I just picked up one of these in ps/2 off of craigslist about 2 hours ago. I got it for 15 bucks. Needless to say I'm pretty damn happy right now :) .

Hi guys, I got one for 50 EUR shipped. Problem is that it uses an ADB port, someone has done something with a trackball and ADB? I know there are a lot of converters to USB but they are for keyboards and not for mouse...

Hasu's TMK firmware should handle a mouse or trackball correctly.

Worst case you might have to modify it to work standalone without a keyboard, but you've got something to start with.

Update: I've since done a similar conversion using TMK's "onekey" firmware for an old PS/2 opti-mechanical Microspeed (a.k.a CST).

I bought the ADB variant lately too and will do a converter when I have some spare time.

Did you happen to make a converter for your ADB variant? I got another dt225 lately and I'm not sure what variant I got. I'm curious if it's the ADB variant.
