I am a long time computer user in need of a solution for the gradual onset of RSI as well as improving photography manipulation via the Gimp. My current set up is Linux Ubuntu, Hardy Heron.
I had a few concerns regarding about setting up the tablet on Linux, having read many threads on the process required, but decided to take the plunge.
Setting up the tablet on Linux was not simple, but with so many useful pages to visit I eventually managed to get up and running.
Wow. Why didn't I do this years ago. I haven't touched the mouse for three days and what a difference. The pain in my forearm is now a distant memory, even after such a sort space of time.
Photo manipulation is awesome. As mentioned above, I use the Gimp, and it works like a dream. Have been busy doing some post processing, and it is so much easier. It has always been a struggle to select areas of photographs with the mouse. With the tablet it is a breeze.
I would recommend this tablet to anyone with the same problems I had.
