Connecting x220 tablet to a desktop to use it like a wacom tablet with stylus

I have a desktop that runs Windows 8.1. My x220 tablet runs Windows 7. I was thinking about getting a wacom bamboo tablet for my art in photoshop (which I make on my desktop... x220 isn't powerful enough for what I do in photoshop). Then I realized that my x220 tablet is kind of the same thing. Is there anyway I can connect my tablet to my desktop so that when I'm using photoshop, I can use the stylus on the tablet to control what I do? Many thanks in advance.

Wowza, that does look involved. I've never worked with ubuntu before. I'll talk to some buddies and see if we can do this, otherwise I might just be better off shelling out for a wacom tablet. Many thanks for your help Smiley Happy
