Graphic Tablets and my first picture :D

Postby linuxgirlie » Sat Oct 29, 2005 6:32 pm

I have had my tablet a few days and have taken that long to get it setup with gimp, its not a wacom so its been even more harder, lots of xorg.conf editing later I got it to work and here is my first image:

:D Later on I want to create a comic like user friendly, pvp, penny-arcade, ctrl-alt-del et al...but I might have to invent a time machine first!!

Like the self-portrait :D

I used to have a Wacom tablet hooked up to my Linux box, but as I have absolutely no artistic talent whatsoever, it now resides on my daughter's XP machine.

Nice going :D
Ive been thinking about getting a tablet myself, having said that I'm no artist so perhaps I will go for a new external hard drive instead.

Looks ace linuxgirlie - which aiptek was it? I've got an old hyperpen 5000 (I think) that I keep meaning to hook back up to my box, but as you say there's next to no info on the web (or xorg man pages) about it. Mine's got a serial connection on, so it's probably completely different, but I'd interested in getting your xorg.conf just try it.
