initial ebuild

The following ebuild provides drivers for various non-wacom graphic tablets, many of which are produced by Huion.

This is an initial ebuild, i have not yet tested building a specific version of the driver only -9999. It runs fine with my device.

I have no clue where this should go in portage categories, so I have no suggestions here.

one note: no KEYWORDS for 9999.
Comment 2 Marcin Kowalski 2020-08-25 07:18:03 UTC
there are still 2 things i have to fix.

- release tarball doesn't work, plenty of sandbox violations.
- package builds against current kernel, not one linked at /usr/src/linux

I'll look into this later.

+1 I could need this to work too

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 256c:006d HUION Huion Tablet_H640P

it works with Gentoo's derivative Calculate-linux

but I can't find what to do to make it work with my gentoo

after adding uclogic HID support in kernel it works fine
still need to figure how to configure it (restrict its area of effect top one of the two screens)

Hi David! You can try this utility to map your tablet to proper screen -

The utility is generally intended to work with Wacom tablets, but it also works with some non-Wacom tablets too (see here for details -
