I installed the package but I can't find a way to run it. Please can someone tell me how to do it?

Here is a "python3" compatible PKGBUILD.

Python 3 is now the default. You should probably replace python by python2 in desktop file and in the python main file.

This package should have gksu as a dependency. I suppose most people using this already have gnome but some might not.

I do not know python, but an ugly hack solved the problem for me:

The original line no. 131 of /usr/share/wacom-utility/
newdata = ["Section \"ServerLayout\"\n","EndSection"]
adjusted to create just an empty file:
newdata = ["\n"]

The current configuration does not create /etc/X11/xorg.conf by default, but it prefers to have the snippets in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d instead.

The wacom utility (namely /usr/share/wacom-utility/ tries parse non-existing xorg.conf, to back it up (fails), and installs a new xorg.conf. The trouble is that it has only two lines:
Section "ServerLayout"

And starting GDM fails after reboot!

I assume that after installing the package xf86-input-wacom (which creates also xorg configuration file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf), it is not necessary that wacom-utility touches /etc/X11/xorg.conf at all.

It is still usefull, since it creates $HOME/.wacom_utility, which is run on startup.
