Java Draw Solution if tablet is not working, freehand tool not working

I believe alot of people out there have specific problems with java draw. If ur problem is that everything loads but u cant draw, then here is a solution,

first u have to uninstall ur tablet, just hit the start button then right click "my computer/computer"
click on properties, then a window will open, u should see "Device Manager" under tasks/tabs, click on that
then the device manager window will open, u should see a tab called Human Interface Devices
click that then u should see ur tablet under it, right click then uninstall

after uninstalling ur tablet, u need to re-install it then restart ur pc/laptop
use ur installation disk or u can do what i did, i found a site that lets me install my tablet again (u can look it up on google)
after installing again, restart ur pc/laptop, try to draw using java draw again, it should work :)


any questions just ask me :)

Interesting solution - was your tablet working in other applications outside of the java tool?


The best way to support our community is to just keep drawing - even if it's for fun and not serious. Another way is by taking time to occasionally rate and comments drawings by new or learning artists.

the tablet would work but i havent tried it in other applications so i'm not sure, the cursor would move but in java it would not draw

A few people are still having this issue so I am sticking this topic to the top of the forum.

I didn't even install the software for the tablet, just plugged it in and got used to the fact the cursor flies around so quick. So should I just....unplug it or something?


I have long hair. People think I'm high, cause people associate long hair with drug use. I wish long hair was associated with something other than drugs. Something like...Cake! Then people would see a long-haired guy and say: "That guy eats cake!"

But mine isn't even a tablet. It's a touchscreen laptop. It won't let me draw with the pen or the touchpad. D:

well for the touchscreen laptop, i would ask mick about that, rmd may not be suited for touchscreen, best bet is to maybe get a tablet, but dont waste money till ur sure about the touchscreen issue

Re: Java Draw Solution if tablet is not working, freehand tool not working

I got it to work. I think my problem was the new version of Java because the line tool and the bezier tool worked, but the freehand tool didn't. I just installed an older version of Java and now it works again. (:
