MyPaint 2.0.0beta0 Fedora 33 Jam install lacking pressure sensitivity with Huion Inspiroy H640P

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007ff733506a90>

Subject states the problem.

Fedora 33 Jam


Linux - Fedora 33 Jam

KDE Plasma

Huion Inspiroy H640P

Draw with stylus. Pressure sensitivity works with Krita 4.3.0, so this isn’t a driver issue, as far as I can tell.

Hi there,

  • Just to make sure: Have you tried different brushes that make use of pressure?
  • can you run gtk3-demo --run=event_axes and see if pressure is displayed as you press down the stylus?
  • Can you show us what is displayed on the window in “Help > Debug > Test Input Devices” as you slightly move/press the stylus inside the canvas area?

Yes, I have tried what look like different brushes that use pressure. Completely new to MyPaint. gtk3-demo doesn’t exist on my system and I have no candidate to install. I have a screenshot, but the forum doesn’t seem to accept uploads…

I can however add, that the debug window says:

Pressure: (no pressure)
Tilt: (no tilt)
Barrel Rotation: (no barrel rotation)

Try running mypaint in terminal


Fedora sets GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS for KDE sessions.
It was added in Fedora 22 as workaround for problems with scrolling in Firefox.
Added in Fedora bug: 1226465 – GTK applications (sometimes?) do not scroll correctly, lacks focus?
Variable is set in /etc/xdg/plasma-workspace/env/

No change. Still the same problem.

Well, I finally got MyPaint working properly, but I had to go about it rather drastically. I erased my Fedora 33 install and replaced it with the latest Debian Buster Cinnamon (debian 10.7) with MyPaint 1.2.0+gitexport.f62444e. Now I can hopefully spend my time learning to draw and paint, rather than spending all of my time trying to get my computer sorted out. Thanks for the posts.
