FreeCAD simply does not recognise it ( Tools-3d_mouse_movement&buttons)
I have it compiled from git-repo on Gentoo (freecad-9999).
Device itself is recognised by the system as the moment I plug it in, i get /dev/input/spacenavigator, which i can "cat" and see the traffic if i touch the wheel.
I can do also this with "evtest /dev/input/spacenavigator", which reports:
I also installed spacenavd and libspnav.Input driver version is 1.0.1

When started, spacenavd reports device etc. I also do "spnav_ctl x11 start" after that and it reports
I use systemd service to start spacenavd. At start its blue LED turns ON, so communication with daemon seems to be fine.signalled spacenavd, it should now start sending X events.
spnavcfg works fine ( when spacenavd runs). It starts, finds device, I can ping it, turn LED ON/OFF etc.
But FreeCAD never sees the device.
Is there any way I can check if its daemon's fault ( "cat" its output socket perhaps etc).
Or is there something to check in FreeCAD's config ?
I use Gentoo Linux with portage's unchanged ebiuld for freecad-9999. Latest installation is quite fresh ( yesterday, I think)
