    Default Drawing tablet + Linux

    Hi,
    I've got Mandrake 9.1 and after 2 unsuccesful attempts at installing it I have decided to give it the actual effort it needs this time. I have a drawig tablet and I want to know if it will work with Mandrake. Its a Dick Smith tablet (which is just Aipteks HyperPen 6000 in DSE clothing!) which runs on Aipteks HyperPen 6000 drivers.
    Does anyone know if there is support for this type of thing in mandrake?

    Thanks.

    If you give "hyperpen 6000 linux" to google.co.nz/ all will be revealed. The first link looks to be the one.

    It's not so much the distribution; it's the applications which need to handle the device. If Xinput will handle it (not difficult, a pad is a lot like a mouse ) the Gimp will certainly be OK.

    I looked around some linux sites and in readmes but I didn't think of the most obious thing! Google should have been my first stop.
    Thanks for the help.
