    Question Graphic Tablet Ubuntu 20.04(help needed)

    Hello there, I am new Ubuntu user. I switched from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 20.04 for stability and performance.
    I work(hobby) in Unity3D and usually draw my sprites via graphic tablet. But after i switched from windows to Ubuntu , i noticed my tablet doesn't work properly its not a Wacom Tablet its 10moons 1060Plus Graphic Tablet 10x6 Inch Digital Drawing (Gotop Information Inc. [T501] Driver Inside Tablet). Generaly tablet kinda works ,pressure sensitivity works but its only mapping half of my tablet and when i draw circle its eclipse it feels like on X axis pen is moving easily and on Y axis it moves kinda slow... Half of my tablet is the entire screen. I tried to google some fixes how can i modify mapping space but i only found commands for wacom tablets.

    When i type xinput in terminal i can see under Virtual core pointer there are
    SZ PING-IT INC. [T501] Driver Inside Tablet Mouse id=17 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ SZ PING-IT INC. [T501] Driver Inside Tablet Consumer Control id=24 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ SEM USB Keyboard Consumer Control id=28 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ SZ PING-IT INC. [T501] Driver Inside Tablet Pen (0) id=30 [slave pointer (2)]

    i found this driver on github
    https://github.com/DIGImend/10moons-tools does anyone know step by step how to install the driver? How do i Build with autoreconf -i -f && configure && make.?
    I would really appreciate any help i can get.

    Needs identification via 'lsusb' first
    Also grab error (red line) or warning (yellow line) about that tablet inside 'journalctl -b' terminal output.

    System Settings have to find/identify this hardware too.

    I remember a Ubuntu member who helped to solve intricate issues of graphic tablets for all those who sought help. His username is Favux. He is inactive now. You may wake him by sending a personal message(If you are lucky).
    By the way, I feel the solution might be editing the X and Y coordinates in the configuration file.

    Thank you for replying i sent him a pm...
    Yeah i feel by editing x and y coordinates that might be the solution only if i knew where is that configuration file or if i knew how to locate it. xD

    Hi
    I'm not sure about this solution, but you may try changing the 'scale' to the size of the screen you have and give a try.

    in my original post there is github link with the driver for setting up the tablet. but actually i don't know how to install it.

    here is the read-me file

    10moons-tools

    10moons-tools is a collection of tools for enabling and inspecting 10moons tablets. So far it has only one tool: 10moons-probe.
    Build with autoreconf -i -f && configure && make.
    10moons-probe is a quick and dirty tool for enabling full functionality of 10moons tablets (however much there is).
    Execute like this:
    sudo ./10moons-probe <BUS> <DEV>
    Where <BUS> is a USB bus number, and <DEV> is a device address.
    So, if your tablet was represented by this line in the lsusb output:
    Bus 002 Device 038: ID 08f2:6811 Gotop Information Inc.
    You can run 10moons-probe like this:
    sudo ./10moons-probe 2 38


    how should i install this anyone have a clue only thing i do know is to type last command sudo ./10moons-probe 2 38 but thats the last step ?

    Hmmm
    Let us give a try!
    Download the zip files by clicking the 'code' button. Extract it to your home folder. Enable all the files as 'executable'.
    Open the extracted folder in terminal (right click and select 'open in terminal').
    Execute the command
    Code:
    autoreconf -i -f && configure && make
    and
    Code:
    sudo ./10moons-probe <BUS> <DEV>
    .
    Hope you know the BUS and DEV.
    and finally execute the last command.
    Restart the machine.
    It will work if you are lucky!!!
    Best wishes!

    drpjkurian thank you for all the help... i asked the developer of that stuff and he said that that is not a driver ...it's a development tool.


    i found this also this should be some kinda driver, i tried to install it but it failed
    https://github.com/alex-s-v/10moons-driver
    i installed all the req
    pyusb==1.0.2
    PyYAML==5.2
    evdev==1.2.0

    and when i run
    sudo python driver.py it said

    File "driver.py", line 6, in <module>from evdev import UInput, ecodes, AbsInfoModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'evdev'
