Unfortunately you're right. It did work *once*: I changed the path to 
Desktop1, then recreated an empty Desktop, logged out, logged in Gnome, and 
it worked. But this morning Gnome had adapted and was using Desktop1.

Obviously the paths in Control are only a way to edit .config/userdiers.dirs

I'll give it a try. On the downside it means doubling lots of data stored in 
the hidden directories, having backup files at different places 
(LibreOffice)...  But if I really use Gnome only for the touchscreen stuff, 
it may do.

Tried that - KDE knows *nothing* about the touchscreen. Only Gnome has the 
Wacom setup, and it 's strictly liked to gnome (gnome-control-center wacom). 
I tried to lauch it from TDE, it loads but the calibrate button is grayed out 
and "Adjust display resolution" returns "Could not get screen information".

I'll also take a look at Dave's suggestion. I probably have to test all these 
possibilities "in the field" and find out which works best for me.

Thank you all!
