... so I've got a Graphire3 and asked Dan and Fabio to update the X
driver to get mine to work, which they graciously did in the ubuntu19
upload, and unfortunately I still see the same behaviour; the
XFree86.0.log suggests that the driver thinks my tablet has a size of 0
by 0.  I'm not sure but I think the kernel driver also needs updating,
but at this stage of the game I'm not sure Matt and Jeff would let a
kernel driver update go through.
