Blacklisting doesn't persist between restarts

There's a kernal module, drivers for a certain brand of tablets, that I need to blacklist to get the OpenTabletDriver to work. I was able to get it to work with the directions on the site. You can find the driver here. Once I restarted, however and started up the UX, the errors that happen when it's not blacklisted appeared again.

While it functions as intended for the session, here's the console log.

Fish output:

╭─[email protected] in ~
╰─λ echo "blacklist hid_uclogic" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
sudo rmmod hid_uclogic
[sudo] password for stelle: **********
blacklist hid_uclogic

I personally miss here your output of garuda-inxi, as text


Here you go, sorry:

Being honest, I have been lucky to not have to mess with initramfs, but the FAQ for that driver indicates that if modules are reloading on Arch to run:

sudo mkinitcpio -P

I would presume that is after you run the blacklist cmds.
