Ubuntu – HUION H610 Tablet


I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and my HUION h610 tablet works sort of. For example I can move the cursor with the pen and the right-click button works. However nothing else does. Meaning I can't draw at all on any programs, Gimp, Mypaint etc…I went to preferences and enabled the device which Gimp and Mypaint recognize. But again no drawing at all. Also the buttons on the tablet dont work at all.

so when I do uname -a this is returned:
3.13.0-32-generic #57-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jul 15 03:51:08 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Then I also did lsusb and I get:

Then I also tried xinput list:

   Virtual core pointer                     id=2    [master pointer  (3)]

    ↳ Eee PC WMI hotkeys                        id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]

lsmod | grep "huion" returned this:

hid_huion              12719  0 
hid                   106148  3 hid_generic,usbhid,hid_huion

And finally this is the output of cat /boot/config-3.* | grep "HUION":


Please if anyone can help me with this I would really appreciate.

Best Answer

I've just bought this tablet and successfully install its driver inside Ubuntu 14.10.

First you need to remove any existing driver:

sudo rmmod hid-huion

After that, download release 5 or later from the DIGImend project. Untar, change to the download directory, make, and install the driver:

tar xf digimend-kernel-drivers-5.tar.gz
cd digimend-kernel-drivers-5
sudo make install

Your H610 should work now. You will have to run above steps everytime you update the kernel.
