  1. nkro

    Very nice converter! works out of the box!

  2. Pkeyb

    Yes it is nice, and works out of the box on Linux. The only problem is to find an Esc key, probably not mapped. The other problem is a price – quite big, especially with added shipping cost, sadly cost much more than keyboard…

      You can remap the keys, https://deskthority.net/keyboards-f2/examples-of-soarer-converter-configuration-files-please-t8477.html#p390537

    The Thinker Boy sent the converter very quickly and it works excellent with my IBM Model M 1395162 Terminal KB. However, there are several keys, specially at Num Key Pad that are incorrectly mapped. Does anybody knows what software do I need to edit/write the converter’s firmware and where to donwload it?
