You can follow this guide here: as it details the setup of the pressure curve as follows:

gksudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf

Edit it so it looks like the following with your new Pressure settings:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Wacom class"
    MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "wacom"
    Option        "PressCurve"    "50,0,100,50"
    Option        "Threshold"     "60"

Save and unplug and re-plug your device.
