problem Catalina Lightroom Intuos s

Postby photoivan71 » Wed 8. Jan 2020, 20:47

Good morning I write this post as I have a series of problems, I updated the mac to Catalina because having Sierra still I could not update Lightroom so now I have the new OS on Mac and Lightroom latest version, but the problem is that the pen of the Wacom Intuos it jerks, it becomes frustrating to work on it, I uninstalled and installed the new driver but nothing to do. Now I would like to understand if the problem is attributable to Lightroom (perhaps too heavy for my Mac) or if the problem is Catalina in conjunction with Lightroom or as a third hypothesis if my tablet is a bit dated, mod. PTH450 I state that the problem of the pen that makes me move the pointer jerky does not arise instead with the touch so to be clear if instead of the pen I use the finger row straight away. In addition, during the export of Lightroom, the whole Mac becomes slow, so to speak, while I am writing, the typing jerks, the letters are written slowly and sometimes someone loses it. I enclose the characteristics of the computer: Imac27 ", proc 2.9 Ghz Intel Core I5 ​​quad-core, ram 24 gb 1600 Mhz ddr3, ssd disk 250gb, graphics card Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M 512 MB. I state that before the changes listed above I had no problem. Thank you who will help me. Ivan

I tried the steps listed, but it did not help, unfortunately.

The lag is quite constant, though intermittently it gets even worse than average.

I will add that the lag, for me, isn’t always present. When using it now I see no noticeable difference between using the tablet and a mouse like I did earlier today.

Any news on this? It’s still very annoying to have a cursor with a low fps :/

Do you notice any performance spikes in the Activity monitor? We would need to collect some data to understand what could be causing the issue. I have tried reproducing this and I am not able to do so.

Please open the Wacom Desktop Center > Support > Driver logging and turn it On. Work with the tablet a little but and then repeat the steps above and package the log files and then please contact our support team - https://support.wacom.com - and send them these files.

Experiencing same issue, specially every time there's a CPU spike.
Cursor lags A LOT, doesn't happen with mouse or trackpad.

macOS Catalina,
Wacom Driver 6.3.38-3

btw, the clean install instructions look outdated, couldn't find some file and gave up midway.

please make it a bash script to run in terminal as one command, it's way way too long

cool, that fixed it, no longer experiencing jerkiness/lag, downgrading to 6.3.37-3 worked. Looks like this version doesn't have the com.wacom.IOmanager task, which I guess could be the culprit.

Praying to Yoda, Vishnu, Baby Jesus,
and all the religious figures that I don't get more lag.
