I'm a student writing a VJ app in Java/JOGL and I'd like to be able to hook up a Space Navigator and do some cool things. I think I have jinput installed correctly and when I run:


I get this:

Controller Env =

And it lists all my peripherals including usb mouse and bluetooth keyboard but no Space Navigator.

Also not listed when running this:
Scanning Apple Internal Keyboard / Trackpad
Found 0 rumblers
Scanning Trackpad
Found 0 rumblers
Scanning Apple Internal Keyboard / Trackpad
Found 0 rumblers
Scanning matt’s keyboard
Found 0 rumblers
Scanning USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse
Found 0 rumblers

Also using, it seems to detect movement from the internal trackpad on my laptop and built in keyboard & bluetooth keyboard, but doesnt detect movement from my usb mouse.

Has anyone got this working on a Mac or can shed any light on this? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi there, I'm also looking to get the spacenavigator up and running in JInput on Mac, I see that something was able to be done to make it work on Linux: 
Is it possible the same fix would work on Mac?

Yes, and I have no problem reading from mice/keyboards/joysticks/tablets.  Just the spacenavigator isn't detected as a device.
