    That would be a "no".
    Gimp, MyPaint, etc. can be used with the tablet ONLY.
    Guidelines in Gimp still don't work as long as the pen is configured as it should be.

    BUT, I think I just stumbled over something interesting:
    Say in Gimp, when stylus and eraser are set to "screen" the behavior is as described above. However, when only the stylus is set to "screen", while the eraser is "disabled", then everything works as expected: draw, select, crop with the mouse, and guidelines are working.
    What's funny, now MyPaint works with the mouse as well! O.o

    Eraser? Eraser! What?

    This is not making much sense. How 'bout Houdini?

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    I don't get it.
    After I switched Gimp's extended input devices configuration front and back:

    1)
    Pen --> "screen"
    Eraser --> "disabled
    This makes the eraser to act like the mouse, thus everything's working -- except for pressure on the erasure, of course.

    2)
    Pen --> "disabled"
    Eraser --> "screen"
    same as in 1), just with the stylus turned around.

    But now, when I set everything back to normal...
    3)
    Pen --> "screen"
    Eraser --> "screen"
    It's working, including mouse. Except guidelines, which can only be dragged with the mouse and not with the stylus.

    MyPaint seems to work only with Gimp configured according to 1) or 2) -- don't know why!

    Houdini still doesn't recognize pressure. But I'll ask in a Houdini specific forum. Just to check, whether they have pressure under linux.


    I hope this writing makes sense. The rest doesn't...

    Hi dr4ziw,

    Well I follow what you're saying, it just doesn't make much sense.

    Unless I'm missing the obvious (e.g. check the xsetwacom script for an error) it seems something in your Lucid install is scrambled. I guess I'd try reinstalling the Wacom drivers first, linuxwacom for the wacom.ko and then clone xf86-input-wacom. If that doesn't work...

    Good idea to check a Houdini forum.

    Well, the xsetwacom script executes without any errors, and from my point of view, it looks correct.

    I will now reinstall linuxwacom and xf86-input-wacom.

    Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    That didn't really fix it.
    At least not for Gimp -- MyPaint and Inkscape are working properly (at the moment).

    Meanwhile I'm back at my initial assumption: something's wrong with the Gimp.
    Right now, with everything correctly set up, using the mouse is possible again, including guidelines. The stylus works as well, except for the guidelines.
    However, when the toolbox window is very close to the left ruler, and I try to drag out a guideline using the stylus, sometimes a guideline does appear but its horizontal location is restricted to the area where the toolbox is. I can't drag the line beyond that region.

    Seriously, hasn't anybody else experienced this?!

    Unhappy Re: HOW TO Set Up the Bamboo Pen & Touch in Lucid

    hello,

    I just install my bamboo pen&touch on Maverick. Most of it work fine (keys, pen, touch, gesture), which is really nice (thanks for that).

    However, I still have a tiny but really annoying problem. When I use the pad, the cursor makes "jumps" from time to time. It goes like 10cm from where it was before without me doing anything special. Do you know what's wrong ?

    Hope you can help me. Thanks.

    JiM (sorry for my english, I'm French...)

    Hi jimss,

    Welcome to Ubuntu forums!

    You're English is fine.
    When I use the pad, the cursor makes "jumps" from time to time. It goes like 10cm from where it was before without me doing anything special.
    Is that with touch or the stylus/pen? Or both?

    Hi Favux,

    Thanks for looking at my problem. The "jumps" are only when i use the touch. The stylus is working perfectly.

    OK, basically they removed the touch filter logic. They are changing touch over to MT(multi-touch) code. Chris Bagwell just submitted a bunch of touch code that was accepted. It hasn't been committed to the git repository yet. But probably will be within a few days. Once it is you could try cloning the xf86-input-wacom git again and see if that helps any.
