Trackpad issues

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, folks!

 

I have this nice 15'' Sony Vaio laptop, powered by an I3 CPU with HD3000 graphics (with which i struggled a lot to enable QE/CI, but now it's nice), Conexant audio (I had to give up native HDA and DSDT solution because my DSDT didn't go well with the said HD3000, so i'm using VoodooHDA now) and Atheros/Realtek network (all working). All in all, a rare case of a laptop where everything works without need to replace or swap anything.

 

The only weak spot is the trackpad: it is working, with latest Rehabman's synaptics driver, but it's being recognized as a mouse and only gives me very basic controls. No two finger scrolling, no tap and drag, not even click and drag. That is, it's working but it's barely functional. In verbose mode, i could see trackpad is being recognized as ALPS, so I tried a kext from OSXLatitude that previously worked for me with ALPS, but this killed both my keyboard and my trackpad, so I had to revert to Rehabman's.

 

Any help would be much appreciated, because this laptop is very close to be a perfect win.

 

All the best!


SOLVED!

 

By using the latest version of the OSXLatitude's ALPS driver, the one which is merged with Rehabman's. Now everything smooth as it can be.

 

All the best!

      Hello, I hope I am posting in the right place...
       
      I am having issues with VoodooInput. It loads fine, no errors or KPs, but movement is erratic. It seems when I am moving the cursor with my index finger and then try to click with my thumb, the cursor will shoot to the bottom of the screen, causing erroneous clicks and a lot of headaches. Sometimes it shoots to the top instead. Sometimes it performs as expected. It's unpredictable. 
       
      I have used VoodooI2C + VoodooI2CHID instead, and they work perfectly fine, but unfortunately they cause KPs. Plus, I like that VoodooInput is a singular kext. This is why I am trying to see if there's any way to fix this issue.
       
      Please see signature for my specs.
       
      Thank you.

      EDIT: configurazione completata e funzionante!
      Guida: 
      - Sostituire la vostra cartella Clover con quella in allegato
      - Installare, i Kext in L/E (vedi archivio allegato):
      [VoodooTSCSync (risolve il lag dopo lo sleep); FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext; FakePCIID.kext (questi ultimi due non so se son necessari onestamente)]
       
      Cosa non funziona:
       
      - Scheda di rete wireless Intel integrata, da sostituire
      - Radeon 530
      - Facetime/iMessage
      - Dopo lo sleep, il touchpad ogni tanto impazzisce. Basta soltanto cliccare il tasto sinistro del touchpad e torna a funzionare egregiamente. 
       
      Tutto il resto funziona!
       
       
      Migliorie apportate: 
       
      - Sostituito HDD 2TB (molto lento) con un SSD Crucial (dalle stalle alle stelle).
       
      - Installato Boom2 per l'audio. Costa 10€ ma permette di avere un audio potente come su Windows, super consigliato!
       
      - DA SOSTITUIRE: Scheda Wifi. Aggiornerò il post appena fatto, sto cercando l'opzione migliore. Per ora sto usando un pennino Wifi mini, il TP-Link TL-WN823N v3, che è compatibile con MacOs (i driver li fornisce la stessa TP-Link). Tuttavia credo ci siano opzioni ben più performanti e a un prezzo migliore, io già lo avevo. 
       
      - Sostituito pannello LCD con uno più performante; Il problema di questo laptop è sempre stato il suo display orribile. Pessimi colori, risoluzione solo HD, e angoli di visione penosi. Sostituitelo con il seguente modello e trasformerete questo laptop: 
       
      B156HAN01.1 o B156HAN01.2
       
      Il display in questione ha risoluzione full HD, ha angoli di visione perfetti e colori molto migliori. Davvero un ottima scelta. Il connettore è un 30 pin, io personalmente l'ho preso su Amazon ma non è più disponibile, in ogni caso si trova in giro, basta cercare la sigla. 
       
      ATTENZIONE: Per la sostituzione del display NON SEGUITE LE GUIDE SU YOUTUBE o potreste danneggiare irreparabilmente l'hinge cover! Seguite questa guida:

      The laptop in question: Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 (Model: ZQ3) (refer to the "Spoiler" at the end if you want the machine specs)
       
