ELAN, FocalTech and Synaptics (Smart Touchpad) Driver (Mac OS X)

Recommended Posts

the caps lock on high sierra doesn't behave very well with the current version of Smart TouchPad. Sometimes i press it to turn the caps on but the letters are still lower case and i have to play with the caps lock to get it right. Is there any way i can fix it or should i wait for an update? Attached files in case there is a fix.

Last update: 17 Sep 2017   UPDATE: 17 - 09 - 2017 Just wanted to clear few things about my commitments to community, and development on my projects which has been going slow due to my personal life

@EMlyDinEsH It's been more than 2 years since last update of the kext and about 1,5 year since last update of the first post. Can you finally release the source code, so someone could finally improve

macOS Sierra: some Fn keys do not work and trackpad work only as mouse. Please fix.

Hi. I tried to install it on MSI PE70 2QE with Synaptics P/2 touchpad.

After installation of last beta version and rebooting I couldn’t load OS.


If I try to use older version (beta 3, 4.6.5) I see empty window on system settings -> trackpad.



I tried to install kexts on EFI/Clover/kexts and/ on systemв/library/extensions (with Kext utility). What did I do wrong?

Hello, I have a dell Inspiron 7359 and my trackpad has only basic features. For now, I am using the latest from this post as it is the only one that works. https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9070-a-new-voodoops2controller-for-alps-touchpads-on-sierrael-capitan-1011410115/however, my trackpad isn’t an alps, it’s Elan and when ever I try the ApplePS2SmartTouchpad kext, it kernel panics. I tried the SmartElan one and only the keyboard works. I will attach an problem reporting files if needed. Thanks
