I'm experiencing troubles with pressure detection in GIMP.

I can draw with tablet but it ignores how hard I press.

How to configure it properly?


Pressure is configured to 3 as it's recommended where I was finding some help, that was by default so I don't now whats wrong

With any brush - no detection. I'm using pressure opacity mode.

Thx for any help

Make sure you open GIMP with your tablet, there's a bug that causes no responding to tablet pressure when opening GIMP with your mouse.


Go to Edit » Preferences » Configure Extended Input Devices

Then you select 'WACOM Tablet Pressure Stylus', set the 'Mode' to 'Screen', and select at the 'Axis' 'Pressure'.

At the 'Pressure' there you see a curve that you can configure to very sensitive to unsensitive. Configure that, and then close the two windows.


Now go to the 'Paint Dynamics Editor' and have the Opacity and/or Size react to Pressure, and you're good to go! biggrin.png (if it doesn't work you should try restarting GIMP after configuring your tablet)
