Ok, then it should probably work with Linux out of the box, I would think.
(You can test it yourself -- if you don't have Linux, just get a LiveCD
like Knoppix, and boot into Linux temporarily :) )

It does not register as a Wacom tablet -- not one that X-Window on Linux
recognizes, at least. The buttons appear as joystick inputs. If I recall,
it seemed to appear as an XBox controller...? A friend has mine now,
and has spent some occasional time trying to get it to work under Linux.
I should get it back from him. :)
