I have installed "spacenav_node" package from http://wiki.ros.org/spacenav_node. But it doesn't work in my computer. ROS version is kinetic-kame.

Can anyone give me advice?

Terminal log:

mslab@gm:~$ roslaunch spacenav_node classic.launch 


connect failed: No such file or directory
[ERROR] [1560673167.696865281]: Could not open the space navigator device.  Did you remember to run spacenavd (as root)?

On recent Linux kernels the spacenav devices are supported directly.

I don't believe you need to use the spacenav node any more.
