Linux kernel driver for Wacom devices
The Linux Wacom Project manages the drivers, libraries, and documentation for configuring and running Wacom tablets under the Linux operating system. The project consist of this driver (input-wacom), xf86-input-wacom and libwacom. Our drivers are included in most major Linux distributions and provide out-of-the box support for a wide variety of Wacom tablets and component devices.
Given this, you will only need this driver if you have a newer Wacom device, are running an older operating system, or need a bugfix. If one of these situations applies to you, install input-wacom from source by following the instructions in our wiki.
For developers and others needing additional information please see the wiki.
