Hi there.
I have installed Maverick 10.9.5 via Probook 6.1.13 and chameleon on my HP 6470b, and everything used to work until somedays ago, when I tried to update to high sierra/clover.
it was so ugly in many aspects that I decided to go back to Maverick resuming my previous setup, I had saved cloning the whole disk on an external one.
Not everything worked as expected.
the touchpad did not work any more and whenever put my finger on it, it stucked and I could not use my usb mouse to operate it as well.
Reinstalling the whole voodooPS2 kext did not worked, and I did many different ways to reactivate it.
at the end of the day,mostly by casualty,
I took away voodooPS2trackpad from the package of the whole kext, and it worked again.
If I take away voodooPS2keyboard, the internal keyboard of the probook stops working
If i take away voodooPS2mouse, my external mouse keeps working, but the TOUCHPAD DOES NOT.
Looks as if the trackpad is driven by voodooPS2mouse. Is this correct?
Can you argue why it used to work with the whole kext package until some days ago,and now I have had to eliminate voodooPS2trackpad to get it working?
Thank you
Your laptop has a guide:

Hi,

the recent VoodooPSController is working fine with my Sony VAIO F11.

The only problems I have:

- mouse pointer speed on touchpad move is way too slow
- Side "scrollwheel" is way too fast

How can I set the speeds properly? Where is a documentation about that? Or do I have to bin-patch something?

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Eh man! I asked about available options in YOUR VoodooPS2Controller, esp. mouse pointer speed and "mouse wheel" side area speed.

No need to browse my whole config!

Please, c'mon don't always throw in that standard answer. I am using the recent VoodooPS2Controller form your github.
Must first verify you actually have Synaptics hardware.
No problem reporting files attached... so no possible way to verify that.
If you want my help, you must do things my way.
Your choice.

Some of the settings you're asking about are changed in SysPrefs (Trackpad, Accessibility).
But if you installed things incorrectly, you won't be able to access them...

That is for devices that send mutliplexed mouse packets mixed in with the trackpad data, such as devices which have a trackpoint.

Ok,

it loads these kexts:
Code:
   39    3 0xffffff7f82da4000 0xb000     0xb000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Controller (1.8.29) 156B13B8-21C7-3427-B029-6CF5981CCFE7 <11 7 5
  80    0 0xffffff7f82dd7000 0x6000     0x6000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Keyboard (1.8.29) 640F3AE7-20DF-30AD-AF71-A4AB2F0E2024 <41 39 15 7 6 5 4 3 1>
   81    0 0xffffff7f82ddd000 0xc000     0xc000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Trackpad (1.8.29) B9C21386-BD72-30C2-8F5A-6BF592072418 <41 39 15 7 6 5 4 3 1>
   83    0 0xffffff7f82dd0000 0x4000     0x4000     org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Mouse (1.8.29) 5D36A7A3-FB24-3D89-9E5E-7954F6E7E6DF <41 39 5 4 3>
In the ioreg (attached below) I only find "PS2Mouse" devices, but no "PS2Trackpad", if I search for "ps2".

So I assume we are looking at "org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.PS2Mouse" instead.

In the Info.plist of that driver, under IOKitPersonalities/ApplePS2Mouse/Platform Profile/Default" I found these values:
Code:
ActLikeTrackpad = NO
ButtonCount = 2
DefaultResolution = 240
ScrollResolution = 5
How do I have to set these values, if I want to
- speed up mouse pointer movement
- slow down wheel scrolling border
- enable double-finger-tap for right click
?

EDIT: nvm, found good values now, see ApplePSMouse plugin in VoodooPSControlller here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-sierra-macosx-10-12-6-on-sony-vaio-f11.242544/

If you're seeing VoodooPS2Mouse in ioreg, it means your trackpad is not Synaptics.
You can set ActLikeTrackpad (via ACPI) to get more "trackpad" features from the mouse kext, but it is no substitute for a PS2 kext specific to your trackpad hardware.

If 10.12.x or later:
SysPrefs->Accessibility->Mouse & Trackpad

If 10.11.x or earlier:
SysPrefs->Trackpad
