Supported tablets include the UD, UD-II, ArtPad, and ArtPad-II (ArtZ-II) models. This is an ongoing open-source project to bring full support for all serial Wacoms. See the accompanying documentation in the download for details. Source Code is available.

I hope the developer comes out with a version that will support the growing number of older USB-based tablets that Wacom has abandoned. All those older but perfectly sound Intuous and Graphire tablets are just collecting dust without working drivers on the newer versions of OS X. I would gladly pay a shareware fee to regain usefulness of my old ET-0405-U vs sending it to a landfill just because Wacom refuses to update drivers to spur users to buy new models from them.

Version 2.07b works superbly on my Intel macpro with my old UD 12 tablet and keyspan USB to serial adapter, I even wrote this review using Inkwell! The software still lacks some features ofered by the Wacom softwarer and required a little adjustment of the settings beffore I was happy, but this is still beta software and as such works extremely well. Aftcr upgrading I had a problem with the deamon hanging but restarting appears to have fixed this. Considering Wacom's lack of support for non USB tablets, this is a godsend.

the TM 2.x series is a great step ahead ! again i'm very grateful for all the efforts the developer has been and will be (see todo list) putting into this ongoing project. it's a very good result we are presented with in vs. 2.ob1, for the lazy ones it even suffices to accept the automatic tablet detection setting ! thousand thanks to Scott Lahteine !

big praise to the developer, Scott Lahteine !!! this latest intermediate release 1.0b8 (as i understand it) brings tablet control back to Tiger (10.4.6). just open and quit the application, no settings, the daemon gets triggered and the tablet is accessible even on both of my monitors. Scott, thanks a lot(t) ;-)

I look forward to the full development of TabletMagic. The program seems to me to be about 60% complete. At least it is able to see my Wacom UD1212R and I was actually able to move the cursor around, albeit very unpredictably. However, I was not able to utilize it as an actual tool. I was going to sell my tablet on eBay, but now I think I will wait awhile longer to see if more progress is made. I hope the author is not on an extended vacation because I really miss using the Wacom. The panel where you set your tablet and monitor sizes does not work properly. There is no way to set the pressure, speed or resolution for the stylus, even though there are panels for such things. I would be happy to pay a shareware price for this software if it worked properly. I wish Apple would get their heads out of their "dark place" and help people develop programs that benefit their customers. Zhmmy

I'll hold off selling my old Artpad II on eBay if it looks like there will be support for the tablet and my iMate USB-ADB adapter in OS 10.3 with this software. So, another request for ADB/iMate support real soon, please!!

So near, it seems tom make it work in OS X 10.3.5... Have a Intious A3 tablet. GD-1212-R. Experiences with TabletMagic 1.0b7.: 1. Contact with the tablet: identifies "GD-1212-R00 Version 1.2-7". Don't know how to setup the parameters???... "WACOM IV" seems to give pressure data. "WACOM II-S" seems to give correct feedback on the event. All speeds seems to work. But, the Daemon seems to crasch/not launch when I quit TabletMagic. -- have Mac OS X 10.3.5. all patches. In companion with a Keyspan USA-28X. (The same hardware works perfectly in OS9.2.2 with the latest Wacom drivers.) Any hints? What to expect with this tablet model (GD)?

If you can produce an ADB support for ArtZ II tablet on Mac OS 10.3 or above w/ the iMate... You'd be a GOD! My tablet that was one year old when Wacom Fultered on us all, has been in storage for 4 years now. Would love to use it again someday. Thank you.
