I am a MacBook user and I tried to run Ubuntu 18.04 on a MacBook Pro 2017 15-inch yesterday. Ubuntu Live USB can boot normally, but the keyboard and touchpad are completely unusable, so nothing can be done except shutting down. How can I solve this problem?


For the MacBook Pro 2016 to 2017 you will need an external USB keyboard and Wifi to get work with Linux: https://nixaid.com/linux-on-macbookpro/
