Ah, Norman! Tried that - it doesn't work in WinXP on VirtualBox either!
(I don't know whether to laugh or cry.)
Actually, it sort of works - as I move the stylus around, I can see
links being highlighted, and I can select them by tapping. Trouble is,
I can't see a cursor, so I've no idea where the stylus is, unless a link
highlights as I'm waving the stylus over the tablet! At least I know
the hardware works.
Roll on Kosmic. (Actually, I'm going to have a go at installing the
0.8.3-4 driver on Hardy. Up to now I've only tried the 0.8.2.2 driver,
and I now know that doesn't work for the Intuos4.)
I read your conversation with Rolf on the Meetthegimp blog. Thanks for
raising it with him. I had a brief exchange with him via e-mail. What
a great bloke, eh? So generous with his time, and an excellent teacher.
