The activity itself merely accepts Wacom tablet input from XInput via the
standard GDK events.  With your kernel module and with X properly
configured, supporting Wacom tablets in activities requires no code at all,
and accessing pressure information is a one line addition.
However, since the OLPC builds do not have the kernel module, and do not
have X configured to support Wacom tablets, I provide a script on the
Colors! wiki page which will set your computer up.  The script downloads and
installs your wacom.ko file from d.l.o, and replaces xorg-dcon.conf with one
that has the needed devices.
