I switched a couple of laptops to Ubuntu recently. Quite pleasant really, it's come along leaps and bounds - you definitely don't need to be a rocket scientist to make it work these days.
Anyway, I wondered if Skritter running on Chrome on a pretty low powered laptop might meet with more success than I've had under Windows. Unfortunately I came a cropper with my Wacom Pen & Touch not working with Ubuntu out of the box.
A bit of Googling and it seemed like real hard work so I shrugged and forgot about it. Anyway, I stumbled across a much shorter guide, tinkered for a little while and did indeed get the Wacom working. Touched zero settings other than setting the usable area of he pad to be the bottom right quarter, just like I do on Windows.
It runs very nicely indeed... very nice speed. I even actually prefer the sort of scratchy hard pointed input I'm getting from the pad on Ubuntu but above all else it's actually usable on an ickle netbook where I didn't find the performance tolerable on Windows 7.
Could (likely?) be no one cares but I could put up a mini guide or something.
