Issue with paintbrush "sticking" using a graphic tablet
Hi all,

I just dug out my old Wacom graphics tablet, and got it working properly in Ubuntu, however I'm having a quite annoying issue using it in GIMP. When using the paintbrush tool, I seem to have to tap the pen after a stroke to "release" it or something, before I can make another stroke. The mouse cursor tracks fine with the tablet, but the little brush marker seems to stick/disappear until I make that second tap of the pen. Any ideas as to what's going on? I tried disabling the brush marker and mouse pointer, as some forums suggested it slowed the brush down, but it made no difference with my problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Windows? Nox Deleo uses Ubuntu.
And i use Gentoo. GIMP version is 2.6.11-r5.
In other programs tablet works very good. In my file manager - Thunar - i can "pen down on icon, move pen while maintaining pressure, lift pen to drop at new position".

I have Virtual, mouse, synaptics, stylus, and Wacom bamboo 4x5 finger. Only "stylus" works as stylus. When it's off, it paints well, as mouse - without pressure dependence. When it's "screen" - it's "sticking".
