HUION Inspiroy 2 driver installation in Manjaro Linux

I have bought HUION Inspiroy 2 small tablet. How can i install HUION Inspiroy 2 driver in Manjaro Gnome linux ?
Driver can be downloaded from here .

If that one doesnโ€™t work: AUR (en) - huiontablet,

pamac build huiontablet

then you need to convert the package yourself.

Or extract it and put the files manually in the correct place with the correct permissions.

I want to change function keys in my inspiroy 2 S tablet so that roller can function as scroller instead of Zoom in/out button. My laptop also gives error requesting to log out: Oh no, Something wrong happened. Extensions also gets disabled automatically.

Sounds like related to this issue: Wacom tablet frequently crashes Gnome desktop

That problem is introduced with the newer Gnome. Probably the older Gnome on Ubuntu is not affected by this.

@megavolt What should i do to customize keys of tablet? My tablet is not of Wacom. My System does not crashes in GNOME Wayland display server but in Wayland i have problem in screen sharing in Zoom.
