Really need a lighter device for painting, as have had right shoulder/arm issues for a few weeks … hoping it goes away, but need to adapt things just to be sure.
So far, I can see there’s a Linux beta driver: https://www.xp-pen.com/download/index/cid/36.html, and there’s a thread on Digimend where people are saying they’ve got it working: https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend-kernel-drivers/issues/221 … a bit confused by some points, and I’ve wrecked systems before trying to sort graphics devices/calibrate, so if I may check if I’ve got this right:
1. remove AUR digimend drivers and reboot, with Ugee unplugged
2. install wacom drivers and reboot? (one person on Digimend using evdev initially, but later in thread people referencing wacom drivers worked or used wacom drivers to tweak/calibrate … nobody referencing XP-Pen’s linux beta driver)
3. install XP-Pen beta linux driver and reboot [instructions I found here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2401732 … " the script and the program aren’t set executable. Open a terminal and enter:
_cd ~/Downloads/Linux_Pentablet_V1.2.3/ _
_chmod +x Pentablet_Driver.sh Pentablet_Driver _
_(change to the directory with the driver, set the executable bit for the two files, execute the script) _
If you want to start the Driver from your Desktop Environment, you’ll have to create a ‘.desktop’ file for it and put it in ‘~/.local/share/applications/’.

4. add the 1st .conf file the Digimend thread references [after ‘xinput list’ and find right numbers] and reboot
5. trust that using ptxconf will take care of the monitors/calibration issue (let it be so, lol), or need to look at the 2nd .conf file noted on Digimend thread, and https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Calibrating_Touchscreen [not sure how to get right numbers, but can understand other steps]
