Hi, I have msi gs65 8sf and since HDMI and DisplayPort are connected to dGPU, connecting an external monitor through them is not possible.
Question: is it possible to connect type-c via usb using the type-c to hdmi adapter to connect an external monitor? If the answer is yes then how will this be achieved? or buy usb displaylink?

Yes, you just need to use a usb type c dongle

asked this question because I didn’t succeed when I connected various type-c to hdmi adapters, did you have a real experience connecting via type-c? I didn’t succeed

Hello, My Synaptic touchpad now works with 3-finger movements thanks to kext voodooPS2Controller version 2.1.4. The problem that remains is that the two physical buttons do not work. Do you have any idea on the subject? I didn’t look too much or look.Thanks in advance

Hello,

Thanks for the tutorial etc...
I'm on MSI GE73VR (i7 7700HQ & GTX 1070)

I come from functional high sierra.
But on catalina like that everything is functional except the sound, I have my integrated input card detect but impossible to have sound...

I tried to change the layout-id using AppleALC, AppleHDA nothing works... I also tried the Voodoo kext...

If someone could enlighten me, thank you :)

Hi everyone

Thanks to this guide I could install Catalina in my laptop MSI GF72 7RE. But I've got a lot of issues with the post-installation.

Can somebody give me advices or links that can help me to solve the following issues:
- Brightness keys doesn't work and solution of this post doesn't work
- Control MSI backlight RGB keyboard doesn't work (SSKeyboardHue app from this post don't recognize the keyboard).

Hi everyone

Thanks to this guide I could install Catalina in my laptop MSI GF72 7RE. But I've got a lot of issues with the post-installation.

Can somebody give me advices or links that can help me to solve the following issues:
- Disable the NVIDIA GPU (I tried method in this post but it seems to do nothing). How I can detect if it's working ??
- USBInjectorAll gives me problems and freeze the laptop. Using USBPorts kext from this post I colud do the installation but now although it seems that USB ports are working I think they are limited because in System Information max speed is 12 Mbps.
- Sleep doesn't work
- Brightness keys doesn't work and solution of this post doesn't work
- Control MSI backlight RGB keyboard doesn't work (SSKeyboardHue app from this post don't recognize the keyboard).

I also have a good new: with VoodooPS2Controller kext from acidanthera, synaptic works as trackpad accepting 3 fingers movements and much more (buttons don't work but they are no necessary because you can do anythonk with one two or 3 fingers on synaptic).

Thanks in advance for your help.
As per rules, please update your hardware profile to allow others to help you easier

please read the faq for proper hardware profile setup:

Hello,
Thanks a lot for your excellent guide, almost everything works. I have been trying for more than 2-3 weeks, with various guides. One issue: when I try to apply patches using plist editor, it says error...found a non-key, line 484. Any advise? Thanks again.

As stated in the pList editor, there is a missing value in line 484. That's as much as I can say since I do not have the file. Also, Please read post https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ealth-thin-catalina-10-15.285523/post-2148966
