GIMP 2.10 / WACOM Issues?

hg2051
Hi everyone,
I made this account because I can't seem to get my tablet set up to use pressure
size correctly. Once I learned how to edit custom dynamics I thought things
would be fine, however I seem to have come across even more problems which I
can't find any solutions for.
On one hand, the pressure size dynamic does work, hooray! Only now my pen and
the drawing cursor are not lined up. When I go to put a line down the pencil
goes off to the right and gets closer as I go left, possibly a resolution issue
I'm led to believe, however this offset is only inside the drawing area,
everywhere else is perfectly fine. Not only that, but when this occurs the
button shortcuts I have set to the pen's two buttons seem to be ignored for what
I imagine are the default settings and will not change back.
My pen and eraser are both set to 'screen' in input settings and another forum
said to ensure 'DirectX' is active in the controllers menu.
I have tried multiple versions of GIMP and they all seem to give me the same
problem.
What can I do to make GIMP recognize the correct position of the cursor and the
shortcuts?
I can get additional details and screenshots if needed.
BIG thanks in advance for nayone who helps.

Hi,

I use a Wacom Cintiq and  from time to time the same problem has
happened to me.
I think it's not a GIMP's problem: After calibrating my Wacom everything
was fine. Hope this will work!

Sadly GIMP (and/or GTK+) isn't entirely predictable when it comes to tablet problems....


I've never had problems with Wacom tablets on my GIMP installation (aside from the occasional failure to detect the tablet at all), unfortunately I'm not quite sure I understand the description.  Nonetheless, here's a few quick things to check / rule out:


- Screen/window mode.  It should definitely be set to "Screen", so this doesn't seem to be the cause....

- Pen/mouse mode.  If, for example, you pick up the pen from point A and put it down on point B but the cursor doesn't immediately snap to the new location, then you've got the stylus set on mouse (relative movement) mode.  Check your Wacom tablet control panel to be sure it's on Pen (absolute movement) mode.

I don't know if you've gotten an answer to the issue with the pen and the cursor
not lining up, but I made this account so I can give you my solution.
What worked for me was turning off the "force proportions" button in the tablet
settings, and instead manually trying to match up the active area with the
screen. It's a bit annoying, and if you ever have to change the active area you
have to match it up again, but it works. My active area is set to 4046 x 7337,
and that is the perfect ratio for me, but your screen might be a different size
or aspect ratio.

GIMP 2.10 / WACOM Issues?

hg2051
Hey, with 2.10.8 up, I had a lot of issues. I made sure I had the latest driver
from Huion; didn't work. I tried uninstalling and re-installling 2.10.8. Nada.
I switched back to 2.8. It was abysmal, and wouldn't work for me.

I fixed my issue by going into the update mainframe on gimp, and downloading
2.10.6, It still has occasional issues with closing suddenly, but they had a
pattern, instead of randomly happening. 2.10.6 would only suddenly close if
there was too much taxing your system, and if it had been up for more than 3
hours. But, and with my h420 tablet button set to press and save, I can
anticipate this and save at the drop of a hat.

This worked for my issues with 2.10.8 when nothing else would. I hope that this
at least provides you with ideas on finding your fix!

Cheers!

Sadly, I found that the Wacom app doesn't always know that your tablet has the
latest driver. I had relied on that for many problems, including loss of
pressure sensitivity. When I went to the Wacom website, I downloaded the latest
driver for Windows 10, which fixed most of my problems. Now, I just have to
solve Gimp's not recognizing the eraser tip. It works with other apps, however,
making me think it's an incompatibility between Gimp 2.10.10 and the Wacom
driver that isn't common to other apps. My opinion is that since the function
works those "non-Gimp" apps, it's more likely to be a Gimp problem than Wacom's.

My workaround is to use the pen tip for every tool just by selecting them from
the toolbox.

Hope this helps!

I had this same mapping/tracking issue (On my windows 10 OS).  I found that Gimp
needs to be running on a monitor that has the windows scale and layout setting
set to 100% (I had it set to 125%).  You'll need to restart Gimp after the
setting is changed.  Right click on the background, select Display Settings and
look under the Scale and Layout..."Change the size of text, apps and other
items".
