Great to see you are still interested - and my apologies for the delay - I've been working on a few things, and spending any spare time in trying to get the SpaceNavigator working well on all platforms.
Java 1.5 on OSX is a particular problem at the moment. The device is being found, and events are being received, but there is something different in Apple's Java that makes my EventLoop behave quite differently on OSX.
I am, however, no more than a week away from a solution, so if you encounter similar problems, come back and ask
I've uploaded the modified JAR onto the SourceForge project for which I made the changes.
The direct link should be:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/aoisp/ ... se_mirror=
If this gives problems, then go to this page and select the jinput-with-OSX-fix.zip file
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... _id=305721
And if that gives no joy, then go to the "aoisp" project on SourceForge, click "downloads", go to the "HIDPlugin" package, and download the file.
(aoisp is a project that publishes plugins for the pure-java 3D modelling and rendering package "Art Of Illusion")
Good luck and have a Happy New Year!
