I'm running F25, 64-bit, with kernel 4.11.6 and KDE. I have an old Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet (CTH-661) with a USB connection.

The tablet has been working fine until the last week (4.11 kernels?). Now it seems to work when I first start the machine but slowly develops response problems and gradually (seemingly) drops out of memory all together. If I re-open the system settings, graphic tablet, make a few changes, and save the "changes", the tablet will work for a few more minutes before fading again.

dmesg shows the system knows about the tablet

systemctl list-units | grep -i manager shows gdm.service running (I was expecting to see kdm.service)

Any suggestions on getting this to work again would be appreciated.

started up this morning with the 4.11.4 kernel - the cursor moves with the stylus but there's no "action" when I tap the tablet.
