I just got a System76 Galago UltraPro, and I'm trying to hook it up with my Thunderbolt Display A1407.

I have tried by using both the Mini DisplayPort from the display to the computer, and a converter from HDMI to Mini DP, but none of those work.

As recommended by many posts on the web, I've also installed the additional drivers.

The graphics card is Intel® Iris Pro 5200 – 128 MB eDRAM.

Any ideas?

  • As you bought from System76 which designs their hardware to run with ubuntu, have you asked them for an answer? – Anthony Wong Jun 9 '15 at 16:27

    What did you end up doing? I am thinking of buying a system76 galago and I was wondering if it works with the thunderbolt displays. – costa Jan 20 '19 at 9:37

The only way it works for me is to use a Thunderbolt Docking Station like belkin thunderbolt 2 dock or kanex thunderbolt dock. with this both the apple thunderbolt display works as a Display but the ports (ethernet, firewire,usb) are not usable. so its not a cheap solution.
