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.

Hello, 

I installed the kext and the touchpad works well, the two-finger scrolling alos, but when I want move a window by pressing the left physic touchpad button then move using the touchpad, it does not work.

I can't clic with my phisics buttons if i have a finger on the touchpad.

 

How to solve this problem ? 

Thanks for this good work !

there is another way? i don't have windows installed, maybe linux?

 

Well, I think mostly you will have either Synaptics or ALPS. So, first try the VooodooPS2Controller which has the support for both of them in enabling multi touch to some extent. Let me know after testing with VoodooPS2xx then I can help you
