Connecting Huion Drawing/graphics Tablet driver software to USB input.

Post by WinehqAsker253 » Sun Mar 15, 2020 3:45 pm

I tried downloading the drivers for the Huion Hs610 from the Huion website(they don't support Linux): https://www.huion.com/index.php?m=conte ... ype=Driver
And then I opened up the .exe file in Wine.
The program seemed to look pretty normal, but it didn't help or work at all (it didn't detect the tablet that was plugged in), so I assume it must be something to do with It being sandboxed in Wine, and not having access to the USB input or something.

Is there any way to get it to detect input, and get Wine to run Driver software like this? I managed to run the driver software in a Windows 10 VM after setting up the USB input in Virtual Box, but don't know how to get this to work.

You can't install Windows drivers in Wine.
Fortunately, your device is supported by the DIGImend project.

hhmm, when I go to that page, it says only the h610 is supported, and the Hs610 isn't.

It isn't my tablet, so when I buy one for myself I'll have to make sure it supports Linux

Support for the HS610 is brand new:
https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend-ke ... issues/275
https://github.com/DIGImend/digimend-ke ... s/pull/345

You can wait for DIGImend to release version 10 or build the drivers yourself.
