Wacom devices are being adopted in many Linux enterprise environments beyond the creative industry. Finance, banking, medical, and public sectors are commonly adopting Linux solutions with pen-based workflows.

How good is Wacom’s Linux support?

Is the driver coming from Wacom directly or mostly developed by community?

Can I randomly buy a modern-ish Wacom digital pad, plug it in a popular distro and expect it just works?

Worked out of the box on both arch and gente after installing the wacom package. Pretty nice.


My last 2 laptops used Wacom tablets for touchscreen. Both had good Linux support, I didn’t have to do anything, they worked out of the box.

Absolutely beautiful!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
