Was testing this the other day on my DA Power Mac G4. The keyboard (K780) and mouse (MX Master 2S) were both paired to a unifying receiver in Linux (OSS Unifying app) first. I plugged the receiver into one of the ports on my cinema display, and after a second, OS 9.2.1 recognized both. The K780 has built-in layout switching between Mac and PC, so I was able to switch to the Mac layout, and everything worked as expected. Scrolling and right-clicking on the mouse worked. I didn't bother trying anything else, but unless Classilla supports the standard keyboard shortcuts for forward and backward, I doubt the navigation buttons do anything.

Anyhow, just thought I'd share.

USB Overdrive is still around ... with downloads going back to Jaguar.

You'd probably have to contact them about the OS9 version. Which I bought once upon a time, and doubtless still have.

Yeah I'm retarded and didn't realize I had USB Overdrive installed. But that made everything work, so it's a pretty rad setup.
