No Device Detected in Wacom Applet on Ubuntu

wacom applet in ubuntu settings says no device detected but the device works (can’t access device settings)

lenovo, ideapad 110, amd a6

MyPaint v1.2

ubuntu 16.04

gnome 4

xsetwacom --list
Wacom Intuos S 2 Pen stylus id: 13 type: STYLUS
Wacom Intuos S 2 Pad pad id: 14 type: PAD

the wacom applet in the settings panel says no device detected so even though it functions I can’t acess the properties through the applet.

run on a terminal:
