    Ok, so i've seen a billion topics about this but still, none of them work, i've tried the old configure extended input devices, and that doesn't work for me... any ideas?
    the pen works fine for other thing, i only have gimp so i haven't tried other drawing tools, and it's just the pressure isn't working. thanks

    well, the tablet im using kinda just works as a mouse.
    so i asume you have to somehow tell gimp "This is a bloody tablet" somehow

    Hey Wight,

    Sorry for the late reply, I don't check here all too often.
    Unfortunately, Gimp 2.8 relies on a newer GTK+2 which doesn't fully support drawing tablets (so they will work, but without pen pressure). Your only options at this point are to either downgrade to 2.6 again (which I would recommend if you heavily rely on your pen pressure) or wait until Gimp 3.0 is released which will rely on GTK+3 which has full drawing tablet support. Sorry for the bad news!

    Cheers.

    Hello,

    I also need the pen pressure feature. I dont like 2.8 because I am having a lot of problems. How can I downgrade to 2.6?

    There's a download link for gimp 2.6.11 on lisanet's site.
