ShuttleXpres or ShuttlePro V2 is possible conect to Linux.
Drivers: the current linux kernel knows the Shuttle Xpress/V2 and has the right drivers
(test: To demonstrate ShuttleXpress is completely functional: sudo apt-get install evtest
And then: sudo evtest /dev/input/by-id/usb-Contour_Design_ShuttleXpress-event-if00
If you can see the responses as you jog ShuttleXpress, you did it )
Download and extract the zipped files to anywhere you wish (I sent it to my home directory).
There are some changes to be made in order to make the soft work with ShuttleXpress.
Open “shuttle” and change the path to what you got from “ls /dev/input/by-id/ | grep Contour” (in my case “/dev/input/by-id/usb-Contour_Design_ShuttleXpress-event-if00”).
Then, open “99-ShuttlePRO.rules” and rename “Contour Design ShuttlePRO v2” to “Contour Design ShuttleXpress”.
apt-get install build-essential libx11-dev libxtst-dev
sudo cp 99-ShuttlePRO.rules /etc/udev/rules.d
sudo make install
Make sure everything is in place:
ls /usr/local/bin/shuttle; ls /etc/udev/rules.d/99-ShuttlePRO.rules
To start running just do:
If you can scroll the terminal by wheeling the jog, you just did it.
To stop the soft, just “Ctrl + C”.

Open file manager with root axes: sudo nautilus
Copy the example.shuttlerc file to /root/.shuttlerc and edit it there.
Instead of " [Defauld] key" whrite yourself code or paste my SuttleXpress code:
