This bug is already Fixed in git, but is marked as Open. I am now
marking it Closed because a new stable version, 1.1.0, is
available, meaning that this bug no longer affects the current
stable release.

Please reopen if this problem reoccurs with the new version of

I'll mark it as fixed then. But I just committed a related change, if you have time, please update git and re-test.

Today I've updated mypaint from git. Now the mouse can paint without going in Gtk Input device to set it.

When you start mypaint from a terminal, what does it print?

Does the problem also happen if you have set pressure to "disabled" in the preferences?

It's most likely a GTK bug but maybe we can make a workaround.

I have a wacom intuo4 and logitech mouse.

When I start mypaint I can paint with the mouse. But after I move the arrow out of the window it doesn't work anymore.
To use it I need to go to Help->Debug->Gtk input device dialog and to enable it.
If I then restart the program the same thing happen again.
