Spacepilot driver for maya 2014 on Linux

Post by schoko » Sat May 25, 2013 10:41 am

Hello everyone!

Does anyone know how to use the spacepilot for maya 2014 on linux?
I guess there is only a version for maya 2013 available.
When is a release planned?
Or workaround..?

Thanks in advance!

Hi schoko,

It's in the works. We expect to have a plug-in for Maya 2014 for Linux available within a few weeks.

Our apologies for the delay.

Thanks for your reply ngomes!

I installed the new driver, but at startup i get the following error message:

// Error: ... //
// Error: Line 0.147: Syntax error //
// Error: ... //
// Error: Line 0.140: Syntax error //
// Error: line 0: Cannot find procedure "_3DxNumberOfButtons". //
file -f -new;
// untitled //
commandPort -securityWarning -name commandportDefault;
// Error: line 0: Cannot find procedure "_3DxNumberOfButtons". //

The Plugin version is (regarding the plugin info of maya): 4.3.3, api version: 201400
Console Output while maya starting:
3dxinit ok


Please help!

Thanks!

Hi schoko,

the error
  • // Error: line 0: Cannot find procedure "_3DxNumberOfButtons". //
is a known issue, but it should not have any impact on the functionality of the plugin. Do you have problems with the use of the 3D mouse?

BTW: the other errors and messages are coming from Maya or another plugin.

Thanks for the reply!

I tried a lot of the settings in the 3dconnexion control panel.
But i cant see any movement in the 3d view.

But i get these Error messages, when i try to move the 3dmouse:

// Error: _3DxOnMotionEvent -0,087305 -0,133255 -0,215965 0,000000 0,000000 -1,579645; //
// Error: Line 1.21: Wrong number of arguments on call to _3DxOnMotionEvent. //
// Error: _3DxOnMotionEvent -0,004595 -0,151635 -0,551400 -8,161497 13,953527 -5,792030; //
// Error: Line 1.21: Wrong number of arguments on call to _3DxOnMotionEvent. //
// Error: _3DxOnMotionEvent 0,000000 0,000000 0,000000 0,000000 0,000000 0,000000; //
// Error: Line 1.20: Wrong number of arguments on call to _3DxOnMotionEvent. //

it seems to be an errormessage from the driver..?
Please help!!

Thanks
