I recently got a hand-me-down Wacom pad from my dad. It's an Intuos 3, with four buttons on each side, a stylus pen and a mouse. As soon as I plugged it in to my laptop, which is running Linux Mint 20 with Mate as the desktop, it basically worked. I could use the mouse to navigate across my two screens and I could use the pen to draw.
Last week I was very excited when my copy of the book Dissent Without Modification arrived.
