A friend sent me an email telling me that there were new Wacom Drivers available. Surprisingly, my Wacom Desktop Center hadn’t told me about it this morning, but when I opened the Center again, there was the message new drivers were available. I decided to use the Wacom Desktop Center to install the drivers. I did that the last time without issue. That wasn’t the case this time. The installation appeared to go as planned, but when I rebooted, I came back to black screens. I was able to get everything back without much hassle, but it was such a surprise to have something like this happen.
Next I loaded my preferences and then took a look at my Wacom Tablet Preferences window. Yikes, it look similar, but on closer inspection, I found many changes. I’m not even sure how it works. I did go to the Wacom site, but I couldn’t find any information about the changes. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t there…I just couldn’t find it.
I suspect that I am going to roll back to the previous driver until I can figure out what is going on. I’m not worried; Wacom products are fine. I just need to learn a bit about the new look and feel of the Wacom Tablet Preferences. I’ll let you know when I do.
In the meantime, look at the video below. It will tell you in more detail about what I found when updating to the latest driver.
That’s all; have fun…
