ELAN and FocalTech (Smart Touchpad) driver Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi Crew,

 

I love your kext, it solved my major tap to click not working problem back when I was using Voodoo. But now, I wanted to know if there's any way to configure sensitivity for this driver. Scrolling is wayyyyy too sensitive, I could scroll through the Bible in one go, I want to adjust it. I'm sorry if I missed it on the page, I'm a little bad at English. Thanks for the kext though!

Hey, I'm a little new on this forum, but just registered to ask for a very specific problem that my laptop suffers when using your kext. I've patched the Brightness Slider on my hack using RehabMan's guide, but then, after what appears to be a correct patching, my brightness keys toggle mute instead of the respective Brightness (Not sure if they did that before the DSDT patch). After further investigation, I noticed that the patching was correct and the keyboard in fact was sending both the mute and the brightness up/down respectively. Is there a way I can force the kext to stop assigning media keys to my brightness keys? (Fn + F2 for Brightness down, and Fn + F3 for brightness up.)

 

Here's some little detail about my hack:

I'm using a HP 240 G5, uses ELAN trackpad, the keyboard came with a Latin American configuration (I can live with it, and Apple awful mapping).

Hi,

big thanks, for the great driver working on Dell XPS15 x521l.

 

I would like to know, how I can change the double-click time in the plist file, because the behavior of this driver is a little bit tricky. If I double click a folder, I have to tap (one click) on the folder first, an then I can double-click in normal speed to look inside. But if I would like to open the folder in normal way, with double click immediately, I have to double-click in very slow speed to open it - this is strange. 

The second problem is the the cursor left or right speed on holding, its very slow...how can I change this?

 

Best regards

Hi guys, I have a problem:


I found a bug with cmd + shift + enter. It doesn't work correctly.


 


left cmd + left shift + enter  -> works bad, not always...


left cmd + right shift + enter -> works great


 


 


Could you fix it please?

Hi I have a Lenovo yoga 500 i5-6200 with a FocalTech trackpad.

 

Issue I'm having is I have 4.7 beta 3 smart touch kext installed. My keyboard is working, mouse is working (little slow but ok). But to get 2-finger scroll to work I have to press CTRL key on my keyboard. Is there any way of getting it working without needing to do that? 

 

I did install the Beta 5 release but my mouse was slower/buggy and same issue. 

 

Shame as otherwise everything else system wise is working excellent on this laptop.I have attached my EFI folder from Clover is that a help? please let me know if you need anything else. A fix would be fantastic! thanks in advance. EFI 2.zip

Hiya all, hope someone can help me out with a small issue I'm having. 


 


I've installed 4.7 beta 5, along with the AsusNBFnkeys 2.6, and although most things work nicely, any shortcuts involving the letter 'P' now don't work...


Oddly enough it seems to only occur if I enable the 'swap windows and alt'/swap them via system preferences. Possibly something lower level hijacks the combo if it involves the windows key?


 


I have installed both drivers to /L/E, and am booting via Clover EFI, latest version. Running macOS 10.13.1.


I have made a number of plist edits for various options, however the issue occurs with the default options (and swapping win/alt via the plist or system prefs).


 


Just wondering if anyone else has this?

Anyone else having kernel panics with this driver? I'm running the latest beta (4.7b5) on High Sierra. I'm using Clover to boot the system. I am getting random kernel panics about once in every 10 reboots. I can reproduce the problem by manually kextloading/kextunloading the ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext I have installed in /S/L/E.

 

I'm also experiencing the cursor freeze bug when using 2-finger scrolling.

EMlyDinEsH: Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help resolve the cursor freeze bug. It is an unfortunate problem in an otherwise excellent piece of software.

Do NOT install kexts to /S/L/E in macOS versions 10.10+. You have two options:

- Install to /L/E and then rebuild cache with 

sudo kernelcache -i /

And then restart. Or

- Install this kext to EFI/Clover/kexts/other and restart. Be aware that some kexts don't work properly when injected by Clover and must be installed to /L/E. It's just a matter of trying and seeing which works best for you. I'm currently using this kext installed in Clover without any problems.

 

You should choose ONLY one option. Do NOT install this kext twice. I recommend installing to /L/E as it is more guaranteed to work. You should be able to fix your problem by running the following in a Terminal window:

sudo cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext /Library/Extensions/
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext
sudo kextcache -i /
