There are autopackages available at the inkscape website. You can choose
the latest stable version or svn compilations.

My pen hasn't an eraser (it isn't a Wacom) so I can't tell.
What I could see is the same in Gimp and in Inkscape. Once you've used
the tablet, it seems to "catch" the pointer, and the mouse becomes
unuseful for the app.
But if you close the program, everything works as it should.
I'm guessing it's a GTK problem because Gimp and Inkscape share the same
menu for activating the tablet. But I really don't know if I'm right.
Somebody pointed here that is a problem fixed in the newest versions of
gtk+ and linuxwacom, but I'll have to wait those libraries to be in the
Ubuntu repos, since I'm not so comfortable experimenting with that kind
of libraries (GTK mostly, I don't want to break something if I don't
know how to fix it - at least in my computer for work :-p).
