I am having the same problems as @linuxmobile. When I launch the GUI after installing from the AUR it says I need to be running as root (but the UI is blank except for the OK and Cancel buttons). I verified that the settings files were in my home directory. I also tried linking the config files from /usr/lib/pentablet/conf ~/.local/share/pentablet but the same effect. The GUI is missing any options.

Any pointers as to where to check next? I have XP-PEN STAR G640

EDIT I contacted support and then sent me this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZmRZr7aH6M

After chown the /usr/lib/pentablet directory and unplugging and replugging the usb cord for the tablet the driver provided here worked as expected

@effeffe Sorry! It was my mistake. Checksum is fixed.

effeffe commented on 2022-04-20 10:17 (UTC)

Hello! The current pkgbuild reports a different sha256sum for the install.sh.patch than the one present on the repository. Can a maintainer/collaborator investigate if this is just a simple repackaging mistake, or something else is going on?

Thank you

Configuration is not saving after last update. Closing and opening the program resets all settings. When reinstalling I get "warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/lib/pentablet/conf/xppen/".

Edit: fixed by changing the owner of /usr/lib/pentablet/conf/xppen to my user and group (for some reason it was owned by root)

BTW, I'm working on new version of driver, it will be packaged soon.

Is there any one has backup for XP-PEN-pentablet-3.2.1.211019-1.x86_64.tar.gz? I cleaned my cache, so I don't have it. I need original install.sh for some research. sha256sum is 46c1bafe6cd4d9e33b9ebb4697a4183275bbc63e59e73be4e78ae12204e75493

synapse84 commented on 2022-04-01 00:55 (UTC)

A little late to this, but to have the GUI start minimized, you can pass it the /mini command line argument.

I appended it to the end of the Exec line in /etc/xdg/autostart/xppentablet.desktop to only effect startup.

Poilrouge commented on 2021-09-05 21:24 (UTC)

@generic-muffin32 I don't think there's a way to make it run in background at the start. But if you want to not have it launched at the start, you can remove the /etc/xdg/autostart/xppentablet.desktop file.

generic-muffin32 commented on 2021-09-03 04:12 (UTC)

Is there any way to make this run in the background on start? I know that it is supposed to do this by default but since I am on i3wm I have to set what I want running on boot manually. So do you think there are some launch parameters I could use?

Cyprien_bzh commented on 2021-08-30 12:36 (UTC)

Sorry, it have been updated now with no problems. Perhap's it was not available for few days...

rad4day commented on 2021-08-27 11:05 (UTC)

@Cyprien_bzh can you give more information about that?

The link clicked directly on here is giving a 403 because of the referer but the package is building for me on my PC and my build server using either yay or makepkg directly without a problem.

Cyprien_bzh commented on 2021-08-27 05:55 (UTC)

I can confirm that the link is not valid. I can't update my package.

ptrLx commented on 2021-08-19 14:00 (UTC)

Hey there. It seems to me that the download link to xp-pen has become unvalid. A newer version (3.2) is available on the website.

Mashiroto commented on 2021-07-14 21:28 (UTC)

its seem to be working correct, i was using another person driver, unable to save xp-pen configuration. now its working. thx alot.

CIAvash commented on 2021-07-13 13:45 (UTC)

@zwastik running /usr/lib/pentablet/pentablet directly seems to kinda work. If it doesn't, you can just run env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb /usr/lib/pentablet/pentablet.sh.

zwastik commented on 2021-05-01 03:33 (UTC)

Any idea on how to run this natively under wayland? It seems /usr/lib/pentablet/plugins/platforms only has libqxcb.so Does this means only X11 is supported even though qt5-wayland is installed?

AverytheFurry commented on 2021-03-08 23:57 (UTC)

The issue was the setting "force full composition pipeline" in nvidia settings. Would still be nice to have the old version.

AverytheFurry commented on 2021-03-08 23:51 (UTC)

It would be nice if there was an aur entry for the old version of this software, since it actually worked for me. Pretty sure this ver. says it's in beta on their website. This one only lets me use my pen on the right third of my tablet.

Please. See my way: 1. https://ibb.co/WpLS9C6 2. https://ibb.co/k8HKkkM 3. https://ibb.co/427XBKp

And i can't select anything or setup anything because the software don't recognize my tablet Deco Pro small

linuxmobile commented on 2021-02-16 16:30 (UTC)

@Poilrouge Wait. I really appreciate your work, but if this doesn't work proper, i need to tell you. Your answer are too aggressive. I hope I can find a solution for the problem.

Poilrouge commented on 2021-02-16 16:22 (UTC)

@linuxmobile Well thank you for your clever directives, but when I publish a new version of a package I of course always at least try to reinstall it from scratch before releasing.

linuxmobile commented on 2021-02-16 12:47 (UTC)

@Poilrouge I know about your answer. But still not working. And program say: 9 inch tablet. And not say Deco Pro Small name, like previous version of that. Try installing yourself from scratch (delete files from ~/.local/share/pentablet/. Install again, and check if it work proper.)

