I have Acer Aspire E5-572G [having Core i5-4210M and NVIDIA Geforce 940M 2GB ] and installed Sierra 10.12.2.
I have got intelgraphics , brightness ,audio (ALC 283) and wifi (atheros ar956x) working by following guides on this site.

But, Trackpad is not working, only keyboard is working after I have installed VoodooPS2Controller.kext . (I think trackpad is synaptics as I install synaptics driver on windows. )
webcam is not working too ( when I open FaceTime , it shows no camera found)
I have installed Nvidia web drivers but I think card is not being detected.
Battery is draining very fast.

Plz guide me how to resolve above issues and what else do I need to do (applying patches or other tweaks etc) to get a fully working Mac.

Thanks.

ACPI is not patched correctly. Based on ACPI/origin, you should have in ACPI/patched:
DSDT.aml
SSDT.aml (ssdtPRgen.sh)
SSDT-0.aml
SSDT-1.aml
SSDT-2.aml
SSDT-6.aml
SSDT-7.aml

Don't forget about correct settings for DropOem and SortedOrder.
Read guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-laptop-dsdt-ssdts.152573/

You have no patched AppleHDA components installed, so it is not a surprise that audio is not working.
Your config.plist is setup for AppleHDA_ALC283.kext (from my u430 repo), but it is not installed.

I don't see a PS2 trackpad in ioreg. So your trackpad is probably I2C.

USB is not implemented correctly. Plan on custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext. See here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.173616/

Power management not implemented. See guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-native-power-management-for-laptops.175801/

Hi Tony,

Can you share your clover configuration for the same laptop? Thanks in advance!
