Hi I am on ubuntu 19.04 I have the application working via sudo ./networktablet command flawlessly, yet I can make desktop icons for ubuntu, but never had to try with a sudo command or any other command to open an application I am new to linux so confused, after scouring forever looking and trying 10’s of ways I cannot get it to open well it does but as a file to edit in a text editor rather than as a sudo terminal command, I really want gfxtablet incorporated in my custom os so I can open it from an icon but need your help please anyone if you can assist in making the app into a desktop icon for ubuntu would be great.
I had the same symptoms. Try the changes to the code I made in pull request 95. It uses a newer Linux API to register the device, and libinput seems happy with it now, so it works in gimp and inkscape.
