My questions might fit to all 3DC products but I'm most interested in SpacePilot and SpaceExplorer case.
My distro: Kubuntu 10.04 (will be switched to 10.10 shortly).
1. Can the device be used for cursor control?
I'm thinking of using SpacePilot as regular cursor controller for my computer, because I like ThinkPad's Trackpoints
very much, but I get tired after many hours of working and I think that bigger device may increase level of comfort. So can I use 3DC products in the same way as trackpoints?
2. Can i set up the device to do scrolling actions when I rotate it in it's axis?
Right figure on this picture
Rotating clockwise would scroll down and vice versa. Is this possible?
