Resources for XInput drivers and 6D controllers
I have written XFree86-4.0.1 XInput drivers for the Spaceball 4000
FLX and the SGI dialbox (the dialbox driver is an upgrade from 3.x
The XInput design changed in XFree86 4.x, and this isn't documented
yet. I got this working by browsing source for other drivers. They work
for me, but probably still have bugs.
Spaceball 4000 FLX driver
driver source: spaceball.tgz
driver source: dialbox.tgz
GLUT dial demo source: dials.c
driver binary: dialbox_drv.o.gz ( gunzip & put in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input )
Note: Netscape typically wants to save .gz files without the .gz extension even though they are still gzipped.
XInput test program
A simple program to test valuator and button output from an XInput
device. Key devices aren't supported yet, but since you can't test the
system keyboard while X is using it, this is usually not a problem.
Feedback is appreciated.
