The place where the cable leaves the body marks the top orientation of the device as with a normal 2D mouse. To clear commands from button, press “Clear”. Most of the time, lunux should be enough to use the 3D mouse in supported applications but Xevents has one spacemoouse, it’s capable of handle proprietary driver protocol Magellan.
