Test – Using A Drawing Tablet On The Raspberry Pi 2

Young people like to paint and the most important hardware for Linux is the next generation. With all the excellent software for Linux available for the raspberry pi 2/3. I thought. Why not connect a drawing tablet to my Pi 2. Said and done. Well not so fast. I had to change the operating three times. First Raspbian then Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS. Now 16.04 should have worked but it was to slow. There was a long delay when drawing in Mypaint. However MATE 15.10 worked like a charm. The drawing tablet was an old Aiptek.

As always I install zram-config to compress the memory and minimize system wait. It would be nice if there were at least a 32GB SSD built in on the Pi board. It would make the experience much faster than a faster CPU.
