Hi. I'm using RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller.kext for my Asus K501UB-DM039D, El Capitan 10.11.5 with clover bootloader.
The keyboard is working fine but the touchpad doesn't work.
Could you help me with this? What information should i get to you?
Many thanks in advance!!!

You probably have an ELAN trackpad (which is not supported by my kext). Verify, then search for PS2 kexts specifically for the trackpad you have.

Also, some new laptop trackpads use I2C, not PS2...

You're right, it's certainly I2C. Is this bad news? :(

There is early work going on with I2C. Probably still very rough. You should use search/google.

But you certainly should not expect a PS2 driver to help with a device connected via I2C...
