I don't really know anymore either -- I recently got this very nice new laptop 
that can compile KDE in half a day :-). But one thing I noticed when 
upgrading was that it didn't matter all that much -- and more importantly, 
some recent fixes meant a lot.

It should -- I know it works with USB graphire. But that's really Qt's thing; 
what I did was simply use Qt's QTabletEvent -- if Qt (and X of course, and if 
there's a kernel module -- getting it right and working can be a pain, still 
not managed to on my new laptop) supports your tablet, Krita supports it. Is 
the Saphire a tablet with tilt? If so, you might consider adding code to do 
fun things with tilt, since my tablet doesn't have tilt, and that means I 
cannot experiment.
