest me one?
Also, as a geeky end, you can use Kanjipad to check how well written your kanas are! んーちゃ！
