Map Wacom tablet to a single display

How to map a graphics tablet to a single display in a multi-monitor setup in Linux

Wacom Intuos graphics tablet

I have a Wacom Intuos graphics tablet for my occasional drawing and signing. By default, the tablet area is mapped to the whole screen area, making it almost unusable if you are using two or more monitors, as your drawing application of choice (Krita in my case) usually resides in one display only. Well, turns out there’s a very easy way to map the tablet to a single display in Linux with xinput.
