[vox-tech] Digital Arts & Crafts Studio (USB tablet/etc. for kids);help getting it to work under Linux



I saw this kit at a store recently:

  http://www.fisher-price.com/us/products/product.asp?id=40693

And today, I got one for my wedding anniversary! :)
It looks like some kind of HID device for the tablet, and probably a
joystick for the buttons ("xpad", which I guess is for XBox controllers).

Here's my /var/log/syslog as I plug it in:

Oct 30 14:42:12 kendribuntu kernel: [ 3786.092000] usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Oct 30 14:42:12 kendribuntu kernel: [ 3786.100000] hiddev96: USB HID v1.11 Device [Fisher-Price DACS] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-2
Oct 30 14:42:12 kendribuntu NetworkManager: <debug> [1193780532.714277] nm_hal_device_added(): New device added (hal udi is '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_813_1006_DACS0000001_if0').
Oct 30 14:42:12 kendribuntu NetworkManager: <debug> [1193780532.722439] nm_hal_device_added(): New device added (hal udi is '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_813_1006_DACS0000001_usbraw').

and my dmesg:

[ 3779.380000] usb 3-2: USB disconnect, address 3
[ 3785.908000] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
[ 3786.092000] usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[ 3786.100000] hiddev96: USB HID v1.11 Device [Fisher-Price DACS] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-2

No luck reading either, except I can see things change if I watch the
binary stream coming out of /dev/usb/hiddev0, as I move the stylus over the
tablet.


Would anyone here like to help me on my way to getting this thing
recognized and working under Ubuntu Gusty (Linux 2.6.22 kernel),
so I can start adding support for it to Tux Paint?

Thanks!
