My name is Nikolai Kondrashov and I'm a geek who loves tinkering with electronics, computers, and software. I'm the founder and maintainer of the DIGImend project, which aims to improve Linux support for generic graphics tablets. Those not made by Wacom and well-supported, but the ones made by various companies in the East, such as Genius, Huion, Ugee, Yiynova, and many others.

The project is turning 10 years old soon, and in that time managed to produce drivers for more than 40 tablets and several supporting tools.

By pledging $3 per month or more you get to say "Thanks!" for the work I did on DIGImend so far, and help me focus on future work. You get access to the Patreon news feed.
Thank you very much!

Maybe you're really happy your tablet finally works, or you got a troublesome issue resolved, or you're just glad that there is somebody trying to make affordable tablets work on Linux. Anyway, by pledging $5 per month or more you get to say "Thank you very much!" and let me know my work is needed. You also get the DIGImend supporter stickers.

By pledging $15 per month or more you get a guarantee to receive responses to your questions on GitHub from me, within 24 hours. In addition to the rewards of lower tiers, you get to join a monthly hangout with yours truly, ask questions and discuss your concerns with me and other patrons, face-to-face. However, this doesn't mean I will always be able to help you, or make a driver for you.

You have a project involving Linux and non-Wacom graphics tablets, or you have multiple workstations using them, and you would like to receive some guaranteed support. Pledge $120 per month or more, and get up to three issues fixed or one minor feature implemented, and have a personal 15-minute hangout with me, each month. That is in addition to all the other rewards.


However, if you would like to get a driver developed for you, contact me directly via [email protected], and we'll discuss your particular case, the device in question, the extent of the work required, and the appropriate fee.

Goals
$140 of $1,300 per month
With $1300 per month (subject to taxation) I get to dedicate two hours to the project code each weekend, or buy several basic, a couple advanced, or one expensive tablet each month.

Thus each month I can make a couple drivers for simpler tablets, make one improvement to the Linux input stack, or make one or two complicated or expensive tablets supported every two months.
