[Continuation] from how to install huion driver

Mate, I was having problems to install this AUR package but with your answer I was able to solve this. I would like to know if this package provides a graphic tool for configuring the tablet and the pen, as in the gnome-control-center the tablet and the pen are not recognized:

The pen responds to my command, the cursor moves as I move the pen, but I would like to configure its speed and the buttons on the left side of the tablet.

In gnome-control-center it says: “No pens found please move the pen to the proximity of the tablet to set up”

In principle, once you did all the steps and rebooted the system, it should facilitate to set the buttons and tweak some settings from UI.

Is this after, or was previous situation?

A previous situation, when I had not installed anything yet, this was the message that appeared to me, when no graphics tablet was connected. After I installed the drivers, the tablet started to function normally, but the message on the gnome-control-center remains the same: “No pens found please move the pen to the proximity of the tablet to set up.” I move the pen, the cursor responds to my movements but there is no possibility of configuration.

I’m trying to upload a print but I can’t upload images, I put it on imgur but I can’t post links too :frowning:

Let me move this to a new topic, so we can try to see if there is indeed an issue or just Gnome is not dealing with it.
Are you on wayland session or X11?
Install xorg-xinput package and provide the output of
xinput
Use ``` above and bellow it for proper formatting. For image/links, till you gain more trust on the forum, use this workaround :slight_smile:

This is the ID of your device. Pad and Pen. There should be something like this in configs

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "Huion tablets with Wacom driver"
	MatchUSBID "5543:006e|256c:006e|256c:006d"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
	MatchIsKeyboard "false"
	Driver "wacom"
EndSection

but then i saw this that it seems the issue is here for quite some time

and according to this

you will be able to set the buttons only trough xsetwacom commands … all this with the v8

Better to use the release v10 from a week ago
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/digimend-drivers-git-dkms

So instead of the digimend-kernel-drivers-dkms-git as was the case in the other topic, you use this new package, so you will have to do this:
pamac remove digimend-kernel-drivers-dkms-git
then
sudo rm /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/11-huion-tablet.conf
pamac build digimend-drivers-git-dkms

Reboot your system after that and try again the settings in Gnome.

You don’t want to edit the file, so you press N for no

Well… the problem persist, is there anything else that we can do? ps: /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf is the only file that I have in xorg.conf.d

Their digimend configs are elsewhere … i’ll try to check

For now you can only use
xsetwacom list dev
and then for each dev to set the button … something like this
xsetwacom --set 'HUION Huion Tablet Pen stylus' Button 1 "button +1"

where the HUION Huion Tablet Pen stylus is actually given by the dev above. Each can be Stylus or Pad, but without the device at hand i need to read more from other users, other sources.

Edit:
Ok, so their config is in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-digimend.conf
Then you can try to create again the /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/11-huion-tablet.conf as mentioned in the other topic, and add that content to it. Still can’t asure it will work with the Gnome Settings.

Then see if by installing xf86-input-wacom things change with the detection of the stylus in GS.

So, let me see if I understand: I have to copy all the content present in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-digimend.conf and put into this new file: /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/11-huion-tablet.conf if it doesn’t work I can try to install xf86-input-wacom. Did I get it right?

No, because in that case you could just make a symlink.
You copy the content from here for that config.


To try to trick the Gnome Settings to see the tablet and be able to set the buttons.
The one installed remains untouched.
