Problem with drawing tablets - david - 11-11-2021

I have had a minor problem with drawing tablets for some time - it is not a showstopper.

When I open GIMP the pen is greyed out in Configure input devices. If I then open Libreoffice Draw and do a scribble, close Draw without saving, the pen works correctly. It is no longer greyed out in input devices. It is as though GIMP is failing to load something which Draw then loads.

This has occurred in Ubuntu 20.04 and 18.04, in GIMP 28 as well as previous versions.

For me this is only a minor irritation but a solution may help others.
