3Dconnexion - SpacePilot (not pro)

I'm trying to get the SpacePilot (not the pro version ) from 3Dconnexion to work on F23, originally it was operating as a mouse. I edited xorg.conf to ignore it. At one point I tried to install the 3dconnexion proprietary no longer supported drivers from 2013 not knowing about spacenav and that it was already installed but the spacepilot was acting as a mouse when I first plugged it in before I did anything. I'm pretty new to linux, but here is what I've come up with. I opened blender which is supposed to support it, but it doesn't function.

Maybe I should have posted this in the Photography, Imaging and Graphics Software subforum. Could I get it moved?

Re: 3Dconnexion - SpacePilot (not pro)

As you wish, it looks a nice bit of kit. I'd never seen one before looking it up after reading your post so unfortunately can't offer any guidance. hopefully someone will but please be aware this is a user community and as such it may take a while to get an answer if anyone knows what to do.

Yea, I tried that one and the log file of spacenavd is spnavd.log in my original post. It works fine in windows

Re: 3Dconnexion - SpacePilot (not pro)

spacenavd driver from the official repo works well out-of-box, no need to fiddle around.
Also most linux sofware using this device uses this driver, not the proprietary one. I've tested with blender and chimera.
Anyway, after installing the driver you should enable the service by
Code:
systemctl enable spacenavd.service
systemctl start spacenavd.service
This is tested with my SpaceNavigator, but I'm pretty sure that SpacePilot is also supported. You should maybe create a config with different options for the Pilot? Check /usr/share/doc/spacenavd/README and /usr/share/doc/spacenavd/example-spnavrc

See also https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/...spacenav-users for troubleshooting, the driver's developer is a quite helpful guy.
