Tech help request:

I have a Monoprice drawing tablet and I'm using Ubuntu 18 with a Gnome-based GUI. Other than this issue it works fine.

WITHOUT CHANGING ANY OF THE ABOVE:

The default is tablet mode (the tablet corresponds directly to the screen) and I want to use it in mouse mode (the cursor doesn't move when I pick up and move the pen) but can't work out how to change that setting.

Settings > Devices > Wacom Tablet doesn't see the tablet.

Ideas?

Update: Solved!

I had to use xinput to set the *stylus*'s mode to RELATIVE instead of ABSOLUTE. Having done that it works exactly like I expect it to.

Thanks @dev_ponies and everyone else who chimed in!
