You actually respond to messages 7 years after the post. The official drivers work this around by running everything as root, which is a security problem. If you want to support SpaceNavigator in the Linux version of Cura or whatever it is actually very simple even without bothering with stuff like the various demons spacenavd or the official driver. However, you must retain the copyright notices in any source files containing code from the library, and binary redistributions must include the copyright notice in any documentation or other acompanying materials.

Finally, with modern systems it is possible to configure SpaceNavigator as XInput device and use the standard X APIs to access it, the same as you would e. For more details about 3Dconnexion and their devices: Ability to build the Second Life client from sources.

This section is obsolete. Overall, the design is a security liability.

Should I inspect spacenavd code or there is some clever way to do that via xinput or whatever? The same releases are also available through the sourceforge downloads page.

Apart from using VRPNwhich is an overkill for simple projects, it is easy to use the device directly using the input framework as HID device. The problem should be fixed. However, adding support is fairly simple.
