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

It works on Asus VX7 but there's one sad thing: When I use my touchpad as a mouse, the cursor moves very smooth and precisely but when I use it as a trackpad the cursor moves very imprecisely (moving/jumping by 3-4 pixels). How to fix that?

in Mountain Lion 10.8, I get the following message after rebooting and trying to change the preferences.

"?Trackpad? preferences is installed with Mac OS X and can't be replaced."

when using the prefpane you included in the zip package placed where you indicated.

Otherwise, I have tap and scroll, tap and highlight, regular one-finger operation.

Any ideas?

Doesn't work for me, still cannot modify trackpad in 10.8 Mountain Lion

For all those who cannot get the Trackpad Preference to load (Track Pad not found), I had the same scenario, to fix I deleted the ApplePs2Mouse.kext from within the included (in the package) ApplePS2Controller.kext.

Right click on the ApplePS2Controller.kext -> Show Package Contents -> go into Contents -> then into the Plugin directory -> delete ApplePS2Mouse.kext (do all this while the ApplePS2Controller.kext is still on the desktop, install using Kext Wizard in S/L/E, repair permissions and update cache using Kext Wizard. Reboot, that should do it.
