The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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.
