Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

That gold in the recess all the way around was neat! Along with your desk, it looks like a million bucks :)
Good job on restoring. Really gives me the urge of hunting one down :roll:

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Behold! This was by far the most time consuming 'build' ever. I started resembling this thing at 9 am. It is now 4:30. I encountered a problem at nearly every step of the process. Well worth it though. It's.been my dream to own one of these ever since Chyros did his review. IMG_2869.jpgIMG_2870.jpg...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I am personally eager to test the QMK on the model F when I modify the layout to my liking - it's not that I really _need_ it. I just like to tinker with things. But people should not be scared off by thinking you have to do all kinds of pcb-shorting and flashing to get the keyboard stable and worki...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

While it is cool that there are options and continious development software side. The default xwhatsit is perfectly fine, no issues at all for daily usage - so you should have no worries. On both my boards the threshold was set and forget in xwhatsit software. I haven't had the need to adjust anythi...

If you're not scared to open it and reach the reset pads of the controller I'd suggest you to test the qmk firmware from Andrei and see if his autocalibration is more reliable?

Let me know.

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

There are no keycaps on the board. Is it okay that I'm connecting the keyboard to the computer before all the keycaps are installed, or is that itself the problem? Chris Hi Chris! You are correct. When there are no keycaps, all the flippers will rest on the pcb giving you pressed keys all over. If ...

Oh. Aren't you bothered by the asymmetry with respect to the thumbs' home position? I would move meta to the new key and put something else on the old, either level-3/"altgr" or control. My thumbs seems to move along the spacebar to get to the closest key anyways. But it sounds like a solid plan - ...

Does anyone have any comparison notes for Ellipse keycaps vs Unicomp keycaps? I'm interested in HHKB style front-printed keycaps. Unicomp's custom keycap service estimates $60, and over $150 priced out with extra Ellipse keys. I know the sub-dye quality is going to be an improvement, but what about...

Though I tend to use that area of the space bar. But I never use the area where the extra modifier on the right could be.

Re: Do 'flat' or low profile keycaps exist for IBM buckling spring?

If you don't need the extra keys, you could always remove the keys and barrels in these positions giving you the clearence you want. Other than that, the flattest and most low profile bs caps must be the model m two piece caps running with the hat off. Took out some caps to give you an example On a ...

Thanks for your suggestions. I was able to build the AUR package, but all that happens when I run `ibm_capsense_usb_util` is a dialogue box pops up saying `error: couldn't open device`.
Have you tried running is as root?
