Will our MacNTouch's fit in the new MacBook Pro?

The keyboard looks the same, and I haven't read anything to the contrary. It looks like the USB port on the right side has moved aft slightly.
I know it has to end someday, but hopefully not quite yet!

From looking at the instructions
to remove the upper part of the case, I would say that the chances of a Silver MacNTouch fitting is pretty good. The builtin keyboard looks like it would be removed in a similar manner as in the Oct2005 PowerBook (http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/64.4.0.html

Good... LORD! I knew I was spoiled with my TiBook, but I didn't know keyboard removal was THAT bad for the new machines!
But now I've got a MacBook, with exactly zero chance of replacing the keyboard, even if I came into posession of a MacNTouch. :-/ Maybe somebody will come up with a hack to get better gesture recognition out of the trackpad...

or maybe Steve will quit being a patent whore and start selling FW keyboards again.

My fiance got me a 15" MacBook Pro, using my home-made cable and my MacNTouch - i installed it and it works fine.

XWinder works fine but the Multi-Touch utilities die right after loading

You should get some useful error message from the following procedure:
(As I am with Windows, I can't be sure about details but I know you can do that with Java.)
Create a shell script in the folder where your FW utility has been installed. (You should see there a file named lax.jar.)
Copy&Paste this launch code into a shell script named something like mu.sh and make it executable (i.e. chmod a+x mu.sh)
Code: Select all
SEP=":" # for Mac Os / Unix
java -classpath $CP fingerworks.firmup.UtilityLauncher
I don't know how to do that with Mac OS but the idea is to have a chance to collect error mesages from a command-line console.
I don't know how comfortable you are with this level of details on Mac OS but someone here who is could be more specific about all this...

Now the app launches but doesn't see the macntouch. baby steps huh?

Java and you said exactly the same thing, each with his own words!
* USB J
nterface library is missing
That means that we have to find a jusbMacOSX.so
library file (the Unix flavor of D
The catch is that USB handling may have changed for the version of Java currently installed with Mac OS.
This means that we have to find someone who can dig one step further on this platform...
It's all about LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment and such kind of things
