How I made my Genius G-560 tablet working in Debian Linux 4.0 .

1) Downloaded wizardpen driver

2) Unpacked to home directory.
3) In the make file Adjusted the directory for the directory where drivers lie.
4) Did as it is written in INSTALL and README.
5) with cat and hexdump utilites I have found the proper /dev/input/event device for the tablet ;-)
6) Modified the file for:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Tablet"
Driver "wizardpen"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event1" # adjust for yours device for the tablet
Option "MaxX" "11939"
Option "MaxY" "8939"
Option "MaxZ" "1023"
Option "TopZ" "32"
Option "BottomY" "8650"

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen" 0 0
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse" "CorePointer"

7) Restarted the server.
