[Kext] VoodooPS2 support for Elan touchpad

Recommended Posts

Hello Elan PS/2 touchpad users!

 

SmartTouchpad kext was decent until Voodoo came with Magic Touchpad integration. Since then our friends with Synaptics PS/2 and I2C touchpads had much better support for their touchpads.

 

Therefore, I have ported Elan support from Linux kernel into VoodooPS2 so that now Elan PS/2 touchpad can also emulate magic touchpad and it means it can support all native macOS gestures, including tools like BetterTouchTool!

 

Why this is not included in VoodooPS2?

Because the kext has to be tested first. It works well for me (asus laptop), but I would like to hear feedback from more users, from more devices. Both if it works and if it doesn't. Once it is confirmed the kext works well, it might be merged into VoodooPS2 main project.

 

What should work?

Actually, everything. Basic touch, two finger scroll, multitouch, three and more fingers gestures, apple touchpad settings panel - everything.

 

How to install:

Just like normal VoodooPS2 controller - just copy the kext to Clover/OC (and add appropriate entries to OC config in case you use OpenCore). If you already have VoodooPS2 controller - just replace the file with this release.

Special thanks to: Kishor Prins and whole Voodoo Input team

Please leave feedback even if it works, it will help me to merge it into official Voodoo PS2.
