Speed Editor and/or Editing Keyboard in Linux

PostSat Nov 14, 2020 8:54 pm

Happy owner of Studio, was just about to purchase the Speed Editor when I happened to notice no mention of operating system support anywhere. So I searched online and in this forum and still came up empty.

So I called support... they didn't know for sure but thought it probably was fine... but they would test and get back to me.

The eventual answer was "no, it didn't work".

Asking here for both confirmation and discussion of that. Do they really truly not work in Linux? If so, why isn't it stated anywhere? And if not... why isn't it stated anywhere!? And why on earth wouldn't/couldn't it work? And is there any hope of it changing?

As far as I can tell all other DaVinci control surfaces work fine, by whatever protocol Resolve uses to talk to them. At least some parts of it can talk MIDI, pretty much any Mackie compatible contoller works. (Not even getting into programs that read Midi and translate them to keyboard commands... I've used a Behringer BCF 2000 in Davinci by that method myself.) That leaves what... HID? Nothing special about that in Linux.

So... do they truly not work in Linux, and if so why not? What does lsusb say about it when one is plugged in? What does dmesg show when plugging it in?

To get really elaborate... if ones mounts debugfs, loads the usbmon module, and watches the matching usbmon files while pushing keys or turning the wheel... is there nothing there? Or is there, but Danvci just doesn't try to look for it or use it?

I dunno, just seems crazy that it wouldn't or couldn't work in Linux. I was really excited about it and really wanted the Speed Editor. It was already in my cart at B&H for crying out loud, when I thought I better check first. :)

Thank you in advance for any answers, help or comments.

Thanks for finding this out; that would seem to be really rather poor. Does the full sized editor keyboard work in linux ? Normally i'd let a company off for ignoring Linux support, but when the software works there naively it's pretty unforgivable, and doubly so to not mention it.

I just bought a Studio license with the promo with the free Speed Editor.
I only use Resolve in Linux.
I had other reasons for the Studio license, so if the Speed Editor doesn't work for me I'll probably just sell it after the promo is over.
I'll do some experimenting like you suggest. (Once the Speed Editor arrives, currently backordered.)
I can't imagine it's doing anything that fancy, it's just USB or Bluetooth.

The Tech Spec page for the Speed Editor doesn't list Linux, but then again none of the hardware pages list Linux.

Well, I can't (or don't want to) say I've found this out until hearing officially from Black magic here.

Yes, that is what support said after trying it out... but it was also after they'd said they thought it would work fine. I don't know any details about what testing they did to try it.

All of it seems just fuzzy enough that it would be really nice to get some sort of definitive statement or explanation here.

yea. It would seem unlikely as normally keyboards are fairly well supported in linux and there's decent tooling around them for debugging and such, but afaik (not sure as i don't have one) i'm of the understanding that it isn't remapable and mostly only works on the cut page, which implies it maybe isn't acting as a normal keyboard and is possibly doing something a little more propriety, so it's plausible that it wouldn't work. Till now i'd assumed it would given they support the OS with the software. Agreed it'd be good to get an official word though.

That's the part that concerns me a bit...

If it is just a keyboard sending HID style keyboard commands over USB & bluetooth, it should "just work". But it would also be re-mappable and usable in anything (anything that already has the ability to map/bind commands to keys, that is), which they are saying it is not. So... it probably isn't speaking those protocols.

Same goes for MIDI... if under the hood it was actually using CC commands, one could see what they were, and make use of them. But they say it can't, so it probably isn't.

That leaves a proprietary to BlackMagic protocol. Which is fine, nothing wrong with that. Slight bummer I wouldn't also be able to use it for Harrison Mixbus, etc, but it isn't exactly the ideal design for that sort of use anyway, no biggie. It is meant for editing in Resolve, and that's all I really want it for. But it means we're dependent on them to make it work in Resolve, so if they don't make it work on one of their 3 advertised platforms... I guess we're SOL? But that's also why it doesn't make sense that it wouldn't work, as their other proprietary devices do work on linux. It makes little enough sense that it is tempting to assume the support staff must have been wrong, and some small correctable issue got in their way. And to order it anyway and give it a go.

