You’ve got a lot of reading to do in your future.

man pamac

Oh, and it seems that these drivers are in the AUR.

Hello and welcome,

There is an AUR package. Don’t make yourself the life harder.
You will need to install dkms package and linux kernel headers. In short, you have to run this commands in terminal:

sudo pacman -Syu $(pacman -Qsq "^linux" | grep "^linux[0-9]*[-rt]*$" | awk '{print $1"-headers"}' ORS=' ')

sudo pamcan -S dkms
and then
pamac build digimend-kernel-drivers-dkms-git

Same deal if you use Pamac UI and install the packages manually. Once is done, reboot.

Depending what DE you use, there are other things you can tweak too.

In KDE Plasma you might be able to use the kcm-wacomtablet UI to set it up, but you have to add to /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/11-huion-tablet.conf this lines:

# Huion tablets
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Huion class"
    MatchProduct "TABLET"
    MatchIsTablet "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "wacom"
EndSection

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

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

You kind of got already the pointers above. Hope this helps too. :slight_smile:

That command is to get information about your installed kernels and install the headers for them, in case the manual identification fails :slight_smile:

by the way device are not indicate in gimp preference (input device), (therefore penpressure does not work now ) and i got some of this
