    Drawing tablet pen hover stops after writing with certain pressure

    I have xp-pen star 06 graphics tablet, I am trying to configure the tablet and I am making a slow progress, Now I have faced the following problem.

    When I hover the pen over the tablet the mouse moves normally but when I start writing on the tablet with certain pressure the hover effect stops and then the tablet cursor acts like mouse down, when you write on the tablet the cursor jumps to then pen position.
    I am using evdev driver
    Any help to fix this issue will be appreciated

    In evtest I can see events while the pen is hover over the tablet but the mouse is not moving.

    here xinput test output while the problem acquired, the motion stops.
