I want to try drawing digital but I don't think I'm ready for something like wacom tablet and it's kinda expensive so I don't want to waste my money for something I can't use well. I have a samsung galaxy tab and when I search for a way to avoid buying it, I found that I can turn my tablet to something like it but when I try to download the programs that they recommend in the playstore it said that I have to root my tablet but I don't want to root it.

I was wondering if it is possible to use a tablet (i.e. my samsung galaxy tab) as a Wacom-esque drawing tablet when connected to a hp laptop (without rooting my tablet)?


There’s “GfxTablet“, an Android application that…

makes it possible to use your device (especially tablets) like a graphics tablet, sending touch data (including pressure!) to any compatible (e.g. GNU/Linux) computer. Requires running the uinput driver on your PC (see website for details).
