Then I follow is work. But.. I Use Windows 10 my Gimp 2.6.9 Follow Below :
I know this is a bit outdated (the last post was in October), but I've stumbled on a different, although more troublesome, way to enable pressure sensitivity in GIMP 2.8:
- Plug tablet in.
- Launch 2.6 (in this case I was using 2.6.12)
- Go to File > Preferences > Input Devices > Configure Extended Input Devices...
a. If you get an error saying no input devices found, close 2.6 and relaunch.
- Draw something on the canvas using the tablet.
- Close 2.6
- Launch 2.8
You should now be able to draw in 2.8 with full pressure sensitivity. I'm not sure why this works, but I've tried it, rebooted my computer and tried it again with success. I am using Windows 8, but I believe it should work on all versions of Windows. Because OSX used X11 for 2.6, but not for 2.8 I'm unsure if this process would work.
Using Ubuntu 12.04 I was able to get 2.8 to handle pressure sensitivity right out of the box--but it could have been because I had just launched & closed 2.6 and had both installed side-by-side.
Like I said, this is a bit more cumbersome than the solution 2blackbar suggested above but I figured it was worth sharing.
