I don't have a Bamboo, but I have an Bronze that seems to work ok...
At least, I was able to draw a smiley face and sign my name with it in

I hadn't tried it though, until I saw this post, so I haven't had time
to really do things beyond very basic sniff testing...

but I just plugged it in and it works...

That being said, again, I don't have a Bamboo, so I don't know what
the differences are between them as far as drivers and how the stylus
actions are acquired and transmitted to the computer...

You didn't really say WHAT problems you're having, so does your system
even see your tablet?  Here's what appears in /var/log/syslog when I
plug mine in:
