QTabletEvent not working on Windows 10 with Wacom Bamboo

  • Hi there,

    i am running the tablet example on windows 10 and qt5.6 compiled with MinGW. With my Wacom Bamboo, no Tablet Event Handler is called, thus the application doesn't paint anything. I haven't found any ideas or similar problems google.

    Hopefully one of you has an idea?

    Thanks in advance!

    -- UPDATE --
    i found a mailing list thread where developers talked about stoping support for wacom in Qt5 ( If that is true, then QTabletEvent Documentation is wrong in Qt5.6 stating:

    "Tablet events are generated from tablet peripherals such as Wacom tablets and various other brands,"

    If Wacom is not supported anymore, which pens are supported? Is there any list?



  • @fdennerlein Hi, and welcome to the Qt forum!
    Just tested it with a Wacom Bamboo CTH-470. The tablet example works for me with Qt 5.6 (on Linux).

  • Ok, tested it on Windows 10, too. Looks like the driver that Windows installs once one plugs in the tablet does only recognize the tablet but not the pen. After I installed the latest driver from Wacom (, "Driver 5.3.5-3 for Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista & XP") the example works.
