OK.. I don't have a wacom connected to the system, but I figured: let's throw that command in the terminal and see what happens ;)

So I downloaded and installed the kernel-driver from this side

Then its:

Code: Select all

$ sudo modinfo wacom

version:        v2.00-0.39.0
srcversion:     2C2B96F2DFD0378D03F7915
This maybe is an option the OP could try.

The input-wacom-dkms from github does not work here, gives errors.

The more I look, the odder the wacom driver thing looks.
I looked up the USB ID for your tablet

Code: Select all

056a:0374 	CTL-4100 	Intuos S
056a:0376 	CTL-4100WL 	Intuos BT S
Neither ID is listed in the code for the 4.5 or 3.17 versions of the driver. Both are listed in the 3.7, 2.38 & 2.30 versions.
The question is, will the 3.7 version build on a 4.15 kernel?

Thanks. Updating the driver did the trick. I used the method at https://linuxwacom.github.io/ rather than https://github.com/cyberang3l/input-wacom-dkms which struck me a more complex. Again your input was helpful. Mark

Hi there, I own a 11.6" IPS Drawing Tablet Monitor XP-PEN Artist 12 . It's a screen tablet like a Cintiq 13HD , and it was around 250 USD when I got it a year ago. it works well . you can draw directly on the Screen .

The screen is fantastic. I had a bit of trouble setting it up, but not much. For some reason my computer didn't recognize it at first. I then reinstalled the driver, changed ports and then it worked.

And again, the screen is fantastic. It's big precise ( Have some parallax ) and it responsive (no drag).
