No, I would say it has to do with the GIMP build process itself.  
Long story, short after 4 re-installs I have come to determine 
that the 2.6.38.* kernals don't seem to like (some) nvidia cards.  
I googled and tried tons of things with no luck.   So...I ended 
up reverting back to 10.10 and am hoping 11.10 will actually work correctly
with my video card(on a laptop.. so can't switch out!).


On 10.10, I installed gimp 2.6.* from apt package and the pen works with 
pressure sensitivity AND the input devices work correctly for editing.  ie, 
Gimp 2.6.x works fine.

I then built/compiled all of the prerequisites(Glib, GTK+, gdk-pixbuf, 
pixman, cairo, babl, gegl) and then gimp into its own prefix  BUT the same 
issue is happening, so all I can assume from this is that it has to do with 
some from the build process(or something missing!)  However, this time while 
the items are all greyed out, the pen pressure DOES work this time.  The thing 
that does not work is the stylus/eraser(meaning that they won't 'bind' to 
separate tools and remember them).   Ie, it's working as a regular mouse + 
pressure.  
One thing I did see when configure ran was in the optional modules section 
of the output, I got this:


Linux Input:   yes (GUDev support: no)




While this is a bummer, it is something I can live with for a few months 
until 2.8 is actual release and hopefully the packaged build will work 
properly even if I have to build the prerequisites manually.   Hopefully by 
that time, 11.10 will also be released and I can make a test partition to 
see if it agrees with my video card.

 I recently blew away my Ubuntu 10.10 and installed 11.04.  
 Not liking Unity, I figured I would try Gnome 3.  After 
 getting Gnome 3 set up, I downloaded babl,gegl, and gimp 
 tarballs and proceeded to install all sorts of dependencies
 (required and many optional ones) via apt-get packages. 
One thing you might check, since I had the same symptoms after the same
upgrade, is that

xserver-xorg-input-wacom

is installed. (sudo apt-get install xerver-xorg-input-wacom).  For some
reason it was lost when I upgraded from 10 to 11.04 and the install
fixed the problem instantly for me.  (Well not instantly, I had to
restart X.)

[Gimp-user] Gimp 2.7.3 compiled but tablet greyed out in Input Devices

2011-09-01 Thread gerard82

getting Gnome 3 set up, I downloaded babl,gegl, and gimp 
tarballs and proceeded to install all sorts of dependencies
(required and many optional ones) via apt-get packages. 

I then 
compiled babl(0.1.4), gegl(0.1.6), glib(2.29.8) gtk+(2.24.5) 
and finally gimp 2.7.3(note that all the above are from 
the gimp.org ftp site.   Prior to compiling gtk+, gimp 
failed on the make with some really strange errors(sorry... 
I don't have them any more) which is why I compiled my own 
copy.   Also note, ALL of the above were compile into a 
different prefix with :

./configure --prefix=/home/joefrazierjr/opt

Once I finally got GIMP compiled, I can see my tablet 
in the input devices, but they are greyed out along with 
all of the below: 
SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
Virtual core XTEST Pointer
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 cursor
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 eraser
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 pad
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 stylus


The ONLY thing that is NOT greyed out is Core Pointer.  


The main reason I complied is because for whatever reason,
the PPA package available does not also install Python(but
 does let the tablet work), so I am kind of stuck here.

Note that I am comfortable with using the shell, but am 
a power user in linux, so please assume that I know nothing
about linux in any replies.  Also, if I need to remove, any 
of the compiled code and recompile, I assume running make clean
will fix it up correctly?  

Note, my Bamboo Fun works fine in MyPaint(with pressure sensitivity,
etc), so the issue is with either GIMP compile itself or GTK apps
in general(I have no idea if MyPaint is GTK or not so someone might be
able to rule that out).

Also, I still have the build folders, so if I need to link to any of
the config.log files, please let me know and I will put on my dropbox.


Thanks or any help!

Hi Joe,
Here's how I installed Gimp-2.7 in Gentoo.
http://www.gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=10t=1261

I don't like to install to a /home directory.
Gerard.
