ELAN and FocalTech (Smart Touchpad) driver Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi EMlyDinEsH,

 

Thank you for the great Touchpad driver. I'd like to report a Bug from my T440s with Synaptics Clickpad, OSX 10.11.6, Clover Revision 3811.

 

Whats working:

Pointing, 2fScrolling and 2,3,4,5 Clicks works quite well.

The 3 Finger Swipe upwards is the only gesture which i can use. 

The 2 Fingers zoom gesture is working

 

Whats not working:

All other swiping gestures are not working on my Laptop, so i cant use for example the 3 fingers swipes except the one mentioned above.

 

I attached u the system.log and the ioreg.

 

Greetings,

I'd like to submit another Bug:

 

Sometimes the Touchpad pointing stops working. i'm able to use the clicks, but the mousecursor stops moving. system.log says this:

 

 

20.11.16 11:23:30,000 kernel[0]: STD :: Data timeout for scroll acceleration -1088281167 ns.

20.11.16 11:23:30,000 kernel[0]: STD :: Reconnecting the touchpad ........
20.11.16 11:23:31,000 kernel[0]: STD :: Synaptics touchpad found.
20.11.16 11:23:31,000 kernel[0]: STD :: Touchpad enabled.

 

looks like it has something to do with scrolling. i have a customized touchpad config.plist. i attached it to  with the complete system.log.

in the touchpad config plist the swipes are deactivated as they are not working on my system (see post above)

 

My System:

 

 T440s with Synaptics Clickpad, OSX 10.11.6, Clover Revision 3811.

 

 

Thanks for reading (-:

Hi,

im using your latest (4.6.5) kext with my ASUS UX305FA. There are some bugs that already mentioned by everyone, like sierra's trackpad.prefpane that doesn't work, can not call mission control/launchpad/etc, capslock problem, etc.

 

but another problem is, i cannot manually change 2 fingers tap to do right click from plist. if i do so, then 2 fingers tap will stop working at all.

 

i also tried 10.11 prefpane and checked "tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click", but nothing happen

 

 

I'm having the same issue.  I would like to change 2 FingersTapping to do 21 (Right Click).  This doesn't seem to work. Did you find a solution? 

 

For now, my solution:

1. Use the latest beta (4.7 beta 3)

2. Use elcapitan trackpad.prefpane

3. Use ioio and launchdaemon method to keep the settings after reboot

Hey EMlyDinEsH, 4.7 Beta 3 finally got Launchpad, Mission Control, etc. working on my ASUS X555LB-NS51.  Thanks!

 

There is a problem I am experiencing, however: finger tapping doesn't work until I open the trackpad prefpane.  And after I open the prefpane, only 1-finger tapping seems to work.  Two+ finger tapping seems unresponsive.

 

I am on 10.12.1.  Thanks for your work!

I'm using the version 4.2 of your driver and one feature that doesn't seem to work is:

When I go into Accessibility Preferences/Mouse and Trackpad/ and check

"Ignore built in trackpad when mouse or wireless trackpad is present", it has no effect. When my mouse is plugged in, the trackpad is still active.

I'm on El Capitan 10.11.3

 

Thank you for all your great work on this driver

Hi mate! I love your work and I have been using your ApplePS2SmartTouchpad kext on my ASUS X550LD which sports an Elan touchpad quite happily, with ever gesture working, and it works beautiful. My only complaint is that sometimes it simply won't load, and keyboard and touchpad become unusable. A reboot fixes that. This problem that I described only seems to happen with OS X Mavericks, after Yosemite your kext never ever fails. I want to stay in Mavericks for many reasons, and I would love if you could look into that.

 

The main reason I am posting here is because of another hack of mine:

 

 

 

Lenovo Thinkpad L420 with which I used VoodooPS2 Controller RehabMan fork and many others and they work well, but 4 out of 5 times it simply won't load, and I have to reboot. As you understand this is not really an acceptable situation. So I decided to use your kext, and it works ( I am on OS X Mavericks by the way)   :D

 
It loads every single time, and it loads 4 out of 5 times after a sleep cycle, which is so much better than Voodoo
Thing is, the touchpad doesn't really function perfect and the keyboard simply stops working sometimes. Every 1 finger, 2 finger and 3 finger gesture works. I assume by the size of the touchpad that is not worth to have 4 finger action. Problem is, sensitivity is low, and the mouse seems to be a bit unprecise and unresponsive. There also seems to be a big deadzone, near the edges of the touchpad. The left and right buttons only respond when you click on the far end with a lot of strength and the function of tapping to click either with one or two fingers works really terrible (this didn't happen in Voodoo).
Here goes ioreg with v4.6.5
 
 
 
I wonder if you can do anything about this. Thanks 
 

 

 

Could you PM me for a debug session ? 

 

I'm having the same issue.  I would like to change 2 FingersTapping to do 21 (Right Click).  This doesn't seem to work. Did you find a solution? 

 

Working on a fix. Will be fixed in next build I will upload tomorrow. 

 

hello

https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8285-refined-alps-touchpad-driver/page-37

 

i found this kext for ALPS has make the Touchpad prefpane  loads on Sierra and setting are saved.

 

can we learned form this kext?

 

Thanks for sharing, I know about this, but currently I am working on my own prefpane instead (still early). Will take a look at that approach also if possible.

My driver does not support that.

Prefpane still acting strange, will try to find a good solution asp. For now, we have to use workarounds. Also try adding prefpane to startup items and see as some users said it works like that.

 

Thanks
