As of joystick_drivers 1.9.0 (ROS Groovy release), the spacenav package has been removed.

The low-level spacenav driver is now supplied by system-level package management systems.

Using this Package

This package is provided because spacenav_node requires spacenavd and libspacenav which are not present in all supported Linux distributions. The spacenav_node tutorial explains how to use this package.

Building SpaceNav

Simply type:

  $ rosmake spacenav

The "rosmake" checks out and builds a version of spacenavd and libspacenav that has been tested with spacenav_node.
