Proper keyboard layout recognition with VoodooPS2Controller (e.g. Latitude E Series)

Recommended Posts

Temporarily replace ApplePS2Controller with VoodooPS2Controller. Reboot and switch back.

Have an USB keyboard and mouse available just in case.

No luck.

 

After switching back and forth, the button came back. I pressed the button, nothing happened, no assistant came up.

After closing the system settings and reopening it, the button was gone again.

 

Is there any plist that can be edited?

Can the assistant be started manually?

Yes, the manually step is to click on the Change Keyboard Type, but it seems it's not appearing for you.

You could try switching to English Virtual keyboard, see if you could set it that way.

No, the kext is really old and no update has been done by the developer and that ISO option does not seem to exist in any of the info.plist

didn't work.

is there any alternative to appleps2controller beside voodoops2controller?

I checked all available keyboard, none of them has 11 key in the row between the shift keys.

how are keyboards defined in osx?

I thought I already mentioned it, there's no ISO entry info.plist in ApplePS2Controller.kext. Only way is to switch it to ISO type is from what I already  showed you a few posts back.

If you open the content of ApplePS2Controller, you'll see the plugin folder with the keyboard kext, but you won't see anything to modify in the info.plist.

Got this.

In the kext or somewhere else in the system there must be file which holds the mappings for each type of keyboard.

where is this?

where does the system save the system save the settings which keyboard to use?
