Selected Test Results

What works

Everything related to image manipulation works.

Drawing with mouse works.

What does not

Drawing tablets in general.

The first boot works and the drawing tablet is recognized but pressure does not work.
From the second boot onward the drawing tablet does not work, the cursor move without recognizing the "click"

Pen pressure for drawing tablets does not work in any case, all workarounds like the various pen emulation systems do not work.

Also sometimes it spawns some error messages when drawing, but drawing works even with the error messages.


What was not tested

Functions in the complete version, like saving.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

I decided to set it to Bronze because PaintTool SAI without a working drawing tablet is nearly useless.

Drawing tablet: Huion 610 Pro

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.

Drawing Tablets

When submitting a test please ALWAYS write at least your drawing tablet manufacturer!!!
