Oh, you mean the Graphire -- yes, that's the same one I have. It's a decent 
little thing, and, indeed, what got me interested in Krita in the first 
place :-). The way the Gimp (or GTK2) handles the pen is a little lacking, 
and I wanted to do better... It doesn't have tilt, which is a pity, but it's 
a fun thing, a hit with the children, and not bad quality. And it beats 
painting or retouching with a mouse. The only real problem is that it's a 
bugger to get tablets to work even with current versions of XFree.

Shouldn't be too hard; there is already code in KDE for scanning, and hooking 
it into Krita could be a perfect little getting started project :-). I don't 
have a usable scanner (it's an old parallel port scanner, and my laptop 
doesn't have a parallel port).
