Wacom tablet under Fedora

Does anybody have experience with Wacom Tablets under Fedora 20? I plan to get a Wacom Intuos, but I'd like to know how well it's supported by Fedora 20.

I can test this for you, what are your requirements, besides sharing experience? What kind of applications do you intend to use?

Thanks for the quick feedback.
I am mostly interested if installation is easy. I usually see comments from "works right out of the box" to "tricky to install". (I don't need another tricky install :-)
I would use with Gimp/Inkscape and would like to use it with MuseScore (a music notation software).
If you have a wacom, would you tell me what type? How do you like working with it?

I've tested with a small (A5) Intuos tablet, installed available drivers (through package manager) as it does not work out of the box. With the supplied drivers I get a USB driver error when connecting. I've tested with a Fedora 20 install in VMware player. I've done a manual build of the driver that is available on sourceforge, without success. So "tricky to install" at least.
