    Question Wacom and Mavericks
    Hi all,
    I've been following an ongoing discussion in Wacom Forum, about Wacom Tablets not working well with Maverick OS. Is anyone here familiar with whether this issue has been fixed yet? I have a large Intuos4, but it is USB tethered to my MBP. I'm looking into getting a wireless version of Wacom, possibly in a smaller form factor, but don't want to take the plunge if I will have problems with them playing nice with Maverick! Either way, I will probably not be using the Intuos4 again...simply larger than I now need. If this is still an ongoing situation, does anyone know of a decent (non-Wacom) Wireless Graphics Tablet that can be used with Maverick OS?
    Any information anyone?

    Don't think you will get any assistance. Mac operating systems for Macs exclusively.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Harry a Wacom tablet is a Drawing Tablet the Pro's use with Photoshop and the Adobe Suite to draw onto the screen of the Mac. Its not a Tablet like the iPad but one that is a over size Track Pad that you use with a pen to draw nice things in Adobe

    If the newer or contemporary Wacom tablets are using Bonjour discovery to connect wireless to your Mac and you're using Mavericks, chances are it's not going to work. As far as I can determine, Bonjour is broken in Mavericks. It no longer works to connect wireless printers that depend on it re: (Brother and HP).

    Not sure why I'm getting this type of response. I am a professional photographer using Photoshop CS6, and have been using a Wacom Intuos4 Graphics Tablet for my retouching and post processing. Have been doing so for many years. My computer is a MBP with SSD, i7 Quad Core Processor, and I have 3 external 1TB Passport Drives. This ain't my first dance! Just thought I could ask a civil question and hope for a civil response. OH..and by the way harryb2448, Maverick is the latest iteration of Mac OSX, so one would assume I had posted my question in the appropriate area. Thank you, TattoedMac for explaining to him what a Graphics Tablet is. I shall quietly go away now!

    With that kind of attitude you're not likely to get any help at all. Our forum members are volunteers not paid tech support personnel. If you don't like an answer, either move on or wait for another reply but there is no need to insult one of our members - who by the way happens to be very knowledgeable.

    You are most assuredly right! Somehow, it just seemed as if I were the one being insulted. My bad! And I shall now move on. A very gracious adieu to one and all.
