I'm using the Zephyroth Leopard 10.5.2 install and I have followed the steps here for using a ps/2 keyboard with a usb mouse, but I still need to have a ps/2 mouse plugged in for me to be able to use my ps/2 keyboard.

Is there anything else I can do in order to get my ps/2 keyboard working without needing a ps/2 mouse plugged in?

same problem for me, tried 3 different ApplePS2Controller.kext and about a 100 different methods, the PS2 Keyboard just doesn't work. ;)

Maybe is not the ApplePS2 kext but the AppleACPIPlatform.kext you are using.

I used the PS/2 Keyboard, USB mouse method and it worked perfectly. But for some reason when I restarted and tried to use my keyboard I got the grey screen again after pressing a key. Any advice?

I have tried 3 methods:
1)disable the trackpad and ps2mouse
2) the Enhanced Apple PS/2 driver
3) the Hacked Apple PS/2 driver

None of them work

The weird thing is that when I used the Enhanced Apple PS/2 driver, the system booted, the GUI loaded, and I got a messagebox saying that the kext was not installed correctly and it can't be used. This is how I copied it: booted in "-s" mode, copied it to "/system/library/extensions", chown-ed and chmod-ed it, and deleted the extensions.mkext file. If this is not the correct method, what is the correct method to install it?

"Heres one for your guide.I installed with case sensitive journaled option. My keyboard and trackpad would not work. Plugins is mispelled in ApplePS2Controler.kext. It should be PlugIns with a capital I

Don"

THIS is a lifesaver for all with the Mac OS X 10.4.8 JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2.iso release!
TRY THIS FIRST if your PS/2 keyboard doesnt work!

I had trouble getting the mouse and trackpad on my Thinkpad T60 working after updating from 10.5.1 to 10.5.1.

After trying several things, a combination of the Fixed PS2 driver and replacing AppleACPIPlatform.kext with the 10.5.1 version seemed to do the trick.

Hi, I`m using Mac for the first time, and it`s quite diferent from WXP. I recentely bought an iMac and wondering if there is a Brazilian keyboard layout, instead of using a combinations of keys, like alt +e, to get the typing properly in portuguese.

Thanks,

If you are using Mac OS 10.4.x (a.k.a Tiger) you can set your own layout with Ukelele: http://scripts.sil.o...item_id=ukelele

If you are runnign Mac OS 10.5.x (a.k.a Leopard) there are less solution, but check this: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=52654 It is in spanish but it has several LatinAmerican layouts.

you can attach a PS2 mouse, not to use it but populate the PS2 ports in order to make them work.

you can use a USB to PS2 adapter for the keyboard.

you can try other "hacked" PS2 kexts.

Could you please give me some links to other "hacked" PS2 kexts? On PM\mail or here in the thread?
PS: if i add a PS2 mouse, it still doesn't work. Only my USB mouse works. I have tried that ;)

Could it be that my motherboard just doesn't support PS2 keyboards & mice in Leopard? Do some motherboards do that?
Or have all motherboards eventually worked with some hacked PS2 drivers?
Is there noone who had this problem? And preferably fixed it?
