Nope ottomobiehl (funky nick) =) there is absolutely NO USB support yet =) go ahead and attach a PS2 and it should work just fine.

It only supports one pointing device at a time though.  My trackball is connected to PS2 (works as a standard mouse), and my gaming mouse connected to serial.  Only the mouse worked.  Though (just to keep things clear) it didn't require me to unplug the trackball or anything.

fortunately i have a adapter.  :-D

not that it's important, but what about being able to use touchpads on laptops (with AROS)? i notice my red hat linux dosen't seem to have support for that. but maybe i didn't try hard to find any.  :-D

No, I've not been able to get the touch pad on my Laptop to work either... not really a problem as I mostly have a mouse plugged in :-)


if the mouse doesn't work for some reason, if you hold down the left amiga key (this might have a strange "Windoze" symble on some keyboard) and press the cursor keys , the pointer will move :-)

Thanks (about the nick), I thought that I was clever when I thought it up but I think that was just the beer talking. :-D

Changed out the mouse and it works awesome!  I am still impressed by what you all have mangaged to do here. :-)  :-)  :pint:

That seems so familiar for some reason.  Is that the same keyboard trick on a real miggy?  (I think it is)
