Continuing the discussion from MyPaint 1.2.0 Released!:
I'm using MyPaint on Ubuntu with a Trust Flex tablet. I just updated both system and MyPaint (16.04 and 1.2.0). The changes look great and the pen pressure works just fine, but when using the pen I can't see the pointer until I press it to the tablet. This is a big problem, obviously... It isn't a feature, I hope?
No, it's not a feature.
Do you get the same behaviour in
gtk3-demo → Drawing Area (double click to launch) → Scribble Area? Install the
gtk-3-examples package before trying this.
Do you get the same problem in GIMP? Which version of GIMP?
