GfxTablet


GfxTablet allows you to use your Android powered Tablet to act almost like real graphics tablet! Connect your device via WiFi and start painting in any image editing program on your Desktop PC. This is best used when you have a Stylus Pen on your device, because the app supports pressure sensitivity!

Attention: Currently works only under Linux, because we don't know anyone that can develop a driver for Windows or Mac. If you want to see what the app does, try to boot with a LiveCD or install VirtualBox to run a Linux in your host system.

It was a lot of work to create this app! So If you want to support this open source project please consider a donation on PayPal (see details here: http://rfc2822.github.io/GfxTablet/). Thanks in advance ;)

I have no idea what I'm doing... The installation is really confusing when I'm trying to put it onto my PC :( I'm not code savvy at all, so the instructions make no sense to me and I can't try out the app

Great Work like a charm on my ubuntu. Though it was quite complicated for me to set up things on ubuntu but the result is excellent. Love this.

No windows support? Sure it is free and open source. Too bad any professional or worthwhile programs to make good use with this app are Mac and windows. Yes, I know the app is free. Realize however people would gladly pay for this. If you don't want the market so be it. Lost potential. And running windows on a Linux VM with say wine is counter productive.
