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.
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
"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.
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...
For the KDE color management system, there are ubuntu packages available: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package...getdeb/oyranos
