Re: FreeCAD natively under Gnome/Wayland

It was quite easy. Coin works without glx for FreeCAD probably because the funtionality is not needed by FreeCAD and Coin has a dummy implementation. I just had to add a patch to the Arch build recipy: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/coin-hg/ not to find glx: diff -ura coin/CMakeLists.txt coin.ne...

FreeCAD natively under Gnome/Wayland

Hi, with Qt 5.12 it is possible to run FreeCAD natively under Wayland. All window decorations are nicely drawn. It is also crisper on HiDPI displays because scaling is handled better. I had to hack the Coin3d build to prevent the linking with libglx, because otherwise FreeCAD would crash as soon as ...

Re: Unable to connect to SpaceNavigator with FreeCAD 0.17 on Fedora 28

In that case it should be 3DCONNEXION_FOUND on Mac ;) But more important right now is the implementation. I did add a new class. Which implementation is used on the different platforms is handled by cmake. The data exchange between GuiNativeEvent and GuiApplicationNativeEventAware is not clean. GuiN...

Re: Unable to connect to SpaceNavigator with FreeCAD 0.17 on Fedora 28

We have, in a sense, two bits of state that need to be captured here: are we using space navigator or not, and which API. We already have precompiler switches for space navigator, so all that we really need to add is a bit of state for the API choice. And we have 3 different platforms. Mac and Win ...

Re: Unable to connect to SpaceNavigator with FreeCAD 0.17 on Fedora 28

Hi, I just pushed a first version to my Github repository. The Linux build works with Qt5. I will also try to build on Linux with Qt4 and on Mac OSX. I would appreciate, if someone could work on the Windows build. I kept the option name SPNAV_USE_X11. The option has nothing to do with Wayland direct...

Re: Unable to connect to SpaceNavigator with FreeCAD 0.17 on Fedora 28

@ian You are of course right about communicating but I had some time and because it simply worked, I posted the result. The drivers under Wayland cannot use X because XWayland is just a layer for the running programs. We have to switch as Wayland will become more common. @wmayer I will try to cleanu...
