Perfect. I installed and tested it (see below).

For my GIMP you don't need to close it. The mouse always works
in other apps. Only in GIMP, and in the canvas, it does not work.

For me, Inkscape worked TOO WELL (?!).
I mean, I opened the Inkscape, and everything worked without changing
the preferences: mouse, stylus and eraser. I then opened the
preferences, and everything was DISABLED! I enabled everything, and
everything still worked. I disabled everything, and everything STILL
worked... Crazy.

When changing the state of the input devices, I got errors in
the console, though:

(inkscape:6099): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_set_background: assertion 
`GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
(inkscape:6099): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_scrolled_window_add: assertion

`GDK_IS_DRAWABLE (drawable)' failed


Another strange thing is that the 3 devices picked up the same tool.
I mean, I couldn't set one tool for stylus and other for the mouse.
But I don't know if that is even possible in Inkscape.

    If someone still was trying to understand what was happening,
he will give up now! :-)

    Thanks,

        L.
