This is only Linux specific. X11 or X Window System is the windowing system for linux.
Without X you can have only a console based linux, no desktop.

MS Windows has its own system.

Didn't help very much. The usage is around 60 - 90 %.
The CPU itself is running on fullspeed(1,73 Ghz). It doesn't cycle down(798 Mhz), if the applet is running. The usage is to high.

Does you thread uses a while-loop?

Something like:

Code: Select all

while(!terminate) {

...
DoSomething();
...
}
If so, you need to add a little Sleep in the beginning of the loop, about 250ms for example.
This would reduce the cpu-usage!

Well i guess this is the 'easiest' way, but also a little 'dirty'. Please 3DConnexion Developers, put the Unix/Linux Driver into 'Open Source' - state. This would definitely worth it. So many users could contribute new versions and refinements and, what i think is the most importend, learn from it. ...

Are the linux sources for the driver available? I mean is the driver open source?
If not 3dconnexion should think about it, so that the community may be able to improve some things.
Anyway it would definitely cool, if you could do something to hide/iconify it.
I wish you good luck for this.
Greetings

Ah now it works flawlessly, thank you for this package and for you work.
The only thing i am now facing is this annoying configuration window of the driver.
It would be great if this could also be minimized to the gnome panel or at least to be closed.

SpaceNavigator Ubuntu 804 a few problems.

Greetings all of you, today i received my own SpaceNavigator PE and i love it!! Iam hoping that linux will get more applications with the SN driver support, like houdini i.e. That would be great. Anyway i've got a few problems. First: I managed to 'autostart' the driver daemon with upstart, but ther...
