How can I convert the Spacenavigator as a Joystick device?

Post by cyycdy » Sun Jun 22, 2014 11:15 pm

I want to use the spacenavigator as a controller to control the AR.Drone.
But my application that run in Ubuntu 13 can just recognize the "joystick"(/dev/input/js*).
And when i plugged the spacenavigator, Ubuntu 13 recognize it as an "event device"(/dev/input/event*).
So, how can I convert or emulate the spacenavigator as a "Joystick".
Thanks a lot!

Hello cyycdy,

the release driver does not provide this possibility in the GUI. The discussions about this are in the 3DxWare 10 Beta Forum. The beta driver is not maintained anymore. We have dropped this feature in the GUI. There is no official support for this. Sorry. You can just follow the instructions here.

The info about the beta only applies to Windows, not Linux.

We do not have a solution for Linux. Sorry
