I've been looking at switching to FreeBSD for a few weeks now. The only thing holding me back now is that I cannot find out if USB Wacom grahics tablets are supported. I don't use a regular mouse in order to reduce wrist strain. So I thought I ask here if they are supported or if anyone has found a way to get them to work? Or am I stuck with Mandriva for a while longer?

My tablet is a USB 6x8 Wacom Graphire 3 (model#CTE630 Vendor Id: 056a Product Id: 0014), if that hepls.
When I plug in my Intuos, FreeBSD detects it as a uhid device. As long as you configure X to use it, it should work fine. I'm not sure if the pressure sensitivity will work though. I do not recall how to set it up in Xorg, seeing as how I have no use for it currently, so I cannot help you there. The lack of a decent paint program in FreeBSD has negated my need for tablet support.
