  1. Dell touchpad con gesture?

    Buona sera Il touchpad funziona abbastanza bene però ha 2 problemini: Praticamente col tap riesco solo a cliccare mentre se devo trascinare finestre o selezionare devo fare per forza il click forte.. Poi come gesture ho solo lo scorrimento con due dita e il click secondario.. allego lo screen delle informazioni del touchpad. grazie a tutti
  2. ELAN TouchPad su ASUS K56CB

    Salve, sono un soddisfatto possessore di un hackintosh (ASUS K56CB, i3-3217U-nVidia740M-SSD-8GB di RAM), una sola cosa mi fa ancora preferire Windows a MacOS, il touchpad, il mio PC monta un elan PS2, il problema è che in rete ho trovato solo 2 tipi di kext 1. VoodooPS2 che però non mi fa funzionare ne tastiera ne pad 2. Kext elan fatto da un utente che mediante le gestures simula delle scorciatoie da tastiera che eseguono la funzione, inutilizzabile. Parlando con altri utenti hackintosh ho saputo che per far funzionare voodoops2 in realtà bisogna anche patchare il dsdt (o ssdt,non ricordo) per ottenere delle gestures ottime, il problema è che io non sono minimamente capace, o provato a googlare e ad applicarmi ma non ci sono riuscito. Qualcuno può aiutarmi/fornirmi soluzioni alternative? Grazie in anticipo. (In allegato nel link di drive la cartella EFI in quanto pesa troppo per essere allegata con la funzione del forum) https://goo.gl/UkBgfm
  3. Hi! I am having a problem with my touchpad on my Asus X556U. I did install VoodooPS2 controller which got me to be able to use my keyboard but not my touchpad. I tried ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext but it didn't work and had to remove it to use my keyboard because it blocked it, i did remove VoodooPS2Controller.kext but it didn't work. I tried rehabman version of VoodooPS2Controller and it didn't give any results. Any help ? I attatched gendebug output. debug_2718.zip

  5. Problema touchpad ASUS N552VW

    Ciao a tutti, sono nuovo in questo forum. Ho un problema col mio ASUS N552VW, in breve il touchpad non funziona. Sono riuscito a installare macOS Sierra 10.12.5 col metodo Vanilla e a far funzionare tutto eccetto il WiFi (a breve sostituirò la scheda) e il Touchpad. Il mio attuale Hardware è: Display 4K Intel Core i7 6700HQ Ram 16 GB 2400MHz DDR4 SSD PCIe 512 GB HDD SATA 1 TB Grafica in uso - Intel HD 530 (128 MB DVMT) Grafica - Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M Chipset Intel HM170 Il touchpad del PC è un ELAN1000 su controller I2C (pci8086,a161), ho patchato il DSDT per far si che il controller venisse riconosciuto, e ho installato VoodooI2C.kext in S/L/E, ma il touchpad continua a non funzionare, ho anche provato a eliminare AppleIntellpssI2C.kext e a caricare il VoodooI2C da terminale con kextutil, questo è l'output che ho ottenuto: Non saprei più che cos'altro provare, un altro utente, che possiede il mio stesso PC, è riuscito a farlo funzionare. Ha provato a dare un'occhiata al mio problema ma non è riuscito a risolvere nemmeno lui. Cosa potrei fare? (Ho delle teorie:) 1. Il driver non viene caricato. 2. Il driver viene caricato ma non viene associato all'interfaccia I2C. Spero in un vostro aiuto, In attesa di risposta porgo saluti a tutti per l'attenzione. PS: Allego screenshot di IORegistryExplorer, e su richiesta cartella EFI. http://imgur.com/a/Z5vy9
  6. Hello! I currently am trying to install macOS Sierra on my Lenovo Y50-70 and everything is working fine, including Wifi+Bluetooth, Display brightness, audio and power management. The only issues are: A) this is rather annoying, but can probably be fixed: using 10.9 Mavericks and Rehabmans VoodooPS2, my keyboard is working perfectly fine, FN+Arrow keys for brightness and audio control and the indicator LED on the caps lock key represents the correct status. On MacOS Sierra, this Kext does not work (KP) so I used bpedman's VoodooPS2 which does work, BUT the FN-Key has basically zero function. If I press FN+left/down/right, nothing happens, FN+Up (which should turn the brighness up) generates the letter "b". I know there is a way to modify the button mapping, but I don't know how. Problem B ) My laptop has an Alps Trackpad, but the Alps Touchpad Kext (every kext I have tried) reports an unknown trackpad and refuses to load, therefore I only can left-/right click and move my cursor, nothing more. Is there a way to force it to load or a compatible kext? I would LOVE to at least fix one of the two issues and would highly appreciate every suggestion!
  7. hello I have a HP Probook 450 g2 specs- 2.39 Ghz Intel Core i5 5th gen 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Ram Intel HD Graphics 4400 750GB Hard disk I have installed El capitan from the install screen ,keyboard and touchpad(integrated) are not working but if i connect an external keyboard and a mouse its working audio is also not working even if i connect a headphone Please let me know how to fix this thanks in advance
  8. Hi guys, in my first hack in signature i have a Elan touchpad which work beautifully in OSX, as well as the laptops integrated keyboard. Thing is that for getting the brightness control keys to work i have to press Shift+Caps at the same time once and then it will work, by presing F5 and F6 similar to a real Mac, even across sleep. But upon reboot I have to press again Shift and Caps for it to work again, and that is a bit annoying to have to do every time I boot. Is there any way to create an Apple Script or a kext that would press Shift and Caps at the same time upon successful GUI initialization, like in the user log in part, or even after logging in?
  9. The only kext being injected in Clover is FakeSMC.kext yet somehow VoodooPS2Controller.kext is running when I boot with clover and kexts from S/L/E are being disabled. For instance, my battery and hardware sensors kexts are disabled when I load from Clover but work when booting from Chameleon. I have checked every folder, there are no Voodoo kexts, is there a driver or something injecting Voodoo kexts in Clover, the only changes I've made is in the config file? When I boot with Chameleon all of my kexts from S/L/E are working fine and VoodooPS2Controller doesn't load (as it should). Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong? I have an Asus UX303LN and these are my specs along with my config file. i5 4210u 1TB HDD Intel HD 4400 nVidia 840m [disabled in Clover] FocalTech Touchpad config.zip
  10. DSDT & i2c

