New Surface Pro and Detecting Pen/Pressure Sensitivity
So I know there are many posts about using tablets and getting gimp to detect the tablet as an input device, but I'm guessing that my problem is new enough that it hasn't quite been posted about yet, or it's too scarce for me to find.

I have the new Surface Pro, i7, 1TB, windows 10, and the new Surface Pro Pen, model 1776. I am using Gimp version 2.8.22. I am not super familiar with Gimp, or with any paint program. I have dabbled with it before for very simple projects, but I struggled big time, so there is a good chance that I'm just being a newb, but I see that this issue comes up a lot on other platforms.

My pressure sensitivity works fine on Windows Ink. In gimp, by default, the pen draws exactly the same quality as the mouse does. no pressure sensitivity. I have played with the dynamic brush settings. I've copied a brush and tweaked the curves and checked different boxes. I got the velocity sensitivity to appear, although not in any sense that was useful for me. Anyway, playing with the dynamic brush settings has no affect on pressure sensitivity. I found the Edit > preferences and input devices menus. Neither the pen nor the tablet appear as a device. Just core pointer. There doesn't appear to be any interface for me to detect a new device, and resetting the devices has no effect. The Available Input Devices are DirectX Direct input, Mouse Wheel, Mouse Buttons, and Keyboard. I tried searching for drivers for the tablet or pen, but I didn't have any luck. Any advice is welcome. Thanks
