    xp-pen g430 drivers

    I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 (before that I used Windows) and I can't get my drawing tablet to work.
    I saw that in Ubuntu there are Wacom drivers pre-installed, but nothing about this tablet.
    I tried installing drivers for windows trough wine, but it does not work.
    Is there is a chance for me to still use this tablet? Because I really don't want to buy a new one.

    Re: xp-pen g430 drivers

    Are you still interested in using it? I don't own the tablet so I cannot try, but an aliexpress review dated 30th of october mentioned they got it to work with this.

    EDIT: I'm still not sure if people read this, but since it was rather annoying to find this out I'm editing my post, just in case. I bought the tablet too and got it to work on Linux Mint 17.3-mate-64bit with the Yakkety 4.8 kernel. It's not ubuntu, but should be sufficiently similar to Trusty for this to work in Ubuntu.

    I got it to work by:
    1. Compiling and installing the wizardpen driver from launchpad (version 0.8.1)

    2. Adding
    Code:
    #XP-pen G430
    ENV{ID_VENDOR_ID}=="28bd", ENV{ID_MODEL_ID}=="0075", ENV{x11_driver}="wizardpen", ENV{ID_MODEL}="stylus"
    to /etc/udev/rules.d/67-xorg-wizardpen.rules, after the last UC-Logic device entry. (the file is generated when installing the driver using make install; I got the modelnumber using cat /proc/bus/input/devices)

    3. Changing /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wizardpen.conf to
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "stylus"
       MatchIsTablet "on"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
       MatchVendor "UGTABLET"
       MatchTag "wizardpen"
       Driver "wizardpen"
       Option          "Device"       "/dev/input/by-id/usb-UGTABLET_TABLET_G3_4x3-event-mouse"
       Option          "TopX"          "518"
       Option          "TopY"          "735"
       Option          "BottomX"       "32767"
       Option          "BottomY"       "32767"
    EndSection
    Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "wizardpen ignore mouse dev"
       MatchIsTablet "on"
       MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/by-id/usb-UGTABLET_TABLET_G3_4x3-event-mouse"
       MatchVendor "UC-LOGIC|KYE Systems|Ace Cad|WALTOP|Waltop|UGTABLET"
       Driver ""
    EndSection
    Again, most of this is a copy-paste from what I linked earlier, except the "/dev/input/by-id/usb-UGTABLET_TABLET_G3_4x3-event-mouse" part, which I got from cat /proc/bus/input/devices.
    (file also generated when installing the driver, I commented out the default settings instead of removing it, but that shouldn't matter).

    I hope this helps someone, and otherwise at least I will know where to find this information next time.

    Thanks for the info!

    Just in case someone is having issues compiling Wizardpen, here is a detailed guide: https://digimend.github.io/support/h...ers/wizardpen/

    Re: xp-pen g430 drivers

    I wrote the guys at XP-pen forwarding them this post and asking for official linux support. They kindly answered:

    "Thanks so much, it is very important for us. Actually, we also start developing linux driver.
    When I got your mail, I also passed to our Engineer, it is very hopeful for us.
    Thanks and Best Regards,
    XP-Pen Team"

    Hi,

    I actually run Manjaro but since this is the first result you get when you searched "xp-pen g430 linux", I figured I'd post this here.

    I had trouble getting WizardPen to work so I decided to debug the issue using https://digimend.github.io/support/h...ating_failure/ and it turns out the kernel driver works but the buttons are mapped wrong. It looks like someone fixed the issue for the G540 which also solved the problem for the G430: https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend...f381f9be0f7908

    This fix will eventually be mainlined into the linux kernel so that it works out of the box but in the meantime, you can compile and install the digimend-kernel-drivers to get this tablet to work.

    git clone https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend-kernel-drivers.git
    cd digimend-kernel-drivers
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo rmmod hid-kye
    sudo rmmod hid-uclogic
    sudo rmmod hid-huion

    Reconnect the tablet or reboot and it should work.

    One thing I should add to the above is that you'll need git, a compiler (such as clang or gcc) and the kernel headers installed.

    I don't know why but after installing the digimend-kernel-drivers when I plug the tablet the system freezes and closes the session...

    Re: xp-pen g430 drivers

    can confirm PinkShinyRose 's directions work fine in ubuntu 16.04, and also in fedora 25 (though compiling was harder, i'm kind of a newbie)
    THANKS!
    ...note that for allowing pressure sensitivity in Gimp you must configure inputs, setting UGTABLET to "screen" mode... tried to use in Krita, but there is no pressure (nor settings visible) + buggy behavior

    Using the digimend driver as you described works for me in ubuntu-mate 17.04 (which didn't include the hid-uclogic module in the first place).

    By now I first installed ubuntu-mate 16.10, but after upgrading to ubuntu-mate 17.04 wizardpen no longer worked. It was removed upon upgrading, and upon reinstalling as I did previously, my session crashed whenever I plugged in my tablet (upon plugging in I got a flickering black screen until I remove, and after the first flicker I was back at the login screen, if I left it in for a few seconds the system would freeze entirely).

    Re: xp-pen g430 drivers

    i asked them when they will publish driver,

    >> Hi, Do you know when are you porting 22" arstist tablet driver to linux paradise world ?

    >> Dear Sir,Sorry, XP-Pen doesn’t developer the Lunix drvier, so please use it on Windows or Mac system.
    Thanks and Best Regards,
    XP-Pen Team


    HAHAHAHAHAH. he **** my day ! i dunno what s happens during this 4 month but they change litterally opinion about driver strategy.

    i didnt know it was hard to produce driver for tablet. sure is not. they should give us something . . . . choose our resolution depends of tablet wehave, and a pen calibrate, that's it. no need button.

    I am very disappointed. What we can do ??? i am sad
