Tablet won't work in GIMP 2.8
I just updated to GIMP 2.8, and my tablet -a digipro WP5540- does not work with GIMP unless it is in disabled mode under input devices. When "disabled", it works except with no pressure sensitivity. When "enabled", the tablet can be used to click on menu options and the brush will follow the tablet position at random intervals only when the cursor is not on the canvas.
Anyone know what could be wrong? Smile

RE: Tablet won't work in GIMP 2.8
i have the same tablet with the same problem here. when i set it to screen mode the right and middle click buttons stop functioning while in gimp. and when you apply pressure with the tip gimp thinks you're left, right, and middle clicking all at once.

when disabled it goes back to normal, but there's the issue of it not being pressure sensitive if it's set like that.

i'm currently seeing it i can fix it on my own, but if anyone sees this i'd appreciate their input.

[edit] okay so it looks like in the devices in 2.8 it has the pointer middle and right click buttons all as one device which when in screen or window mode sets them all to the pointer which shouldnt happen, so yeah it looks like it's a bug. ill send in a report for it and see what happens

[edit2] the 2.8 patch notes suggest trying gimp 2.6 if we have trouble with a tablet i'll try that now and post results

[edit3]yeah it looks like our only option is to downgrade to 2.6 til version 3 comes out. here's a link to a 2.6 download:
