anyone can say anyting about using USB Keyboard with PS2 mouse? I have to keep the (old) PS2 K/b plugged in or the mouse is not recognised. Bit fed up with having 2nd k/b under desk doing nothing; i'd rather hide it away in some dark storage cupboard, what do you think?

Does anyone know how to make extra keys on Logitech S510 work? S510 and S530 are same except that logitech made S530 for mac and charged a lot. Installing the LCC driver for S530 does not pick up S510. I am wonder if someone know if the LCC can be tinkered with by modifying any kext or info.plist file or anythings. The usual keys work okay. But many of the function keys and zoom, rotate, home, etc cannot be used.

I've looked all over the forum for help on my acer's trackpad problem, it seems pretty unique. I have tried to install a variety of Leopards like atikos, leo4all, kalyway...i succesfully installed leo4all, but ran into the looping problem. I booted up from the dvd and erased the drive in the disk utility to start again from scratch and maybe even install the jas 10.4 tiger and to an update to leopard....but after the erase my trackpad stopped working. I mean EVERYWHERE, i even tried a vista recovery cd and no trackpad....just keyboard.....is it a bios thing? what should I be looking at to figure out the problem...?

any help would be greatly appreciated

Have an annoying issue that has just come up. I was running Kalyway 10.5.2 using a Logitech MX5000 Wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard has some extra buttons which, not all worked, but at least the volume control and play/pause worked. After running the Kaly 10.5.3. combo update I'm no longer able to use these buttons..prior to the update I did backup my Extensions folder and did a recovery of it after the upgrade...any ideas???

First off I just wanted to say how awsome this forum is.
Anyway on to my issue I am a complete noob with this so bare with me

I am attempting to install OSX leopard on my pc and get to the part of the install that asks what language I want but my mouse and keyboard will not work.

I have read many of the posts in here but correct me if I am wrong but most of them seem to be issues after install.
my issue is during, will the steps here work during install as well....

Hi, I am a complete newbie at the whole thing so please forgive me if I say sth silly. I downloaded the JaS 10.5.4 Client/Server release, Created a partition with diskpart and set it active, booted in the installer, made the proper (at least I think so) choices in the customization menu, and installed Leopard. I have a PS/2 keyboard and usb mouse but the mouse is connected to the PS/2 port via an adaptor. During the install of Leopard, both the keyboard and the mouse were working perfectly. When the install completed and asked for a reboot, after showing the intro video, It popped a message "Before you begin..." informing me that i have to connect a keyboard. Neither the mouse works. I read some topics here and tried to follow that. I booted from the DVD again and in the Installer I ran the terminal, but i don't have an Extensions directory in my Library directory. Only an Extensions.kext file. In other topic it says sth about deleting this file with rm, but when i try to do that, it says "read only file" and when i use the prefix sudo, for super user, it says "sudo: command not recognised". Can you please tell me what should I do? Thanks a lot and sorry for the trouble.

I am having the same issue on my hp dv6775 laptop but with the keyboard. After the Leopard intro movie it prompts you to connect your keyboard and won't let you go further. The keyboard works fine during the install, however. So I am unsure what I am leaving unchecked driver-wise that would cause it not to detect.

I just installed the 10.5.5 combo update and my Dell Inspiron 1525's keyboard and mouse stopped working. Only external USB mouse/kb work as of right now. Any idea on how to fix it? I'm still relatively new to this whole scene.

Thanks.

I fixed this problem with these files:

I just used the kexts that were related to getting PS/2 working.
