    Question Support for pressure sensitive tablets in Wayland

    Other than the monitor (not) going into standby without crashing the desktop in the process, the one other reason I've been constrained to stick to X11 over Wayland was drawing tablets: I remember the KDE Plasma settings informing me that pressure sensitive tablets are not yet supported as input devices, and indeed they would not work in GIMP when using the Wayland session over X11. I remember my Wacom Bamboo tablet would function when drawing, but without pressure sensitivity or pen eraser detection which I rely on for proper usage.

    I wanted to know if there's a time frame for when Wayland is going to support drawing tablets. Have they been implemented to any extent and is there a point in time when we can expect them to work? Thanks.

    Although not a wayland user myself, this appears to be the current state of affairs: https://wayland.freedesktop.org/libi...t-support.html

    For mores specific answers you could try asking on the developers mailing list: https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailma.../wayland-devel
