Fedora 26 : using Huion Giano WH1409 graphic tablet .

If you want to use your Huion Giano WH1409 graphic tablet with Fedora 26 then you need to use DKMS kernel.
Let's start. First you need to have a github account to download this kernel.
Use this commands to install the DKMS kernel from digimend.
#dnf install dkms git-core 
#git clone /usr/src/digimend-6
#dkms build digimend/6
#dkms install digimend/6
Now connect the wireless USB dongle and reboot your computer. Take a look at dkms status:
dkms status
If you use VirtualBox then I tested with last version of VirtualBox and works without any settings.
If you want to set your tablet keys then you make custom X11 rules .
First is need to go to this folder: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/.
Now create 50-huion.conf file and use the configuration tool xsetwacom.
I don't make this settings because the tablet work's good with inkscape software.