      "So what are you bugging us for?" Good question, because I am usually an introvert and usually just keep looking for answers but I could not find some. Jumping to it...
      What does not work and I would like thoughts on:
      Bluetooth does not register, used to on previous installs (sorry, I did not pay attention to see if this was caused by me updating to 10.8.5 but that was necessary for the below functions) (It does not work in Debian either - Ignore) LAN and WLAN  - I have found Kexts (somewhere, I think I just lost them... dang it...) for the WLAN but I have yet to try them, nothing for the LAN I know this is cheating but I read that The NDISulator for FreeBSD (HINT HINT) is a port of NDISwrapper for Linux that runs Windows XP network drivers in Linux or BSD Brightness controls work from the middle down on the "Sun" brightness overlay, I got this far from following this: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/ but I am kind of thinking of trying: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/?do=findComment&comment=2214344 . My "magic number" is: 0xF        I used DSDTEditor in Windows, since I figured all the drivers are loaded, to extract the DSDT and compile something that somewhat works... Wake from sleep issue - I tried the above guide for that but I get a no backlit display and I can see that the cursor in the password field is not flashing when I use an external light source, but it will reboot when I press Ctrl + Alt + Power "button" (it is actually a slider) and then also clear my freaking CMOS right down to the clock... yeah I have the ACPI fix implmented and it usually works... DVD Player.app reports that no viable video device was found (personally I don't care about the DVD Player.app problem, just wanted to put that out there for the heck of it) The microphone port always sounds like it is going through a [dirty] guitar effects petal no matter what sliders are adjusted  
      Likely causes of:
      Bluetooth (BCM92046), WIFI (BCM943225HM) - So, I USED TO be able to turn on the WIFI from within Windows then reboot into Mac OS and have it work but I noticed recently that the indicator light for them turns off BEFORE it reboots now. When Windows or Android load, it lights up- "No... really, captain obvious?!"... anyways... working "No really Sherlock!" so OBVIOUSLY, the OS has to activate them... and preferably ignore the wireless switching button For the WIFI module, if you omit the 9 and HM in a search, results appear! Brightness - Will get reset to full "Bright light! Bright light!" when a "Load System Defaults" is applied from within the BIOS settings but like the WIFI and Bluetooth the OS will forcefully take control of it Microphone In sounding dirty - me being lazy with the audio drivers LAN (BCM57760) - I dunno...  when I search it, nothing comes up...  
      "How did you get this far?"
      Update the BIOS, this is oh so very important (refer to the battery section of the "Spoiler" for the reson) PLEASE BACKUP YOUR BIOS FIRST! PLUG THE MACHINE INTO THE AC ADAPTER/CHARGER! DO NOT FORCE THE COMPUTER TO SHUTDOWN NOR REMOVE THE BATTERY NOR UNPLUG IT FROM THE AC ADAPTER/CHARGER WHILE IT IS UPDATING! I WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR BRICKED MACHINES! So it will boot off of the (Niresh) Mac OS X 10.8 with no changes to anything "Awesome" but you may still need at least a USB mouse "Aww" If you have the option to remove the display drivers/kexts otherwise it will not to boot or not display If you forgot this, breathe "You think that's air your breathing?"... anyways... during the bootloader, go into single user mode [ -s ] and follow the on screen instructions to allow for modifying the files. You will want to PREFERABLY create a folder where Mac OS cannot read them and move the IntelHDGraphics Kexts into it You are likely going to need an external USB keyboard as well now that it is installed Now install the described Kexts in the "Spoiler" associated with the hardware to get more functionality and loose the USB HICs  
      Any help pertaining to the Bluetooth, WIFI, LAN, bizarre brightness and wake after sleep backlit display issue would be wonderful... Thank you for your time and I hope that I helped anyone else out with some of their own issues pertaining to the Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 ZQ3 no nVidia with i5 laptop...
      (Attached are non-modified extracted DSDT DSL and AML files "with errors according to DSDTEditor" for reference of the machine with a Phoenix BIOS version of 1.28 (07/20/2011))

      Hey. I found a repository with modified voodoops2controller kext. Finalized it sysctl and kprinssu and the-darkvoid based on the kext from RehabMan.
      https://github.com/syscl/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller
       
      This kext almost like VoodooPS2Trackpad from acidanthera.
      https://github.com/acidanthera/VoodooPS2
      https://applelife.ru/threads/acidanthera-voodoops2trackpad-dlja-synaptics.2944059/
       
      I attach the compiled version.
      https://vk.com/doc183234383_514349114

      P.S. If you try it, then naturally remove other kexts for the touchpad and keyboard and, first install via KextUtility. If it works fine, then remove it from /S/L/E and throw in /kexts/Other
      VoodooPS2Controller modified syscl.zip
      P. P. S.
      I wanted to upload this archive to the forum in the "Downloads" section to where the cupcakes are located, but I didn't see a button to create a theme there. Also I have there is no opportunity to leave comments. Why?
      It would be nice if someone moved this kext there, too.
