USB passthrough to wine

Post by nikitaruso » Fri Apr 30, 2021 7:26 am

Hello.
Good morning, I need to connect usb directly to wine. It is for a programmer's software that we use at work. Is there any possibility?

Hi everyone, I've been testing but can't get it to work so far.
I have edited the registry and given permissions, but so far nothing.

Does it require a windows driver for the USB device?

yes, I have installed it and I have compared the registry in windows, I have created a registry entry for the device and I have installed the drivers

I'm also interested in this although it's for a different device.
I saw that a recent release of Wine added USB support through a libusb-based driver but I can't find any information if it's something that should just work or if it requires some manipulations and/or has some limitations.
Does anyone here knows how this should work? I guess it's what the OP needs also

Is this a USB device that is supposed to look like a serial device?

I did a little research and it appears that is a usb to parallel adapter. I have no experience with it, but would suspect it needs some sort of driver on the linux side of things for this to work.

I did find this but it is a few years old: https://github.com/zoobab/ch341-parport
