Hi everyone
Is there a working solution for LG P1 keyboard on Leopard (kalyway or iatkos? by the way witch is the best for this notebook) Still wondering witch to choose.

I've had uphuck's 10.4.9 but because of the infamus keybord issue i gave it up.

Shoud i expect this problem to be solved in any of the new leo releases?
Is there a proven patch to solve it?

I dont own a usb keyboard so i cant realy try out the mac os (I love the looks but i'd like to try it out hands on)

Does anyone have a real solution for this especific hardware.

I'm DESPERATE!!! :)

I spent some more time to create more accurate patch. Now it does not do BAT (keyboard self test), but only sets needed parameters. Also I got rid of annoying messages in system log.

But, in fact new KernelExtension do all the same things.

If your keyboard does not work with this patch - PLEASE, tell me keyboard type/manufacturer/ID/somethingElseToDetermineKeyboard. Type of your notebook, if it's native laptop keyboard.

PS/2 protocol is awfull! But I'll try to write normal driver. Next step will be looking to linux ps/2 drivers.

New Extension (installation is the same):



my laptop is LG R400, with pentium dual core, chipset 945, ICH7-M... my keyboard on laptop don't work, my trackpad work.... one solution?

YEAH I got it to work on my GA-K8N Pro SLI MB with this...

Hi, I did it, it works awesome and I'm going to gave you step by step Instruction (Del Inspiron 2650)
Native Keyboard and TauchPad Works Flowless :D

1) Go to HardDisk>Applications>Utilities> (and turn on terminal)
2) (Tupe in Terminal) sundo nano /etc/rc (Push Enter)
3)(It Will Ask you Password: and type in your user pasword and push ENTER)
4)(It Will open rc file and navigation menu on the bottom, push CONTROL+V untill you go to the and of the fille)
5) (Betwan) if [ "${VerboseFlag}" != "-v" ]; then
/usr/libexec/WaitingForLoginWindow
fi


(Line and) exit0 (line insert this code:)

kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext

6)(Push CONTROL+O, to activate saving potion, Push CONTROL+T, to activate "save to file option")
7)(navigate down and right in to a fille list untill you find "rc" file, get cursor on top of it and push enter, it'll save changes)
8)(Push Control+X, to exite rc fille)
9)(Tupe in exit in terminal, close terminal and reboot)

Hopefully itll be work
good luck.


AND WITH THIS ...

sorry guys... but i was trying to make it fine. The problem is that the system reload automaticly the permissions as before.
I'll try to explain...
We have a package which is responsible of ps2 devices : ApplePS2Controller.kext, this package contains three kextfile : ApplePS2keyboard, ApplePS2trackpad and ApplePS2mouse.
the problem we have, we have to reload the good version of package with goods permissions.

The package i have is attached here :D

so now, we have many solutions:
- change the /etc/rc file which will be executed at every boot.
- unload and reload the kext file.

i don't garantee this solutions works fine, but you must try many times for working :(
the first solutions (under windows):
Download MacDrive
open the file rc in your osx HD and edit it with texteditor (add
"kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext"
at the end of rc file just before "exit 0")
Save and close.
Reboot and tell me :D


the second solution (under osx):
delete files .mkext .kextcache (2 files normally) in /System/Library/
copy the package .kext i attached into /System/Library/Extensions (you'll need to authenticate so don't forget to load the virtual keybord;))
load this command in terminal (copy it into a textfile and "copy&paste") YOU WILL NEED A ROOT ACCESS!!!

sudo diskutil repairPermissions /
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext
kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/

ok, let's try it ;)




and if someone comes here and have a better solution WHICH works ...tell us!!
i don't its the best.


So hope you tried like this and it might work for you!!!! :D ;)

Hey Phanter- thanks for your advice. I was going to try what worked for you but when I enter sudo nano /etc/rc in terminal nano just opens a blank file. I don't seem to have the rc file. With MacDrive (from Windows) I can see that I just have a rc.common and rc.netboot file. I am using Kalyway 10.5.2 vanilla kernel. Any idea why I can't open the rc file?

Thanks in advance,

mcgyver100

I have try nearly all the PS2Controller.kext but none of them work including your PS2keyboard driver.
So please can you help me to get my Built-in PS2 keyboard work for once.

I got my keyboard and trackpad working by installing Leo4All V2 then on reboot immediately after install Jas 10.5.4 selecting only essentials. This sorted everything out. ;)

I'm not sure why but Leo4All seems to have the perfect PS/2 support.
