Firefox 3.6, Chrome and the Wacom Tablet Plugin

Firefox 3.6, Chrome and the Wacom Tablet Plugin

Postby akirk » Tue 6. Jul 2010, 09:35

Hi there,

I am using the Wacom Tablet Plugin for my drawing web site Colorillo.

The plugin works pretty nicely, but it seems that it stopped working with Firefox 3.6. I tried it in Firefox 3.0 and there it works. Is a fix on the way?

Also I noticed that the plugin doesn't work in Google Chrome, though it works nicely in Safari. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

Just tested it with Safari and Firefox 3.6 on Win7 -64. At first it remained 'loading', but on a second try it worked ok. (I was using a newer beta driver version though, but with Wacom plugin 1.1.03.)

Thanks for your response. I tried with the currently available version 1.1.0.4 and was talking about Mac OS X.

Is there any way to try this beta plugin or a time-frame when it might be released?

I tried it now on OSX (with a newer driver version) and can confirm, that there is a problem. Pressure was working with Firefox 3.5.5. In FF3.6 I can paint, but not with pressure. I will get in touch with the developers.

Great! Thanks a lot!

Did you by chance also try Google Chrome (I checked version 4 and 5) under OS X? It doesn't work there either.

Our developers are aware of the problem with Firefox 3.6 and plan to include an update in the next driver release - which should be fairly soon. Regarding Chrome, we cannot support that at this time, it would require a major rewriting of the interface due to the way Chrome plugins work.
