VoodooPS2 optimized for Snow Leopard, Leopard and Tiger

Let's speek about ALPS. I have it in my Dell 1525.

ALPS.png

1. It works with PS2Mouse driver supporting Tapping and with my version scrolling by two button pressed. In this case it is initialised to Relative 3 bytes mode. I can't understand why Tapping works. There is no any codes about tapping sensor. So I think we need to look into IOHIDFamily.

2. It works also with this PS2Trackpad driver. It initialises hardware into 6 bytes Absolute mode. Tapping is not supporting. Scroll by twofingers works but not smooth. Needs adjustments. But prefPafe is useless.

The VoodooPS2PrefPane is written for Synaptics. I just tryed to remake it for ALPS as follows

	io_service = IOServiceGetMatchingService(0, IOServiceMatching("ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint"));
if (!io_service)
{
	NSRunCriticalAlertPanel( 
							NSLocalizedString( @"ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint not found", "MsgBox"), 
							NSLocalizedString( @"Error", "MsgBoxTitle" ), nil, nil, nil );
		return;
}

But it uses parameters that the driver is not using. They must be implemented. As well as parameters from Apple's Trackpad.prefPane provided by DarwinX.

I know hardware responses X, Y, Z (touch pressure), buttons and tap. I know response from Side scroll bar. So it looks like I can write a driver that can scroll by side bar and with tap support. But... it not works. I have to study IOHIDFamily.

Why tapping works with PS2Mouse driver if used instead?

Seems you are in the same boat with me.

 

In order to get scrolling, the trackpad have to be set in Absolute mode (Intellimouse Mode on Linux) using that "Magic Sequence"

Well that magic sequence does not match for us, so at least in my case with actual voodoo driver, trackpad does not work at all since is not proper initialized, however it works in normal mode if absolute stuff is removed, but no scroll of any kind.

 

Main problem IMHO is that we use an very old apple driver that is not up to date with the hardware we have, definitions are very old, and if you try to port latest stuff from Linux you get stuck b/w old/new.

Your model (E7: 0x73, 0x02, 0x64, E6: 0x00, 0x00, 0x64) may be easy implemented. Look here

	#define NUM_SINGLES 11
static int singles[NUM_SINGLES * 3] ={
	0x33,0x2,0x0a,
	0x53,0x2,0x0a,
	0x53,0x2,0x14,
	0x63,0x2,0xa,
	0x63,0x2,0x14,
	0x73,0x2,0x0a,	// 3622947
	0x63,0x2,0x28,
	0x63,0x2,0x3c,
	0x63,0x2,0x50,
	0x73,0x2,0x50,
	0x63,0x2,0x64};

Your new compilation works in Tiger after correcting dependencies. Not 9.0.0 but 8.0.0.

I have Synaptics on that notebook. And the driver gives toooo slow mouse movement. Resolution?

Also can't check here special keys cause there are not here.

Yeah in the Apple trackpad pane set mouse speed to max, then it works real smooth (it's because of the new resolution implementations).

I updated the sources with new VoodooPS2Mouse, VoodooPS2Keyboard and VoodooPS2Trackpad Info.plist's for Tiger, thanks for pointing this out that I missed this. :P

Your latest development has iTunes multimedia keys properly implemented and the scrolling appears to be smoother and possesses the tapping functionality. Thanks.

Yes, we are in the same boat, I just have ALPS 73,2,a, slightly different. Not sure that is does matter.

I think that this driver has new (not Apple's) initialisation sequence that is good enough because I see all needed hardware responses (x,y,z, buttons and tapping). I just need to write utilisation for its. And add your model in the list.

Now I think that tapping in mouse mode works by hardware protocol. If so no need to think about. There is other protocol in absolute mode.

Well I think it does matter, my model 73 2 64, has diff initialization, and does not work at all with voodoo driver, in your case at least you get something...

Hi,

 

I may have missed something, but I lose my voodooPS2 configuration everytime I reboot. For sure, I may have missed something, but I don't see what.

 

Help is welcome :P.

 

My computer is an Asus 1201N and my trackpad is an VoodooPS2Trackpad: Synaptics TouchPad v7.2 (it's what I see in my dmesg).

 

That's all :).

@Slice: I examined the Synaptics code some more and you were right.

It gets the value override from the Info.plist for the divisor (speed divisor) and inside the Info.plist it was still 23 instead of 1.

I modified the speed in the Info.plist to 1 and now it starts faster (and works right, even before login).

It may be a good idea though to make the resolution customiseable inside the Info.plist as well as the VoodooPS2 prefpane.

I will probably work on this later (when I have the time).

It may also be a good idea to expand the prefpane to also work for the other 2 trackpad classes (I may do that later too).

I made a version that is good enough for me:

Keyboard supports multimedia keys.

ALPS trackpad supports tapping, sideScrolling and is affected by DarwinX Trackpad.prefPane.

 

THe KiNG

For you Keyboard will print all scancodes, not only extended, after you press PrintScreen. Second press stops logging.

At my keyboard PrintScreen = 0x2a (down)_0xaa (up) but not 0x37 as in the driver :unsure: May be you change the key (logScan) to some other unuseful code.

And also for you debug version of ALPSTrackpad. It prints into kernel.log every touch to trackpad.

