Install on iMac

Post by bouleusis » Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:47 am

Hello,

I created a USB pendrive with linux mint to run on an iMac. After starting by pressing Alt and selecting the pendrive, I get the first configuration of linux mint: select the language, but neither the wireless keyboard nor the wireless mouse from iMac work. What can I do?

Thanks

I ran into the same problem with my MacMini. I could never get them to connect to Mint. I resorted to purchasing a Logitech K400+ Bluetooth Keyboard. I plugged in the USB Bluetooth dongle/adapter and the Logitech keyboard worked on first boot without any configuration. Been using it for almost a year without any problems.
