For years now they just work out-of-the-box, and if you want pressure-sensitivity, it's just a little more configuration (you need to add Xorg.conf back to F10 which actually causes some painful issues (kernel panic on shutdown, fun things like that) ) but it's liveable. I heard that a fix for this went into F11.

I can confirm the fix (courtesy of Peter Hutterer)work well on Fedora
Rawhide (soon to be Leonidas) using the legacy USB Graphire2 4x5.
Pressure sensitivity is out of box specific to application. Make sure
to set input device to Wacom.
