Re: [Gimp-user] (no subject)

Hi Suzume.

So, you're saying that this was the first time since you uninstalled
and reinstalled X11 that you started Gimp?

How did you uninstall X11 when you did? You deleted it in apps or what?
And you downloaded it from where?

Hi, please forgive my complete lack of computer knowledge. I'll try to be as
detailed as possible.

I have an Intuos3 tablet and until recently I have not had problems using it
in GIMP. I have a Macbook, running Snow Leopard with the latest software
updates. At one point I accidentally uninstalled X11 so I redownloaded it.
That was all several months ago.

Just today (4/2/2012) when I opened Gimp, X11 said it had an update to
install. I installed it and restarted the computer. When I reopened GIMP, it
didn't recognize my tablet. I immediately went to the Input Devices section
and tried to configure extended input devices. Nothing seemed unusual or
different from the first time I'd configured my tablet, but it still didn't
work. I don't understand how the different input devices are labeled, but
here are the ones that pop up when I press the "Configure Extended Input
Devices" button: Virtual core XTEST pointer, xquartz virtual pointer, pen,
cursor, and eraser. All of them were automatically set to "Disabled" when I
opened the program: I changed all of them to "window" and then to "screen",
but it still didn't recognize the tablet.

None of my other programs are having trouble recognizing the tablet. After I
started having trouble, I downloaded the most recent tablet driver and
restarted my computer. Nothing seems to be helping.

I do not have much knowledge about coding or programing or the nitty-gritty
of bug fixes, so if you can help, please speak in very simply terms. :(
Thank you so much in advance!
