> result:
>     The driver file will not load and, indeed, does not appear to exist
>     anywhere on the system.
> There are no files with "wacom" in the name and a ".ko" filename
> extension on the system, anywhere, after installing the input-wacom port.
> Is there some other step I'm meant to take?  I've searched all over the
