Some weeks ago I managed to get Gimp and Inkscape to work with my Wacom Graphire 4 in Windows. Today when I re-installed my computer they broke again. It’s really strange because I have installed the same packages now as I did then.
The problem is that there are an offset between the cursor and the drawing area. If you look at the screen shot you’ll see the problem.
I’ll try to find a solution to this once and for all and post an update here.
If you kill the tablet process and reattach the tablet you will be able to use the tablet in Gimp but without any pressure sensibility.
Update 071026: I think my problems are solved in Gimp 2.4 (as well as the latest Inkscape). Have been running it for 1 day now without my problem. I can’t get the pressure sensibility to work though but at least it’s way better than before.
Update 071215: Well it broke again… The new workaround is to disable pressure sensitivity in Gimp by adding the –no-wintab command line option to the Windows short cut (right click, edit and just add the option). I have tried to find a solution to add the –no-wintab options to have Gimp always use it but I can’t find it so if you have any idea on how to do that please tell me!
