|One of these days, I need to get one of those tablet thingies..|

|Gimp isn't too friendly with pressure sensitivity at least out of the box. My copy wasn't utilizing the pressure sensitivity of my Wacom. Might have to look for drivers or a plugin somewhere.|
Great work Thorax and I encourage all budding digital artists to tune in to watch Photoshop Hero Stowe draw up tonight's comic 7-9pm at SCATScomic.com

|The pressure sensitivity in GIMP 2.6 worked fine, and I actually found it to be annoying. I didn't know it did that, and it was kind of a hassle to undo.|
I suppose if I know how and why I'd be using pressure sensitivity, I might go for it.

|line variety! keeps your drawing from looking like it was drawn with a mouse :)|

|yet it was drawn with a mouse (sorta)...|
I think I ought to tweak settings, because the pressure makes your line fainter towards the BG color when you press less. I'd really rather have the width of the line change.

|well ya that's the idea. should be able to configure a brush that just changes width of line.. press harder = bigger line. try also doing color on second layer set to muliply. but I don't know jack about gimp so i'm not very helpful!|

|That was the prob I had with it. It would do transparency but not line thickness which is pretty lame. Just opened it up to play again and report on my findings...|

|Great success! Just got my Wacom working 100% in Gimp in Ubuntu. Use the first link mostly for getting a clean install then the second for managing the tablet in Gimp:|
From there make sure you are showing the "Brush Dynamics" area in your main Gimp toolbar. To the right of "Pressure" make sure "Size" is checked.
