Some things I can contribute in order others can push this a little further.

1) Nor Lightworks neither Contour Design supports ShuttleXpress jog at this time

2) As the Contour's post forum says: "the current linux kernel knows the Shuttle Xpress and has the right drivers". And this is very true.

If I shoot "lsusb | grep Contour" in terminal in my "Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS trusty x86_64" ("lsb_release -a; uname -m") this is what I get: "Bus 004 Device 003: ID 0b33:0020 Contour Design, Inc. ShuttleXpress".

And as long as "ls /dev/input/by-id/ | grep Contour" gives me "usb-Contour_Design_ShuttleXpress-event-if00" I know my Linux box recognized the jog.

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

3) The post also claims: "avidemux finds my Shuttle Xpress out of the box and I can use it without any further steps". Well, this was not true with my 64 bit version...

4) There is a free project at github.com/nanosyzygy/ShuttlePRO aimed at ShuttlePROv2 but that also works to ShuttleXpress. My steps were as follows.

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".

Now Shoot:
apt-get install build-essential libx11-dev libxtst-dev
cd ~/ShuttlePRO-master
sudo make
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:
"sudo shuttle"

If you can scroll the terminal by wheeling the jog, you just did it.

To stop the soft, just "Ctrl + C".

5) The post finally says: "If your software does not directly support such hardware, the best way I found is to emulate keyboard and mouse shortcuts".

The readme file in ShuttlePRO-master (form github.com/nanosyzygy/ShuttlePRO) says at the end:

"Configuration instructions: Copy the example.shuttlerc file to $HOME/.shuttlerc and edit it there."

Well, in the end of "example.shuttlerc" there is "a sample set of bindings for Cinelerra" and then there's a list of Cinelerra commands.

We need to find the same scheme to Lightworks.

Places we might find something includes:

Lightworks setting on Shuttle Pro V2

Keyboard Shortcuts

Customising Keyboard

Shuttle Downloads for Mac

And here is where I am frozen.

Any ideas of what to do now?

[EDIT: Instead of "Scroll_Up" and "Scroll_Down", I'm using now "," and "." for jog left and right]

Paste the code bellow inside the ShuttlePRO config file at: ~/.shuttle

[Lightworks - Room1 Resources] ^Lightworks - Room1: Resources$

[Lightworks - Room1 Load] ^Lightworks - Room1: Load$

[Lightworks - Room1] ^Lightworks - Room1: [^[:space:]]*$
K5 XK_M # nudge 10 frames backward
K6 XK_J # play fast backwards
K7 XK_I # Cue In
K8 XK_L # play fast forewards
K9 "/" # nudge 10 frames foreward
# JL XK_Scroll_Up
# JR XK_Scroll_Down
JL ","
JR "."
S-7 XK_J
S-6 XK_J
S-5 XK_J
S-4 XK_J
S-3 XK_J
S-2 XK_J
S-1 XK_Control_L/D XK_4
S1 XK_Control_L/D XK_6

I just bought a brand new Shuttle Pro V2
Unfortunately the two side-buttons are not detected by Shuttle-go and ShuttlePro anymore. I'm assuming Contour has changed the key mapping because with the recent windows-driver all buttons are working well.

If necessary I'm willing to assist in finding the new keycodes.

Kind regards
