Tablet setup in Wine

NOTE: The DIGImend project maintainer is leaving the project in November 2016. Currently no work on supporting new tablets is done, and user support is done by community only. Replacement maintainers are welcome.

Wine (originally an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD.

About Wine

In this tutorial you can learn how to setup your tablet, which uses the evdev driver, working in this software.

Wine 1.5

The Wine team started to work on the 1.5 develpment release in March 2012. This version is the latest development version wich is currently in active development.

Tablet setup

This sofware is not compatible with the evdev driver, so the pen’s pressure will not affect anything.

This bug has been reported to the Wine bugtracker here. In the comments of that bug you can find some tips how to make the software evdev-compatible. You can build a corrected Wine for yourself, but that modification can make Wine unstable, so use those tips at your own risk.

If you were brave enough to have made Wine evdev compatible by patching and compiling the source code yourself, you will not need to do any device configuration. Your pen should just work in Wine.

More information

You can find more information about Wine on the official website of the software.
