Check a later post in this forum for a pystromo config:
Update: 10-06-08: looks like it may be easier to try https://launchpad.net/pystromo, particularly for the newer model n52te's or whatever they are.
I have an N52 myself, and it is now working fine under 32 bit breezy.
You can get the drivers/config program from here:
the file you need is:
untar it to the directory of choice, then cd into that dir
i'm sure you need various development packages for this, i have a bunch installed, and am not sure which ones it relies on, if someone could try this off a fresh install that would be great.
sudo make install
then do the following:
and that should do it. now, the problem with this is that you will have to chmod /dev/input/event* everytime you boot, and also run nostromo_daemon. i solved this the quick and dirty way.
sudo chmod 666 /dev/input/event*
in your home directory, or wherever you like, do
then put the following text in:
if anyone has a better way to script that(it will prompt for password on login) please post, and i'll edit this.
gksudo 'chmod 666 /dev/input/event1'
gksudo 'chmod 666 /dev/input/event2'
gksudo 'chmod 666 /dev/input/event3'
gksudo 'chmod 666 /dev/input/event4'
gksudo 'chmod 666 /dev/input/event5'
gksudo 'chmod 666 /dev/input/event6'
save and close the file and make sure to do a:
or at least give it enough permissions to be read and executed by you(i'm just lazy and 777 is easy to remember).
chmod 777 nostromostart
Then simply go to System --> Preferences --> Sessions, click on startup programs, and add the location of your script, for example:
you need the ./ in front of your script so it will run.
That should be it, this worked for me, although I did a lot of tinkering and following various other guides on the web, so I may have left out packages you need, or anything else for that matter. Give it a try and let me know.
