Topic: ps2 lib: how to get in touch with the ps2 lib author Johnatan Laloz (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

MHz

looks - to me(!) - if there is an irreguality  in the ps2 lib. Send a request to the forum and got one helpful hint for a workaround. looking forward for a reply of the author of the lib Jonathan Laloz  but he didn't respond to the forum. Now I like to contact him directly how can I reach him? The "contact button on the potter project web page is dead  :(

The issue: mouse movement in the 1st quadrant didn't generate aprobiate status change also pressing the middle mouse button

The example code from the lib, slightly modified:

Code: [Select]
#include <ps2.h>

/*
* an arduino sketch to interface with a ps/2 mouse.
* Also uses serial protocol to talk back to the host
* and report what it finds.
*/

/*
* Pin 2 is the mouse data pin --green
/* pin 3 is the clock pin     --white
* Feel free to use whatever pins are convenient.
*/

PS2Mouse mouse(3, 2);
  int old_mouseStatus=0;          //for change tracking
 
void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  mouse.init();
}

/*
* get a reading from the mouse and report it back to the
* host via the serial line.
*/
void loop()
{
  MouseInfo mouseInfo;
  mouse.getData(&mouseInfo);

   if (mouseInfo.status!=8){   //print if status has changed
//   old_mouseStatus=mouseInfo.status;       //save new status 
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.status, BIN);

    //X change
    Serial.print("\tX=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.x, DEC);

    //Y change
    Serial.print("\tY=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.y, DEC);

    //Scroll change
    Serial.print("\tSc=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.scroll, DEC);

    //Left button down
    Serial.print("\tLB=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.leftClick, DEC);

    //Middle button down
    Serial.print("\tMB=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.middleClick, DEC);

    //Right button down
    Serial.print("\tRB=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.rightClick, DEC);

    //Cumulative X position
    Serial.print("\tCX=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.cX, DEC);

    //Cumulatie Y position
    Serial.print("\tCY=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.cY, DEC);

    //Cumulative scroll postion
    Serial.print("\tCS=");
    Serial.print(mouseInfo.cScroll, DEC);
    Serial.println();
//   delay(1000);       //no delay change tracking surpresses continius update
  }
}
