Macbook Pro 14,1 issues

Post by liam1213 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 6:26 am

Hi, I hope this is the right area to put this.

I have installed Mint as a dual boot on my MacBook Pro and have run in to a few problems:

1. Grub didn't install (I don't think this is a big issue as I can still boot in to the partition using rEFInd)

2. Keyboard and touchpad are not working.

I have seen the GitHub with how to fix the issues but they are not very detailed and what I did manage to do didn't work. Will Mint ever end up supporting the keyboard and touchpad out of the box? if not is there a step by step guide to fixing this issue?

I have the same machine and I just installed LM 19. Did you find a solution elsewhere?

I'm using my MacBook Pro to reply to this post but I'm using a USB mouse and keyboard :(
sudo apt-get --purge remove macOS
