Hmm, I just tripped across this mail, and I guess I must have missed the
earlier ones, cause my raison d'etre (if I can spell this right, which is
highly doubtful) has been to get my Graphic tablet, from UC-Logic, the
WP8060-TAB08, to work, and this is a very interesteding thread.  I have
already written the Linux-Wacomm list, and you know what they came up with?
 It's their contention that there's already a USB driver for the Wacom
tablet, and if it can be found, WITH the source code, then a study of that
code would do me a great deal of good.  Well, I can't find anyu such
driver, so I was hoping that some of the wiser heads on this list might
know of such a gizmo, and be willing to point me towards it.

Or, alternatively, I am trying to hunt any kind of Xinput driver for
any piece of equipement that is abolute, and not relative.  Finding an
Xinput driver for a Wacom tablet would be pure gold, at least if source
code coujld be gotten at.

I would truly be in your debt if you could find such a thing
