Re: [Gimp-user] Tablet

In my experience (GIMMP 2.4 thru 2.6, Windows XP, Wacom Intuos 3) sometimes GIMP has trouble detecting the tablet during its startup routines.  If this happens then you can still use the tablet to interact with interface elements (toolbars, menus, etc.) but when attempting to draw with it it will either react like a normal mouse cursor (i.e: no pressure sensitivity) or fail to do anything at all.

You can confirm this by going to your GIMP's Edit > Preferences, under Input Devices click "Configure Extended Input Devices" and if GIMP says none are found then this means it didn't detect the tablet at all.  In which case, first try rebooting GIMP (after attempting to use the tablet, of course) and see if that makes a difference.

Subject: [Gimp-user] Tablet

I downloaded Gimp and have a tablet plugged it, but anytime I try to make say a line using the tablet, nothing appears. The tablet is on and working. The only way now I can make a line is by using the mouse. Please help.
