    Hello! I was SO grateful to find TabletMagic, but cannot seem to get it to work. I'm running on a MacbookPro OSX 10.6.8, and using a Wacom Intuos model GD-0608-R. The tablet appears to be working, as the light is on, when the pen is touched to the screen the light goes green.

    I am using a AluraTek USB-Serial adapter, and downloaded the drivers for it. Everything appears to be working - the tablet shows up in TabletMagic, but nothing is affected by the tablet. I'm not sure if there's a way to test if it's the tablet/adapter/whatever.

    Thanks so much!
    Amanda

    Hi Amanda,

    TabletMagic 2.0b18 seems to have a minor allergy to Intuos tablets. Give 2.0b17d2 a try instead. It's a little annoying in that it needs to reload System Preferences when you use it on newer Macs, but it works well with Intuos. The other important issue is, of course, to make sure you have a good driver for your AluraTek adapter. I've written up what I know about drivers and adapters at http://www.thinkyhead.com/tabletmagic/adapters
