Huion 420 configuration

I’m fairly new to Linux as a whole, and I’ve been having some issues with my Huion 420 tablet. The tablet actually works out-of-the-box, but I’d like to have stuff like area and left handed mode (don’t even know if that’s possible). Digimend and OpenTabletDriver does not support this device, as far as I know, so I don’t really know what else I could try, any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Install xf86-input-wacom and since you are on KDE Plasma you can also make use of kcm-wacomtablet AFAIK … That will offer some options in Settings > Input Devices > Graphic Tablet
http://digimend.github.io/support/howto/drivers/wacom/

Once you installed those, create/add/modify the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-huion.conf
with this lines:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Huion buttons"
    MatchProduct "HUION"
    MatchIsKeyboard "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Huion scroll"
    MatchProduct "HUION"
    MatchIsPointer "off"
    MatchIsKeyboard "off"
    MatchIsTouchpad "off"
    MatchIsTablet "off"
    MatchIsTouchscreen "off"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Huion pen"
    MatchProduct "HUION"
    MatchIsTablet "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "wacom"
EndSection

Reboot the system and test out some settings.

Thank you very much, it was actually only this file missing from the picture, now it’s under tablets finally.
