Greetings, EndeavourOS Community!

In this quick guide, we’ll walk you through an effortless solution to resolve any Wacom tablet issues you may encounter on your EndeavourOS Budgie setup. Unlike Windows or macOS, Linux typically doesn’t require additional drivers for Wacom tablets. However, if you’re facing problems with button configurations or tablet recognition within the Budgie Control Center, we have the solution for you.

Follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Open a terminal window.

Step 2: Enter the following command to install the necessary package:

sudo pacman -S xf86-input-wacom

Step 3: To ensure optimal tablet functionality, use an AUR helper like “yay.” If you haven’t installed “yay” yet, you can do so by searching on Arch Linux forum.

Step 4: Once you have “yay” installed, run the following command to install the “input-wacom-dkms” package:

yay -S input-wacom-dkms

Step 5: After the installation is complete, reboot your system.

Voila! Your Wacom tablet should now be recognized and fully functional for all your artistic endeavors. Enjoy creating your digital masterpieces without any hassles.

If you encounter any issues or have further questions, feel free to ask for assistance on the EndeavourOS forum. Happy drawing!
