IM on Xubuntu 17.04 Linux and my paint seems to show the device in the preference device area, but the pad does not appear to do anything.

Anyone know how I can get this model Bamboo tablet to work with MyPaint? Has anyone does this successfully?
Any assistance appreciated.

same thing with Inkscape. appears to see device but not working.

Could you check to see if the wacom libaries installed? Cause of the way secure boot works, I don’t think the kernel driver is installed by default.

 $ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wacom

#4

Okay good. Could you send over a screenshot preference device area?


#5

Here is the screen shot requested. Thanks again

I just tried the pad and it appears to be NOW working!! :slight_smile:

I will not play with it and draw. thanks for everything

UPDATE: after playing with it on MyPaint, I woul say that its working but glitchy. Like I can use the pencil and stuff but somethines when im drawing the entire workspace moves around and I cant figure out how to prevent that from happening. Other times I can draw and its not moving, bu it seems to move around as if its buggy or something. Im new to using a tablet with apps so it maybe I just have to play with it. But initial guess is maybe driver is off or something.

Looks like that tablet has “intuitive Multi-Touch system”

Turn that crap off! :wink:

First, in that device settings area try setting the “Use For” setting to “Ignore” for everything except your stylus and your mouse.

If that doesn’t help check out the xsetwacom command on the command line.

I use these in a startup script to configure my tablet to not totally drive me insane:

xsetwacom set “Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pad pad” “Touch” "off"
xsetwacom set “Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pad pad” “Gesture” "off"
xsetwacom --set “Wacom Intuos5 touch M Finger touch” Touch off

You can find your device names with this command:
xsetwacom --list

Full example:

xsetwacom --list

Wacom Intuos5 touch M Finger touch id: 13 type: TOUCH
Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pen cursor id: 18 type: CURSOR
Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pad pad id: 12 type: PAD
Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pen stylus id: 11 type: STYLUS
Wacom Intuos5 touch M Pen eraser id: 17 type: ERASER

xsetwacom --get 13 all

~Briend, this was also helpful and I was able to stop the moving! thanks! I also learned a lot about the wacom possibilities. ciao!

Xubuntu does not have support for the Wacom settings panel in settings, but there is a workaround to get it on. Link: https://github.com/Zeioth/XFCE-Wacom-Settings

Next: you have four Express keys and a touch ring on your Bamboo. On my Intuos I have the keys as well but no ring. Perhaps the ring can be set up with that wacom panel, but I expect the keys w’not. I use my right keys for redo and undo and the left ones for zoom in and out. However that ring seems to do zooming so hopefully someone here has some advice for you.

Next I made setup scripts for my Intuos, a Bamboo1 and a Graphire 4. The Bamboo is only a pen, no keys, no ring, Pick up the scripts for the Intuos and Graphire here as examples: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6pe3gaidc09pnbb/mypaint-scripts.zip?dl=0
I am Dutch and so comments are in Dutch, but if really needed I can do English translations.

This page is most helpful too to get things setup: http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Tablet_Configuration#Graphire4

Finding out the numbers for a key is not so easy. I ended up doing that by trial and error.

Finally, such a script is specific for an application. If you have it right for MyPaint it will need to be different in let us say Krita or Gimp. So i use the script to set up my Wacom and next start MyPaint. In Windows the setup panel allows for setups for different apps. But that is something way over my head. I would be fully lost in the workflow.

Hope this gets you going! MyPaint is great fun!
