Bamboo and Mountain Lion

Bamboo and Mountain Lion

Postby hiroru » Fri 27. Jul 2012, 19:48

Hi all!

Today I was trying to install Bamboo driver on Mountation Lion but it doesn't work!

Can't install bmboo software because installer is not compatible with new OS :(

Are you working on it?

The Wacom installer isn't signed, so you'll have to change the security settings on your computer to do the installation.
1. Go to the preference panes, choose "Security & Privacy"
2. Change the setting for "Allow applications downloaded from" to "Anywhere", instead of the default value ("Mac App Store and identified developers")

After which, the installer should run without a problem.

Did you actually get it to work or only to install?

Wacom drivers makes my Mountain Lion installation unstable. Removing them everything works fine. Tablet does not work.

According to e.g. http://roaringapps.com/apps:table/link_ ... oper:wacom, the Bamboo products are not working under Mountain Lion which seems consistent with my personal experience.

Anyone here got success with their tablets under Mountain Lion? Which version of drivers? What was done?

Thanks

My Bamboo works if it is plugged in before I boot my macbook pro. If the machine is already on and I plug in the tablet the keyboard and touchpad stop responding. The power button brings up the shutdown screen but have to long press to power off. My work's machine (imac) does the same thing. These are the drivers I used...

Bamboo tablets with driver 5.26 work fine with Mountain Lion. These driver are only not 'signed' yet and Gatekeeper will tell you that it comes from an 'unidentified developer'. When you select 'open' nevertheless the installer continues and the tablet works as usual. There might be some issue with older models though.

Hi!

I Have the same issue as mentioned above. So i cant confirm that 5.26 works fine with Mountain lion.. ;((

When i plugin my Bamboo Pen and Touch my OSX 10.8 freezes (Trackpad and Keyboard don't respond).
When this happens i have to do a "hard" power down..

Some other people are reporting the same problem:
http://roaringapps.com/app:4671

Also tried to remove the driver and did a reinstallation - same problem again ;(

Kind regards
Markus

I can also confirm the problem with Bamboo Pen and Touch after unpluging. Some of the things I observe:
- System Settings will not lauch (the complete panel)
- Touchpad stops registering multitouch gestures
- Some keybord problems, but I can't reproduce now to describe them in detail.

Solutions tried:
- Disable Gatekeeper
- Try all drivers back since the launching of the first Bamboo (drivers older than than 2009 do not detect the tablet at all)

It is a substantial problem and I am hoping Wacom will react quickly. Thanks!

My pen&touch works perfectly fine on osx 10.8 but I can't get the wireless kit to work, which pretty much suck because i just bought it.
I contacted the bamboo support and they are working on a driver upgrade... hopefully it comes out pretty soon!

Unplug the tablet, uninstall the driver and restart, run diskutility for repair permissions. Do NOT yet install the driver, but just attach the tablet. Verify that this works. (Also wireless connection should work without driver.) The tablet will operate as mouse device now. (Single finger touch for the models with touch.) Now install the 5.26 driver. If Gatekeeper asks, if you trust the source for the program, select to 'open' it.
