(Note: in MyPaint > 0.9.0 the event order can be seen "Test input devices" in the debug menu.)

Fix for mouse painting committed: http://gitorious.org/mypaint/mypaint/commit/bedc2198fe4867

The issue with tablets that /do/ report pressure, but not motion without pressure, remains unsolved (need more info about the GTK events those devices generate to do anything about it).

Update: on MacOSX only the Snowleopard xorg-server v1.42 is affected, with the macports version v1.8.1 it is working fine.

Several users with special input devices (eg. capacitive touchscreens) have reported that MyPaint adds extra lines between the strokes.

This happens when MyPaint does not see any motion events between the strokes. It will interpolate position and pressure from the last motion event.

The workaround is in to either disable pressure information (in settings->pressure, set "mode for input devices" to "disabled") or to require some minimal pressure before painting (in settings->pressure, add a new control point to the "global pressure mapping" curve and drag it to (0.2, 0.0).

There were several attempts to fix this, the most recent one, reverted again in svn r330 since it caused problems on normal tablets. To find a good fix that works for everyone, someone has to analyze what GDK events you actually get on those devices and in what order.
