Yes, there are some bugs around, and some significant ones when it comes to 
hotplugging, etc. that need a more unified approach to fix for Windows and OS X 
too.

I've been working on such from the Inkscape, Linux and OS X sides of things, 
and it would be good to coordinate a bit on the fixing.

++OK;

 then I'd suggest that you mentor in a future GSoC and let the mentor org
 share of the stipend rest in the GIMP funds ;)

Sounds like a plan [although the mentor share of the funds don't go 
anywhere else. :-)]

[Gimp-developer] Graphic Tablet Sponsoring

2010-11-24 Thread Michael Natterer
Hi all,

in order to get gimp properly running with a tablet again,
and in order to make sure GTK3 does what it should together
with GIMP, I need a graphics tablet.

Since the GIMP account is full of money, and I don't use
it for anything else that hacking GIMP, I'd like to get
it sponsored.

There is no GIMP commitee deciding such things, so please
object here, or give an OK if you feel entitled to :-)

It's a Wacom Intuos4 in size A5, around 300€, since that
supports all the stuff we want to support and is not
a piece of garbage.

ciao,
--Mitch

A huge OK by me.

 a piece of garbage.

A small recommendation, get either an artpen or an airbrush with
it(its about 100€ extra), or you cant test the wheel bits. I recommend
the art pen, because it offers some interesting features you'd miss
with airbrush, that is just a regular pen with the wheel on top.

OK++  (assuming my opinion carries sufficient weight in such matters)

I am all for you obtaining a physical artefact reminding you of continued
promises to ensure extended input devices of various kinds continue
working as expected.

 What's the problem?  I use my Wacom Fun tablet all the time with trunk.
Trunk isn't GTK3 yet. But there are plenty of tablet bugs littering
GTK2 as well. I'm hoping that when he has the tablet, those might get
uprooted too :). There are several major know issues with tablet use
right now. a) save dialogs don't work with the tablet pen b) the core
device stops working when there is an extended device present, so no
mouse when the tablet is cinnected c) the on canvas text widget is
only so much hot air for the tablet pen.
