    There are so many Linux based user having such problem and one of them is posted asked me same as you have focused on your problem within the question.

    The strategy is that last section- not expensive.The Wacom’s are costly but having good compatibility with the Linux operating system. What we requires are tablets which can be used for the Wacom drivers but are not Wacom’s – clones, in different manner.

    There is not as like beasts within it according to my opinion. However, there are a couple of alternatives.

    Features of the A4 Graphics Tablet in linux

    There are so many features and function are contained within the graphics tablets,and I want to focus that just use it which is compatible with your budget that you have specified,you need the cheaper device.

    First of all , the long arm surface needed to navigate the monitor screen, rather than the little wrist action we use with a mouse surprised me. The positive side of using this device is that this enable you to work with easy to be precise when using a freehand selection tool, clone tool or brushes.And also any tools that you require to be accurate are much simple to use with the stylus than with a mouse.
