Installing Wacom graphics tablet on Linux

Now you can see what someone with some real skill and talent can do with MyPaint. It’s an open source programme available on Windows and Linux. Installing a graphics tablet on Windows is as easy as going to the site and downloading the appropriate software for the tablet. Installing my Wacom tablet on Linux proved to be a case of third time lucky. I always try to see if a device will work on an operating system first or not. Unless you have clear instructions with a device to install particular software , these days the device will often work by itself and then you can install brand specific drivers and improvements as you go along. I tried plugging in my Wacom graphics tablet on Linux 17.2 but the pen and tablet were not going to co ordinate. So I tried the wacom.py Python script I found and it came up with a couple of errors . It might work for you, though. Lastly , I found the Ubuntu Forums site where there were some very specific instructions about half way down the page under section 1. I copied and pasted each line of code into Terminal and pressed enter. What I liked about the Ubuntu Forum site was that it explained what each part of the code was doing. I really enjoyed doing that and the information provided on the site was helpful. I then shut he computer down and rebooted.

Brushes on MyPaint are fun

Once I got my Wacom graphics tablet the right way round I was in business. I downloaded some more brushes from the MyPaint site and now I just love MyPaint even more and feel as though I can actually grow with this paint programme. The MyPaint site has a gallery of the sorts of things people have done with it and YouTube has some tutorials for it.
