Hi folks,

I've been a less-than-part-time Linux user for about 15 years from now and I have been trying to migrate my Dental Office to Linux but I've had no success.
The Digital X-Ray Sensor is the Handy HDR, which is connected via USB to the HandyDentist software.

On wine everything works fine but the image acquisition.

lsusb tells me that my device is this one:

Bus 002 Device 010: ID 04b4:0043 Cypress Semiconductor Corp.

I found some threads where they could link the devices for wine to access them but I think they could because they were serial to USB devices. Anyway those threads are a little old so I figured maybe somebody could help me. I am not an IT guy but I know a few terminal commands.

Thanks in advance.

If this USB device needs a Windows hardware driver to be installed, you will be out of luck.

But some USB serial devices seem to work in wine, please read

For better usb driver support, you may problably better use a virtual environment like VirtualBox or Qemu.
This way all your hardware should work if the used software in a windows one, indeed.

Maybe also ReactOS is far enough long to run in a VirtualBox VM??
I haven't tested it recently...
