Well, yes, I would suppose it ~would~ need KDE and kdm to run. 

Just re-open Synaptic, find that installed package, click on properties
and installed files, then see what it installed in /usr/bin. Huh, I just
fired up synaptic and don't see this package you mention. I have both
gnome and KDE installed. But, I do find "mypaint" for Wacom tablets so I
have just dnloaded it for ducks. 

It claims "This is a pressure sensitive Wacom tablet paint program. It
comes with a large brush collection including charcoal and ink to
emulate real media, but the highly configurable brush engine allows you
to experiment with your own brushes and with not-quite-natural

I would suppose this would enable your tablet from the get-go. It's only
5 megs worth, which includes the data package for it. Have you tried
this instead?  It installs the "mypaint" binary in /usr/bin. Give it a
whirl! Ric
