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

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?

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

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

@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

@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

@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.)

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