    Ubuntu 9.04 has wacom enabled by default, so your pen will work without any modifications. As for drivers, they can all be obtained via the update manager.

    Ubuntu lacks the "Tablet Input Panel" that is in windows, which is a unfortunate downside. Programs like Cellwriter can make up for that, along with the fact that there is new programs coming out every day.

    Just follow my guide and you should be just fine .
