How Do I Use a Wacom Tablet in Paint Shop Pro?

  s99Raj 18:41 25 Feb 2004

I have a Wacom Tablet installed on my PC running XP Professional. How do I use it with paint Shop Pro 8.1?
In other words, how can I use the tablet as my input device instead of the mouse?

if the Tablet is USB and your mouse is PS2, they will run together, Just install the drivers from the disk. I would presume if they are both USB they will also run together. You can use the tablet as a mouse replacement if you wish. It functions just the same in other programs, but not as versatile.

Yep, Just pick up the pen and use it. Ignore your mouse. If you want to change how the pen behaves use the Brush Variance pallete.

Nope - it simply doesn't work. The mouse is PS/2 and the tablet USB but I'm guessing I need Xp drivers for the tablet, even though it shows up OK in Device Manager.
Does anyone know of a site that contains the drivers becaause I can't find them? The model of the tablet is ET-0405-U.

OK I see what you mean. I have Wacom tablets attached to two computers. Both also have a PS2 mouse. On each machine, as soon as the tablet was plugged in XP loaded a rudimentary driver. In both cases I also loaded the supplied drivers from the CD. Did you not get a disc with your tablet? If not do as Curio says and download the proper driver. I don't know how good the XP driver was because I never gave it a chance. Good luck.

I tried the above link from Curio but I got the message :

File not Found
We're sorry! The page you were trying to view is no longer here.

The CD that came with the tablet has drivers for W95/W98 etc. but not XP.
