I hope this is not starting a new thread...
Still have some trouble with posting :(

I tried to use your advices and besides that I reinstalled linuxwacom-0.6.8
and
edited a bit more XF86config . All seems to be ok but...Tablet doesn't
work yet.Would you have more hints for me?Is it possible that USB mouse
is conflicting with this tablet? (I do not like the tablet mouse so I
use pen with it only and I use usb mouse besides Wacom set)

I deeply appreciate your help!

Below the resulting XF86Config file.
