[SOLVED] How to reset touch screen calibration in Gnome?

I have Acer Spin 5 with touch screen and stylus.
In settings in Wacom Tablet I did calibration.

There were 4 points to touch on the screen.
I did this and now it is messed up.
When I touch the center of the screen with the stylus, the cursor appears in the bottom right corner.

I tried to recalibrate the screen but with no success.

Wanted to reset it in dconf but I wasn't able to find the proper setting

Re: [SOLVED] How to reset touch screen calibration in Gnome?

I was able to achieve that with:

dconf reset -f /org/gnome/
dconf reset -f /org/gtk/

Not a perfect solution because It cleared every setting in my system.

Re: [SOLVED] How to reset touch screen calibration in Gnome?

I just had the same problem and found the relevant dconf key.

For every tablet there is a directory in ''/org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/tablets/":

dconf list /org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/tablets/

You just need to reset the "area" key in the tablet's directory (replace {id} with the tablet's directory name):

dconf reset -f /org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/tablets/{id}/area

Thanks
Not sure if I will need this in the future but it always good to know
