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

Recommended Posts

Thank you very much. It works perfect. The only 'thing' is Trackpad settings don't working (it saws trackpad not found and it is searching for bluetooth trackpad). It doesn't matter, I don't need it. So thank you very much!

Edit: trackpad settings worked after patched DSDT

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 have a physical Fn key on my keyboard (Lenovo Yoga 700-14isk). Some of Fn+F1-12 work for any configuration of the kext, but not all of them - e.g. F11, F12 for brightness don't work. If I set fn keys mode to 2, then Shift-Caps+F .. works and maps to correct functions, but Fn+F.. work as before. Is there any way to use Fn insted of Shift+Caps in mode 2?

Scroll Acceleration modes: (v3.8 or later)
There are four modes of acceleration for scrolling in my driver, which can be set by editing the plist entry "2FScrollAccelMode" for 2f scroll and "EdgeScrollAccelMode"for Edge scroll.
They are:

  • Optimized Acceleration (mode 0) : This is optimized mode which works best across all the touchpads same.
  • Fixed acceleration (mode 1) : This mode has fixed acceleration/speed and varies only with scroll speed value.
  • Extended acceleration (mode 2) : Its an extended version of optimized mode with more acceleration.
  • Super acceleration (mode 3) : This mode reflects the acceleration of your fingers and works based on that. It doesn't depend on scroll speed values from Trackpad prefpane but you can use it extend the speed even more for high resolution touch pads.
  • Super Extended acceleration (mode 4) : This is same as mode 3 but extends the acceleration.
