Downloaded it, the display of the tablet has constantly been working. It just doesn’t respond to pen input

Here’s how I got my Huion H430p and HS611 to work:

  1. Install drivers (the Wacom drivers will do the job)
    sudo pacman -S xf86-input-wacom

  2. Plug in and get device ID, e.g. 256c:006d
    lsusb

  3. Generate a .conf file with your device ID
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-tablet.conf

Section "InputClass"
   Identifier "Tablet"
   Driver "wacom"
   MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
   MatchUSBID "256c:006d"
EndSection
  1. Relogin/restart. Your tablet should now have pressure sensitive pen input.

If you want to define certain actions to the buttons, the following should get you going. My keybindings are for an application called xournal++.

xsetwacom --list devices

  • H430p: define button settings
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet Pad pad" Button 1 "key +ctrl +shift p"
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet Pad pad" Button 2 "key +ctrl +shift a"
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet Pad pad" Button 3 "key +ctrl +shift e"
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet Pad pad" Button 8 "key +ctrl z"
  • HS611: define and load button settings
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 1 "key +ctrl +shift p"	# pen
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 2 "key +ctrl +shift e"	# eraser
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 3 "key +ctrl +shift a"	# hand
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 8 "key +ctrl plus"		# zoom in
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 9 "key +ctrl minus"		# zoom out

xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 10 "key +ctrl z"		# undo
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 11 "key +ctrl d"		# new page after
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 12 "key +ctrl 6"		# draw line
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 13 "key f11"			# fullscreen
xsetwacom --set "HUION Huion Tablet_HS611 Pad pad" Button 14 "key f12"			# show sidebar

If you need to map the tablet to a specific size or screen position I could also help out.
