I looked in google and tried building the module - it does not work.
A found a solution with ppa repository in an Ubuntu forum
but the order apt-add-repository does not work (ppa:gwibber-daily/ppa)
So finally I have found no solution to get the tablet work (it work under W7 m$ but not under linux ;-((

Has anybody a solution?
thanks

Sorry, I have no solution, but wouldn't this post fit better to the Hardware area of our forum?

"gwibber-daily" page sais it's gwibber daily build. Is it just newest version of gwibber?
In this case, you have gwibber in Debian sid repository.
      Code:

$ apt-cache search gwibber
Package: gwibber
...
Description: Open source social networking client for GNOME (client)
 Gwibber is a social networking client for GNOME. It supports Facebook,
 Twitter, Identi.ca, StatusNet, Buzz, Foursquare, FriendFeed, Flickr, Qaiku,
 Ping.fm and Digg.
 .
 This package includes the Gwibber desktop client.

$ apt-cache search gwibber
gwibber-service-buzz - Buzz plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-digg - Digg plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-facebook - Facebook plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-flickr - Flickr plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-foursquare - Foursquare plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-friendfeed - Friendfeed plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-identica - Identi.ca plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-pingfm - pingfm plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-qaiku - Qaiku plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-statusnet - Status.Net plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service-twitter - Twitter plugin for Gwibber
gwibber-service - Open source social networking client for GNOME (service)
gwibber-themes - Open source social networking client for GNOME (Themes)
gwibber - Open source social networking client for GNOME (client)


I don't know anything about Wacom Bamboo tablet, so I don't know if this
package is solution to your problem. but if you want to install and try,
just do:

#apt-get install gwibber

also, there is a package named wacom-tools and xserver-xorg-input-wacom
      Code:

$ apt-cache show wacom-tools
Package: wacom-tools
...
Description: utilities for Wacom tablet devices
 This package provides utilities to test and configure Wacom graphics tablets.
 You will need kernel and X.Org driver support for your tablet to use them.

$ apt-cache show xserver-xorg-input-wacom
Package: xserver-xorg-input-wacom
...
Description: X.Org X server -- Wacom input driver
 This package provides the X.Org driver for Wacom tablet devices.

But I see these two are meant to run on Wacom tablet, not to connect PC with it.

If you tell how you physically connect the Wacom tablet with your PC;
You use USB cable? or via wifi? etc., it may help to get more/better answer.

The Wacom bamboo tablet is connected with USB
I see it with lsusb:
Bus 005 Device 005: ID 056a:00d1 Wacom Co., Ltd


I tried what I found on different homepages:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1515562&

it does not make me the module wacom.ko I need.
Any ideas?

I don't know if you solved, but with new kernel (2.6.37) my tablet now works "out of the box". Wink
