I just bought a Wacom bamboo and after some tweaking, fiddling, and a little growling I have it working on everything except Inkscape. I had a little trouble getting it to work with Gimp but Overcame that, I had to fine tune some things to get it work with Xara Extreme but that's solved too. But nothing I do helps in Inkscape. It works as a cursor but I can't draw with it. I've set the tablet in he mouse section of prefs and that didn't help either. I can't help but think it's a very simple thing. If anybody has had and overcame this problem I'd appreciate their input.
