Does anybody know a good trackball mouse for linux?

I'm always interested to know of good trackballs (I use mine with my left hand, leaving my right free for the number pad). The one I'm using right now is an "Orbit" from Kensington. Although it has only two buttons, I have found it to work satisfactorily with Linux : in fact I have only ever used it with Ubuntu.

@cuteascii @SDF I’m using a ELECOM Huge. I’m quite happy with it.

@cuteascii I've been using Logitech TrackMan for years. I think you can still find them, but trackballs in general are much harder to find now then even 5yr ago.

I have used a Kensington orbit for years and I am very happy with it.

@cuteascii I use two from Kensington, the Expert, and the SlimBlade The both work righty and lefty, and I like them both.

The X-keys trackball was formerly made by a company called CST, you'll find more about it under that name (Clearly Superior Trackball/Technologies). Excellent design, nearly unchanged in 25 years because it hasn't needed anything different. CHM in Mtn View has one in a display case, I have one on my desk.
