I have finally received the tablet.
It's twice as large as the wacom I used to have and for 2/3 the price.
But I am still marvelling it inside the box right now so procrastinating on plugging in and trying it out.

I'm curious to know how it works for you.
Quickly try it out please.

I plugged it in and it partially works because I am on Linux.
I have looked at some info online about how to get it work fully for linux but haven't been successful.
So I'll save it for another time maybe tomorrow or the next day to try to get it working fully.

I would like to know how you get on T, if it's fully compatible with Gimp and such like.

So after a lot of trial and error this is what I did to successfully have everything set up on Linux (Ubuntu) for the HUION 610Pro Tablet (at least for me anyways somethings might have changed I am not sure why the complete guide didn't work for me).

I followed the complete guide here (2nd answer)
except instead of xf86-input-wacom, for Ubuntu it's xserver-xorg-input-wacom (I just installed using sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wacom)
but when I ran xsetwacom --list i got nothing.
So I looked and found this.
What's important for me was the lsusb command.
I unplugged my tablet and ran lsusb, then plugged it in and ran lsusb command to see what was actually added
and the output I got was

Code: Select all

tim@tim-HP-Pavilion-dv4-Notebook-PC:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 04f2:b17e Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd 
Bus 002 Device 015: ID 256c:006e  
Bus 002 Device 017: ID 046d:c064 Logitech, Inc. M110 corded optical mouse (M-B0001)
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
I notice the 2nd entry was what was added when I plugged in my tablet so made note of the address.
then in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf (file)
I added this entry on top

Code: Select all

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Wacom USB tablet class"
        MatchUSBID "256c:*"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        #MatchIsTablet "true"
        Driver "wacom"
EndSection
Notice the MatchUSBID "256c:*" is a wildcard match with my USD ID given from the lsusb command.
restarted or logout and log back in to Ubuntu.
And then did a xsetwacom --list and i got this

Code: Select all

tim@tim-HP-Pavilion-dv4-Notebook-PC:~$ xsetwacom --list
HID 256c:006e Pen stylus        	id: 11	type: STYLUS    
HID 256c:006e Pad pad           	id: 12	type: PAD
instead of the below (mentioned in the complete guide from above)

Code: Select all

HUION PenTablet Pad pad id: 13 type: PAD
HUION PenTablet Pen stylus id: 14 type: STYLUS
I figured that's fine and closer to what i had from before which showed nothing so I continued on to configure buttons and pressureCurve

so instead of following exactly like the guide which said

Code: Select all

xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 1 "key +ctrl +z -z -ctrl"
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 2 “key e”
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 3 "key +ctrl"
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 8 "key +shift"
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 9 "key +ctrl +  -ctrl"
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 10 "key +ctrl -  -ctrl"
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 11 "key b"
xsetwacom --set "HUION PenTablet Pad pad" Button 12 "key space"
xsetwacom --set 'HUION PenTablet Pen stylus' PressureCurve "5 10 90 95"
what I used was below to match my xsetwacom --list entries. I put the below in a file called wacom.sh (then chmod +x wacom.sh and then executed it by using ./wacom.sh) (I set the values with GIMP in mind except for button 12 which I don't know what it's supposed to do so left it as is like the guide, If you want to set it for different program being different keys you can just create any .sh file and run that whenever you want to use that program). The guide also shows you how to set the buttons on the Stylus pen if you wish but I didn't bother as the default seem to work okay for me.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 1 "key +ctrl +z -z -ctrl"
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 2 "key +shift +e -e -shift"
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 3 "key p"
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 8 "key +"
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 9 "key -"
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 10 "key ]"
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 11 "key ["
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pad pad' Button 12 "key p"
#not sure about Button 12 setting to p.
xsetwacom --set 'HID 256c:006e Pen stylus' PressureCurve "5 10 90 95"
Everything ran fine with no errors, I then tested buttons and they worked as intended. But pressure sensitivity still did not work.
Then I read that from the complete guide that says depending on the app you're using, you'll have to change settings inside them.
Then i looked at http://digimend.github.io/support/ and click on GIMP to go to http://digimend.github.io/support/howto/apps/gimp/ and there it says to go to Edit/Input Devices choose the pen Stylus and set the mode to Screen. You play around with the curves for pressure there too. So after setting mode to Screen my tablet pressure sensitivity is working so I guess that's all there is to it.
