However, FW update is only supported in Windows. While I have some 30+ computers around here, we don't have any windows machines (nor licenses, FWIW).
Normal serial/USB units like mounts, hand controllers are usually updatable by running the software in wine, but this fails for HID devices like the EAF. There really should be an option for FW updates for users that don't have Windows.
My appreciation for the EAF (which is a very nice unit) has substantially dropped due to this
Please do consider making FW update software available for Linux and Mac as well. Many thanks in advance.
I know. This is why I opened the feature request.
What is technically restricting the FW update to Windows, when the unit has working support for Mac&Linux?
(for Linux, support via fwupd would really be cool...)
And thanks very much for passing on our request to the developers! I sincerely hope they will work on this.
As Wouter mentions, it's also a question of having a License for it. Thanks for notifying the devs - maybe they could also consider some bootable USB-stick image as updater? Though native versions definitely would be nicer.
