Hi @marcovitale,
I am using 2.1.4. The only Voodoo* files in my Library/Extensions are VoodooI2C.kext, VoodooI2CHID.kext and VoodooPS2Controller.kext (just keep from this tutorial).
I changed because I wasn't satisfied with the scroll, but I found out not only the scroll is better with VoodooI2C, you also get almost all gestures working very well. Touchscreen is also improved.
Note: I also switched from FakeSMC to VirtualSMC. I don't know if it's required to have VoodooI2C working well, though.

Remember to disable some Apple trackpad drivers that prevent VoodooI2C from being loaded.
You can delete them or disable from your Clover config. I don't remember exactly which ones are them, but they were 2. I'll have to leave for your research this time.

Hey,

I have tried installing all the Voodoo drivers but I have noticed no difference after doing so. I guess I need to disable the apple trackpad drivers like you said. Any ideas on exactly what I need to do?

Try adding -cdfon to the boot arguments

I used Clover Configurator. To test it out though, on Clover Bootloader, go to Config -> Boot Options -> Type "-cdfon" (no quotes), then click space on the boot entry, you should now see it is booting with -cdfon.
