Wacom Graphire3 and The Gimp

Guillermo Latorre
Hello everyone!

I have just bought a new Wacom Graphire 3 tablet PC and now I am doing
it working on my Ubuntu Hoary.

The tablet is fine, works really good as a normal mouse pointer.
Now I have added the stylus, eraser and cursor input devices, and I can
see them on File-> Preferences->Input Devices, and I can change all
their parameters (mode, X, Y, Pressure, Tilt...).

I am new on using a tablet, so I don't know if I can configure it
better, and get anything else (and not only a mouse cursor).

Well, I wanted only to ask about what does Stylus, Eraser and Cursor
devices mean... and what have I to see/do to get my Graphire 3 totally
installed and well configured on my GNU/Linux.

That's all,
thank you very much for your help.

Guille

PD: If someone needs more information, please tell me... I have read
many man pages and tutorials but maybe too new on this theme...

Good luck to you.
Linux recognizes my wacom tablet as a keyboard device and will have nothing
to do with it :/

Kind regards

Hello,

I had almost the same questions some days ago,
concerning my new Intuos3.

Sadly, I got no answer at all... maybe my english is
really bad, what I'm sorry about ;)

Anyway, if you find anything interesting, please tell
me.

Pierre-Alexis.

I got my Intuos3 working perfectly, though at first it was only seen as a
mouse. The problem is, it can come from a lot of different things, and I
don't know what you already did or not.
My problem was basically not having replaced enough kernel drivers with
the linuxwacom ones.

So, some questions that could help both of you :
- what does your system messages say when you plug the tablet in?
- what kernel drivers did you replace? none, wacom.ko, more?
- do you have any other usb input device (the linuxwacom HOWTO only talk
about USB mice, but I finally understood my USB dance mat was a problem
too!)

Basically, keep in mind this has nothing to do with the GIMP as you have
not made it to this step yet.

Everything is in the linuxwacom HOWTO, but I admit it tool me several
tries until I got it to work.

You should give a look at
http://carol.gimp.org/gimp2/basics/gui/preferences/inputdevices.html

It shows you, very simply, how the three tools provided by the Wacom
tablet (cursor, stylus, and eraser), can be configured in different
ways. Thus you paint with the stylus, and by returning it you erase what
you did. You can choose what Gimp tool is attached to a Wacom tool, and
change it simply by clicking in the toolbox with the proper Wacom tool.

Several Gimp tools have options for sensibility to pressure or tilt. You
can configure this too. Painting with the brush or calligraphing with
the inkpen becomes very natural.

This not enough, however, and the page by Carol Spears describes only a
part of the possibilities. Personally, I would very much like to get
explanations about the following points:

- the meaning and use of the Axis and Keys in the configuration window:
  there are a lot of possibilities, but how to use them? In the current
  status of the user manual, this is not described at all.

- how to use, if possible, the additional features of the Intuos series:
  express keys and touch strip.

Well, in fact, your questions are exactly those I
really would like to have an answer for :

"- the meaning and use of the Axis and Keys in the
configuration window : there are a lot of
possibilities, but how to use them? In the current
status of the user manual, this is not described at
all.

- how to use, if possible, the additional features of
the Intuos series: express keys and touch strip."

So... any information is welcome ;)

Pierre-Alexis.

AFAIK, these settings are pretty much meaningless but are nevertheless
provided by the GTK+ dialog to configure the input devices.

AFAIK this is not supported by the driver or by XInput. If anyone
wants to make this work on the lower levels, we will happily add
support for it to GIMP.

I dont know if the wacom tablet has a left and right button option on the pen.  
My aiptek does.  So I was wondering if anyone knows how to get the pen fully
functional.

By the way thanks to carol for the code for the wacom tablet.  It came in
useful for the aiptek as well.

all the best.

i must say that out of all the documentation on my web site, this one
single page about the tablet displays the least of my knowledge.

i feel badly that i have access to such a tablet.  i did not draw much
before gimp and even less since.  i recently tried to loan it to akkana
who can probably use it and document it much better than me.

i need my scanner back.

thanks for the compliments about the tablet info on cgo, i think they
are misplaced as well as this tablet tho.
