Yes, that's what he says on the blog, too.  Well, I've 'just plugged the 
thing in' to a Dell 5150 running 8.04, a Dell 6400 laptop running 9.04, 
a custom system running 8.04, an old Phillips machine running Debian 
Lenny, and a Comapq Presario with 9.04 on it.  And none of them work. 
I've tried compiling the drivers from the Linux Wacom Project, and 
installing the kernel modules...

(Of course, the common factor is me.  Perhaps I'm doomed!)

Well, all I can say is, Rolf is dead lucky!  I think I may have a go 
with some live CDs of older versions of Ubuntu to see if I can replicate 
Rolf's success.  (He says he started with 6.10, I think.)

Thanks for checking with Rolf and feeding back.
