I am trying to get a 3dconnexion Device Running In Blender and could use some help.
Is this the correct forum category for this?
I am also trying to create a blog post to help others who use Ubuntu (Linux).
I think I have the device running using the open source driver but I have not gotten it going in Blender. I am using a SpacePilot.
This blog post details my progress so far and the steps I have taken:
I have seen many many forum posts (here, Ubuntu, 3Dconnexions, and elsewhere) of people that did not get the device going or who had odd results if they did. Time has passed and development happens…
Some users seemed to get the device going but did not say how. Some users seemed to need a special edition of Blender from a site that has apparently shut down.
I am using the current 64-bit Blender 2.49 from Ubuntu and the latest open source SpaceNav daemon. Spnavcfg shows the driver is going.
What should happen in Blender - how do I make this go? All help is REALLY appreciated.
