Hi,
does anybody know if the following mini touchpad works with the raspberry b+?
It is a PS/2 device with a usb converter.

Thanks,Ben

Looks like it might be worth trying. From the website you linked:
Linux:
Works like standard USB mouse
Automatically starts working when plugged in!
Tapping, Double Tapping, Vertical Scrolling, right tap, drag n drop
No drivers, downloads or discs needed
I have a keyboard-touchpad combo that came with no remarks at all about Linux, but it works fine. (In a previous post I said it was not working, but that turns out to be incorrect. Maybe I had disconnected and reconnected it and upset the driver somehow.)
