Aloha from Maui,

I've been communicating with Adesso about this problem which they were
unaware of. Singh, one of Adesso's the tech support personnel,has
contacted Apple and it seems they think they might have a fix. He issued
a Return Authorization and I've just sent mine in. Anxiously awaiting
its return! Suggest you contact support@adessoinc, Attn: Singh.

By the way, the problem isn't limited to using Linux! Adesso's NuForm
ergo keyboards don't work with NEW iMac 500s and MAC OS 9 either.
Apparently, Apple made some changes to both the keyboard and mouse for
its new model ... and your guess is as good as mine from that point on.

I have the IOGEAR miniview usb-kvm switch, connected to
this g4 with ydl cs1.2, an athlon with solaris and an athlon with
windows. The only problem I have had with
the setup is that there were problems with my Adesso USB ergo
keyboard and
solaris - not the switch - causing the keyboard to fail for all the machines.
Now all works very well with a ps/2 keyboard through
a Ymouse PS/2 => USB adapter and an m$ intellimouse optical.

Presumably the 2 port kind would work as well as the 4 port.
Sorry I have no info on the usb card.
