It's been a few weeks now since I officially moved into my house. I'm still in the throes of unpacking - renovation of the upstairs rooms is slowing my progress considerably, since I technically don't have a bedroom or a drawing studio set up yet. But there's another snag that's impeding my creativity, and that's that my Wacom Intuos PTK-440 drawing tablet is suddenly in the habit of pitching a bizarre fit every time I try to plug it into my laptop.
For some reason, it always tries to select everything the cursor passes over on the screen, even when I've got the stylus a good inch away from the pad. Just trying to open GIMP on my desktop, I ended up dragging icons every which way without actually opening a single program. This obviously is going to put a crimp in my attempts to color anything until I can figure out what the deal is - but as I think I've established before, I'm none too well versed in how to fix my electronic thingies when they freak out on me. Anyone who's more learned in these matters than me, do you have any advice?
