ELAN and FocalTech (Smart Touchpad) driver Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi EMlyDinEsH,

 

I also have the same issue on my Asus K43SV. I have tried both v3.5 and v3.3. Still the issue persists.

 

 

Function keys Fn1-Fn11 does not work If i press the function key with them. The OP, has highlighted the keys which originally input the repective alphabets in white. Holding the function key along with the keys OP has mentioned is supposed to input numbers, a substitute by asus for the number pad.

 

Suppose I want to type the word google.com, by default when your driver is installed what I get is g66g3e.c/0 . If i press the function key while typing I get google.com typed in correctly. It makes the inbuilt keyboard unusable. I tried replacing the ps2keyboard kext with original one from myhack, then the touchpad stops working completely. Voodoops2 does not work at all for me. Even after removies acpips2nub I end up getting kernal panics. So I guess I will go back to using my external mouse now. :P

 

So I guess the issue me and the OP has is that the function key is enganged by default, and normal alphabets can be enetered only if I manually press the function key. Any ideas to solve this? Can I do some tweaks in the info.plist, of appleps2keyboard.kext?

 

Thanks for your efforts though. Its good to see a working touchpad. Hope this issue can be solved.

 

Stange, I will try to contact the beta tester who has similar keys and will fix asp. Please wait for some time.

Hi, I've installed 3.5 version and it work very well, thanks.

I'm using the FnKeyApple  (without press Fn key), all keys work except F3 and F4 for adjust Keyboard Backlight, if I install the kext AsusNBFnKeys 2.0, so with Fn+F2, and Fn+F3, I can adjust the keyboard backlight.

 

How can I adjust it without pressing the Fn key? If possible of course.

 

Thank you very much!

Hi EMlyDinEsH,

 

Thank you very much for Elan Touchpad Driver!  Ver. 3.5 works very well on my Asus N43SL (ver.2 hardware).

Hi EMlyDinEsH,

 

Thank you so much for your work on the Elan driver!

 

Running a Samsung NP880Z5E Core i7 here with Mavericks 10.9.1.

 

The Elan driver works well for the most part, but it is not giving me a "right click" capability on the smart pad. I have tried mouse mode, three finger tap, two finger tap, etc. Also have tried changing settings in plist to see if that would have any effect.  It didin't

 

The multi finger taps work, swipes work. It all seems to work except anything that would give me a basic mouse right click.

 

Any help to get the right click working on the smart pad would be very appreciated.

 

I am running Elan driver 3.5. When I try to install the 4.0beta neither the keyboard or smart pad function and I have to use a USB keyboard and mouse to get the system back to 3.5.

 

I am booting off of an external HD via USB port if that matters, using the Chameleon boot loader.

 

Regards,

 

Darryl

If you want a beta tester I can help. Can any kext edits disable the function key being entered with those keys?

I have an issue. My bluetooth usb adapter breaks touchpad and mouse after sleep. Someone else with this issue? I test with  bluetooth usb plugged/unplugged then sleep only works fine without the adapter. Weird problem :)

Sorry, I forgot to mention about the dsdt patch required for the Asus keyboard backlight to work. There is a new version coming next week and i'll add the patch required for the asus keyboard backlight so you can test.

Yes, i've figured out this problem with beta tester. From next version, it will be set to false.
