Cinnamon: graphics tablet support needs testing
Seasons greetings!   We’ve begun re-porting graphics tablet (wacom) support back into Cinnamon.  The affected packages are cinnamon-control-center, cinnamon-settings-daemon, and cinnamon itself.

It’s a constant process of iterating over our projects, and gradually refining here, fixing there.  The issues lists guide us to a certain degree, along with a set of long term ...
