Hi guys !

Download version 7

If you're using myHack method, put VoodooPS2Controller.kext in EE, otherwise use kextwizard to install to SLE

Put VoodooPS2Daemon in Usr/Bin

Put VoodooPS2synapticsPane.prefPane in Library/PreferencePanes

Update permission with myHack or kextwizard.

Reboot

hi there,

i installed everything just how you told me to,

i rebooted after updating permissions with kext utility, i tried out the touchpad but my cursor was doing weird stuff.

when i touch or move the touchpad the cursor went up and down, it also pressed all kinds of buttons when i was only touching the trackpad.

does somebody have an idea on how to solve this ?

Sorry for my bad english, i'm dutch 

 

Greets !

PS. Are the synaptics prefpane settings persistent across reboots. I have to re-set finger z and stabilise tapping on every boot.

 

This is the problem I'm having too - everything else works perfectly though :)

 

What's the trick to making the settings persist?

Try gohmac's applescript here. It sets the value at startup. Post #128 above and #129 with instruction how to do it.

Hello Bpedman,

 

I run Mavericks.

 

I have used the Rehabman merge and everything is working! Except 3 finger touch... it makes a beep though when I three finger swipe, could you maybe merge this with the newest Rehabman Voodoops2? As he has now added support for remapping of the 3 finger doing something.

 

Than you,

hello everyone

 

With the help of Jake Lo and other users, we tried to run the ALPS driver on my Dell E6330:


 

But it did not work, here are the steps I did to install the driver:

1 / Remove ApplePS2Controller

2 / Put VoodooPS2Controller in E / E

3 / Put VoodooPS2Daemon in usr / bin

4 / Put VoodooPS2synapsticPane in Library / PreferencePane

5 / run myHack / myfix (quick)

6 / reboot

 

After that, the trackpad and keyboard does not work.

 

I forgot a few things?

 

I need you.

 

thank you
