Unfortunately reinstalling it fixes nearly nothing automatically, because Catalina won't let the installer reset the permissions for you. Please try out the permissions troubleshooting steps from my readme instead.

Catalina and Intuos 3 - HOW CAN IT WORK?

Postby rvcLosAngeles » Fri 27. Nov 2020, 03:15

I've installed the driver and checked the IOManager in privacy, but it still doesn't work. The pen tracks but the click doesn't work. It works for some reason on the eraser side, but not the main side.

What do I do?

The IO manager was introduced with driver that is not supporting the Intuos 3. In fact, as already mentioned in other threads, the Intuos 3 is not supported in Mac OSX Catalina. I have merged your post into said thread so you can check the information and experience from other users.

Just made an account to say thanks for the fix! I love my Intuos 3, even though it's older than dirt and the silver paint is wearing off the edge of my pen. I have a newer Wacom tablet and it just doesn't feel as responsive—I can never get it to work with me properly, you know? Anyway, your fix has saved my relationship with my trusty ol' tablet and I'm grateful you took the time to create it. Cheers!

Big shoutout to thenickdude for making my Intuos 3 PTZ-630 work under MacOS 10.15.7. Dumped the old Wacom Driver, installed the one from thenickdude, granted the necessary permissions, and off we paint ;)

Huge thanks to Nick for spending the time to support the Intuos3's when Wacom won't. We've had dozens of newer models in this office plagued with all the typical reliability issues of the 4s & 5s & self destructing & crazily clicking mice, always buying new ones hoping Wacom will make another simple tablet as reliable as the 3 & its solid mouse. Absolute coordinates when using CAD are practically essential, and maintaining the fast pace of precision work has come to entirely rely on your work, Nick. Thank you so much. Fingers crossed MS doesn't bork it with Win11. We're getting some Surface 8's in, & when they're being used on the desktop, we'll see if the 3 makes it over the Win10/Win11 hump.
