[SOLVED]Keyboard-Trackpad proper kext for Mojave
How is the trackpad experience on hackintosh laptops? Thread starter pastrychef Start date Jan 30, I'm considering purchasing a Dell or HP laptop and trying my hand at hackintoshing it. The one thing that concerns me is how the trackpad experience would be like. Do features like two finger scrolling and pinch to zoom work on a hackintosh laptop? If I do attempt this, I would probably be looking to purchase a used Haswell or Broadwell generation laptop to keep cost down.
Thanks in advance for your input. If you've used a MacBook then the trackpad will be absolute, almost unusable trash. If you come from Windows then it will be exactly the same.
Multitouch should work and so should gestures. But nowhere near as nice as a MacBook with its glass trackpad. God damm that thing was glorious. Thanks for the input. I've been finding out how it is first hand over the last two day. Yes, I agree with your assessment. The experience is quite bad when compared to Apple trackpads. I'm working with a Synaptics ClickPad. I guess I should be content to have this much functionality.
You should have gotten an Elantech chip based touchpad. I didn't know about the different touchpads that are available and still don't know how to find out what is used in different models of laptops Over the recent weeks, I've adjusted to this trackpad.
It's definitely nowhere near as good as those on MacBooks but it's functional enough for my simple needs on this laptop I'll look for it and give it a go. That's what we are here for, sharing knowledge and wisdom.
Make sure to modify the info. Hey guys, I am also looking to shift to Hackintosh on my laptop. The trackpad uses windows precision drivers. Would it support all the gestures in mac os?
Greetings, I hope that's okay when I write my Question here instead of open a new thread and maybe annoys someone.Joinsubscribers and get a daily digest of news, geek trivia, and our feature articles. Windows machines usually come with distinctive buttons on the mouse. On a Mac, things are a bit more hidden. The trackpad on a Macbook or the Magic Trackpad is a single piece of brushed aluminum. The newer MacBooks come with a Force Trackpad that emulates a click and provides haptic feedback the previous generations would actually click.
Just tap or click press down with two fingers. Instead, the entire top part of the mouse is clickable. If you click on the left side of the mouse, it will register as a left-click. In the same way, just click on the top-right section of the Magic Mouse for a right-click.
If the right-click button on your mouse or trackpad is broken, you can use the keyboard as a replacement.
