I’ve been setting up Manjaro recently trying to switch away from Windows. I’m familiar with Linux from the past having done a few setups before, but this is my first time in 10 years making a serious attempt at switching away.
I’ve spent the past 2 weeks crawling through forum posts trying to find a solution to this issue with no luck.
My XP-Pen Artist 15.6 pen display tablet appears to be correctly recognized by Manjaro out of the box. Pressure and the display work as expected. lsusb shows it as a line item “Bus 001 Device 006: ID 28bd:000c XP-Pen ARTIST 15.6”.
I have two issues however:
The pen is tracking across both my main monitor and the pen display, so the input does not line up with the pen. I cannot find any way to change this.
I see no way to configure the hotkeys.
I have tried the following:
installing the official driver from XP-Pen.
The setup application installs and runs, but cannot detect my tablet no matter how many times I reinstall or restart my computer, or unplug the device.
installing the xp-pen-tablet driver from AUR
exact same issue as above
installing Wacom Tablet Tools in the KDE tablet settings menu
Does not detect my tablet even with the manual search option.
Does not detect my tablet
does not appear to work on KDE, or may just be outdated.
So obviously I’m stuck. I’ve exhausted all possible avenues on my own, and any assistance is appreciated.
it will say no tablet detected and ask you to load it manually.
go to the next screen, update any info as needed to match your tablet, then hit Save. Application doesn’t say anything when you hit save but supposedly it did something in the background…
restart computer again
open “Wacom Tablet Settings” again
this time it should now detect your tablet correctly and give you the options to set it up.
I then set it to be locked to my tablet screen with the “Map to Screen 2” option. Other tabs let me set up the express keys, but some of them were out of order, I assume because it’s not an actual wacom tablet.
