Ok, I've been playing with LL most of the morning to try to become familiar with it.  I'm amazed I can get around so well in it so quickly.  Thanks for making it so user friendly.

I've not had any problems with LL so far but I'm a digital tablet user and want to set up my Wacom tablet with it.  I searched the forum here and didn't see any posts about tablets and just want to avoid any pitfalls before I attempt the installation. 

I found some directions at the Ubuntu forum (I think it was) which said everything was pretty much plug and play.  Is that the case with LL also? 

Is there anything I should be aware of before I try to hook up the tablet?  Will the drivers update automatically as they have in the past (although I'm sure there won't need to be many driver changes with LL)? 

This will be my first major change and I don't want to mess it up.  If the tablet is installed successfully, maybe I'll have the confidence to tackle the printer next!

Hello,
I use Wacom Intuos Draw, this is plug and play in Linux Lite, I used it with Gimp.
Just connected it and used it.
I have not tried any other Wacom tablets.
I use no computer in work, I am just a home user, at beginner/learning Linux stage.
Trying to join in with community and assist where it may be possible :)

Thanks for responding.  I installed the tablet (Intous Pro) with no problems except I don't seem to have pressure sensitivity.  I only tried it in Pinta though, haven't tried Gimp yet.

I was sweating this installation but it went perfectly - now to get the danged printer to work!!!
