Anyone using it smoothly in SLED?
According to the Supported OS at the 3Dconnexion web site, SLED is among them. Sure, about 90% of the features are not supported, but at least it is in this list.
At the moment I have been able to use it in Ubuntu 15.04, thanks to “spacenavd” SpaceNavigator (SN from now on) was recognized and it does work to some extent.
However, it doesn’t quite orbit around the selected object. I made sure “Rotate Around Selection” under View Manipulation in the Blender Prefs is check marked. And I have tried all the orbiting styles available from SN (Free: Orbit, Free. & Turntable: Trackball, Turntable).
Only it pans and zooms.
The left button brings up a contextual menu
While the right button brings the selected object to the center of the 3d window.
I did a search in Ubuntu for a control panel or app offering other settings but nothing comes up when searching for “space”, neither “3dconnexion”, nor “spacenav”.
The latest version (which is not found in Synaptic) is found here at the Spacenav.sourceforge.net. But it seems one needs to know how to compile the files
