What works

Everything but stabilize and tablet-pressure options

What does not

1. Stabilize, even if you set it to maximum it doesn't affect the strokes at all

2. Pressure in tablets. When booting through a terminal SAI reports the following errors:

fixme:wintab32:X11DRV_WTInfoW Unhandled Category 2
fixme:wintab32:WTOverlap Not moving context to bottom of overlap order


What was not tested

Nothing. Briefly tried all software options.

Additional Comments

Tablet Pressure-compatibility is critical for any serious art application, but the tool is extremely performatic, lightweight and simple to use compared to Photoshop and most Linux graphics applications. You can also tweak vector pressure on a vertex by vertex method, which's slow but gives you extreme control.

HowTo / Notes

Pen pressure

The pen pressure bug IS NOT a driver bug.
Krita works perfectly out of the box and it's using the drivers already shipped with the kernel.


Old SAI1 is ONLY 32-bit.

Drawing Tablets
