updated Trackpad+Keyboard PS2 32/64 1.0


1 Screenshot

About This File

put both kexts in /S/L/E - remove any PS2 kexts you used before and do not mix with voodoops2.

Trackpad works as mouse, no fancy extras. 32 + 64bit, SL and Lion GM tested, works reliable.

UPDATE, a BETTER one - load only this (TRACKPAD.SYNAPTIC-GESTURE.zipe pack) from now on : have new stuff for us Laptop fans added : now trackpad with a working prefpane to enable click to tap and scroll :cool:

Screenshot of prefpane see here please : http://i53.tinypic.com/p2i49.png

instructions : remove old PS2controller.kext and AppleAcpiPS2nub.kext, replace with the same named kexts from new packages.

put the trackpad.prefpane in /LIBRARY/PREFPANES . Don't touch/remove the OSX built in trackpad prefpane ( which is in /System/Library/prefpanes) repair permissions with diskutility , reboot. Afterwards you can manage your trackpad via Systemsettings -> trackpad. tons of options to choose from, makes the trackpad fully work ( synaptics for me , 1finger scroll,2finger scroll,horizontal,vertical, tap to click ).

32 + 64bits, Snow and Lion GM tested and confirmed

I followed the instructions with the gestures package and the mouse keyboard all function correctly, however I am unable to enter the customized trackpad menu in system preferences. mouse tap works, but no multi finger gestures.

I just got a Kernel panic when using the arrow keys to scroll in a webpage, with this kext (which otherwise works beautifully, thanks so much for it!) installed. It seems I'm not the only one, lots of people report a similar problem (most of them fail to mention what kext they have installed, I'm assuming it's the standard Netbook Installer kext for PS2, which might be this very one): http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/dell-mini-10v-mac-os-x-discussion/21425-how-figure-out-kernel-panic.html

Setup: Lenovo G560 (Geforce 310M), plain vanilla OSX 10.6.8 with all the latest updates installed, extra kexts: This one, RealtekR1000.kext, IO80211Family.kext, VoodooHDA 2.72, VoodooBattery.kext

Oh, and it has a whitelisted modded BIOS installed (in case I want to use Broadcom-WLAN!) and a custom DSDT so it'll go to sleep...

..and I forgot to mention I'm on arch=i386, sorry! ;-) x86_64 works, too (mainly because of this extension making ps2nub 64bit-compatible, so thanks once more!), but there the webcam and Ethernet will not work for lack of 64bit-extensions...

I'm having the problem that the trackpad preferences don't seem to be saved permanently. They're kept for the current session, but if I reboot the system, they're reset (I'm always switching off horizontal scrolling). I'm assuming since this prefpane is sorta overlaid over Apple's touchpad prefpane that OSX overwrites the .plist on boot.... I can't quite find where the plists are stored, since I'm trying to writeprotect the file!

Works for Lion 10.7.1 on Asus X53E-SX399V laptop (uk) in 64bit for both keyboard and trackpad.

Used older synaptics set.

As mentioned, make sure ALL other ps2 kexts are gone, repair cache & permissions and use a kext installer.

removed voodoo PS/2, and Voodoo trackpad perf, installed with kext installer, installed trackpad perf to proper location and repaired permissions. Still get only the Apple trackpad perf with errors (no trackpad). Had to go back to Voodoo PS/2. I would like to get this working 64-bit.