I see my getStatus differ from your

Jan  2 22:38:48 MacBook kernel[0]: [ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint] getStatus(): [15 01 0a]
Jan  2 22:38:48 MacBook kernel[0]: [ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint] getStatus(): [11 01 0a]

 

Debug version

VoodooPS2Controller.kext_DEBUG_Snow.zip

 

Full project with sources and binaries for Snow. Sorry Andy, I forget to apply your changes for Tiger.

VoodooPS2_Slice.zip

 

TODO

SideScrolling assumes panel size of 950x720. Thus x>900 = VScroll, y>600 = HScroll. It will be better to use VoodooPS2.prefPane settings that the driver understand, for example TopEgde, RightEdge.

Tapping uses information about pressure but settings FingerZ is not used. Dunno what is it.

I cancel twoFingerScrolling, it is not needed when I have sideScrolling.

Sticking is not implemented.

Hi Slice, thanks for the work, here is my test info.The smoothness and acceleration plays well, can be effect by the prefPane setting. side scroll speed out of control, it is too fast..Could click but no drag.

I rebuilt (and slightly rewrote) VoodooPS2 for Snow Leopard, Leopard and Tiger.

This does not need a nub so delete AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext before install (Don't delete on Tiger though).

The nub is built directly into the VoodooPS2Controller.

For Tiger the nub is dropped because it is present allready in AppleACPIPlatform.kext's plugins.

I also implemented Slice's multimedia keys fix (working now) and the high resolution fix (2400 dpi for Synaptics).

NOTE: If you have a Synaptics touchpad make sure to set the speed to high prior to installation (in Apple Trackpad prefpane).

The speed of the Synaptics touchpad now starts on max (new fix).

The tapping function for ALPS should work too now...

Happy X-Mas to everybody too and a happy new year. :D

 

Download including sources:

Or download below...

The built products are under build/Release (Tiger/Leopard)

Hi, Andy. Way to go. B.t.w. how to check what kind of trackpad my laptop is? I got PS/2 in everest on windows. And cannot get the 2-finger scrolling working using Voodoops2. How can I get this function working? It's really useful while browsing webs and read books.

 

P.S. I installed but only keyboard is working the trackpad isn't working. I installed the panel but came across this error shown below. Any idea?

And I can get my trackpad incomplete working(no scrolling) by delete trees of ALPS GLIDPOINT or both of ALPS GLIDPOINT and SYNAPTIC TOUCHPAD. As shown below.

Not working using this setting.

Working with this.

Hi Slice, thanks for the work, here is my test info.The smoothness and acceleration plays well, can be effect by the prefPane setting. side scroll speed out of control, it is too fast..Could click but no drag.

Side scroll speed is controlled by this panel

Dragging is not implemented.

It may be a good idea though to make the resolution customiseable inside the Info.plist as well as the VoodooPS2 prefpane.

I will probably work on this later (when I have the time).

It may also be a good idea to expand the prefpane to also work for the other 2 trackpad classes (I may do that later too).

It will be good if you do this. Try to find ServiceMatching better then by name for prefpane works with any trackpad.

I am not clever in Objective-C so prefPane is for you.

Also it will be good to make Calibration procedure.

Hi.

 

I tried to load synapticsconfigload with no success.

 

I've got

 

localhost:~ VMonHeros$ /Library/VoodooPS2/synapticsconfigload ; exit;

synapticsconfigload(265) malloc: reference count underflow for 0x20000f300, break on auto_refcount_underflow_error to debug.

synapticsconfigload(265) malloc: reference count underflow for 0x20000f4c0, break on auto_refcount_underflow_error to debug.

logout

 

So... No configuration save.

 

Any idea ?

Maybe defining

setProperty(kIOHIDScrollResolutionKey, (100 << 16), 32);

like in synaptics could make scrolling slower. (higher resolution=>slower scrolling). 1800 works nice for me.

In case it might be a general problem with SynapticsTouchPad, I would like to report that I am using the VoodooKeyboard in this topic and I couldn't find a way to control Touchpad. If I don't use a usb mouse, I can control Touchpad from "Mouse > System Preferences"! "Touchpad" is trying to find a magic trackpad (: Everything is working though.

 

Also, I would like to know if there is a way to remap a non-standart key in the keyboard to use on OSX. I have a MediaSmart button in my HP, I would like to use it on OSX. Is it possible?

Yes, it is possible.

Take my version of VoodooPS2Keyboard from post #62.

Switch on logging by pressing PrintScreen.

Look into kernel.log and remember what key = what scan sequence.

Correct the driver for these scan codes.

Guys, thanks for all your shared input and work, please can there be some labelling on the releases (perhaps revision or dated) because I am lost as to which version is latest and which to try out on my Dell Mini 1011 (10v) that might work for both keyboard and ALPS trackpad? Thanks!!!

Hey Andy!

It seems your driver as well as my version is not interesting for people.

Dear Slice, why do you say that? Is it because of my request to just have some revision on the drivers people are kind enough to release/post here? On the contrary; this shows interest to know exactly what versions we are testing and report back! Besides, New Year's partying is not over yet, some of us may still be drunk wink_anim.gif

Also as above view. I have interest in it, just finished my final exams a few days. So I hope you and Andy or other people develop this project. I like your way about the side scroll, and it is more native for ALPS trackpad I think. Another thing I do not have much more knowledge for developing, what I can do is keep testing for the driver.

 

Regards!

 

Edit:

@ivik, I change the valve you recommend and it works perfect, but the side scroll is out of control the speed properly, even with the prefPane setting.
