What works

Pen pressure with Wacom Intuos tablet works fine when enabling all the flags in the .ini files. 

All other features seem to work. 

What does not

When you first click on a canvas after opening a new one it gives an error that quickly goes away. I don't know how to debug this yet. 


Open the .ini file and set all the flags to yes. Especially the wacom tablet bug workaround. 

What was not tested

Saving and exporting files. The options are greyed out due to license.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

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!!!
