Not sure.



you compiled freecad yourself? if so, did you have libspnav installed? A quick check:

Code: Select all

ldd freecad
you should see something like:

Code: Select all

libspnav.so.0 => /usr/lib/libspnav.so.0 (0x00007f410788f000)


from your log file:

Code: Select all

Lost the X server!

Been a long time since I ran the spacenav driver, so I don't know if this is significant or not.

No it's standard installation on Xubuntu 16.04.

No, it's not installed. If I try to install with sudo apt-get install libspnav, message is "cannot find libspnav.

There is no directory called .freecad, because it's a standard installation, not self compiled.

Sorry, difficult to understand for me, because it's not compiled and libspnav, I don't know this library.

I have installed spacenavd from repo:

Code: Select all

package is actually libspnav0, but doesn't matter as the repo version is linked.




run freecad from terminal with:

Code: Select all

FreeCAD -l
You can shut it down as soon as it is running. This will create a log file in the hidden .FreeCAD folder under your home folder. Inside that log file should be a message describing whether or not it was able to connect to the spacenav daemon. Mine says 'Log: Connected to spacenav daemon'

The repo version is outdated, but downloading the source and installing it is fairly easy. As I recall, that solved some issues I had.

freecad-heini-1 is not using the Ubuntu repo version, I believe he's using the PPA's. See his first post: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9198&start=60#p128331

That should be unnecessary on Ubuntu with the PPA's.

Hello Guys,

I already asked ths question before in a new threads in "help on using freecad" and "install/compile" topic.
but besides a recent link to this thread i had no response so far.

my problem.. I purchased a 2e hand space navigator and installed spacenavd 0.6
have it installed in Ubuntu 16.04 / 16.10 and now 17.04

although the setup itself isn't always easy i have always been able to get it to work (using the sudo xhost +, sudo /etc/init.d/spacenavd restart ) before start up. (just did a mod from this page but haven't tested it yet).

anyway the space navigator works.. EXCEPT! the buttons.
the button field is there (not blank) but everything is greyed out.. there is nothing i can do with it. (see prntscn.jpg)

is there something i did do wrong here or didn't do.. so the buttons don't work?
or anyone else has an idea?

would really appreciate any assistance.

any test will be done on request.. i'd give it already if i know what to give and how to give it.

Kind greatz