But I don't want to do that if they already know for sure that it won't, and I'll be stuck using it as a paperweight. I do have 3 Macs here, but even the best of them isn't suitable as a video editing machine (debatable whether it'd run Resolve at all). I do have and use Windows regularly/professionally, but only remotely over RDP and locally as VMs on my actual workstation... I can't edit with those. My studio workstation was built to be a workhorse for all 3 fields I do... systems & db admin, audio production, and video editing. It's a Threadripper 1950X with 64GB RAM, an RTX 2070 Super, a 43" 4K main screen and often/optionally two 22" side screens, Razer & IBM M series keyboards, Yamaha studio monitors, etc, etc. I'm not going to limp along editing on a 2012 non-retina Macbook pro while this thing sits idle. (The last upgradable Macbook, throw in an SSD and stuff it with RAM and it is still fantastic for general use, but *not* Resolve.)

Anywho... could someone at BlackMagic please confirm one way or the other, so I can either put down my money to get this thing, or move on without it, and invest in something else? I'm not afraid to spend money on good tools, but I'm not prone to throw it away for nothing, either. That's why I mention the Editing Keyboard as well. With all of the new features of 17, that is also looking a lot more attractive.

But I can't find anything about the Editing Keyboard on linux, either. Even a year after release? Does it not work either? Or do regular keyboard functions work, while special keys and jog wheel don't? Or does the whole thing work... which would make "speed editor doesn't work" an even weirder situation.

Which brings up another weird thing... can't find it now but didn't somebody from BlackMagic say the Speed Editor isn't supported on 16? Yet the Editing Keyboard has been out there for a year, on 16? Is the Speed Editor not mostly a subset of the Editing Keyboard? If it is, why wouldn't it at least partially work on 16? And if it isn't... what is the fundamental difference, other than lacking the QWERTY bits and having some additional special keys in "num pad-ish" area?

The speed editor not working on 16 is another strong indicator that BlackMagic uses its own protocol for these. It watches for them by name or ID on the USB/bluetooth bus, connects to them, and uses an internal mapping for them. Something like that. 16 knows the ID for the Editing Keyboard, and has a mapping for it. It doesn't for the Speed Editor, and isn't looking for it, so it won't work.

Which brings me back again to the beginning... other devices speaking BlackMagic protocols work on Linux. They know how to do it. So why wouldn't this one?

So many questions. 8-) Could BlackMagic please answer some of them for me? I understand that some of them you probably can't get into, but at least tell me for sure if it is safe for me to buy this product or not. :mrgreen:

I pre-ordered one at B&H. They indicate the combo is not returnable, so it is important to know if it works with Linux soon.

Please pick one (or more):

A. Linux is supported.
B. Linux is not supported.
C. Linux might be supported at some time.
D. Linux is not supported but might work with USB, but perhaps not Bluetooth.
E. Linux will not work no matter what you do.
F. I don't know. The Speed Editor team won't talk to me.
G. Better cancel your B&H order before you're stuck with a brick.

Trying to be patient, but yeah...

Some folks waiting to find out if they should cancel an order. Others (me) waiting to find out if they should place one, before the promo deal runs out.

Either way, some nervous calendar & clock watching going on here. :?

umm, that worryingly sounds a bit less like "we designed this hardware to work on an officially supported platform" and kinda more like "one of the devs has a nix box kicking around and he's going to see if he can get this thing the hardware guys just threw at us working".

Here's to hoping though. :?

Thank you.

Should we interpret this as "although it may not work right at the moment, we expect to have it working in the reasonably-near future"?

And safely act on that interpretation by going ahead and placing an order for one, knowing that it will not remain forever a brick? Or by not cancelling an already existing order for one?

I don't mind waiting a bit to have it, or for a bit longer for it to become usable in Linux. As long as I can be sure that at some point, it will. 8-)

I just received my Davinci Resolve Speed Editor.
I have to admit that I was sceptic about it's compatibility with Linux systems. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS.

I uninstalled Resolve 16 and installed DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_17.0b4_Linux using the latest MakeResolveDeb v1.4.1 which "Added support for Editing Keyboard and the Speed Editor (17 only)."

BUT the speed editor doesn't work using USB connection, nor the Bluetooth connection. Still, it is detected, as it shows-up as "Blackmagic design DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor" in lsusb.

