I find it surprising that there isn't a Gimp on Linux subforum.. Since that is the platform which it was originally intended. Anyway this is a conversation continued. Dude, did you know Gimp accounts for both tips of the Wacom? You just select a different tool using the eraser side. And then a separate tool with the writing side. You can switch between the two tools by flipping the pen. Gimp automatically keeps track of it.