Poilrouge commented on 2021-02-16 12:31 (UTC)

@linuxmobile I've already answered to this...

linuxmobile commented on 2021-02-15 23:02 (UTC)

Again, xppentablet driver don't work proper: see my picture example: https://ibb.co/kXfdh1G

zwastik's link does work indeed, it also requires changing a few paths in the PKGBUILD.

The source zip's link seems already dead, it gives a 404 error.

I have problem when I try to work with dualscreen. I can't choose the width and height to fit my entire screen. So, there is a zone in which I can't go m<th my cursor. Any ideas ?

Poilrouge commented on 2021-01-25 11:14 (UTC)

@linuxmobile

Your problem looks like what happen when there's no user configuration when trying to launch the utility. For some reason, the utility does not create them automatically at launch (hence the pentablet.sh.patch).

Check if the files ~/.local/share/pentablet/{config.xml,language.ini,name_config.ini} have been created, if not that is where the problem comes from.

You can hotfix this by copying them from the /usr/lib/pentablet/conf directory into a ~/.local/share/pentablet directory with 755 access.

If that is the indeed then problem, we need to know why these file haven't been automatically copied. Maybe your home directory path isn't of the form '/home/user/'?

Hudd commented on 2021-01-24 18:03 (UTC)

Doesn't work after update

How do you run this under wayland?

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb GDK_BACKEND=x11 env -u WAYLAND_DISPLAY xp-pen-tablet

Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyqt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display :0 qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.

This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

The icon file from tumblr doesn't work for me too.

You can still access it from http://web.archive.org/web/20200825011923if_/https://66.media.tumblr.com/avatar_df104055a5e0_128.pnj

Please, either change the URL to the archive link, or just place it in the repo (although, I'm not sure about the license of the icon).

danievdm commented on 2020-11-30 09:39 (UTC)

Opening this shows no tablet for me and I see mine is not listed in the config file - I have a Deco mini7. Anyone know how to add it via the config file? I'm thinking maybe the <DeviceName>G640S</DeviceName> line must match something?

My tablet works fine under Manjaro Linux (including in Krita etc) but I can't remap buttons.

palmr commented on 2020-10-29 18:35 (UTC)

In Pentablet-Driver.desktop is there any reason for OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Settings;XFCE and it excluding KDE?

As a KDE user it took me longer than I'd care to admit wondering why it wasn't showing up as an application to launch.

Alden commented on 2020-09-19 02:20 (UTC)

@caelanritter I, too am having this same issue. I cannot persist changes once the settings panel closes. I must keep it open during my entire time using the desired monitor.

caelanritter commented on 2020-07-03 20:27 (UTC)

I have an xp-pen star g640 tablet. Without this driver, my middle click button does not work. To get it to work, I have to run xp-pen-tablet as root, which gives me

QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

It does work after that, but only if I keep the settings dialog box open on my desktop; if I close it, the tablet stops working entirely until I replug it in or open the settings back up.

Is there a way to make it work without having to keep the settings open?

Noeljunior commented on 2020-06-27 18:03 (UTC)

Keep in mind that when I said that, there was no indication they would keep a beta branch available. Now we see they look to be keeping it so no point on merging.

Alad commented on 2020-06-27 17:25 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-27 17:25 (UTC) by Alad)

Concerning the merge request: That argument makes no sense to me, when "beta" literally is "a pre-launch of the stable version" and even the source mentions "beta driver"...

MalcJPM commented on 2020-05-09 11:12 (UTC)

Hi Poilrouge, great work with this - thank you! I too prefer to have the driver more integrated and run through the package manager.

Would it be possible to change the package to the latest (non-beta) release - or would that need a new AUR entry as it's out of beta?

https://download01.xp-pen.com/file/2020/04/Linux_Pentablet_V1.2.13.1.tar.gz(20200428).zip

Not sure of the convention!

Cheers!

Hi Poilrouge,

I know that your were probably a "simple" user. The remark about the functionalities was also for the "normal" users, just to make them be aware of differences with the "full" version. The request for the name change was just because when Xp-pen will release its final version, your folder name will become obsolete. And in case of changes made into this folder, they will be lost.

I hope the linux drivers will soon be full featured. We really miss pen presure settings.

And, above all, Thanks for your work. It helped me setting up my new xp-pen tablet.

Poilrouge commented on 2019-12-28 16:12 (UTC)

Hey laurentO! Thanks for the heads up on the driver update.

Just to make sure that we're on the same page, I'm just a user, like you, and in not way linked, tied, or affiliated to xp-pen and their product or software. Therefor, I have, to my knowledge, zero capability regarding the driver functionalities or performance.

I just wanted a way to better integrate the driver into my Arch system and share my intall script tweaks via the AUR. Yes, I agree with you regarding the lack functionalities and perfs comparing to the windows the version but, then again, I don't believe I can do anything about it.

As for the package name, I want to respect what I think is the providers intent. Meaning that, as long as xp-pen consider this driver to be a 'beta' so much so to put it in the name of there downloadable archives, I'd rather keep it as is. I've removed the 'beta' from the desktop file and the CLI command link though.

laurentO commented on 2019-12-28 11:36 (UTC)

The driver runs well, even if it has less functionalities the windows one. Pen pressure is really low and can not be set by the GUI windows settings.

Could it be possible to remove "-beta-driver" from the installation folder name ?
