Can't find drivers for Tablet (Slate Blue) ET-0405-U for mac

Can't find drivers for Tablet (Slate Blue) ET-0405-U for mac

Postby aspegic » Sat 19. Sep 2009, 20:53

Hi,

I'm searching for a driver that can run my ET-0405-U tablet on Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

Until yesterday I was using it under Leopard (10.5) without any problems but I just can't remember which version of the driver I need (a friend of mine installed it a year ago...).

Can someone help me with this ?

I searched Google for 2 hours et nothing came up :(

Thank you in advance!

Your tablet is a Graphire (1) tablet and the current driver for it under OSX is version 5.11. That should run fine.

At the top of this page select Support -> Drivers, enter Graphire as tablet and your operating system, then click on Search to see a list of the available drivers for this tablet.

Hi,

I hope somebody can help me. I just bought this same model second hand and when I tried to download the right driver for Mac OS 10.6 the following message appears while installing the driver:

"The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance".

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Alex.

Which driver version do you try to install ? And is your system PPC (G3/G4) or Intel based ? The Graphire tablet is supported in drivers up to version 6.05, but not tested with later drivers anymore. It may still work though.

Hi,

I tried both versions available for OS X 10.6. One allows me to install but then doesn't do much. The pen doesn't react at all. The other gives the above mentioned error.
My macbook is Intel based.

Many thanks!

Uninstall the tablet driver and restart. Attach the tablet directly to the computer (not through a hub) and try the pen: it should move the pointer on screen and the tablet LED should react. It should work as mouse at this stage, otherwise something is not ok with the hardware. (You can try also the eraser end.) - If it works at this level, use diskutility to 'repair permissions', then install the driver again. You should then have a control panel for it in system preferences under 'Others'.

Thanks,
This topic enabled me to install my old ET-0405-U on a MacBook Pro Retina with OS 10.8.2. The driver 6.17-5 is most recent which is appropriate.
