Pen access for the Surface Pro

I installed Garuda on my Surface Pro and I love it. However the pen no longer works neither does the touch access. Is there a way to get this working again?

Hi there, welcome to forums.

As you didn't tell the version of your surface pro, I randomly put the answer for surface pro 3 from Archwiki

Tuning the Pen

The pen buttons might not work out of the box. Install the xf86-input-wacom package and comment the MatchIsTablet section in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf. Furthermore add 1B96:1B05 Pen in the MatchProduct line of N-Trig in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf. Note that the purple bluetooth button is recognized but able to be bound to an action.
