I left Windows over 1 month ago and am using EndeavourOS as my only operating system, so now I’m porting everything to Linux, and today I wanted to test my graphics tablet on EndeavourOS.
The graphics tablet works perfectly as in Windows 10. The problem is that I need to do 2 things that I could do with the Trust software in Windows 10:
1 - Change the actions of buttons #2 and #3 on the pen (I think the tablet and pen don’t have software memory, I’m not sure).
2 - The tablet has a bit of a square aspect ratio, something like 4:3, and my monitor is 1080p with a 16:9 aspect ratio. When I try to draw a circle with the pencil, what appears is an oval.
So I was able to fix this on Windows 10 with the Trust software, as there is an option called “force aspect ratio to monitor” (or something like that), and this allows me to paint in 16:9 on the graphics tablet, because it adjusts the ratio 4:3 to 16:9 (it’s not really 4:3, but it looks like it).
Is there a solution for this in EndeavourOS? I know the tablet is old, and it’s a very bad and cheap brand, but I really don’t want to and I can buy another one right now.
I found this on Google, but since I’m new to Linux I don’t know if it’s a program or something like that for Linux, but my graphics tablet appears there as compatible:
A quick search suggests your tablet should be configurable with xsetwacom. You should be able to assign buttons (at least on the tablet, pen I haven’t tried yet), change aspect ratio and map to a certain monitor region or monitor.
Thank you very much friend, I am really happy to be able to configure my tablet on Linux.
Now I just need to force the aspect ratio to that of my 16:9 monitor. Maybe there is also an option in this software.
Thank you very much friend. I was finally able to change the buttons and put the right click on the #3 button thanks to our friend above. Now I just need to change the aspect ratio to 16:9 so I can draw round circles instead of oval ones.
It’s really amazing that Linux software works even better than Windows software.
I am going to read that article and try to find the solution, I will post the solution here once I have found it.
