we are an institute of the university of Heidelberg.
We are using Apple Macintoshs G3 with ADB-Bus
We want to work with LINUXPPC in future
and partly are doing so with DR4.
Of course we want to use 3buttonmice on the LinuxPPC MAcs.
but they are very expensive !!!
The MacPointProMouse is about 38.99 english pounds =51 $
by an english distributor
The Contour Mac ADB Mouse is available in Germany for 239 DM == 111 $
by an German distributor
The Kensington 4 Button Bouse, but thats not we want is availabel for 70$
by an German distributor$
This is very expensive , especially if you need 10 such mice !
and a PC mouse is about 10 $
Besides shipping charge is not cheap.
Before spending a lot of money the question is:
WiIl the 3 Button Mouse work with LinuxPPC?
We want three button mice instead of
left and right arrows
Besides we tried soldering our own adapter using wire and tin-solder
So we made a kind of adapter from RS422 (serial MacInterface)
to RS232 a PC mouse
For MacOS we succeeded using a control panel called <Serial Mouse>
But for LinuxPPC several problems occured ==> no satisfying solution
How did you solve the problem
Which 3Buttonmouse do you use
Wherer did you buy it?
