    You'll need a package like "xf86-input-wacom". There's also a KCM config module for KDE that has not been maintained in ages. It has an issue where you cannot make changes anyway, as it doesn't save it's profile correctly. I got my stuff going using the command line "xsetwacom" tool (included in xf86-input-wacom), which is what the KCM GUI calls anyway. So, as is so often the case, the CLI is the way to go... you get complete control, for a little work. Google "xsetwacom" to find profile files etc. for the device you're using, as well as what commands to run to list devices to get the correct names.

    Test settings on the fly from the CLI. Once you have it all figured out, create a script. This is the contents of mine:
    Code:
    <snip>
    #notes          :       
    #============================================================================
    
    echo "Setting up Wacom Intuos PT S 2 graphic tablet..."
    
    # Set a pressure curve... if you care about drawing.
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pen stylus" "PressureCurve" "0 15 85 100"
    # Set a harder threshold, so you don't select stuff with a light brush of the stylus...
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pen stylus" "Threshold" "850"
    # Mouse left-click
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pen stylus" Button 1 "1"
    # Mouse right-click
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pen stylus" Button 2 "3"
    # Mouse right-click
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pen stylus" Button 3 "3"
    
    # Paste in Konsole terminal
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pad pad" Button 1 "key Ctrl Shift V"
    # Copy in Konsole terminal
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pad pad" Button 2 "key Ctrl Shift C"
    # Lock screen
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pad pad" Button 8 "key Ctrl Alt L"
    # Mouse middle-click
    xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos PT S 2 Pad pad" Button 9 "2"
    <snip>

    The moving clock K' appears to K to run slow by the factor (1-v^2/c^2)^(1/2).
    This is the phenomenon of time dilation.

    These options can also be set in xorg.conf or equivalent.

    Sorry robertw, you do see the pattern of you posts yes? I shared the info for your use, and the good of others. But I cannot go google things for you. Do that, and then come back here and post how you solved it, or the next issue you ran into, while trying to do the work yourself. Then we can look at something specific and try to help you.

    Good luck.
