[SOLVED] Lost trackpad and keyboard after installing PS/2 Keyboard/Mice

Hi,


My laptop trackpad used to work fine, but now it doesn't work at all. I had this problem on my first install, trackpad wasn't working out of the box, so I just installed PS/2 Keyboard/Mice from the latest Multibeast, and everything was OK.

So now, I reinstalled the system, reinstalled PS/2 Keyboard/Mice, rebooted, and trackpad was detected and working as a charm. Oddly, after another reboot, I lost my trackpad and my keyboard, none of these are detected. :/

I did resseach and found this thread, which is really similar to mine.

Most laptops use the PS2 interface for keyboard/mouse. There is no built-in support for PS2 in OS X, so you have to add drivers (kext) for it.

I think your laptop has Synaptics touchpad + Ultranav. So, you should be able to use my driver for keyboard/touchpad: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller

Be sure to read the README.md and follow the install instructions.

For a laptop, Easybeast should be considered a short term solution. Eventually, you will want to implement full power management.

I believe I understand the point better, by installing the PS2 driver, I must have.. broke something.
So I tried to install RehabMan driver, I'm sure my Lenovo Thinkpad E420 use a Synaptic touchpad with Ultranav (Check the Readme of the Lenovo provided driver: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/6hgx79ww.txt ); followed RehabMan Readme, done this:

Code:
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext

Installed VoodooPS2Controller.kext with Kextbeast;

Installed the daemon and rebooted:

Code:
sudo cp org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.Daemon.plist /Library/LaunchDaemons sudo cp VoodooPS2Daemon /usr/bin

For some reason, that did not brought the trackpad pad. I'm pretty sure the driver is correct with my laptop... :think:
Did I forgot to remove something in S/L/E, something that I installed and forgot to remove, that causes a conflict? Maybe "VoodooPS2Controller" ?

Thanks for helping out!

Repair permissions (Disk Utility) & rebuild cache (DPCI Manager). Be sure to correct any errors if there are errors from the cache rebuild.

Also, EC reset would be a good idea, especially if you've been mixing ps2 kexts. EC reset: shutdown, remove *ALL* power sources, hold power button 30 sec, put everything back and restart.

Repaired permissions, rebuilded cache - I wanted to save the log (there were warnings), but did not found any way to.
Rebuilding the cache again did not showed the warnings again (obviously).

I wonder how does EC reset would affect the operating system, OS X ? Well;

If I just wanted to reinstall all over, I would just have to install your kext, following the Readme, without installing the Multibeast kext, and this should work?

I would mention I get recurrent warning popup: "The kernel extension cannot be used: The kernel extension /System/Library/Extension wasn't installed properly and cannot be used." I don't know if it refer to your kext, or another kext I installed, not sure.

Thanks

It is an issue which will prevent cache from being rebuilt. You will need to fix it.

It referred to /System/Library/Extension/VoodooPS2Controller.kext. Should I delete it ?

If I attempt a clean install (again), installing just your kext would normally work?

Thanks for the info.

You must have the permissions set incorrectly or the kext is otherwise damaged.

I reinstalled it all again. XD Maybe I'll eventually get more confident with the stuff I modifiy.

I realised my Unibeast drive lacked "Laptop Support". I might have forgot to check it? :/ Installed with a USB mouse.

At first boot, I installed the kext made from you, rebooted, no change. In a desperate attempt, did not modified/removed anything, and installed the PS2 kext of Multibeast. That worked!

Trackpad and keyboard work perfect, and still do after several reboots. I might take a system image just in case now, everything is fully stable, and did not bloated the system with experimenting.

For referrence later, what shoud I do to enable trackpad? Did I did the correct choice? Did I simply had the install the Multibeast kext alone?

Thank you, I will mark the thread as solved.

Make sure you don't have two sets of kexts installed for PS2...

Actually, I do have 2 sets (Not surprised, I installed 2 sets after all), and the trackpad still works:

-VoodooPS2Controller.kext which is yours (Installed first. I'm not sure why it didn't worked);

-AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext + ApplePS2Controller.kext, which are the ones from Multibeast 6.3.0.

I would be tempted to keep the Multibeast drivers, since these fixed the problem. I was sure your would work, not sure why it didn't. Shall I delete VoodooPS2Controller, with the VoodooPS2Daemon ? Hope that won't break the trackpad from Multibeast.

So Multibeast kext was the way to go after all ?


Thanks for taking the time to help all the newbies. =)

Definitely a bad idea to have both. You are probably getting a mix of mine and the others or it could be random -- it is not guaranteed by OS X -- that is, not determinate.

I can't think of a reason why mine wouldn't work. Perhaps you didn't install it correctly. Always use Kext Wizard and always repair permissions (Disk Utility) & rebuild cache (DPCIManager) and resolve any errors in the log.
