# First, find out the command for your Wacom:xsetwacom --list devices
In this case, the touch is called “Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch Finger touch”
# Then, make Scripts folder to Home:mkdir -p ~/Scripts/Wacom# Make the script:nano ~/Scripts/Wacom/wacom_disable_touch.sh# Write or copy-paste (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Shift+V) the following text in there, but replace the "Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch Finger touch" part with what you have:#!/bin/sh
xsetwacom --set "Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch Finger touch" touch off# Save and close (Ctrl+X, Y, Enter)# Then, give execute permission for it:chmod +x ~/Scripts/Wacom/wacom_disable_touch.sh# You can test the command with:sh ~/Scripts/Wacom/wacom_disable_touch.sh

Create a ‘Wacom Set Screen’ shell script:

# Make Scripts folder to Home, if you haven't already:mkdir -p ~/Scripts/Wacom# Make the script:nano ~/Scripts/Wacom/wacom_set_screen1.sh# Write or copy-paste (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Shift+V) the following text in there, but replace the "Wacom Intuos4 6x9 Pen stylus" part with what you have:#!/bin/sh
xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos4 6x9 Pen stylus" MapToOutput HEAD-0# Save and close (Ctrl+X, Y, Enter)# Then, give execute permission for it:chmod +x ~/Scripts/Wacom/wacom_set_screen1.sh# HEAD-0 is the monitor 1, HEAD-1 is the monitor 2, and so on. You can make more of these scripts depending on how many monitors you have, if you want to be able to switch between them (to use Wacom on monitor 1 or monitor 2).
