Graphics tablet pen buttons

Post by PeterRJG » Sat May 12, 2018 1:25 am

I have a Huion 680S graphics tablet which works well out of the box in Linux Mint 18.3. Pressure sensitivity works too. There's just one minor hassle - that's configuring the two buttons on the pen. I suspect that I'm out of luck without manufacturer drivers (they aren't any for Linux) but I'd like to actually disable them as they get int the way when I draw.

Mint sees the pen and tablet fine.

Code: Select all

peter@boxybox ~ $ xinput -list
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2+USB Mouse                          	id=9	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PenTablet Consumer Control              	id=13	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PenTablet Pen                           	id=15	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PenTablet Mouse                         	id=16	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Mitsumi Electric Apple Extended USB Keyboard	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Mitsumi Electric Apple Extended USB Keyboard	id=11	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ PenTablet Keyboard                      	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ PenTablet System Control                	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]
So does anyone know of a Linux way to configure the pen at all? Thanks in advance! :D
