Is there any possibility to connect an optical mouse of a sun to a pc
Any idea ? Any experience ?
I once had a Mouse Systems PC based optical mouse, and a Sun Type 4 mouse allQuote:>Is there any possibility to connect an optical mouse of a sun to a pc
From my experience, the answer is MAYBE. The physical mouse is the same, the
printed circuit board is the same, but the electronics inside are completely
different. If you were to remove all the electronics and the cable from the
Sun mouse, and replace them with new parts so the electronics match that of the
PC mouse, you could rewire the Sun mouse. I haven't attempted this yet, and I
do not have access to the PC mouse anymore, so I can't copy it.
If someone has made a schematic of the PC version, I would be interested in
obtaining a copy of it.
Are any of you using this mouse with XFree86?
I suppose it's silly to ask if a Mouse Systems mouse is
"mousesystems" compatible but I've found real differences in
Logitech mice--some work, some don't.
Thank you for your attention.
