Refined ALPS TouchPad driver


Dr. Hurt

Recommended Posts

Installed attached kext on Clover. First boot gave me a KP.

 

Trackpad (AUI1714 on Win) still doesn't work at all (no trackpad installed on system prefs).

 

Keyboard audio volume special keys work again, COMMAND and ALT keys are swapped and CapsLock has an intermittent behavior.

 

Delete the kext from /S/L/E and run kext utility: http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/Kext-Utility.shtml

to rebuild caches. Keep the kext in the Clover folder.

 

Boot in verbose and watch for ALPS messages: version, driver loaded

 

KP happened once, then the next boot was okay?

 

CapsLock will be fixed in next release.

In the keyboard info.plist, there's an option to swap keys.

I've been using Kext Wizard to install kexts and rebuild caches.

Kext is already on Clover/Kext folder.

It's pretty impossible, system loads too fast. Is there another way to do that?

Yes, the system loaded ok in the second attempt.

After boot, open terminal and type: sudo dmesg

V7 on Dell Latitude E7470

 

causes KP on Sierra but not El Capitan. But it doesn't detect the touchpad or trackstick

 

Nov  6 18:17:30 localhost kernel[0]: ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint::identify: Found ALPS Device with ID E7=0x73 0x03 0x28, EC=0x73 0x01 0x13

That was faster than I though. You are awesome :D

 

1- I'll fix the speed issue

2- The OS X part of the driver can only handle 2 touch points, so no problem.

3- 4-finger gestures work the same way as 3-finger, but they are not assigned to actions by default. Look at first post.

4- Setting an area for a right click would just add unneeded complexity. Leave it out for now.

5- I don't know what thumb rejection is :/ 

 

ALPS V7 test:

- Merged V7 code by coolstarorg

- Multiply speed by 1.5

 

My next step would be merge/clean up the byte_processing/interrupt handling.. I already did some work on that but have yet to commit changes.

 

I have a version 7 Alps but can't get this to work ?

I deleted all traces of any other versions of Voodoo in my SLE and my EFI

 

Install with KextWizard into my SLE .. Reboot nothing ? Running El Cap 10.11.6 

I also tried the updated test version as well.

 

Thanks

 

 

Here's the info on my V7

I checked the Linux driver for that id, and its an ALPS V8 TouchPad, so it won't work with that driver. I'll see the feasibility of adding that later.

Boot with the kext, and check the E7 and EC ids. Those are whats used to match the device.
