Best part, every gesture works just as described. However, you may have to get accompanied with a few gestures with time. After the fix, the gestures are smooth and precise, just see the video.

The steps are simple and straightforward. All you have to do is download the VoddooI2C package (.zip). After downloading the package, follow these steps:

  1. Use EFI mounter or Clover configurator app to mount the EFI partition
  2. Extract the VoodooI2C package. The extracted folder contains 7 kext files
  3. Now depending on your trackpad type i.e find out from ‘Windows Device Manager‘ if the trackpad is Synaptics or Windows precision trackpad.
  4. If Synaptics trackpad, copy VoodooI2C.kext and VoodooI2CSynaptics.kext to EFI>Clover>Kexts>Other folder and reboot system.

Kext folder Location

  1. If FTE trackpad (mainly in ASUS laptops), copy VoodooI2C.kext and VoodooI2CFTE.kext to EFI>Clover>Kexts>Other folder and reboot system.
  2. If ELAN trackpad, copy VoodooI2C.kext and VoodooI2CELAN.kext to EFI>Clover>Kexts>Other folder and reboot system.
  3. If Atmel maXTouch touchscreen/touchpad, copy VoodooI2C.kext and VoodooI2CAtmelMXT.kext to EFI>Clover>Kexts>Other folder and reboot system.
  4. If Windows Precision trackpad, copy VoodooI2C and VoodooI2CHID to EFI>Clover>Kexts>Other and reboot

After reboot, Go to Settings and enable all the gestures. If you are not able to see the trackpad controls, follow this guide. Else, try using the gestures and you will be able to use most usable gestures including pinch zoom and two finger rotation.
