We are pleased to introduce you the new development version of cadMousePro. The version
v0.5 brings several improvements:
1) Remapping the buttons:
By default, the wheel when pressed sends the same signal (2) as the middle button. So it
behaves like an ordinary mouse. But we can configure it to send a different signal (10).
There is also a small button behind the wheel, so-called „gesture“ button. By default, it
sends no (useful) signal. But we can persuade it to send a button signal (11).
It means that we have two more useful buttons and we can assign them some actions (in our
desktop environment or particular application).
2) It was reported that cadMousePro works also with CadMouse Wireless (P/N: 3DX-600054),
not only the Pro model (P/N: 3DX-600065).
Thanks Paul Guertin for the report and for discovering the magic numbers needed for
configuring the button mappings!
3) Bash completion script: suggests command-line options and their values and servers also
like a help (regular man page and --help is on the TODO list).
--daemon true \
--frequency 250 \
--lift-off-detection true \
--remap-gesture-button true \
--remap-wheel-press true \
4) Logging on the CLI/daemon side has been improved and now prints also values:
checking mouse presence: present
reading mouse name: 3Dconnexion Universal Receiver
configuring mouse: liftOffDetection=1 smartScrolling=0 remapWheelPress=1
5) License changed from GNU GPLv3+ to GNU GPLv3.
The cadMousePro is an independent free software tool for configuring 3DConnexion
