In my experience (GIMMP 2.4 thru 2.6, Windows XP, Wacom Intuos 3) sometimes 
GIMP has trouble detecting the tablet during its startup routines.  If this 
happens then you can still use the tablet to interact with interface elements 
(toolbars, menus, etc.) but when attempting to draw with it it will either 
react like a normal mouse cursor (i.e: no pressure sensitivity) or fail to do 
anything at all.

You can confirm this by going to your GIMP's Edit > Preferences, under Input 
Devices click "Configure Extended Input Devices" and if GIMP says none are 
found then this means it didn't detect the tablet at all.  In which case, first 
try rebooting GIMP (after attempting to use the tablet, of course) and see if 
that makes a difference.

Subject: [Gimp-user] Tablet

I downloaded Gimp and have a tablet plugged it, but anytime I try to make say a 
line using the tablet, nothing appears. The tablet is on and working. The only 
way now I can make a line is by using the mouse. Please help.
