Wacom Posted New Tablet Drivers for the PC on April 28th. I Missed It!


Hello Everyone,

Karen Bonaker noticed that there were new drivers at Wacom posted on 4/28/2014.  Thank you Karen; I missed it.  The Mac drivers are still the ones from 4/7/2014…so no new drivers for Macs.  The legacy drivers for older tablets using a PC are also updated.

I did install the new ones and I’m not having any trouble with them.  But, as always, if you are not having any problems you may want to stay with your current drivers.

I don’t know if you guys know this or not, but my computer crashed.  It was under extended warranty so I am getting a replacement machine, which should arrive tomorrow afternoon.  Hallelujah!  The replacement is actually better than the original.  Want to know the specs.  OK…here you go.

New Wacom Drivers Posted 4/7/2014


Hey Gang,

Wacom posted new tablet drivers on April 7, 2014.  There are drivers for new products as well as legacy products.  Just my gut feeling, but it seems that both drivers are identical.  I have the Intuos 5 Touch, a legacy product.  I downloaded the legacy driver and found it works great with my legacy product.  The Wacom Desktop Center didn’t work with the Intuos 5 Touch with earlier drivers; I would get a message that a compatible product wasn’t found.  But with the new drivers, this added feature works fine.

Here are the links to the drivers:

Current products

Legacy products

Sorry about not making posts lately.  I have learned some new stuff about patterns and papers, and I will share it very soon.  It is really fun stuff.

Enjoy,

New Wacom Tablet Drivers are Available


Hey Gang,

There are new drivers available from Wacom.  It appears that I missed the ones posted on 10/15/13 for Macs.  There is a new set posted on 12/10/13 for Window Users.  The drivers are for Cintiq Companion Products, Cintiq Products, Intuos Pro, and Intuos.  There is a driver posted 12/19/13 for Bamboo Tablets.  Like I said, all the ones posted in December are for Windows users, the October posts are for Macs.

I did update to the latest driver because I was having a couple of issues and I am on an Intuos 5.  If you are not having issues, I’m not sure you would need to update your driver if you are on an older tablet.

Don’t forget to back up your preferences before you uninstall and install.

Enjoy,

New Wacom Tablet Drivers Available for Products Currently Being Sold


Hey Gang,

Wacom posted new drivers for the PC on 10/07/2013 and for the Mac on 10/15/2013.  I had missed the posts, so thank you to my friend Miguel for telling me about the new releases.

The new releases are only for the newer products, but I do think that the site is a little confusing.  So to make sure I understood what was up, I wrote Wacom Support and received excellent guidance from Travis Hackett, Tier 3 Support Technician.  When you go to the driver download site, you see a rather large array of drivers listed, for instance a Cintiq Hybrid, Cintiq, Intuos Pro, Intuos (previously called Bamboo), etc.  Just match your product with the proper driver.

If you have an Intuos 4 or another older tablet, then you would check the legacy driver site for the correct driver to use.  Those drivers have not changed since the September 3, 2013 release.

Enjoy,

New Wacom Drivers Available 6/18/2013


Hello Everyone,

I’ve been out and about and not doing anything on the blog…I’m so bad.  But, I had to jump in and let you know that Wacom has new drivers available.  That’s all folks.  There are posts on my blog that will tell you how to install and uninstall your Wacom Drivers.  There is a search feature above…it will take you to other posts about the Wacom Driver.

I’ll be back soon, I promise.

Later,

Additional information:

Sorry, I made this post very fast and left out some information that might be helpful.

I have not checked the regions other than the Americas, so it is possible if you live outside of that region, the drivers have not been updated for you.  All regions are usually updated within a week or so of each other.

Here is the link for the Wacom Drivers in the Americas.

You can find how to uninstall and install Wacom drivers for the PC and Mac on my blog here:  Uninstall and Install Wacom Drivers.

The Wacom Drivers can fail from time to time when launching.  Look at this blog post for some answers to that problem.

Ok…hope these links help.

 

New Wacom Tablet Driver and a Note from Me.


Hello Friends,

Guess what!  We have a new tablet driver from Wacom.  Sorry, I am a few days late; the new driver was available March 18.  I did notice something strange.  Usually Wacom leaves previous drivers on the site, but for some reason, the last driver from Feb 13 has been removed.  You can find the new driver HERE.

Here is what Wacom says about the new update:

Driver supports Intuos5 (PTH),  Intuos4 (PTK) and Intuos3 (PTZ) pen tablets and the Cintiq 24HD touch, Cintiq 24HD, Cintiq22HD, Cintiq 21UX, Cintiq 13HD, Cintiq  12WX, Cintiq 20WSX, DTH-2242, DTU-2231, DTU-1931, DTU-1631 and DTU-1031 pen displays.

Save the file to your computer and then double-click on it to launch the installer.

Release Notes:

  • Improved touch performance
  • Fixed several issues releated to custom aplication settings
  • Redesign of calibration reminder dialog
  • Fixed a handedness issue with ExpressKeys
  • Improved pan/scroll functionality in Autodesk SketchBook Pro 6
  • Other enhancements and bug fixes
  • Known limitations for Cintiq 13HD: Cintiq 13HD uses a new Wacom Display Settings utility to manage the display’s colors etc.. When Cintiq is one of multiple displays, the system display configuration must be set to “Extend these displays” while using the utility .

If you have any questions, please contact Wacom Technical Support at 800-922-6613.

A NOTE FROM ME:

I have been meaning to write a quick note about what’s going on with me.  Well, I’ve waited so long to say anything, you may already know I have taken a sabbatical from teaching for a few months.  I will be back at DAA with new classes in July.  I’m still around in the forums and in other DAA classes.  I had hoped I would have more time for my blog, but that hasn’t been the case…I seem to have less time.

Deciding what material to present on the blog is tough for me right now.  I guess it is like writer’s block.  If anyone, has a special topic that they would like to see on the blog, do let me know.  It will probably goad me into action. :)

OK…go get your Wacom Driver and look for classes from me around July.

Enjoy,

“Hey, don’t close.  I’ve got questions.”

“Don’t you always, Kevin?  Look, if you are going to live here rent-free, you need to make yourself invisible.”

“I am to our Public, but I’m working on being visible on the blog”

“Good grief, what next.  You said you had a question or questions.”

Kevin pumped up as good as a good virus could and asked, “Am I on sabbatical, too?”

“Bollocks to that! Go bounce around and leave me in peace.”

OK friends, that’s it for now.

Don’t forget to get your Wacom Tablet Drivers,
