X11 support

Hi, I was wondering if the X11 system on Mac is supported by the SpaceNavigator (or other 3Dconnexion devices). Many scientific programs that are compiled for both Linux and Mac use X11 (e.g. molecular visualization and building tools like Coot or PyMOL) and if there was a generic interface that med...

The problem is caused by the Chimera implementation. Their support explained that they couldn't get it to work any other way, as the documentation of the device's driver was deficient back when they were implementing it. Sadly, it is not a high priority issue for the Chimera developers right now, bu...

I tried Google Earth and the Cube at the same time, they work as they should, responding only while the program is active.

I'll notify the Chimera and MacPyMOL developers about these issues and post here if there's any progress.

Thank you for your assistance!

Best regards,

Oh, and anoter thing I have noticed is that after the device has been connected to the computer and Chimera has been open for several hours, the navigating starts to jag and eventually Chimera stops responding to the 3D mouse. Restarting the program fixes the issue. I haven't noticed this behaviour ...

Changes to the knob configuration (axes, speed etc) apply to both Chimera and MacPyMOL and I can have different settings for each. If both programs are open, the settings of the active program are used eg when Chimera is active, the PyMOL model moves analogously and vice versa. The buttons, however,...

I have a MacBookPro6,2 (Mid-2010 15" 2,66 GHz Core i7) running OS X 10.7.1 (Lion). I have the 10.0.3 beta driver installed. I did create specific configurations, but it happens without them, too. I don't have any other USB input devices besides a regular mouse. Right now the situation is as follows:...

UCSF Chimera, controlling only the active program

Hi, I got myself a SpaceNavigator for Notebooks and after half a day of fiddling with it I must say it's awsome! I use it mainly with UCSF Chimera, which is a powerful visualization and analysis tool for macromolecules. For some reason you don't have it in your supported programs list. The program c...
