Thank you, John. That is certainly explicit. But, I was also wondering
why the package on Synaptic xserver-xorg-input-wacom will not work. It
seems to be newer (0.10.5) and it has already been compiled and placed
in the appropiate directories. All that seems to be needed is the "sudo
modprobe wacom". Yet, even after the modprobe, it is not recognized by
gimp. The X server is 1.76. Is that greater than 1.7?
