hanvon-logo.jpg Linux 2.6+ driver for the Hanvon USB Artmaster I, Rollick, Nilox Art Painter Pro and Easy Sketch tablets. Initially tested with kernel version 2.6.38. Also works with older kernels (2.6.32) with a small source code modification.

Aspect Ratio

In order to adjust the aspect ratio of the device, set the coordinate transformation matrix via xinput accordingly. You may need to compute the y-factor yourself. In order to achieve 16:9 I use the following command with my device (y-factor 1.3):

xinput --set-prop "Hanvon Artmaster I tablet" "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" 1 0 0 0 1.3 0 0 0 1

Portrait Mode

In order to change orientation of the device from landscape to portrait mode, you need to adjust the coordinate transformation matrix and inverse one axis. (You may need to recalculate proper x and y coefficients to match actual screen size.)

xinput --set-prop "Hanvon Artmaster I tablet" "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput --set-prop "Hanvon Artmaster I tablet" "Evdev Axis Inversion" 0 1

Wayland Support

There’s no Wayland support. Thanks Nicolas B. for pointing this out. The only workaround is to disable Wayland

vi /etc/gdm/custom.conf
