Dolphin (file manager) not working with stylus/pen

Hi everyone

I have installed Manjaro on my Convertible Thinkpad (X1 Yoga). The pen works great out of the box except if i use it in Dolphin.
The problem is that the pen input is registered about 5mm below where my pen tip actually is. So for example if i click on a certain file it actually selects the file below.
I have not found any solution, not even someone having the same problem.
I know that the Manjaro community is very helpful and now i hope someone here can help me with this problem :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance

Did you installed xf86-input-wacom package? You have to reboot after that.
Also, add this line to your .bash_profile


Hey thanks for taking your time!

I did not install xf86-input-wacom because i already have xf86-input-libinput and i think they would interfere with each other. Apart from Dolphin my pen works fine.
If you still think i should install xf86-input-wacom, should i first uninstall xf86-input-libinput? And is there anything else i should watch out for?

Where can i find .bash_profile?

Found .bash_profile (It is in home ~/.bash_profile for everyone else not as linux-savvy, like me).
Adding the line


like @bogdancovaciu suggested solved the problem.


  • I did not have to install xf86-input-wacom.
  • The problem was not only in Dolphin but also in other programs like Konsole