    Hello! Thanks to this amazing forum I was able to successfully install OSX 10.10 on my laptop! Everything is fine (more or less) except the Synapstic touchpad. I currently use VoodooPS2 kext in the Clover folder and it enables my keyboard but the touchpad is not on PS2 but on I2C. I tried to fix my DSDT but I get 35 errors so before wasting time I want to ask you: Is the fixed DSDT going to make the touchpad visible by OSX??? Thank you for your patience and time!

  12. USB und Touchpad Problem

    Hallo zusammen, mein System: Fujitsu S760 Intel Core i7 620m Intel QM57 folgendes Problem hab ich: Während der Installation von OS X 10.9.4 funktioniert das Touchpad (mit Multigesture) und USB (2.0) perfekt. Allerdings wenn ich dann das System normal starte, geht kein USB mehr und Tastatur und Touchpad auch nicht mehr. Kext für Tastatur hab ich gefunden, läuft auch. Kext für Touchpad hab ich auch eine gefunden, allerdings funktionieren da keine Multigesture mehr, was während der Installation funktionierte. Für USB hab ich bis jetzt noch keine Kext gefunden, ich find immer nur welche für USB 3.0, was ja aber hier nicht der Fall ist. Gibt es denn eine Möglichkeit die Kexts, die der Installer benutzt, in das normale System am ende einzubauen? Und falls ja, welche wären das dann? Grüße
  13. Salve a tutti vi contatto perché ho un problema con il touchpad dell' ultrabook elencato in fondo( non avevo spazio in firma). Premetto che,quando avviavo la pennetta fatta con pandora, all avvio dell installer di Osx il touchpad funzionava correttamente, dopo l installazione( all interno di Osx) non ha mai funzionato; eccetto 2 volte (non so per quale motivo) dopo che avevo finito di attivare l Intel HD4000, ma al riavvio il cursore rimaneva piantato. Ora dopo aver provato i vari VoodooPS2, Elan,ecc non so più che pesci prendere... La tastiera invece funziona correttamente. Ho provato anche ad eliminare il kext/plug-in ApplePs2Trackpad.kext (come alcuni suggeriscono). Potete aiutarmi? grazie Ps: uso un DSDT patchato, preso da un topic( Mountain Lion ) di un notebook simile al mio (asus k56cm), affinché la geforce rimanga disattivata e non consumi batteria in Idle.

