My favorite backup program used to be faubackup (which is still very nice) until LuckyBackup appeared, with it's very nice GUI that makes it so easy to understand and use the features of the fast and accurate but a little complex and arcane, rsync. GREAT program! Thank you, Loukas Avgeriou. :-) - Feb 05 2013

gb89dragon: "...simply unchecking tablet support put the system back to it's default settings and functionality."

This is not clear to me. Where would one uncheck tablet support (in which file or graphical configuration utility)?

Also, I have noticed that after the Wacom Tablet Configuration utility/control panel writes to the xorg.conf file, if the Wacom tablet is subsequently unplugged from the USB port and the computer restarted, Xorg issues a startup error (about unable to find device /dev/input/wacom) and refuses to start. Does this relate to HAL? Should the xorg.conf file be edited by hand in some way?

Thanks for such a great utility. Best wishes-- - May 28 2009
This graphical configuration tool for Wacom tablets is such a relief and a welcome utility, after years of hand-editing xorg.conf and more recently HAL .fdi files. (Does this wacom utility conflict with HAL .fdi files? Should one delete any custom Wacom .fdi file from /etc/hal/fdi/policy ?) Thank you for creating this wonderful gift to the Linux (and *BSD?) community.

For those who may not know where to find this program once it is installed, it is not a standalone program in a /bin directory but instead, in Gnome, is found in System-> Preferences-> Wacom Control Panel.

I hope this Wacom control panel gets into the Ubuntu and all the other Linux distributions' official repositories.

THANK YOU! :-) - May 28 2009
