Tablet fever; drawing on computer screens

Jakub just got a HUGE Wacom Cintiq tablet… and he has instructions on how to set it up for Linux (well, and the Mac too, but that’s just a sentence)!

It was just a few days ago when I rushed over to Sigi’s office to see his new baby Cintiq — and I must admit, it is quite dreamy, as far as tablets go.

Jakub’s new Cintiq is humongous, however… (judging from the pictures).

I suppose I should get my shiny newish Lenovo X61 laptop working with proper tablet support before dreaming of other tablety gadgets, though. (It 1/2 way works now — just need proper pressure support and cursor rotation + screen rotation working… getting something to work fully is the trick.)

The X61 might not have the resolution or as many levels of the Cintiq, but I can lug it around with me and use it on airplanes (if there’s enough room, turbulence-free air, and suitable battery life left).

I’m looking forward to seeing what Jakub and Sigi sketch up in the upcoming days (and should probably sketch some stuff myself too).

    I’ve been thinking about getting a Wacom tablet for a while, so it’s good to know it’s relatively easy to get up and running. Thanks! 🙂
