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.

Hi @RehabMan
Im fix that with change info.plist in
VoodooPS2Controller.kext>Contents>Plugin>VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext>Contents>info.plist

Im changed:
IOKitPersonalities>Synaptics TouchPad>Platform Profile>LENOVO>Thinkpad_ClickPad>ScrollResolution> 200
IOKitPersonalities>Synaptics TouchPad>Platform Profile>LENOVO>Thinkpad_ClickPad>SmoothInput>NO


And the same think in:
IOKitPersonalities>Synaptics TouchPad>Platform Profile>LENOVO>Thinkpad_TrackPad>ScrollResolution> 200
IOKitPersonalities>Synaptics TouchPad>Platform Profile>LENOVO>Thinkpad_TrackPad>SmoothInput>NO

Tried what?
VoodooPS2Controller.kext is working fine on 10.14.x.



Which keys are you referring to?
Why it is not working fine for me? I mean, trackpad works, but no gesture is working, neither scrolling with two fingers or tap with two fingers for right click.
