Brashen what did you set yours at?
I tried this at my wacom I4 , I think this could be necessary because int4 just eats pen nibs.
I might take 80-85% instead of 75, because this was needed for the 1024 PPlevels, and the 2048 gives a lot of feeling. Also anyone noticed that in the wacom_tablet.dat file, the maximum wasn't 2048 but 2047?
again proving this learning community to be the most valuable resource i've ever come across, thanks guys!
Check out my Sketch Book here
Crits always welcome!
Wait I have like 6 different lines that read PressureCurveControlPoint. Which ones am I supposed to modify?
Another quick question, does messing with these settings disable the 2048 levels of sensitivity?
jhferry, it shouldn't. it just tells your wacom how hard you need to press to reach the full value.
This works pretty much the same way for Mac users also.
Just use activity monitor to kill your WacomTabletDriver. Make the changes to the preferences file listed above, and you can relaunch your driver from /root/library/app. support/tablet/...
The textured surface will still chew through pens, but this is a nice work around.
hi, im new here
i just got a intuos4 and my wacom_tablet.dat has this settings for default
PressureCurveControlPoint 81 0 1024 1024 2047 2047
is this right? shouldn't be 40 instead of 81??
photoshop sometimes doesn't seem to read my options.... i don't why. i click in the tablet and the brush appears as "normal" while using variatons on the brush size.
but othertimes, it runs ok.
i don't know!
anyone know a straightforward equivalent of the stop/start service of a Mac ?
thanks, i'm having a bit of a nightmare with those steps : )
The ones you'll be looking for are TabletDriver and PenTabletDriver
problem solved. though i have now committed the sin of not reading a thread properly before asking questions. dont know how i missed the answers ; /
am now enjoying the delights of a more responsive pen. hurrah
there is a small tool that should help with configuration of your Wacom tablets.
Its an easy graphical pressure-curve editor. And with few clicks you can apply new settings to your tablet.
Tablet Pressure Curve Tool
The program was released on this Tuesday... so its brand new...
The program should work on Intuoso4, but i don't have one to test it
The tool worked fine for me. My hats off to the programmer.
EDIT: I also had to make folders under XP before it would Apply and Backup.

tool is great. i just had to make a folder, cause the proggy couldn't make it and i was getting an error.
The program should "force" to create Backup directory, but its not possible if there are no rights to do it. And that is i hope what is causing the error.
I released a new version of Tool with improved support of Vista. And I tried to fix the folder problem. Now the program under vista asks for admin rights (its impossible to start and stop tablet service without it).
I there will be any other problem (or the solution did not work) please report it by mail or post message on the web address (homepage) displayed in the program.
Still folder problems under XP.
So you still have to manually create the various folders.
I'll post further bugs I find under the program homepage! Thanks for working on it :3
Second try to fix this. More details at program homepage (i think this should not be a bug report thread) but just brief - If "it is it" than it is caused by different locale settings. In some system (mostly English) is date format e.g. 17/07/2009 (Czech is 17.07.2009) and this in backup File Name looks like folders for the program...
So... it should be fixed now.
Edit : 18.7.2009 - Confirmed The Bug-fix works .o)
Thanks Genko, it was really helpful.

Ok, I'm running OSX (iMac 10.5.7) using an Intuos 4 (L) tablet and I thought I would collate the procedures that other people have mentioned throughout the thread into one post.
- Ensure you have closed System Preferences
- Launch Activity Monitor
- Quit "TabletDriver" and "WacomTabletDriver" preferably in that order.
- Open "Users/User Name/Library/Preferences/com.wacom.wacomtablet.prefs" in "TextEdit.app"
- Edit the lines starting with "PressureCurveControlPoint" (see attached image) using one of the lines that I've listed below.
- Save prefs file that you have edited in TextEdit.app over the original.
- Open "/Library/Application Support/Tablet/WacomTabletDriver.app" and relaunch the application.
- Open up the Wacom System Preferences (WacomTablet.prefpane) and check the pressure setting works as expected.
Various settings for Intuos 3
40 0 512 512 1023 1023 (Default Intuos3 settings)
40 0 383 511 768 1023 (Tweaked Intuos 3 settings)
Various settings for Intuos4
81 0 1024 1024 2047 2047 (Default settings for Intuos 4)
81 0 870 1024 1740 2047 (85%)
81 0 819 1024 1637 2047 (80%)
81 0 768 1024 1535 2047 (75%)
Seems to work well for me. I prefer the 75% settings.
Kudos to all the other posters that got me to this point.
This was so helpful! Thank you so much!!!
