DIGImend Project Revived To Improve Non-Wacom Tablets Support on Linux

Nikolai Kondrashov rebooted the DIGImend project that brings support for Genius, Huion, Yiynova, and other non-Wacom graphic tablets to Linux users.

After 9 years of working on DIGImend for free and 1 year of hiatus, Nikolai is now relying on both corporate support and recurring donations via Patreon to fund his work on the project.

Don't underestimate his statement that with $1300 per month (pre-tax) he would dedicate mere two hours to the project code each weekend (or buy tablets to hack on). Judging by live hacking sessions he broadcasts on YouTube, two hours get a lot of work done.

Earlier this year he already added support for Ugee's M540 and EX07 tablets, and several days ago support for Ugee 2150 tablet landed. In a thread on Google+ (yes, it's still a thing) he admitted he would also be interested to work on advanced configuration for such tablets in GNOME.
