Linux Wacom Project HOWTO
2.1 - Before We Start
From the beginning, let's make certain that we are on the
same page. First, if you have Wacom related lines in your
XF86Config/XF86Config-4 or xorg.conf files already, you should
comment them out or remove them. In particular, this includes InputDevice
sections with a driver set to "wacom" and their corresponding InputDevice
lines in ServerLayout. When that's done, restart X.
It would be a wise idea at this time to check your XFree86 or Xorg log file for references to wacom, wcm, or tablet. If X persists in trying to interact with the tablet, things will only be problematic later. The log file is often found at /var/log/XFree86.0.log or /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
To be prepared for the coming steps, it would be nice if you know what X server and Linux kernel versions are running on your system. The X -version command reveals those information for you.
