Well, I was just about ready to compile from source, which is a lot less painful than most people make it seem--but then I came across this helpful blog post and discussion.
I've been working on tweaking my Wordpress blog a lot lately. That got me thinking of just how easy this blog is to maintain (thanks Google!). Then, I thought of how I used to take notes on all sorts of stuff like the Wacom driver installation. What better place to write down those notes than right here?
Here's what I did. I'm running 10.04 (LTS edition):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/wacom-plus
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xf86-input-wacom
sudo apt-get install wacom-dkms
sudo modprobe wacom
That was easy.
