If that robot runs linux, my driver should work just fine ( http://spacenav.sourceforge.net ). But for an embedded project I'd suggest you skip running unnecessary daemons, and get input from the device directly through evdev. You may take a look at my spacenavd source code to figure out how to do t...

You might want to try using my free driver instead of the 3dxsrv one, it works without any windows as a daemon, and it's compatible with the 3dxsrv protocol so it should work everywhere as a drop-in replacement.

In order to make the X server ignore the space navigator and not use it automatically as a pointer device, try adding the following file in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/:

Code: Select all

<xml>
<deviceinfo>
    <device>
        <match>
            <remove>
        </match>
    </device>
</deviceinfo>

Hi, I'm the author of the free spacenav driver. Please, if you have any problems with it, contact me directly (nuclear@siggraph.org), or open a bug report at sourceforge. I do not monitor this forum regularly, and I can't easily help you out here. First of all, as this project is under development, ...

Hi, it would be very easy to modify the free spacenavd driver to handle multiple HID event sources, but some thought must be given to what would you do with them. I guess the only sane use case, would be to have 2 apps, each get events from a different device. This cannot work in magellan/3dxsrv com...

Hello maurer. Sorry for the late response, but it would be preferable if you contact me directly for such questions (nuclear@siggraph.org), as I don't monitor this forum regularly. As for your questions: This release of the driver/sdk (0.1) is an early one, in the sense that not everything is finish...

New free software (open source) driver and SDK project

Hello everyone. I want to announce the first release of my free replacement driver and SDK for GNU/Linux. Free as in freedom of course (aka open source). Both the new driver and the new library are made compatible with the 3dconnexion ones, and can be used as drop-in replacements. I've tested my dri...

Multiple magellan clients, and timing data.

Hello everyone. During this past week, I created a free 3dxsrv replacement driver (daemon), and I'm in the process of ironing out a few quirks and fixing some bugs before I release it to the public. However, during my inability to run the official proprietary 3dxsrv (it crashes), I don't have enough...

kidb: Thanks very much for the info. Although I'm hardly familiar with the XInput extension and how you use it in a client program, it this seems like the preferable way to interface with the device under X11. However the XClientMessageEvent mechanism seems rather simple and since the "standard" SDK...

Just to clarify, my problem is *not only* the "user not found" issue :) I mean, I do have that problem, but as I mentioned before, I used a code snippet posted by someone in this forum to add a user to utmp the way 3dxsrv expects it. Which is of course a big fat hack :) Only then can I continue furt...

Also I did an ltrace and the last things it does are: A shitload of XrmGetResource(), which all return 0. Then: XLoadQueryFont(0x809cbe8, 0x80785ac, 0xbfda3298, 0x8096008, 0x8096008) = 0 XmFontListCreate(0, 0x807847b, 0xbfda3298, 0x8096008, 0x8096008) = 0 --- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) --- +++ kil...

Hello, sorry I didn't provide more helpful information on my first post but I was rather busy at the time. No there are no core files, but I used gdb to get a backtrace, which produces this: #0 0x0805a0fa in uiAllocFonts () #1 0x0805ad09 in UdUiInit () #2 0x0804c655 in main () Initially I had lessti...

3dxsrv crash (segfault)

Hello, and I'm running Debian GNU/Linux (kernel 2.6.16.9) and I have trouble making the driver work. Initially I had the problem that I saw other people post in here, with the utmp "user not found" messages. I used the workaround that someone posted in this forum (a small C snipped that adds a utmp ...
