    Nicely put.
    I have a tablet that I use from time to time and it would be sad if things stopped working. The question is, can Wacom do something about it or is it a pure matter of Qt or GTK?
    And when the wacoms are broken then probably the others are too.

    And it is not even just krita, GIMP or inkscape which would benefit from working tablets, these newer tablets can also act like touchpads.

    GIMP 2.8 relies on a newer version of GTK+2 that unfortunately has partially broken support for graphics tablets such as Wacom. If your graphic tablet doesn't work in GIMP 2.8 as it should, we recommend downgrading to 2.6 until we release GIMP 3.0 that relies on GTK+3 which has fully functional support for advanced input devices.
    Guess I've lucked out then as I've had zero problems with my Wacom Bamboo Touch in Gimp or any other program, still it's good that you can use 2.6 should you have problems while waiting for gimp 3.0.

    To be honest I never use my Wacom as a touchpad even though it's touted as 'touch', I use it in painting programs and Blender for 3d sculpting, I actually turn off 'touch' when I use it by issuing the 'xwatcom set touch off' command as it just gets in the way for me.

    Nice. It should be included by default, but it seems things have improved a lot since I have last checked.

    Yeah. I don't care about ICC personally, but I was real surprised to see all this color management suddenly show up in the newest Ubuntu release or two. I didn't think anyone was working on it, except right in the Gimp. Then -- bam! There it is.

    As for tablet support -- it'd be a real shame to lose pressure support. But, that said, some of the Qt stuff IS quite broken -- the multitouch was causing Qt to crash every time I tried to run any X app on a remote X server -- I had to downgrade Qt for it to work. And I don't even have a single touchpad or tablet on the local or remote system in question. The number of paid Qt developers has been slashed, the remaining programmers can only do so much. If this stuff's 99% done, someone's welcome to finish it but I think disabling it until it works (if not feature-complete, at least not causing other failures) is the right thing to do.

    Just for the sake of completion. And yes, it's in by default.

    I had some major issues with the latest Ubuntu 12.04.

    MyPaint upon selecting a tool wouldn't draw.

    So I don't know if it was GTK3 or X., or Unity/compiz...

    If only I wasn't using KDE... It seems there are no PPAs available, you have to compile from source. Not that big of a deal, someone determined to use it will use it. But like I said, some finishing touches are still missing. Hell, it should be made part of KDE anyway.

    Is there are special reason why you want to use the gnome color management system? Why not use the one from KDE?

    For the KDE color management system, there are ubuntu packages available: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package...getdeb/oyranos
