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:

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

Hi, is there a way to disable autostart? I deleted "/etc/xdg/autostart/xppentablet.desktop" but it still starts automatically. I also checked "~/.config/autostart" , nothing is there.

Edit: It was solved the next day somehow by itself.

I think it is bad that xppen unpacked its files with user permissions. Despite possible problems with updates, this is not the way to do it.

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

Hello! The current pkgbuild reports a different sha256sum for the 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)

Is there any one has backup for XP-PEN-pentablet- I cleaned my cache, so I don't have it. I need original for some research. sha256sum is 46c1bafe6cd4d9e33b9ebb4697a4183275bbc63e59e73be4e78ae12204e75493

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.
