Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: wacom-tools

In Hardy, with my Bamboo Fun 4x5 tablet plugged in at startup,
/dev/input/wacom devices are not created and the wacom module is not
loaded. If I manually execute "sudo modprobe wacom" the devices are
still not created.

In Gutsy, I had to manually build wacom-tools 0.7.9 from source and
replace the kernel module with the one built by the wacom-tools compile
process. I would assume that after the upload of wacom-tools 0.7.9 in
Hardy, this would be fixed, but it doesn't appear to be.
