Select Gimp Input Device
I recently bought a graphics tablet, and, like you can guess from the fact I'm posting here, I've encountered a problem.

Sometimes it works perfectly, and sometimes it doesn't do pressure sensitivity.

I've narrowed it down to a single thing. This window here:

When it works, the Stylus is selected, when it doesn't work, the Core Pointer is selected.
So how can I switch the currently selected one? Clicking doesn't work, there's no button in the configure input device dialog.

Things I've tried:
- Plugging in the tablet before starting gimp
- Plugging in the tablet after starting gimp
- Rebooting (this seems to help, for the first time I open gimp after a reboot)

No matter what I do, it seems mostly random as to which is selected.

Ok, good to know.

You are quite right, it works perfectly with 2.6

RE: Select Gimp Input Device
wow we sure do get alot of people with tablets issues in gimp.

Ofnuts, perhaps if its not much a bother, could you make a thread under "Improtant Threads" section"
On both General & Beginner and/or Tutorials & Tips section titled something like "Tablet drawing troublshooting"

I think it would be helpful for a quick first go-to advice because this incompatibility in general is common.
