Very Satisfied

Post by Tsolum »

Hello everyone, been using Linux 2o odd years now. I have used a lot of distros in my time. From Xandros, Sabayon, Vector, Debian, Ubuntu, Pclinuxos and a too many too list. Have been using Linux Mint now for the past five years or so. My old laptop became a brick so took my mid 2014 Macbook Pro and installed Linux Mint onto it. The only problem I had was the install would not install the wifi driver automatically once the install was finished.

Seeing this laptop cannot connect to the internet except by wifi, grabbed the drivers out of the pool folder, dragged them to the desktop, clicked away and they installed. Problem solved. Heat was another issue but installed the programs needed to control the fans. One item I cannot get to work is the camera, but then I really do not need it so not worried about it. Otherwise this is experience has been very satisfying. To the people that develop this OS, Thank you!
