SpaceNavigatormapping axis to keys

Post by slash123 » Wed May 28, 2014 12:47 am

Hello,

is there a solution available to map the axis of the SpaceNavgator to keys like it is possible with profiles under Windows?

I would like to use Ubuntu 13

Thanks a lot,

im

No - sorry.

The driver for Linux doesn't provide this possibility.

Hello,

thanks UtaSH for the fast answer.

Is there an other known possibility to to this with some additional tools?
Like using the SpaceNavigator as a joystic and mapping the joystic inputs to keys or acions like Vol-Up or Vol-Down?

I want to use my SpaceNavigator with my CarPC and XBMC - Maybe there is an extra work around for XBMC?

Regards,

Tim

For linux, you might want to try tinkering with this.... https://github.com/mason-larobina/spnavkbd

it looks like it might do what you are looking for, but I cannot personally say how well it works.
