VoodooPS2 Trackpad physical buttons don't work

It really depends on the model of TrackPad: Alps, Elan, Synaptics, etc. Try and identify the hardware in order to target the most appropriate driver. The manufacturer's technical documentation is usually a good starting point. Then, there are other things like device ids extracted from IOReg or Windows Device Manager.


I've noticed that recently, Acidanthera's VoodooPS2 has some weird issues with Synaptic trackpads. Here's a issue related to this: https://github.com/acidanthera/bugtracker/issues/890

I've also noticed though that these trackpads tend to work over SMBus as well anyways, and work with VoodooRMI + VoodooPS2. This combo works better than both Rehabman's and Acidanthera's VoodooPS2 on these trackpads in my experiance.

I tried the Rehabman version without success. The physical buttons and the gestures didn't work. Instead with the latest VoodooPS2 the physical buttons don't work but I have all gestures workly perfectly.

Nice. I have got to test this, because I have a ThinkPad with a synaptics trackpad and with the current Acidanthera kext the dead zone on the edge of the trackpad is unusually large. Also, I want to implement YogaSMC and it doesn't work when using the older version of voodoops2 by rehabmna (instant crash on boot)
