Splitting drivers to get Photoshop pen pressure support?

2010-03-09, 19:37 PM

As far as I know, the pen pressure problem for photoshop still exists? Since the problem is that the Wacom driver only does pen support, and the Lenovo driver handles both, how easy would it be to split them to a pen driver and a touch driver? Are they closely integrated? It seems like the best thing to do would be to split the functionality and install individual drivers for each to use the wacom pen driver with a lenovo touch driver. Is that possible?

I got it working by just simply installing Wacom Bamboo drivers. Pressure sensitivity works, eraser works and so forth.

Thanks for posting this--I'm curious if either of you has gotten pressure sensitivity to work in GIMP?

Thank you, I installed the Bamboo driver and also checked out the page, and it works with an updated touch driver! For anyone out there also using GIMP, here's a summary of what I did to get GIMP to register pressure sensitivity on an enhanced multitouch x200t running Vista 32-bit:

 

1) Download and install Wacom Bamboo driver. (version 5.2.1-6a released March 15, 2010)

http://www.wacom.com/downloads/driver-detail.php?id=216

2) Reboot after prompting.

3) Play with GIMP--need to open it twice for pressure sensitivity to register. Touch function will be messed up (not calibrated, and Control Panel says the drivers aren't installed)

 

4) Download and install Lenovo x201t Multitouch driver. (version 3.0.7.13 released Feb 10, 2010)

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74908

5) Reboot after prompting.

6) Play with GIMP--again you'll need to open, close, then open it again for it to work. You can now use two fingers to zoom in and out while drawing with the other hand! W00t!

 

Have fun!

Update for Windows 7 (32-bit):

 

I installed a different driver for pressure-sensitivity:

http://www.wacom.com/tabletpc/driver.cfm

 

The multitouch driver at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74908 still works.

 

Hope this works for some people out there.
