Ok, round 2!-) My modded SpaceSaver works like a charm, absolutely great. It's my daily driver now! But after I knew tmk/qmk firmware now, I must have a custom board. I plan to handwire it, but it will take a lot of time to get the plates, so I will do some testing with a plate sourced from a cheap ...

Wow, your firmware really rocks, very easy to get it running and seems solid as a rock. Is there a possibility to add ps/2 mouse/trackpoint support? Or is it already included and i weren't able to C?
Anyway, great work!

Ok, here we go, I will try to write the important parts down. After all, this is a recycling project!-))) I have couples of damaged trackpoint boards and the MX-Board was bought realy cheap. We did it as a test and planned to build something own later, but it works so find and is so pretty ugly, I t...

Thanks for the infos! I got the TMK stuff working, as PS/2 adapter and OneKeyTest also works. I'll try how it behaves, when I use USART for the trackpoint and INT for the keyboard. The whole for the trackpoint is now in the MX3.0 Board, I will only have to find a way to fix it there!-) And then I wa...

Ok, we made some steps further. I now have a MX-Board 3.0 SSK !;-) If somebody is interested I can post photos where we had to bridge the board. DSC_0020.JPG Now I started my tries with two different trackpoints and the teensy++(got one from a friend!-). I have a working PS/2 Converter with soarers ...

Yes and my techie pointed out, they wouldn't be precise, so i will do it improved right now! And just thinking about moding the old cherry, but how to get it controlled with the trackpoint via usb? The teensy is still on it's way... I will have to wait two weeks for the teensy... Ok, we changed plan...

It's always a small step, which starts even the longest journey. I now got 2 very clean swiss layouted g80-3036 with clear switches. If some of you want one of them(one is almost new), I would sell it or trade it for switches(blue or ergoclears)/keycaps. I may post photos if someone is interested. I...

Wow, thanks for the links. A G80 ssk with trackpoint, yeah!-) That's close to what I want. With a little touch of big blue... I have had a look at the phantom pcbs, but i guess they wouldn't fit neither case!-( I'll measure the cases to see if I matt3o can help me designing plates for them!-) I thin...

Great!-))
Which controller did you use? Do you use the controller that came with the trackpoint?

That sounds good, however I may have found a second way(or i will build two @ once!?-). The USB Spacesaver looks more promising. The wholes for the rubberdome keycaps are much smaller and rounded, so i could try to cut the plastic plate there. Will dissassemble it and have a look. A pitti that the c...

Yeah, now I know, I will have to go with a lasered alu plate. In the middle where the hole for the trackpoint is, it would break apart... I think I may leave the trackpoint on the base plate(where it is now). Only downside: I will have to use flat MX3.0 Keycaps, or the trackpoint may be to tall... H...

Another MX / Trackpoint project

Hi Guys, this is my first post here and it will hopefully turn out, that it's also my first mech build/mod? First, I have to mention how impressed I am of all the competence I found here! Great work wherever I look! Now, about me and my keyboard problems: As a coder, I have to use my keyboard a lot....
