I have this pen graphics tablet: Princeton PTB-MT2BN, "Mousepad Tablet" (http://www.princeton.co.jp/product/tablet/ptbmt2b.html).
I have tried it with two different drivers: (A) the driver that automatically installs via Windows 7, and (B) the driver that came with the tablet on CD-ROM.
With driver (A), I do not know if it registers pressure sensitivity or not.
Driver (B) definitely register pressure sensitivity: it shows a bar which displays the applied pressure in real time.
All other functionalities of the tablet except pressure sensitivity work fine.
My problem is that none of the paint programs which I tested seems to register the pressure sensitivity applied with the pen. The pressure sensitivity is supposed to translate into width of brush, or transparency. I just want to get it to work in any paint program.
Under Windows 7: paint, paint.net, GIMP.
Under Xubuntu within Oracle VM VirtualBox on top of Windows 7: GIMP, krita.
- Which driver should I use?
- Is pressure sensitivity in paint programs generally handled via the driver, or depending on the respective painting program, or both?
- And most importantly: How do I get pressure sensitivity to work with my Princeton PTB-MT2BN, "Mousepad Tablet"?
I use Windows 7, 64 bit.
