I am using Gaomon PD1560 tablet monitor under Linux, tried digimend drivers but still have some problems with recognizing device. Is There any plans developing official Linux drivers? Could you tell, please?

I own a PD1560 and my laptop runs on Linux. I’m looking forward in anticipation for a native Linux driver. Is it any beta driver availble for testing?

Will you likely release a driver soon? I am about to upgrade my tablet, but no Linux support is an absolute deal-breaker for me. I’d like to be able to consider Gaomon. Best wishes.

This did not work for my Gaomon S620. We would really love it if you could release drivers for linux. The S620 works well on Windows. It would be awesome if I could use it on my PC

A pity not to have support for linux almost bought the M10k in aliexpress, but unfortunately I will have to continue with wacom because it is the only one that works without problems but just connect and use.

Please support Linux. I’d like to quit using Windows.

Saw that the dev team has been contacted about developing Linux drivers. Any progress updates on this or a release date estimate? Looking into getting a Gaomon S620 to use on my Ubuntu laptop.

The Gaomons looks to be excellent tablets from what I can tell, but I cannot purchase one until Linux drivers are available in some form. I hope you guys are still working toward this goal. I hope I can support your Linux efforts financially someday. 🙂

M106K (and many other tablets) works on the Linux kernel => 5.1
