First off, thanks for posting instructions and EFI folder.

I like using the trackpoint, so I spent some time on it. I'm not sure which were the exact things that got it working, but this is what I did:

  • Delete EFI/CLOVER/kextx/Other/VoodooPS2Controller.kext
  • Download from -- this uses a modified version of the kext by tluck for T420/T460
  • Reduce sensitivity by modifying that version's VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext/Contents/Info.plist : change all MouseMultiplierX and MouseMultiplierY to 2
  • Copy that new kext to /Library/Extensions
sudo cp -RH VoodooPS2Controller.kext /Library/Extensions/
sudo kextcache -I /Volumes/<your vol name>
   sudo cp org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.Daemon.plist /Library/LaunchDaemons
   sudo cp Release/VoodooPS2Daemon /usr/bin

With that, the trackpoint and buttons work. You can also toggle disabling the trackpad by pressing PrtSc.

BTW, I think there's a problem with shutting down with USB devices connected that makes it restart instead, but I haven't played with this much.

For me it was a little bit different, while swapping keyboards and due a damaged trackpad, I discovered the following - just disconnect the cable going to the trackpad, and the trackpoint then works instead.

I disable trackpad in BIOS, and trackpoint work!
