Can wine use linux device drivers?

Post by scarfacehi » Fri May 22, 2020 9:19 am

So, I am aware that Wine can not use Windows hardware drivers in order to communicate with connected hardware, but does it then use linux drivers? For example, if I have a device which runs fine on my linux machine with all drivers installed, is there a reason Wine can not use those same drivers to run that device through a windows executable? And if there is a way to do this, how is it done?
