The new Bamboo meets the requirements of any operating system


How true this is remains to be seen, but it looks a handy device.

Digging deeper, "any operating system" seems to mean "any recent windows or MacOS". I'm sure some enterprising hacker will come up with a Linux driver soon though.

Wacom tablet support has been around for a long time - the latest software is available at The Linux Wacom Project, but check your repositories for "wacom" first. All of the Bamboo USB versions are supported.

According to a post on their mailing list, the new Pen and Touch Bamboos aren't supported yet.

Interesting. I love my Bamboo tablet, excellent for touching up Photos with GIMP ( I recently bought a slide scanner and I am going through the mountains of negatives in my storage boxes).
I set it up using Mike Hammel's article in LXF, but then I found wacomcpl Smile

I have a cheap trust tablet. Doesn't work really. It moves the mouse around but doesn't do anything when you press down or click.

Tried several tutorials, got bored, gave up, put it back in the box. Was only 15 so no loss really.

Nope, just a standard Bamboo, I might think about a touch if there is support.

Aldi have been selling them for 40 recently, but I paid more than that .
