I have installed Xubuntu 12.10 on a MacBook Pro 5,3. The problem is that after a normal boot the lightdm shows up but I cannot use the keyboard nor touchpad.

However if I choose recovery mode: 'Ubuntu, with Linux 3.5.0-19-generic (recovery mode)' and chose resume I have keyboard and touchpad when lightdm shows up.

How can I have a this working for a normal boot sequence ?
