Hello everyone!
I have successfully installed mac os x catalina on my hp envy n haswell laptop but there are still some problems.
With the use of the latest voodoops2controller kext my keyboard works very well including the brightness keys but the alps touchpad doesn't work. So i found a voodoops2controller.kext which i have attached it and through which my alps trackpad works good but the keyboard doesn't work natively like brightness keys doesn't work.
I tried to merge these both kexts but couldn't succeeded.
Also I am using an external usb speaker for my laptop and while i am listening to songs on catalina, after about 3 minutes the sound gets bad like usb speaker is damaged and for it i have to unplug and replug the usb each after 3 minutes but however on windows and other laptops it is working well, also sometimes catalina hangs while on lid close and on shutdown.
Any help would be appreciable
Thank you in advance

Same Issue Here, ALPS Touchpad not Working.
were you able to make it work.
I switched from clover to OC this week. I was using this kext for my ALPS touchpad and it worked fine in Mojave.

During the installation of Catalina with OC, using that kext, the trackpad works fine. IE, tap to click, double-tap-drag, 2 finger scroll. And also in recovery it works fine. Booting up normally I lose tap to click and double tap drag. 2 finger scroll still works, but I can't drag at all, holding the physical button and trying to drag does strange things.

I tried to see if installing the kext to L/E would change anything, so I rebooted to recovery (working fine), disable SIP (csrutil disable), reboot, enter password (worked fine)... then both keyboard and trackpad totally stopped working. Using a usb keyboard and mouse I installed the kext to L/E, rebooted into recovery, enabled SIP, rebooted again.

After all that Im back where I started, same limited funcionality of the trackpad. Keyboard works fine, with fn keys working properly too.

I've tried other voodoops2controller.kext I've found around the place with slightly different results. The most updated one from acidanthera here fixes tap to click but loses 2 finger scroll...

I'm really confused as to why it works properly in recovery but not in the full os.. Anyone have any ideas?
