if not:

if this is not the case with your linux, try building the latest kernel for your system.

THEN create a new DINA4 canvas/picture PAINT X-D

„The input-wacom driver is a set of loadable kernel modules which allows new tablets to be used with systems using kernels as old as Linux 2.6.30.

we recommend upgrading your kernel if possible and only installing this driver when absolutely necessary.
