Topic: Logitech TrackMan Marble FX USB converter (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi guys.

I made a simple PS/2 logitech trackball to USB converter using arduino micro.

It is based on ps2mouse(http://playground.arduino.cc/ComponentLib/Ps2mouse).

Virutal wheel function added for my convenience.

Any suggestions or comments welcomed.

So, I Realize this post is 2 years old, but I tried this out on a CJMCU Beetle (not to be confused with the DFRobot Beetle) and it, well, does not work.

I guess my next step is to figure out how to re-program the 32u4. The only things i changed were the pin numbers, since the 5 and 6 aren't brought out to through-holes on the Beetle. Maybe the pin assignment is different on the (allegedly leonardo compatible) beetle than the micro.

Has anyone else used this project?


quick update - found a Micro and breadboarded this. Seems to work fine.

I don't see any outputs on the serial console though?

On one of my marbles i can't scroll, but that could be a bad switch.

Mouse switches are easily acquired on eBay these days so maybe i will just replace it and see.
