Trouble detecting ISKN Slate

Solved!
Posted in General by Alan Gan Mon May 23 2016 20:03:05 GMT+0000 (UTC)·8·Viewed 645 times

Hello, I was running through the VS MagicBeep guide in the Documentation, but when I ran the program, I could not manage to connect the Slate to the application. The only message I get is the "Slate could not connect!" The tablet is plugged in via USB and I've set it to the USB/Bluetooth mode. Is there a step I might be missing? Any drivers that I might need to install or system requirements?

To add:
On my first two runs, I was prompted to unplug and plug in the Slate. No prompt has appeared after those first two.

Hi Alan,

You were right about drivers, the Slate need them.
You will find them here: http://app.iskn.co/Drivers/Slate_Drivers_Setup.exe

Happy coding :)

I am currently struggling to connect the slate on linux. Is there also a driver needed? if so, where can it be obtained?

Hi,

On Linux maybe the problem is you don't have the right to open the com port.
You can open a terminal and type this to grant you this permission :

sudo adduser YOUR_USER_NAME dialout

And after that you should be good :)

Thanks a lot. Since I am using an Arch based system it was

gpasswd -a <user> uucp

instead (different cmdline tool and different group)
but it solved the issue. So I apparently managed to connect to the Slate with an EventListener written in rust-lang

Thanks for the help.
