ACECAD Graphics Tablet..

Model: AceCat Flair USB 5"x4" Tablet.

These may be my cheapest graphics tablet ever (£23 including post & packaging from eBay), but it sure beats using the touchpad when editing picture's & photo's.

Dapper recognizes this tablet as a normal mouse. You move the pen across the tablet & see the exact same thing happen on screen. The pen nib when tapped down onto the tablet, react's just like a left mouse button click. It works in the Gimp exactly the same way too. Unfortunatly there is no official Linux driver or software to make this work with the pressure sensitivity.

There are a couple of resource's to get it working better than the default install though.. AceCAD driver & for the newer Xorg driver.
