Wacom tablet driver rejection?

Description (last modified by klaus) (diff)

I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun pen tablet.

The tablet requires a driver to work as a tablet; otherwise it automatically runs as a mouse. However, the VirtualBox guests will run it as a mouse before I try and install the driver and the pointer is unresponsive to tablet actions.

When I try and install the driver to make it run as a tablet, the driver itself says there was an error, restart and, if that doesn't fix the problem, reinstall the software. I've done both multiple times but it doesn't seem to want to accept the driver and therefore the tablet will not work.

The tablet visible by the VM is a virtual one, with only generic functionality, which is supported by the various guest OSes. It's not a wacom tablet, and therefore these drivers won't install. Everything behaving as expected.

A possible workaround might be using USB passthrough, but then the tablet is available ONLY to the VM, because sharing of USB devices isn't possible.
