The ISO in from this repo should allow you to install ubuntu without using an external keyboard or mouse on a MacBook Pro 16,1. It work in my MacBook Pro 16,1.
UBUNTU 20.04 ISO with Apple T2 patches built-in (Macbooks produced >= 2018).
Apple T2 drivers are integrated with this iso.
This repo is a rework of the great work done by @mikeeq
I'm using the Kernel from - https://github.com/marcosfad/mbp-ubuntu-kernel
Using additional drivers:
- Apple T2 (apple-bce) (audio, keyboard, touchpad)
- Touchbar (apple-ibridge, apple-ib-tb, apple-ib-als)
Bootloader is configure correctly out of the box. No workaround needed.
IF YOU UPDATE THE KERNEL, REMEMBER TO ADD THE REQUIRED DRIVERS AGAIN. Check https://github.com/marcosfad/mbp-ubuntu/blob/master/files/chroot_build.sh to see how it is done.
- Reduce the size of the mac partition in MacOS
- Download ISO file from releases.
- Copy it to a USB using dd (or gdd if installed over brew):
diskutil list # found which number has the USB diskutil umountDisk /dev/diskX sudo gdd bs=4M if=ubuntu-20.04-5.6.10-mbp.iso of=/dev/diskX conv=fdatasync status=progress
- Boot in Recovery mode and allow booting unknown OS
- Restart and immediately press the option key until the Logo come up
- Select "EFI Boot" (the third option was the one that worked for me)
- Launch Ubuntu Live
- Use Ubiquity to install (just click on it)
- Select the options that work for you and use for the partition the following setup:
- Leave the efi boot as preselected by the installer. Your Mac will keep on working with out problems.
- Add a ext4 partition and mounted as /boot (1024MB)
- Add a ext4 partition and monted as / (rest)
- Run the installer (In my case it had some problem removing some packages at the end, but this is no real problem)
- Shutdown and remove the USB Drive
- Start again using the option key. Select the new efi boot.
- Put wifi firmware files to
- tutorial - https://github.com/mikeeq/mbp-fedora-kernel/#working-with-mbp-fedora-kernel
- this is not working with MBP 16,1
- To install additional languages, install appropriate langpack via apt
sudo apt-get install language-pack-[cod] language-pack-gnome-[cod] language-pack-[cod]-base language-pack-gnome-[cod]-base
- You can change mappings of ctrl, fn, option keys (PC keyboard mappings) by creating
/etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conffile and recreating grub config. All available modifications could be found here: https://github.com/free5lot/hid-apple-patched
# /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf options hid_apple swap_fn_leftctrl=1 options hid_apple swap_opt_cmd=1
- I switch the touchbar to show f* by default. If you like another configuration, change /etc/modprobe.d/apple-tb.conf or remove it.
- To update grub, run:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
- Sound is not working after the install. Follow the instructions detailed by @kevineinarsson: https://gist.github.com/kevineinarsson/8e5e92664f97508277fefef1b8015fba
- Checksum is failing for 2 files: md5sum.txt and /boot/grub/bios.img
Not working (Following the mikeeq/mbp-fedora)
- Dynamic audio input/output change (on connecting/disconnecting headphones jack)
- TouchID - (@MCMrARM is working on it - https://github.com/Dunedan/mbp-2016-linux/issues/71#issuecomment-528545490)
- Thunderbolt (is disabled, because driver was causing kernel panics (not tested with 5.5 kernel))
- Microphone (it's recognised with new apple t2 sound driver, but there is a low mic volume amp)
- ISO is using gzip initramfs. It would be great to change it lz4
- Optimize the software installed.
Known issues (Following the mikeeq/mbp-fedora)
- Kernel/Mac related issues are mentioned in kernel repo
ctrl+xis not working in GRUB, so if you are trying to change kernel parameters - start your OS by clicking
ctrl+shift+f10on external keyboard
