Techies out there…
A little side project of mine, writing a linux driver for this Taiwanese device:
Device supports windows only out of the box. Hooked it up to a recent linux kernel, can read and parse out hid reports from it, however it uses it’s own proprietary format for the hid report payload. And that payload is weird, the coordinate system seems to be divided up into four quadrants per axis, can’t really make head or tail of it. I was hoping it would be like a touchpad, where you just get x and y coordinates back.
So basically I have gotten nowhere.
Would love to hear from anyone who has experience with these handwriting tools on the hardware or software side.
Cold emails into Penpower have predictably turned up no response.
What’s in it for you, say for example you are a previous employee of Penpower? Bragging rights basically, as we will get our code upstreamed into the kernel. Hope to hear, well, anything really…
