Notes

The tablet does not work at all on the Asus R1E, there are simply no drivers for it. There doesn't appear to be any progress in driver development either.

Summary

With the lack a drivers for the tablet it makes using the Asus R1E quite pointless.

I do not see how ethernet works. It worked only on the second and third boot out of about 20.

If you call that “working”… I call that “working on good weather”. Windows Vista shows absolutely no problems on my device.

I had a liveCD booted with Ubuntu (Intrepid). Tablet worked by system default values without configuring anything. I just used the pen as a mouse. It might need a calibration for very best results, but worked fine. Mouse clicks are hardware-emulated und work, too.
I do remember that SuSE's YAST includes the SAX2 grafik configuration programm which offers to configure tablets.

Tablet now works

See how to set it up at:

https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1593330&group_id=69596&atid=525127

Note that this is not for non-programmers yet, though hopefully will soon
be available in the standard kernel.
