I'm trying to get my JamStudio tablet working under the gimp.  The
company, KB Gear, went under (which is why I bought it -- it was cheap),
and I've been reading linux docs for the last little while.

I'm running Red Hat 9, which comes with the kbtab module.  It's loaded
automatically when I plug in my tablet (USB).  I'm also running Ximian
Desktop 2, which ships with the Gimp.  I also added an entry to my
XF86Config (js_x is the JamStudio X driver, which is a good sign):

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Stylus"
        Driver      "js_x"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mouse1"

So that's fine.  My mouse (CorePointer) is set to /dev/input/mouse0.

Anyways, under the "Input Devices" dialog, the "Stylus" device is shown,
but I can't figure out how to use it.  The only alternative is to set my
main mouse pointer as "/dev/input/mice" to get the mixed input from both
the stylus and the mouse.  But this moves the core mouse pointer, and
it's kind of buggy (acceleration destroys the absolute position of the
stylus, and the area on the stylus doesn't map properly to the area on
the screen).

Any info on how to get this working would be greatly appreciated.  I
read a few docs that indicate I should be using /dev/usb/hiddev0 or
whatnot, but none of the /dev/usb/hiddev?? devices exist (even though
raw HID support is compiled into the kernel).
