Gaomon Pen tablet Pen won't work in Paintshop pro 2018

Postby Mags365 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 4:26 pm

Hi
I have purchased a Gaomon Pen Tablet M106K and clicked on 'Browse with PSP 2018' in the Gaomon folder. I can move around PSP and change functions with the pen, no problem. When I go into the paint brush I have to make it really big
and it just paints dots and not a continuous stroke, so I can't draw, also it skips back to the paint dropper tool. I am a newbie with this and don't really know how the pen works, the manual doesn't tell you much so it's a case of keep trying different things. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you
Mags365

Open a file.
Select a brush of some kind.
Go to Palettes/Brush Variance. Click on Size. Change to Normal.
See if that helps.

Thanks I will try that. I have found that the pen does work with the PSP pen tool but nothing else.

Sounds similar to the problem I had with my huion tablet. See if this post helps you:

Hi Bruce
I have looked at the brush variance and they are all set at Normal, some of the options have an asterisk which says they can be altered for a Graphic tablet, played around with pressure and opacity but no luck. I am still getting just a single dot
with the brush and erasure when I touch the tablet no continuous line. The PSP pen tool works okay with a continuous drawing line if a bit wobbly.

Hi Dijenga
I have printed off your link. I downloaded the driver from Gaomon Website but it didn't install properly so contacted them and they sent me a link via e-mail with an updated driver and step by step instructions of how to install it which worked fine. I disabled my Anti virus but didn't disable all internet connections as they didn't tel me to do that. Will contact them again and try to reinstall it. Did this work for you?

Definitely worked for me, that's why I created the original post.

Antivirus will have no effect on your driver install for your tablet.

The reason for disconnecting the computer from the internet is windows will automatically install Billy Gates' driver ... which in most cases will not let your tablet work properly. The install had to be done in the exact steps for my Huion tablet to work. Since then, no problems. I kept skipping the step of disconnecting from the internet, but every time the windows version of the driver would be installed --- even it the tablet was disconnected from the computer. Once windows' driver is installed, your tablet won't work properly. The installation actually occurred while windows was loading so it couldn't be stopped.

Yes, turning off your modem will disconnect you from the internet. If you have already received the latest driver from the link that Gaomon sent you then you must have saved it somewhere, perhaps your desktop. So when you disconnect from the internet you can still follow the instructions they also gave you to install the driver.

In Preferences/General Program Preferences open Miscellaneous. Make sure Disable Pressure ......... is checked.

I have looked and the disable pressure is checked, I did try unchecking it but it stopped working completely so rechecked it. Perhaps I should have mentioned that the tablet doesn't work unless I go in through right clicking on the Gaomon Driver and there is an option for you to 'Browse with Paintshop Pro 2018' don't know if this is significant or not.

Thank you all for helping but my problem is not solved. I have uninstalled the the Gaomon Tablet and switched off my modem but obviously the link Gaomon sent me will not download from the e-mail without the internet. I have used the zipped files in my download folder but they have come through the internet so I didn't really think that would work and it hasn't. The other thing is I don't feel competent enough to start removing things from my Device Manager when I don't really know what I'm doing and may damage my computer. I may have to be satisfied with just using the tablet with Microsoft Paint which is not a patch on PSP more suggestions or help would be appreciated.

You will have to be more specific about what happens when you click the link on the email you were sent to get the driver. Does it download a file and give you the option to either Run or Save the file? If so, then once that file is saved it should be the driver file which, if in .zip format, has to be unzipped before it can be installed.

What were the instructions that came along with the link telling you how to do the installation?

After failing to download the file from the Gaomon Website I contacted there support people and they sent me an updated file. The file from Gaomon came as a Zip file (put in my downloads folder) (option Run or Save) I chose Run. I extracted all the files which appeared also in Download folder, then followed instructions as they came up. I also got some instructions from Gaomon with the file they were as follows:
1 Disconnect all wires between tablet and computer.
2 Uninstall existing driver completely, restart computer.
3 Close Antivirus software and all programs
4 Install the driver. (please don't change the folder to save the driver (c:\Gaomon Tablet): if there is an error message display, please don't ignore click retry)
5 Check all the wires make sure the wires are in good condition.
6 Connect tablet and computer. These I followed to the letter.
They gave me some tips
1 Make sure there are no other brand drivers in your computer, such as Wacom. (This is one thing i'm not sure of certainly never bought anything from Wacom but not sure if any have come in through Windows.
2 Install Driver as administrator. This I did the first time but haven't on the last time I installed it.

I have had some success, I went into Preferences in PSP and changed the Pen Tablet interface from Wintab installed to Realtime Stylus installed and the tools and the particle shop are now working but it is still doing some strange things like changing my colours when I change tools and the colours locked up once, it's not perfect.

Thank you all for your help my Gaomon Pen is now working perfectly and I am very pleased with it. Thank you to bruce 1951, if I had not gone into preferences then I would not have chanced changing from Wintab to Realtime Stylus. Also the Gaomon support has been fantastic.
