I found that Mint Mate desktop is the best if not only virtual machine that allows me to use my tablet with MyPaint.
I only have the problem that after a variable amount the tablet stops drawing and I need to remove it and then put it back in for it to work again, there is no evidence in the console that it has stopped working.

I get these xsession-errors:

Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message with a timestamp of 0 for 0x4e00026 (MyPaint)
Window manager warning: meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0 timestamp; the pager needs to be fixed.

I got the tablet to work in Mint linux VM by messing with virtualbox mouse integration. It doesn't work perfect but probably a virtualbox USB timing issue. I'm still experimenting.

I gave up on getting it to work in version 1.0 in Windows 7.

Tested again and pressing 'R' makes eye dropper appear at mouse position not pen.

I only have the one tablet.

I am running in virtualbox Mint-mate, Fedora 17, 18 KDE, Arch...
I have the same issue on Windows 7.

python:

gtk.gdk.display_get_default().supports_cursor_alpha()

returns True

Xinput on Mint, mate DE, kernel 3.5.+:

~$ xinput -list

⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ VirtualBox mouse integration id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ VirtualBox USB Tablet id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U id=13 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]

Looking for GTK devices with pressure:
Device "ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse" has a pressure axis

device change: Core Pointer <enum GDK_SOURCE_MOUSE of type GdkInputSource>
device change: UC-LOGIC Tablet WP8060U <enum GDK_SOURCE_MOUSE of type GdkInputSource>

There is an ink dropper cursor when 'R' is pressed.

Mouse alone is fine.

Additionally, the output from running MyPaint on the command line would be useful, if you could attach that for a short sample session.

You identify the uc-logic tablet in your subject line. Is it really specific to that tablet, or is that the only one you've tried?

We don't distinguish between "pen pointers" and "mouse pointers", or rather we don't use one sort of cursor for the mouse and another sort for the pen. Could you provide some more information please?

  • What hardware? Graphics array, basically. "lspci | grep -i vga" will identify it. Its approximate age would be useful to know too.
  • Your exact operating system version numbers. For Linux, the distribution you're running too.
  • What desktop environment are you running, please?
  • Output of "xinput --list" for the version of GNU/Linux you are running.
  • Output from the following command lines, under Linux
  • Whether you get the expected behaviour with the mouse alone.
  • Whether you get the expected behaviour with any tablet which is not a UC-Logic tablet.
  • Do you get a cursor when picking colours from the screen in MyPaint, and not at other times?

pen functions fine but there is no cursor to indicate screen position of pen. This is not the case with other graphics apps -- usually the mouse pointer disappears and the pen pointer becomes visible when in the tablet area.
I have no idea what process is making the mouse cursor and pen switch priority but it is not happening in mypaint since before 1.0, windows or linux.
