Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

info command doesn't work. But dump and convert work perfect.

% m210 info
m210: failed to get information: response waiting timeouted
error: info failed

The pen is Ritmix DP-205BT.

% lsusb | grep Peg
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 0e20:0101 Pegasus Technologies Ltd. NoteTaker

P.S. By the way I added ArchLinux package for AUR for your m210 package: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=60332

Hi and thanks for reporting this.

Is `m210 info?` failing constantly or just sometimes?

It should not be a device incompatibility problem, since the error message indicates that the device is not sending any report when queried for general information..

Changed in m210:
importance: Undecided → Medium
milestone: none → 0.9
assignee: nobody → Tuomas Jorma Juhani Räsänen (tuomasjjrasanen)
status: New → Incomplete

had the same issue on a SilverCrest DGP 1000-R

Dump and convert did work though.
After some debugging found the solution - changing the 3 byte from 0x28 to 0x42, here the patch:

Thanks Gunther! I'll add that to model-specific quirks.
