Is there any way to make a Wacom Intuous CTH-480 work under Easy Peasy 1.6 (Ubuntu 10.04)?

I have installed the Wacom Driver files according these instruction, replacing 3.7 with 2.6.30, as Easy Peasy 1.6 uses kernel 2.6.32-21-generic:


and I have installed

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wacom

The device is now detected as follows:

~$ xinput list

~$ lsmod | grep wacom

Still, programs such as Mypaint (I am using version 0.8.2) don't 'see' the device.

  • Can this be made to work?
  • Do I have to upgrade to a newer Ubuntu distro / Kernel (I'd rather not, as I am perfectly satisfied with my current OS)? In case it is relevant: I'm using an Aspire One notebook.
