Work on Linux

No driver required.

By default, on linux:

pen tip
Left click.
pen lower button
Middle click
pen upper button
Right click

Also supports pressure sensitivity.

Though, you cannot use it as a practical mouse replacement. That is, if you swipe up/down in a browser, it'll just select text instead of scroll up/down. This is expected, because pen tip down means drag. The operating system needs special interpretation to do scroll. That is, if the operating system detect input from drawing tablet, and current app is a browser, then fast drag up/down is interpreted as scroll. Mac doesn't neither. Microsoft Windows does, because it supports touch screen.
