mmh... maybe I am missing something. I thought the problem was that 32 bit builds were used on a 64 bit platform. I didn't have the chance to verify or even try the 64 bit builds, so I can't help too much there. Well, not at the moment at least. If you verify problems with those builds, please notify blenderbuilds.com so any errors are fixed in the next builds.

Sorry for the delay in response, real word stuff etc

i am not running a 64 bit version so my problem is in the 32 bit version. I am using a 32 build on a 32 bit machine, I got the build from blenderbuilds, I got it here http://mirror.blenderbuilds.com/linux/i ... 802.tar.gz

I am trying to press the buttons while I have the cursor in the main window.

Also the cube demo utility which came with the driver seems to work It sees the left button as translations and the right as rotation. The right button seems to toggle between rotation and translation and the left button doesn

Could you try this version.
http://blendertestbuilds.de/Plugins/ndo ... 386.tar.gz
The plugin is already in the plugins-directory.
tar -xzf blender_ndof_kidb_feisty_i386.tar.gz
cd install/linux2
./blender

Build was made in 32bit chroot with a minimal feisty installation from latest svn.

Just wanted to add that Blender NDOF builds WITH the plugin included are now also available at

http://www.graphicall.org

Just unzip and it should be ready to go.
