Hello to everyone

Hello. :slight_smile: I’ve been on Linux since May 2017, and have just started running Endeavour, with Mate/LXDE. It’s great; a big thank you.
Main thing is to paint; not a very online person, but I wanted to paint a wallpaper, by way of thanks, and hope people enjoy it. Will see if I can post it now. :slight_smile:

Hello manuel :slight_smile: and thank you for your welcome and offer of help. Yes, I’d needed to wait a short while before being able to post, but have been able to post up the wallpaper just now. I needed to resize it down a bit, but no quality lost, so I hope you enjoy it. It was fun to paint, including learning more about galleons! :slight_smile:

Hi zoli62 :slight_smile: and thank you for your welcome. I’ve posted a galleon wallpaper (colour and greyscales), but if you mean you’d like to see a few more pictures, just let me know. Do you paint too?

Hi and welcome to the forum!
Do you paint analog and digital? If digital, I wonder what your setup looks like. I got a Wacom Intuos 3 (somewhere… :sweat_smile:) but never got it configured well under Linux.

Hello northernlass and a warm welcome to our forum. The OS is truly wonderful to use each day - which is the reason why I switched to it once I used it for a while; I think you’ll find the same thing in our forum. I’m looking forward to seeing your artwork.

Hi DevNul :slight_smile: and thank you for your welcome. I’m surprised to hear your Intuos 3 doesn’t configure well under Linux. With my device, it’s just a case of installing the kernel headers, and the aur’s digimend package. I’m using the LTS kernel … not sure if the Intuos would work better with another kernel?

Totally digital since a few years before coming over to Linux, and have always used the Ugee 2150 on Linux. That has the drivers in the kernel (+headers/digimend). I just searched ‘intuos’ on the digimend issues page, incase anyone had made reference, but there’s nothing I can see … the linux wacom project you’ve probably already tried. I know when I tried the new Wacom 15.6, they were helpful (couldn’t get away with the lack of brightness/contrast buttons).

I can recommend the Ugee 2150, if you ever feel like looking at anything else. This one is showing no wear and tear, after 3 years, and works great. Ergotron arm is great with it too. I use ptxconf (aur) to make the pen centred on the Ugee (2nd) monitor. I’m not sure if there’s a newer version of the Ugee 2150 (Amazon), but mine has 2048 levels of pressure and not 3-in-1 wiring, which is fine.

I think digimend support the XP-Pen 15.6 and 22, which are linked with Ugee (Ugee’s replacement nibs can be purchased via XP-Pen store), but, if interested, best to check. If you’re in the UK, XP-Pen has a store, and a wide variety of devices/accessories, and great customer service. Ugee very good too. I’ve used a Huion 1060 Pro briefly before the Ugee, and that was plug and play (back in the early days/Linux Mint), no problems at all.

Hello ve9cbc :slight_smile: and thank you very much for your welcome. Great that you enjoy EndeavourOS and the forum so much. :partying_face: Thank you for your interest about artwork.

Hello northernlass! :slight_smile: No, I don’t paint, I once wanted to study as an architect. I just love beautiful and demanding nature-themed pictures. Otherwise, I usually shoot photos.
