Re: installed Mint on macbook without wifi (no internet connection)

I have Linux on a MacBook Pro 13" from 2012, and the driver is automatically detected by the install process on Mint, and it is the 'bcmwl-kernel-source'. The only problem I have with it now is about the fans, that hit continously on Firefox when I am on Youtube. I am trying to solve it.

Re: Fan control imac 8.1

Hi,
If I install it, the fans are aaaall the time on, and it's a pain to view any youtube video (for example). I think it's not compatible with my model 10,1.

[Firefox 86] Swipe with 2 fingers ?

Hi all,
I have Epiphany and Firefox 86 installed on my MacBookPro 'minted'. Why the hell I can swipe right and left with 2 fingers to back/forward history on Epyphany, and not on Firefox ?

Thanks in advance

Try to install the newer Kernel 5.8 and see what happens. It's very easy from the update system icon.

Re: Fan control imac 8.1

I am on a MacBook Pro Retina 2012, and I am actively searching for that, without results for now. All the info I have learned about fans on macs, give the same result: it's not possible to control the fans on Linux. If I find anything, I will post you here. For the moment, play with the powertop / c...

Re: [MacBook Pro 15" Retina 2012] Trying to refine Graphic issues

Installed tlp and tlpui (graphic user interface), and a tool named powertop that I have found on WWW. We will see how it performs now, on battery usage time terms. One think I do not understand, is when I am looking on youtube videos: If I use de nouveau driver, the fans don't spin because the %CPU ...
