you are smart to ask…

i found this “Works under Linux with the “evdev” driver for the X.org X
Window System (wizardpen driver didn’t work for me).” on this page
but, i wouldn’t know if that FOUR year old thread would apply to your
system, or not!
at the maker/sellers site
<http://www.geniusnet.com/wSite/ct?xItem=16841&ctNode=174&mp=1> i find
“OS Support Windows7/Vista/XP, Mac OS” which is NOT a good sign!! it is
always best when buying hardware to buy things which at least mentions
Linux in the specifications and on the box…

hmmmmm…careful there! the tutorial you found could not possibly
work with your openSUSE 11.3 because 11.3 does not normally have an
xorg.conf file (which is why you couldn’t find one) and if you edited
your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.install file, i’d say the next thing you need to
do is UN-edit it, if you can–put it back to its exact original
i think your “I don’t get how it must be done” means you have not edited
you xorg.conf.install, which is GOOD!!

having looked over the documentation
i think you should open YaST > Software Management, and select the
“Patterns” tab, then (in the left pane) scroll down to the “Base
Technologies” section and left click to place a green check in the
“TabletPC” section, and then click the accept button…
after YaST is finished, see if you get any response from the tablet’s
pen or mouse…
if not, what happens if you go to (in KDE) Personal Settings -
Configure Desktop > Hardware > Input Devices, look around in there, is
your tablet recognized there?
here, in my left panel of “input devices” window i can see keyboard,
mouse, touchpad and joystick…but, i don’t have a tablet and i hope you
see ‘tablet’(or something like that) if you do, then click to highlight
it and see what you can figure out.

once you get it set up in the system (i do NOT know if any of the above
is helpful) then try it with both Inkscape and GIMP…one may work and
the other doesn’t…(don’t ask me why?)

since i’m guessing, i hope something works for you…let us know…
