I have an Aiptek 6000u which is recognized by the same driver as
an Aiptek 8000u (they apparently have the same IDs, but they
probably have different resolutions).
An X Driver for Aiptek Hyperpens (serial) can be found at
http://sf.net/project/xf86digitaledge. I'm one of the developer
of this project.
Several other people who wrote me got the Tablet running with
USB mouse driver, so "only" the pressure recognition does not work.
My problem is that this does not work on my side with a 2.4.13-ac8
based kernel. If I plugin the tablet, the usb mouse driver and
the aiptek driver is loaded and hid is shown as default driver
(/proc/bus/usb/devices). The device itself is recognized and also
reacts to mouse/pen button clicks and movements but I see no reaction
on the screen (X-Server with /dev/input/mice configured and tried
both PS/2 and IMPS/2 protocols). Using a normal usb mouse this works
just fine (gpm show a similar behaviour). Any idea where I should=20
continue searching for the problem ?

Back to the topic: I don't know if the aiptek driver already sents
out the events. If yes, chances are good that with some small modifications
the X hyperpen driver can be used. I'm currently talking to a friend
of mine which has the Aiptek USB driver documentation concerning the
changes between the USB and the serial version (this is probably the
same documentation as inside the driver). This and the wacom X usb driver
is the base to modify the hyperpen driver.
BTW: Wasn't there a documentation added for the aiptek driver ?
I did not find it in my kernel sources.
