If you own an awesome looking Wacom Smartpad and long to use it on Linux, I’ve some good news.

But that is about to change.

And it’s all thanks to — what else — open source.

Finally! Bamboo Slate Support on Linux
Two Red Hat developers have launched a new open-source project called ‘Tuhi’ that brings support for Wacom Smartpad devices to Linux.


I am all for this but not sure how many users that need Wacom tablets are using Linux.
