Help with tablet pressure?
Hi, I recently started using a Monoprice drawing tablet with GIMP, and here is my problem.

In GIMP 2.8, there is no pressure sensitivity. When viewing Input Devices, the tablet pen shows up, but is disabled. I tried setting it to "Screen" or "Window" but both of these simply cause the tablet to right-click instead of drawing whenever I use it on the canvas. (I also tried creating a custom brush dynamic with Pressure Size, but that didn't work either)

I tried downgrading to 2.6. When I use this version, the pressure sensitivity works fine, but the cursor has an offset that makes it impossible to use. The tablet pen is an inch or two away from the actual cursor position.

I would appreciate any help anyone can offer! Also, apologies if this is in the wrong forum--I couldn't find a place for bug questions.

Thanks!!

Thank you for the reply, I was ready to give up on this thread, haha. I doubt anyone has a solution anyways, I've tried everything.

I have actually already done everything listed in the thread and all the links before I started this new one. I have tried every single solution I could find. So far nothing has worked.
