With the change to libinput this doesn't work right ootb.
You'll need a configuration in /etx/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with this content:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
MatchIsTablet "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection

colinkeenan, I noticed your comment on 'running as root' now.

Install script now creates an uinput group. Any user in 'uinput' may run. You have to remove and install again though, since upgrade script does nothing.

After messing around with port forwarding and still not working, I finally tried entering the number to my computer instead of the host name. That worked. I deleted the port forwarding rule and it still works. Port forwarding isn't necessary when both devices are on the same network. My mistake was in thinking I could enter the host as 'colin' instead of '192.168.1.7' because 'colin' works with ssh but not with this application.

I went ahead and ran it as root to see what would happen. I've installed Gfx Tablet from the Google Play Store on my 2012 Nexus 7. I entered my computer host name into the app (colin) and it didn't complain. However, opening a new image in Gimp, nothing happens when I try to draw. Any tips on how to make this work?

OK - So, I installed this package and ran pacman -Ql to see what the executable is called. It's called networktablet, but here's what happens:

colin ~$ networktablet
error: open: Permission denied

I don't have to run this as root do I?
