Krita dual monitor setup causes tablet offset

I'm having a bit of an issue using Krita on my Fedora KDE installation. I'm using dual 4K monitors so I have enabled display scaling for both monitors in order to increase the UI size. When I try to draw using my Wacom tablet in Krita, there is an offset which makes drawing extremely difficult. I did not encounter this offset when using other applications such as Blender and GIMP, so I don't know why I'm only having this issue with Krita.

I have followed these these instructions for a possible fix, but the solution seems to only apply to Windows, and trying it on Fedora gave me no screen resolution dialog. I have also tried disabling my 2nd monitor and using only one monitor to see if it fixes the tablet offset issue, and to my my surprise, it did! but I consider this only a temporary solution since I need to use both monitors in the end.

Here is some more information about my setup:
Krita version: 4.1.7 (64-bit)
OS: Fedora 29 (KDE)
Tablet: Wacom PTH660

Any other possible solutions for my issue would be greatly appreciated.

That dialog is windows-only and only exists because Qt and Wacom Wintab drivers often disagree on the screen dimensions. You could try the latest nightly appimage build, which uses a newer version of Qt with updated and fixed tablet support: https://binary-factory.kde.org/job/Krit ... age_Build/

I have tried the nightly appimage that you linked to, and I'm glad to say that my Wacom tablet offset issue has been fixed, and that Krita is working perfectly fine without any further configuration from my part.

Thank you!
