Manjaro Linux and Wireless Space Mouse

Post by Schwanzlurch » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:26 pm

Hi all,

I'm using Manjaro Linux and installed the space mouse drivers for a wireless space mouse. When I start the driver with /etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv -d usb I get the error "/etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv: symbol lookup error: /etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv: undefined symbol: xmFormWidgetClass".

Could anyone help me to solve this problem?

Thank ya,

Schwanzlurch

Hi,

you need to install Motif for the driver. You can use openMotif.

Note that we officially support only SUSE Linux 9.3, 10 and 11 and Red Hat 4 and 5.

i got the SpaceMouse Wireless for christmas. i also use manjaro linux and can't get it to work.

i followed the instructions and first did (with sudo where necessary):

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib64
ln -s libXm.so.4 libXm.so.3
then:

Code: Select all

tar xfz 3dxware-linux-v1-8-0.x86_64.tar.gz install-3dxunix.sh
./install-3dxunix.sh
the install script seemed to run successfully.

but if i try to start the driver with:

Code: Select all

/etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv -d usb
i get this error message:

Error: Could not open USB port or no supported device found! Exiting!

so i guess (like mentioned in the instructions for SuSE Linux 10.x) in manjaro linux the usbfs isn't mounted by default.

i tried:

Code: Select all

mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb
which resulted in:

mount: /proc/bus/usb: mount point does not exist.



does anyone have any hints? i would be very thankful! :)