Does anyone has some ideas?
Thanks!

One more thing.. I tried to manually run 'opt/resolve/DaVinci Control Panels Setup/DaVinci Control Panels Setup'.
When the keyboard is not connected the app is running displaying that you need to connect the panel to the USB port. After I connected the keyboard and re-run the app, it says
"terminating with uncaught exception of type std::runtime_error: Unable to get Serial Number
Aborted (core dumped)"

It would be interesting to have a look at the Resolve log file.
Does it mention anything about the new device?

I'm still waiting for my Speed Editor so I can't do any testing myself.

It would be interesting to have a look at the Resolve log file.
Does it mention anything about the new device?

I'm still waiting for my Speed Editor so I can't do any testing myself.


I'm glad if I can help somehow.

I was looking at Resolve version stated in log files: Running DaVinci Resolve v17.0.0b.0013
Also, the Resolve About says: Version 17.0B BUILD 13.
This is the latest Resolve version for 17.0 Beta4?

Thanks Chris for the detailed info.
I still have the same output as yours (lsusb, logs and files) but unfortunately the Speed Editor doesn't work in Resolve. I tested in Windows and it works, but in Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS doesn't. Nor in Linux Mint Cinnamon
Did you performed some additional steps in Resolve to make it work?
Did you run it with sudo?

Thanks!
Vali

Hi, Vali,

Unfortunately, mine does not work on Linux either. But does on my Windows setup. I might try running a strace to see if I can capture any additional detail. I also wonder if DR can be started in debug mode to get more verbose logging?

**Updated**

It looks like Linux is seeing the keyboard fine, just DR is not. :(
Code: Select all
lshw
...
*-usb:1
                      description: Human interface device
                      product: DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor
                      vendor: Blackmagic Design
                      physical id: 3
                      bus info: usb@3:5.3
                      version: 1.00
                      serial: 14D************************
                      capabilities: usb-2.00
                      configuration: driver=usbhid maxpower=100mA speed=12Mbit/s

I discovered you can set log verbosity here, but added little extra that I saw.
Code: Select all
/home/chris/.local/share/DaVinciResolve/configs/log-conf.xml

Output can be found here.
Code: Select all
/home/chris/.local/share/DaVinciResolve/logs/ResolveDebug.txt

I'll report back with anything new as I find it.

Cheers
Chris

I was looking into the verbosity logs but as you said, nothing new.
I took my attention this:

Code: Select all
[0x7fbd1715e700] | SyManager            | INFO  | 2020-12-11 18:26:44,706 | Starting keyboard device monitor thread...

Then I looked into panel.log where I saw this:
Code: Select all

I can confirm the Speed Editor is recognised by the system correctly according to lsusb, but not by DR.

Hope we don't have to wait for too long until it works in Linux.

Yes, same build as valimitaru257 says. RS 17.0b4, or 17.0B Build 13 according to the "About" splash screen.

Got mine today. Just out of the box and it's still cold. Simply plugged it in, voila!

So it works with 17b4 on Ubuntu 20.04.

Did you use MakeResolveDeb v1.4.1 from https://www.danieltufvesson.com/makeresolvedeb to make .deb package from .run?

Thanks!

I have to admit that it works on my end only by running as sudo.
cd /opt/resolve/bin
sudo ./resolve
It might be some user permissions that doesn't allow to access the usb ports when running it as logged-in user.

I end-up changing the user and group for (in my case) /dev/hidraw2. Also I was looking also in /dev/usb/hiddev

No, I just ran the .run file. I have used Daniel's script in the past with great success, but it no longer seems to be needed.

Thank you Noel for the update! Nice to know it's finally working. I'm still waiting on mine.

valimitaru257, regarding makeresolvedeb, make sure you are using the latest version (currently 1.4.3).

I can confirm it works now after installing it just from the run installer instead of the deb detour on Xubuntu 20.04.

Has anyone gotten it to work with bluetooth? I'm running Resolve 17 beta5 on Pop OS, it works fine over USB-C, but its dead when I try to use bluetooth only. It's otherwise recognized by the system and it says that it's connected.

Works fine here on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS but so far only with cable and ONLY on DR17 (so the speed editor is not supported on DR16).
