This is kinda continuation of viewtopic.php?f=6&t=265991&p=1447213&hi ... m#p1447213 but with some info from me. So far I am unlucky Wacom-tablet user in Mint.
Above mentioned discussion was very interesting one. But for me it is "unsolved" state. I am owner of WACOM Intuos4 and try to use it sometimes on Linux system (besides Windows ).
Having been quite long-time MINT KDE user I am sad it will vanish in future so no newer Mint KDE version will appear.
And it is so sad, as well, there is *STILL* no comfortable config-panel for tablet in Mint 18.x (just like v17 had).
I know, there is separate "Wacom-tablet" project, but I wasn't able to use (compile) it to run on my Mint KDE 18.3 Sylvia. And as I checked, not only myself wasn't lucky at this.
I tried PHD21's posted .deb script but got the same result as MAXANDY posted there.
There is something wrong inside (in the code - it says about too old files, etc.) and some warning messages appear.
Hey PHD21, could you make you handy script again? I mean it should be more recent as refers dependencies, file system etc.
Or could you write how to compile the script to .deb to use as latest one as possible (for non-programmers dudes like me ) ?
And I checked out your (?) tablet-finder utility, but it looks like it is unfinished or not working correctly:
I cannot set tablet keys for use, it's just didn't work. The wheel from tablet cannot be used at all.
Best regards to everybody tries to fix these issues !

You are welcome...
Did you try the new wacom tablet package?
It is unlikely with any newer computer that you would need to install a low-latency Linux Kernel, but you can and it is easy to do.
There is a jack meta package "multimedia-jack" in the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" it installs all the basic "jack" sound stuff and there are a lot of other "jack" sound packages in the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)".
yes I just tried the tablet package, awesome to have this panel added to my system settings, although it did not register my intuos pen yet. tablet errors.png
I have to get back on you for this, since it's getting definite tech talk now, let me try a few checkups first.
For now I will close this topic, since I am now certain that KDE is a sure thing.
much thanks for all the insights given, and still to be given
