Please don't flag this as out of date when there are no upstream updates. I'm not the maintainer of the project, only this packaging. If you have a newer tablet this is not detecting it's because the upstream project isn't being maintained, this should still work for many older tablets circa when it was released.

Is this useful in 2020? Last timestamp update on launchpad was 2011 and can't find a gitlab/hub repo of it. Didn't detect any of my newer Wacoms like Cintiq Pro 32.

@Zeioth Arch packages cannot install anything to your $HOME directory! What it this does to is provide a wacom-utily.desktop file which creates a launcher entry in most DE's menus. That's your easy way to run it without knowing the command.

It would be super nice to put a script named 'wacom-utility' with this content on ~/.local/bin

python2 /usr/share/wacom-utility/

So people can run it easily. It took me a while to figure out.

On MATE, this doesn't appear in the control panel. Please remove the "OnlyShowIn" line in the "wacom-utility.desktop" file. I also removed the "en_CA" lines, as they have the same contents from before, and the empty/undefined "GenericName".

The shebang in the script should be updated to "python2" instead of "python" (it's a simple "sed -i 1s/$/2/" in the PKGBUILD "build" step). This way, that script itself is a valid executable.

I missed a wacom-utility or a wacom_utility script at /usr/bin. I was quite surprised when I saw everything being installed on /usr/share. The scripts clearly imports themselves, but the "os.chdir(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(sys.argv[0])))" only happens after importing the internal modules, so it does nothing, since the script only works when the current working directory is already /usr/share/wacom-utility. Making a minimal with an entry point would create that desired scripts and fix that path workaround, but it requires changes in the code. Perhaps it's easier to just add a shell script that changes the directory and calls the Python script.

This code looks for a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Probably that should be replaced by a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-wacom.conf file (with "sed s:/etc/X11/xorg.conf:\&.d/01-wacom.conf:g" in the "build" section), or something like that. I'm not sure if that's enough, actually I don't even know what does this GUI have to do with the xorg.conf.

Unfortunately, as it seems, this GUI doesn't work with Intuos Art (056a:033c, CTH-490), so I can't use it anyway. =/

To anyone using xorg.conf.d, this seems to break X. It'll add a xorg.conf file in /etc/X11 containing:
Section "ServerLayout"

I assume it's trying to append it to a non-existent xorg.conf file.
