Cypress PS2 Trackpad kext

Recommended Posts

XPS 13 9360 Full-HD Intel i7-7500u on Sierra 10.12.6 here.

 

I have completely removed all vanilla PS2 kexts from SLE and Clover and restarted to make sure that they are gone. No input from trackpad and keyboard.

Then I installed the 0.7 kext from the first post and the prefpane from github, refreshed kextcache and rebooted (multiple times).

 

Weirdly I only have the basic functions (pretty much like rehabmans kext) and when I open the cypress settings I get "ApplePS2CypressTouchPad not found".

 

Cant find the debugging kext from your first post. Any solution?

Hi,

 

As already said on last message, the latest version of the code has been severely truncated and modified in order to be sierra compliant (regarding applePS2 sources and Rehabman's sources that has evolved, which is normal), which means lots of features are missing, like using the prefpane.

Actual features are quite limited to : click to tap, drag&drop/selection pressure, 2 fingers scrolls, 3 tap lock selection, 3 and 4 fingers swipes up and down gives explode windows mode (current app windows or all windows depending up or down). left and right the workspace/widget balancing.

Since the prefpane does not communicate with the kext for now, you can only modify some values via editing manually the VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext/Contents/Info.plist.

Sources on the github can be compiled again on your computer, if someone as some time and some dev skills, I would be happy to answer his questions about the code or how the cypress chip works. but unfortunately, I've been really busy, and don't really know when I'll be available to work again on the sources.

Again, If someone wants some infos about the code and wants to work on it, just PM me.

 

Cheers,

Any idea on the sensitivity?  Between the trackapd only working as a mouse and getting random freezes all the time, i finally gave up and just put windows on my machine, but would love to try again.

 

The multitouch did work on my XPS 13 L321X, but it wouldnt ignore my palm, and just putting my finger on the pad would act as a click.  Is it just a case of changing some of the values of the info.plist to decrease sensitivity?

      hi to all There is a touchpad elan1000 but attempts to make the work unsuccessful. Help please solve the problem
    • By M3G4DR01D
      Hello everyone, I have an Asus gl502vmk (i7 kabylake + GTX 1060 6 gb) laptop and I tried all the patches/kexts to get the brightness with fn keys/touchpad (I2C ELAN 1200 works with VooDoo I2C kext v1.0 but no gestures/preference pane)/Keyboard backlight to work but no success so far, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
      [EDIT] (10/04/2018)
      Battery status now works, thanks to @RehabMan turned out to be incorrect SMBIOS (used iMac instead of Mbp) lol, but it drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours while on standby (all apps quited!), on windows 10 it lasts 4 - 5 hours, and on linux it lasts 6 ~ 7 hours!)
      And with VoodooI2C v2.0.1 + VoodooI2CHID kext and patched DSDT, the touchpad is now detected in the sys pref pane but still no input.
      Sound works with VoodooHDA v2.9.1, but the only issue is that the jack sense isn't working (the output device doesn't auto switch to headphone when connected)
       
      [EDIT 2] (11/04/2018)
      The system brightness now works thanks to @onejay09 but I have no brightness slider, and there are 4 extra brightness levels (brightness stops increasing after 12 levels)  and the brightness keys are not mapped correctly, plus the brightness decreases when I plug in the ac adapter, then increases if I unplug it???, the brightness level isn't also saved after reboot.
      battery still drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours, even with brightness at 50%, so apparently it is a power management issue).
      and I also have shutdowns while in sleep mode (I tried darkwake=10 and darkwake-0 and darkwake=no)
       
      P.S. I have uploaded my new report files, thanks!

      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

      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.
