Spacenavigator support will need to be re-coded for 2.5's new event system. Shouldn't be too difficult, and there might possibly be a gsoc project to do this, but it's not done yet. (Probably speaking out of my arse as I'm not an advanced programmer) This is the GHOST_Types.h file correct? or is th...

The theme colors seem to be your best bet. I'm assuming your using windows (I apologize if your not) but they do have a magnifier included in the accessibility options. At least you could try that and see if it works well with it. I know there is a commercial one out there but I cant for the life of...

Re: Mac SpacePilot/SpaceNavigator plugin

I noticed the zip file extracts also various other files, which are not mentioned in the installation instructions, namely... Those are there in case you want/need to build the plugin. I got the mac version of those, and (after modifying the build.sh to make the ARCH x86_64 and pointing the binary ...

Re: Can 2.49 and 2.5a co-exist on the same system (Linux)?

First of all, a quick test run of 2.5 looks really promising, so a lot of good work has been done by a lot of competent people - kudos! Impressive features and a much improved UI. However, I'm not quite ready to scrap the stable release, and I haven't been able to find any info on a safe folder str...

If you would like to be credited using a different name, your real name or no name let me know. Thanks again. I dare say, that using this...

How did you compile the driver/plug-in? I need to reload the commercial driver again to get the buttons going as I have no idea how to get them going with the open-source version. In the blender plugin zip from 3dconnexion (3DxBlender2_47-Linux-i386.zip) there is a file called 3dcnxplug-lin.c it sa...

Holy guacamole, (a pun) It works! Where did you get this file? I have the open source driver and your plug file and I am going in Blender! Thank you so much! Have you gotten the buttons to work? Thats the one I compiled from the source that was included with the 3dconnexion plugin. I have a 64bit s...

Working in 2.49.2...

Ubuntu 9.10 64bit

I compiled the plugin from the source included with the commercial 3dconnexion plugin. Was the only way I could get it to work.

It still doesnt seem to work with the 2.5 alpha yet.

Still poking around to see if its me, or the alpha :?:

seems easy enough.

Try also installing 32bit Python. /Nathan I did, but then it broke my python install. Python still worked, but then I had to manually do anything and manually import some items. Once I uninstalled 32bit and left only the 64 bit, it worked. I cant remove the 64bit because there is too much of this s...