  14. Hi all, I've recently installed Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 on Toshiba Tecra A8. After installation I got not working audio, touchpad, keyboard and not fully recognized video. Could anyone please recommend me kexts which are suitable for this hardware and OS?
  15. Hi, I have recently installed iATKOS ML2 on a Fujitsu Lifebook NH532 laptop. As I could not install on an internal disk, I used an external USB disk. During the installation as well as after the installation, I was unable to use the laptop keyboard and touchpad. For the installation I used USB mouse and keyboard. In the customization menu of iATKOS ML2 I selected the PS2 drivers. This ended up in only having the AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext in the /System/Library/Extensions (not the ApplePS2Controller.kext). I have read in other posts in this forum that I would need both the above kext files. Shall I install the ApplePS2Controller.kext in the /System/Library/Extensions folder? I tried to use the Kext Wizard but it did not work for me. Would you recommend any other tool / method? What about using commands in the terminal? In some other posts I have seen that these two kext files should be placed in the /Extra/Extensions folder. FYI in my installation directory there is no Extensions subfolder in the /Extra folder. Would I need to create it? On the other hand I do have a /Library/Extensions folder. Should this one be used instead? In either way, should I also leave the AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext in the /System/Library/Extensions folder? Any help would be very highly appreciated! Thanks
  16. Hi, I have recently installed iATKOS ML2 on a Fujitsu Lifebook NH532. As I could not install on an internal disk, I used an external USB disk. During the installation as well as after the installation, I am unable to use the laptop keyboard and touchpad. For the installation I used USB mouse and keyboard. What do I need to do in order to enable in iATKOS ML2 the laptop keyboard and touchpad? FYI, during the installation - I used no boot flags (any USB-related flags did not help) - I selected the PS2 drivers from the customization menu; however this did not help the situation I am also unable to select my resolution i.e. 1600x900. I only have the default option i.e. 1024x768 How can I use the right resolution? Many Thanks! Akis P.S. Would anyone know how to overcome the problem of the the internal disks not being recognized during the iATKOS ML2 installation?
  17. Hi all, I've been writing a kext for the cypress touchpad (available on dell xps 12, 13, 15z and others). I'm opening this topic in order to post here future updates/news on it. Sources are based on rehabman VoodooPS2Controller in which I've added support for the cypress PS2 protocol. It can be now considered as stable and basic parameters can now be changed in prefpane. Source code and kext download is available here : https://github.com/ulysse31/voodoops2controllercypress Actual Features: tap to click dragging *New* triple tap draglock (one tap to end) *New* two fingers scrolling (no smooth momentum) two fingers tap for right click 3 fingers tap/window move/select 4 fingers swipe: need to have set on System Preferences => keyboard input shortcut to control+command+[up/down/left/right] 5 fingers lock screen : keep your 5 fingers for arround a second and leave the pad 5 fingers sleep mode : keep your fingers for at least 3 secs Basic Settings can now be changed on : System Preferences => Trackpad advanced settings can now be tested quickly via the new prefpane and then be set definitively on the VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext/Info.plist *New* I do all this for my personal fun, but if some good souls are happy with it and wants to make a donation, you will find the link on the googlecode homepage. Best Regards to all, EDIT: Installation Note: Backup all your actual PS2 related kext ! since this version is forked from rehabman's one: you did not need AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext/ApplePS2Controller.kext and must remove it if you have it or you will crash. UPDATE: v0.7 is out ! Everyone should use this release ! this version makes some bug corrections, working optimizations, and brings now a prefpane for quick parameters testing and allow to know easily which good values to set on the VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext/Info.plist CHANGELOG: v0.7 corrected bugs and added optimizations cleaned a bit the code added kalman filtering (smooth) on multifinger gestures and pressure calc added viable communication between kext and prefpane added a prefpane that allows changing advanced settings in live and quick Info.plist edition all values can now be set with the VoodooPS2Trackpad Info.plist v0.6 changed all taps to use real timers (better finger tapping for 1 to 5 fingers) cleaned a bit the code enhanced 4 fingers swipes scrolling speed can be now scalled on the trackpad preferences 5 fingers lock screen : keep your 5 fingers for arround a second and leave the pad : it launches the OSX shortcut keys for screen locking (Control+Shift+Eject) 5 fingers sleep mode : keep your fingers for at least 3 secs : it launches the OSX sleep shortcut keys (Command+Option(Alt)+Eject) 2 fingers tap right click : 2 fingers tap gives a right click v0.5: Handles Buggy firmwares (v34, v35) that do not follow cypress own documentation (?!) sending 0x04 header packet instead of 0x20 for 4 fingers packets. Now basic settings can be modified on System Preferences => Trackpad ! v0.4: Added tap to click for XPS 15z ( framerate superior on firmware v34 v35 to firmware v11) corrected bug for firmwares superior to v11 that does not handle rate and resolution to 200dpi 8count/mm v0.3 : Added 3 fingers tap/window move Added 4 fingers swipe v0.2: smoothed mouse moves v0.1: first release : basic features => tap to click, 2 fingers scrolling FAQ: Q:Could you add gesture XXXX ? A: Short answer: maybe. Long Answer : For now we are limitated on PS2 dev to voodooPS2 basics, in order to implement all possible gestures, we need to change from IOHIDPointer to a new class (IOHIDFamily ?), but that represents a LOT of work since using a "Upper" class also means get rawer implementation to graphical hooks ... in other words, when someone will find a way to implement a trackpad (whichever material) using a Upper class, others will then follow. it does not means i will not work on that, i will, at least try to, but the workload being quite huge, don't expect it soon (on the next months) from my part at least. If you have in mind a feature, make an issue, and i would tell you if it's possible or not. Q:I have a bug/freeze/hang/whatsoever using your kext, what should i do ? A: Firstly, you need to be sure that you have followed the per-requisites on the installation note on main page, by removing all other mouse related kexts (AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext/ApplePS2Controller.kext), but also other "plugin" kexts like smoothmouse. if you are sure on that, then check your permissions. Finally, if everything is checked, use the following debug kext downloadable here(will keep link updated) Try to reproduce the bug with this kext loaded (you can also build one with the latest sources and use the debug version). Once the bug occurs, you have 2 things to do : write down date(s)/time(s) it occurs extract logs by using the following commands and sent it to me: sudo cat /var/log/system.log | grep -i cypress > ~/cypress_dump.txt You'll have a cypress_dump.txt on your home directory containing the kext logs. Don't hesitate contacting me by the forum (PM or on the cypress topic), by the google issues or even directly by mail. you need to try to explain the bug as much as possible : a link to download your cypress_dump.txt (or put it in attachment) mention the time(s)/date(s) it occured its type (hang, jerkyness, freeze or KP) ? is it at boot ? is it using a specific feature ? Generally, the few issues comes from a untest yet firmware with some feature, since i have a XPS 13 (cypress firmware v11) i cannot see/detect some bugs without the help of the community. I do all this just because i like to code, and i like OsX, so I'll try to do the best i can to get it working on most different computers. Again, if you have a problem, don't hesitate, contact me and send me logs. EDIT 18th June 2017 : BACK FROM DEATH FOR A SHORT TIME : Here is a Sierra version download link, features ARE really LIMITED, since the settings loading (Info.plist/prepane) changed, value are HARDCODED. https://mega.nz/#!VggiUapL!psmojkiZeiVJIgMG5Pvb6QgxT0z35dnjK89VJttBA1k It works under Sierra on my XPS 13, (by the way, Sierra runs quite well on it ^^ ), I DO NOT HAVE TESTED UNDER OTHER COMPUTERS. Cheers all, -- Ulysse31
  18. Elan Touchpad Kext



