proTablet: tablet library for Processing based on JPen   13 comments

I wrote a little Processing library that encapsulates the JPen package to access graphic tablets in Java. JPen can be used directly in Processing, but proTablet makes the syntax a little bit easier. Download it from here.

Update: Now protTablet has a simple website from where you can access the downloads, examples, reference, and some other useful links.

  1. Thanks man !!

  2. De nada! Me alegra que la librería sea de utilidad.

  3. Is this new library for using Wacom tablets, or is it a mobile platform intended for internet tablets?

  4. Protablet works fine on my setup, but when I run Processing sketches in Present mode, I can’t get the tablet information. (I’m running Processing 1.1 on an Intel-based MacBook Pro, Mac OS 10.5, Wacom Intuos2 tablet.) Is there a workaround? Thanks.


    • I just uploaded proTablet to use the latest version of JPen. Maybe this solves your problem?

      Download from here.

      If the problem persists, you could fill a bug report in sourceforge following this link.

  5. Thanks! I actually exported my sketch to a Java application, and was able to get the tablet in full-screen mode. I’ll try updating JPen later.


  6. hi
    i have a some problem.

    2011. 5. 26 오전 2:59:55 jpen.provider.NativeLibraryLoader$4 run
    정보: loading JPen 2-100213 JNI library: jpen-2-2 …
    2011. 5. 26 오전 2:59:55 jpen.provider.NativeLibraryLoader$4 logOnFail
    정보: jpen-2-2 couldn’t be loaded

    정보: no suitable JNI library found

    • Hi. What version of Processing are you using? And what platform (OSX, Windows, Linux)?

    • I tried latest protablet (0.8) with Processing 1.5.1 on Windows7 64 bits, and it works fine.

      Anyways, I will update protablet in the coming days so it uses a newer version of jpen (the underlying java library that interfaces with the tablet driver). This might help in your case, since the error you reported seems to originate in jpen.

    • Try this test package of ProTablet: 2011-06-04. It comes with updated version of jpen.

  7. The websites of downloading files dead. Besides, Is this library compatible with processing3?
