Star Pen Tablet & Brush Size
I'm using a tablet with gimp and I want to be able to set the brush size for the paint brush and also for the eraser, separately. What happens now is that I'll set the paintbrush size to 10px, paint for a little while, turn the pen over to erase and the eraser will now be at 10px. So I'll adjust the eraser size to something like 50px, erase, turn over, and now the paintbrush is at 50px. Grrrrrrr... Angry I tried creating new brushes for both the paintbrush and the eraser, but there's no brush size option. This is my first time using gimp so I'm probably missing something.

Thanks.

Yeah it works the same for mouse and keyboard, and changing the radius doesn't affect the brush size. I'm using 2.8.

Downloaded 2.6 and it works fine now. I also seem to be getting much better performance in 2.6.

RE: Pen Tablet & Brush Size
Hey ratty...

I'm sorry for the late answer but I found out how to have two different sizes for the pen and the eraser! (For gimp 2.8)

Just go to the "preferences" in gimp2.8, then click on on "tool options" and deselect the brush under "paint options"! (I deselected all, means pattern, gradient,..)
So this worked for me!

I hope I could help you!
If its not already too late!
