We used a modified VoodooPS2Controller from Acidanthera, and that is what enables the multigesture support. Nothing to do with Catalina itself. I think if you use that kext on an older version of Catalina it should work, although I am currently on beta 8.
Thanks for your detailed reply.
In your latest release of catalina clover efi (10.5.0.3.2) , it shows that you still place voodooi2c and voodooi2chid under clover\kext\other , so I'm confused :(

Do you use latest version of voodoops2 (2.0.3) , or you modified the voodoops2 kext so it can also support touchscreen multitouch?

Would you mind post your ioreg ? Maybe @ben9923 can find out the reason :)

Also , if you have enough time , can you post a short video on youtube (maybe around 30 seconds) , demonstrating the touchscreen gesture and post the link here.

Thanks you a lot!

Ok. I just made this video demonstrating how everything is like (Sorry for the audio quality...I'm using a three year old iPad since I need it to stand up but it should be okay if you are interested in the contents) and the video is here:

@mdub you might be interested in this video as well, since you can see how this version of VoodooPS2Controller works on the touch screen.

I'll need to get my ioreg later, so I will just post this video here.

Ok I uploaded my ioreg (It's easier to do than I thought) and I am CCing @ben9923 to let him know about this issue.

See attachments.

Only Intel UHD 630 is displayed on the about this mac-graphics section.
Hi,I think the problem is the SSDT that disables the NVIDIA gpu.
You can try to remove it and start up with my procedure.
Let me know if it works!

In my guide there is everything I know about egpu.

Unfortunately, I had no luck. Thank you though! I will keep trying...

@jamesxxx1997 Nope, I was WRONG. Voodooi2C is USEFUL and is WORKING to enable the touchscreen support. I tried to remove it from /others and figured out how wrong I was. I released v3.3 to cleanup the /kexts folder as well as explaining this issue. Sorry for my misleading statements above!

Currently my focus is on getting thunderbolt 3 eGPU figure out somehow. (The word ”deprecated” I used was kinda misleading... I mean I decided not to use it) I can see why it is better to eventually transition to Voodooi2C but currently VoodooPS2Controller is working very well (at least in my standards) and I’d rather work more on the external graphics thing.

If we want the laptop to be a pro workstation, it is simply not enough to use intel UHD 630 (620 in your case) as GPU. iGPU is too weak. The displaylink solution I am currently using still has lag and does not contribute to the overall performance. Therefore, eGPU is necessary. I am using a RX 570 as a test card (got it for about 100 USD) so eventually we can hook up something like a Radeon VII to it. That will make it into a true WS.
Not for audio production! No dgpu is a good thing for audio, fewer clocking issues. Why do you video guys never think about us audio pros? Were like the bastard child of the modern mobile tech industry! :p

Still...not working. Apple logo shows one second then restart (Due to panic).
