Hello folks,

I'll be infinitely grateful to whoever can help me with this.  I'm trying
to get a Wacom Intuos tablet to work.  It's connected to the computer via
USB.  The system sees it.  I can use either my mouse or the tablet as a
mouse.

However, I've got no pressure or angle sense from GIMP.  I DO have an
Input Devices dialog.  It gives me four options:  SWITCH (I don't know
where it comes from, but this input device doesn't react), Wacom Tablet
(which is listed in XInput as a mouse, though I don't have a mouse for the
Intuos tablet), Pen1 and Eraser1.  Pen1 and Eraser1 have all 5 settings
(X, Y, Pressure, X tilt, Y tilt).

I can bring up the Input Status dialog, too.  It shows Switch,
WacomTablet, Pen1, Eraser1 and Core Pointer (in order from top to
bottom).  If "SWITCH" is enabled, it uses that device, which doesn't do
anything so far as I can tell.  Next, if "WacomTablet" is enabled, it uses
that.  It lets me do clicks from my pad, but there's no pressure
sensitivity.  Next, it uses Core Pointer.  It never uses the Pen (which
has a dialog on the Input Devices window) or Eraser (which does also).

I hope that's a good enough description to do some good.  Here's my other
stats
