@RehabMan, can you tell me whether this guide will work with Mojave, I am currently using ApplePS2SmartTouchpad that identifies the trackpad but god its awful to use. Touches are sometimes registered twice, drag and drop is awful and additional gestures just doesn't work. If this guide does not apply to my laptop for Mojave, can you please guide me to the one that would be valid?

Regards

If you have an issue, you must describe it clearly and attach problem reporting files as per FAQ.
None attached.
Read FAQ:

The guide previously linked has a link to the current VoodooPS2Controller.kext build.

Hi Rehabman, why with ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext my trackpad get very high velocity and with VoodooPS2 not?
Is to much slow, if compare with SmartTouchPad, in 2 fingers scrolling to navigate on web.
Its very nice to be use Voodoo because my keyboard was complete with your kext!!
Lenovo Thinkpad E470 with 10.14.3
Would be fix to me, please?

I have no experience with ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext and no plans to ever use it (as it is closed source in violation of the APSL).

VoodooPS2Controller.kext can be configured as you like (in SysPrefs or by overriding various Info.plist settings with ACPI). For ACPI overrides refer to *.dsl in the github repo for examples.

Note that VoodooPS2Controller.kext is not optimized for ELAN hardware. Full source is available if you would like to add better support for ELAN.
