Monoprice/Mac Problems
Hello everyone. I've created an account just for this problem as I have spent the past three days googling to no avail.

I have recently bought a Macbook Air, refurbished. As in, I got it March 7, 2014. The first thing I did was install my Monoprice's drivers from their website here:

I picked the only one that said anything about Mac OSX.

Today, I've finally figured out how to download Inkscape and Gimp. I was hoping Inkscape could replace Krita as my drawing program of choice (no luck there). Gimp has always been my back up. However, when I tested my tablet out in Gimp, there is no pressure sensitivity! I went to my tablet settings to see if the pressure sensitivity was registering at all, and I was able to see that the tablet itself recognized it.

Now, I've never used a Mac before, so I could be missing something obvious. On my old laptop, a Windows 7, I had to usually go and stop the generic drivers from controlling the tablet, which allowed it to be used in Krita and Gimp. But I don't know what to do here, and I need this Macbook to work so I can create the commissions people paid for to help me get this laptop. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ira,

This is a very common issue with monoprice tablet recognition on this forums,
Here is the most recent thread that worked for another user, browser this page & see if any of these things work for you.
Brush Dynamics & Input device settings ("screen," etc.)

Also, searching the forums, I found several other topics started with similar issues, if the above topic doesn't help, try browsing these others here (yours included):
