The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Inkscape and Wacom
« on: August 11, 2010, 11:12:37 AM »
Lately when I load up Inkscape, it tells me to reload my Wacom software.  Finally, I quit ignoring it and reinstalled.  Now my Wacom mouse doesn't "line up" correctly.  For example, if I draw a circle, it is not where it should be on the page.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I'd love to resolve this without needing help from my "nerdy" son.

I have never heard of that before.  Maybe if you go into the properties or utilities and set it up for the proper screen size that could be a problem. That is all I can think of.

Have you tried downloading latest drivers or is that automatic when you reinstall?

Woo Hoo!  I got it working thanks to a few folks at InkscapeForum.com.  The problem is in the dropdown menus under "Input Devices".  The default mode will appear as "Screen" but the device is actually disabled.  Hmmm.... that only took about 4 hours of my day....  :shock:  Oh well, at least I learned something new.
