Setting up a Wacom Graphics Tablet Under IRIX

If you're interested in setting up a Wacom tablet under IRIX, Andreas Backhaus has written up a great tutorial detailing the process of installing and configuring the necessary drivers. This can be especially useful in today's environment where compatible pre-Intuos tablets are going for so little in the used market.

Yes ... currently there isn't a way to use Intuos tablets with an SGI for free. Wacom sells a driver kit which of course requires a license.

It's probably worthwhile just to pick up a $25 8x10 ArtZ II on eBay and use that on the IRIX box instead :)