    Kext for Touchpad Elantec, Laptops, for more info for this kext, take a look here: Elan Touchpad Driver (Mac OSX) - Elan Touchpad - OSXLatitude Forum
  19. Hello everyone, during my install of Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on my laptop (signature), the keyboard, touchpad and trackpad worked fine. Even when I fixed the install, when booting with bootloader on USB to the new install, it worked. But when I reboot without the USB installation media, I come to the login screen, but my keyboard, touchpad and trackpad don't work anymore. So it must have been one on the Kexts, I think. I copied all kexts with contained PS2 in their name froom /E/E/ (usb boot stick) to /S/L/E/ (hard drive) and rebuilt the kext cache, because I use Kernel cache to speed up my boot process. I installed it as proposed in this forum: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=105334 I decided to set my UEFI/BIOS to "Legacy BIOS", so I replaced OSInstall and OSInstall.mpkg by the ones provided the link to osx86.net . I did all he said in his first post, but I used Kext Wizard instead of Kext Utility. (I would prefer to do this in Terminal, but I don't know how to use the command kextcache correctly.) Please help me how to solve this problem. Maybe I just need the correct PS2 Kexts.
  20. Hello, i've installed snow leopard 10.6.7 on my asus eepc 1005ha everything is working fine but i can't enable trackpad multitouch even scrolling. when i go to system settings says there is no touchpad. but it's working. any help would be great
  21. I installed VMware Workstation 8 on my ASUS N71JQ laptop and emulate MAC OSX Lion. Everything is working fine. However, when I try and use gestures (three finger upswipes or left and right) there is no response. I can use the trackpad for normal movement and two finger scrolling but when I go to Preferences it says there is no trackpad found. My ASUS has the ability to detect multiple fingers (three at least) and so I was wondering if there was anyway to carry this ability into my emulated OS X.
  22. Hi, I've been in the process of getting all my hardware working on Lion, but one thing I just can't figure out this strange business with my trackpad. It seems to occur mostly when I move my mouse over some selectable text or something that changes the mouse between an arrow and text selection cursor. My mouse will jump for a second and sometimes input right clicks continuously for a few seconds. I'm using voodooPS2 from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index. ... pic=175372 (Only certain versions of voodoops2 and appleps2 give me any functionality with my keyboard/trackpad, and all versions that i've tried so far seem to give me this same bugyness if they even give me any functionality), and my trackpad is a synaptics (Version 7.5). If I remove VoodooPS2Trackpad under plugins in VoodooPS2Controller I can get regular mouse functionality but then I loose my multitouch of course. Removing VoodooPS2Mouse Instead leaves my trackpad acting with the same glitchy jumps and clicks. Any help figuring out how to fix these glitches without giving up multitouch would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
