I've just successfully installed Ubuntu 14.04 (Linux 3.13.0-30) on my Macbook pro retina (11,1) (this model has only an Intel GPU); following this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro11-1/Saucy

If I plug the external Thunderbolt display after the system is loaded, nothing happens; if I plug it before the boot, it was activated but the startup process requires up to 20 mins.

Also, after 5-10 minutes of usage, the system starts to run very slow 'til it completely stucks.

What I can do about this? Many thanks in advance


It works when you install the drm-intel-next kernel from the mainline ppa. But I observe some fan issues then. see my last question.

    Thanks for contributing to AU. Could you please provide more information on to how to install it. Also it's unclear to what other question you are referring to. – MadMike Oct 21 '14 at 8:27
  • Thanks for help, I'm researching on the new fan issues as well. – marcogualtieri Oct 21 '14 at 14:39
