1. Wacom tablet

CheatSheet/X11 has some useful tidbits as well.

Wacom tablet

Starting with 1.6, HAL can be used to configure input devices via FDI-schema XML files. I use the below FDI file ( be placed in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/wacom.fdi) to configure my Wacom Intuos3 digitizer tablet. The basic configuration is automatically detected by HAL, but the below enables the tablet to work better with my dual-monitor workstation. The Ubuntu Wacom page and the man page for the X11 wacom driver were the most useful resources in setting it up.

The below configuration maps the tablet area to one monitor at a time. Moving to the side of the tablet maps it to another monitor.
