Enabling dominant axis in Linux (Ubuntu)

Post by GT-Force » Tue Dec 06, 2011 1:17 pm

Hi,

I'd like to enable the dominant axis functionality (available in Windows drivers) in Linux, but I cannot see it in the spnavcfg window.

Is there a way to do this at the driver level, or must it be supported at the application level?

Thank you.

Hi GT-Force,

spnavcfg is not one of our products.

If you download the driver for Linux from our website you get 3DxWareLinux version 1.6.0 and in the driver panel you will find the button to switch to the dominant mode.

Conflicting drivers

Before I do so, should I uninstall the other driver, or would simply installing this be sufficient. I would not want to break what is working now, while trying to get it working better. Linux... :roll:

Thanks.

I understand. But I would recommend to uninstall the other driver. The possibility that both conflict is rather high. Only one can access the device.
