For battery, you have to patch your DSDT.

 

For touchpad, first of all check which touchpad you have. If its ELAN, https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/1948-elan-focaltech-and-synaptics-smart-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x

 

Or else use Voodoo

That's great. 

 

So touchpad is usually easy. Especially our laptop has PS2 touchpad.

 

I think you have Synaptic touchpad. Mine was ELAN so, the link that I shared earlier worked for me.

 

I have a HP laptop with Synaptic. 

I used this Voodoo rather than rehabman's

https://github.com/acidanthera/VoodooPS2/releases

 

Check this out. It has inbuilt gestures and everything and works out of the box.

If this doesn't work, let me know. I'll upload what I'm using on my HP. That should work.

Thank you my friend but are you test it on catalina ? because its the same that I tested it before ! :)

yes, My Hp is at catalina and it works perfectly.

 

Honestly, it was the easiest one to setup. All gestures and everything worked just by placing this kext in Clover.

 

Is your trackpad detected in Preferences? Or it says no trackpad found but it still works. 

I had the above-described issue earlier. What fixed for me was to generate the DSDT again and applying the patches again. I had messed up earlier something which somehow was affecting the trackpad.

 

If nothing works, remove all your DSDT patches and try booting. Then check if trackpad works. If it does then start applying patches one by one.
