Tablet setup in Synfig Studio

NOTE: The DIGImend project maintainer is leaving the project in November 2016. Currently no work on supporting new tablets is done, and user support is done by community only. Replacement maintainers are welcome.

Synfig Studio is a free and open-source 2D animation software, designed as powerful industrial-strength solution for creating film-quality animation using a vector and bitmap artwork. It eliminates the need to create animation frame-by frame, allowing you to produce 2D animation of a higher quality with fewer people and resources.
