Hi Poilrouge,

I know that your were probably a "simple" user. The remark about the functionalities was also for the "normal" users, just to make them be aware of differences with the "full" version. The request for the name change was just because when Xp-pen will release its final version, your folder name will become obsolete. And in case of changes made into this folder, they will be lost.

I hope the linux drivers will soon be full featured. We really miss pen presure settings.

And, above all, Thanks for your work. It helped me setting up my new xp-pen tablet.

Hey laurentO! Thanks for the heads up on the driver update.

Just to make sure that we're on the same page, I'm just a user, like you, and in not way linked, tied, or affiliated to xp-pen and their product or software. Therefor, I have, to my knowledge, zero capability regarding the driver functionalities or performance.

I just wanted a way to better integrate the driver into my Arch system and share my intall script tweaks via the AUR. Yes, I agree with you regarding the lack functionalities and perfs comparing to the windows the version but, then again, I don't believe I can do anything about it.

As for the package name, I want to respect what I think is the providers intent. Meaning that, as long as xp-pen consider this driver to be a 'beta' so much so to put it in the name of there downloadable archives, I'd rather keep it as is. I've removed the 'beta' from the desktop file and the CLI command link though.

The driver runs well, even if it has less functionalities the windows one. Pen pressure is really low and can not be set by the GUI windows settings.

Could it be possible to remove "-beta-driver" from the installation folder name ?
