Why won't my drawing tablet work on my Macbook Air?

Asked by jtvoar16 (2044 points ) November 22nd, 2008

ANGER!
I just plugged my Wacom Cintiq 20WSX into my Air. I have the most up-to-date driver for it, I have the Mini-DVI cable plugged into it. I know the tablet works, I know my Mini-DVI works, however the tablet shows nothing on screen.
WTH? Why doesn’t it work? Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut in Mac to gather all the windows on a single screen? I think the monitor is out of a range and that is why it is not working.

Check “mirror displays” in System Prefs?

does it require a USB port as well ?
did you install the calibration tool from wacom ?

good luck kid !

there is no mirror displays button, and when I click calibrate, it wants to calibrate my Air’s monitor.

there should be software from wacom to calibrate your screen with the pen, maybe it’s downloadable from the site

I figured it out. Because the Air uses a different OS X then normal, the Wacom tablet won’t work with it… much anger and rage.
