Awesome, that totally worked! (Well almost totally; still no pressure sensitivity but I don't really need it.) For reference, the full instructions (again, for kernel version 3.5 or later --- I have 3.13 lowlatency):
1. Click [Download Zip] at https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend-kernel-drivers
to download zip file and unzip somewhere convenient.
2. Make sure you have linux-headers
package installed for your running kernel
3. In the unzipped directory run make
to compile and sudo make install
to install the driver.
4. Plug in the tablet and start scribbling.
